SENIOR PICTURE FAQs
Q: WHEN DO I HAVE TO HAVE MY SENIOR PICTURES TURNED IN?
A: Yearbook Adviser and English Department Head Dr. Ingle needs the formal picture by the time we leave for winter break and the casual pose by January 31, 2017.
Q: DO I HAVE TO USE PRESTIGE/LIFETOUCH?
A: No. Prestige/Lifetouch is HHS’s contracted photographer for sports and underclass pictures. Prestige/Lifetouch is a sure-fire way to make sure formals (and/or casuals) get to Dr. Ingle, provided they are taken in time.
Q: WHEN IS THE LATEST I CAN GET MY PICTURE TAKEN BY PRESTIGE/LIFETOUCH?
A: Prestige/Lifetouch will come to HHS this fall—Wednesday, December 7, 2016—for prescheduled senior portrait sittings. An appointment sign-up sheet will be in the office by the first week of November; be sure and watch/listen for announcements on the school web site <www.hhs.catoosa.k12.ga.us>, on the yearbook web site <www.hhsgeneraljournal.com>, and during the daily announcements. Before then, you can talk to Prestige (423 892-1332) for an appointment. In order to make the deadline—if you choose to use Prestige—your appointment should be made no later than the end of November.
Q: IF I DECIDE TO USE A PHOTOGRAPHER OTHER THAN PRESTIGE/LIFETOUCH FOR MY FORMALS, WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW?
A: The photo must be portrait-oriented (NOT landscape). Girls: black/navy drape; boys: tux (worn, not draped over shoulder) and black/navy bow tie. The background must be neutral (no scenics). You must conform to the county dress code. No props (roses, etc.).
Q: HOW DO I GET THE FORMAL SHOT TO DR. INGLE?
A: You can email him a high-quality JPEG, TIF or GIF <firstname.lastname@example.org>, or you can bring it in on a thumb drive or CD to upload. He can also scan a hard copy for you, provided it doesn’t have any watermark on it (e.g. “PROOF”).
Q: WHAT ABOUT THE CASUAL PICTURE?
A: It does not have to be a studio/professional shot, but it does have to be clear and high-quality. Attire must follow the county dress code.
Q: WHAT IF I HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS?
A: Email Dr. Ingle at <email@example.com>. This is a much better method than a phone call. Dr. Ingle checks his email several times per day and can answer quicker than by phone.
