Contributors Tim Olk and Larry Shapiro are currently working together to provide fire departments with the opportunity to have professional photos of their personnel. For many years, departments have been documenting officers, firefighters, and staff for historical purposes as well as maintaining current photos for a host of other reasons.

Additionally, in the unlikely event that a department member is lost, having access to a professional portrait helps to insure that their memory can be preserved with honor and dignity.

  • One offering is formal portraits with Class A uniforms.

  • Also available is a full-length portrait with turn-out gear that can be reproduced with any one of a number of different backgrounds. Multiple images can be combined to include a company, a full shift, or the entire department.
