Your time slots don't work for me, may I make an off-cycle request?
Yes. However, due to our production schedule standard portrait fees will apply. Please click the 'Service Request Forms' button on this page to get started.

What should I wear?
We recommend business/business casual attire. We only ask that you avoid wearing white since the portrait is taken against a white backdrop. Please come dressed and ready prior to your scheduled appointment.

Where do I check in?
Please come to 665 Broadway, 11th floor, Room 1109 New York, NY 10012, USA. One of our in-house photographers will check you in then escort you to the studio space. Signage on our floor will direct you to the Photo Bureau offices.

When will I receive my photos?
The post-production process takes at least one week. Web gallery will be delivered to the e-mail address you have provided on the Google Calendar.
