HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah --

Studio appointments to get an official photo taken at Hill Air Force Base can now be booked online.

Previously, appointments were made exclusively by phone by calling the photo studio during business hours. The new website provides customers the expediency of scheduling an appointment from their computer or personal device.

“The online scheduling tool is really about enhanced convenience,” said Richard Essary, 75th Air Base Wing Public Affairs. “Now, customers can call up a website 24/7 and schedule a studio session, which also generates an email reminder about the appointment.”

The new site has helped reduce no shows and administrative overhead for the staff. In 2019, the base's photographers supported more than 1,600 photo assignments. A large portion of those were photo studio appointments.

“We have three base photographers to support a customer-base of more than 25,000 at Hill,” said Essary. “As a result, it’s important that we continue to find simple yet innovative approaches to how we support photography requests for the installation.”

The PA studio is located in building 1267 and provides head-shoulder and full-length portraits by appointment for military and federal civilian employees. In addition, it provides official government passport and other photo services on a walk-in basis for the base and most of its mission partners.

Hours of operation are 8-11:30 a.m. and 12:30-3:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The studio is closed Mondays and Fridays.

The scheduling website is https://hillphoto.setmore.com. You can also visit the Hill AFB website at www.hill.af.mil and click the “photo studio” icon to schedule an appointment and to learn more about photo studio services.
