Also, borders will be added to the embarkation photo with the ship name and date.
Thanks for your reply, but maybe you misread my question. NEVER did I say a Shutters photographer would use my camera. I said the PEOPLE BEHIND ME in the line.

Assuming the nice cruisers behind us are willing to snap a pic, a favor we would return!
I bet the good folks in line would help you out!

And, I've had folks do this when we have lined up for formal shots too by the grand staircase; they took my family's pics with my camera, and I took theirs with their camera.

This hasn't been our experience. Yes, Shutters photographers aren't allowed to use personal cameras, but any photo location that has a DCL CM assisting the photographer, the DCL CM can use your camera to take a picture (at the same time the Shutters photographer is taking his/her picture). With or without characters.

As well as asking the next person in line if they don't mind doing it has been done.

Thanks, PoohJen and PrincessShmoo! I'm glad to read that the Shutters photographers don't put restrictions on us taking our own pics! I don't plan to be in many myself, but certainly want to have pics of my kids with my own camera in case I cannot afford to purchase all the Shutters ones!

We always skip the embarkation photo, no problem. We hate that they waste all of that paper/ those prints so we don't contribute to it at all.

After 6 cruises we stopped doing the embarkation picture. There is usually a walking lane to the right that is roped off from the photographer's area. We simply walk that way and never have anyone speak to us because they are busy taking care of the people who do want pictures.

You cannot skip the picture they need to take of you that will pop up when you run your KTTW card to get off & on the ship. That is done when you check in, however. My family typically just tells the photographers that we are not interested in doing the embarkation photo shortly after entering the walkway to board. They are always fine with it and just motion us on through. We often tell photographers in the dining room that we aren't interested in photos and they have always been very nice about it and moved on to the next table. No pressure to buy or have photos taken if you don't want them.

We had the opposite happen to us. We were told that we had to have the photo for facial recognition.

Not true. Once you start getting pictures taken onboard they will link your KTTW card to your images and go from there.

That's what I thought because I had read posts where others mentioned skipping it and that was our plan but the lady was adamant that we have the photo taken for recognition. We went ahead and had it taken but I didn't understand why it was necessary.

Strange. We bypassed the line and the photographers didn't say a word.

DCL also had our KTTW pics on file from a previous cruise so they didn't even retake those. That was on the Fantasy last fall. When we cruised on the Wonder in May they insisted on retaking our KTTW pics.

We've had the same KTTW picture for a couple of years (5 cruises) now. I guess our looks haven't changed enough for them to want to re-shoot.

I found it strange myself because I've read on here how it's not a big deal at all but when we started walking past, she said we needed to have our pic made and we told her we weren't interested in the embarkation photo. She said everyone had to have their photo taken for the facial recognition. My DH and I just looked at each other and said ok.

They still have our KTTW pics on file from last year and did not retake those. This was in May on the Dream.
