 Studio Rules

1.  Uniform appearance is an individual responsibility.  The Photographer is NOT responsible for your dress and appearance.  Please come with uniform IAW AR 670-1.  The Photographer will not correct you.  If there
is a glaring mistake such as missing Regimental Crest, the photographer will cancel the appointment and have you reschedule.

 What to Wear

What Do I Wear?
Per AR -640 5.c  the only Authorized uniforms for DA Photos are Class A Greens and the new ASU and other uniform will be denied. Shoes and headgear are not needed. All permanent awards, including State awards, ARE to be worn. Soldiers are responsible for making sure that their uniforms are squared away. It is highly recommended that you carry your uniform with you and change at the latrines on the facilities. Command Photos are taken in ACUs. Official guidance for wear of uniforms can be found at:,-Training-and-Mobilization/DA-Photo.aspx.

 Whom is Required a DA Photo


All Officers, Warrant Officers, and NCOs of the rank E6 and above must have a current DA Photo on file.

If you have been promoted, received a major award, or your photo is more than 5 years old, than it needs updating.

 Some boards require that your DA Photo be an even more recent one.

Soldiers will not receive a physical copy of their photo, and their image will be uploaded to the DAPMIS system. Upon acceptance through AKO/DA photo link, it will become your official DA Photo in your IPERMS file.

What is the difference between a DA Photo and Other Photos If you are an E-5 and below  and your chain of command is requesting a package for a promotion board or awards board this is NOT an Official DA Photo and has to be obtained at the Solider/Airmen own expense at a local photo studio or by a professional photographer.
















 Whom can take a DA Photo

AR 640-30 states that a Official DA Photo must be taken at a DA Photograph Management Information System (DAPMIS) approved facilities by a photographer whom has a DAPMIS account.  Photographers taken at other locations or by an unauthorized photographer can NOT be turned in and uploaded into DAPMIS by JFHQ or any DAPMIS facility.
