Learning Event 1:
PLAN FOR A PHOTOGRAPHIC ASSIGNMENT
Introduction. When your commander has a briefing for an upcoming FTX, he
is planning for that FTX. Your section chief does the same thing. Before you
drive to your next duty station, you will look at a map to determine the best
route. Before you shoot a photo mission, you must also plan what you are going
to do, when you are going to do it, and how you will accomplish it.
learning event deals with planning, work orders, mission coordination, and
selecting and inspecting equipment. All of these factors are important to your
mission. Remember, plan ahead.
Coordination. Suppose you receive a request to shoot in a war zone. You
need to know what equipment is necessary, where you will be in the battle, and
will you be supported by the requester. When given an assignment for any type
of photographic subject you must always prepare yourself and your equipment
prior to leaving your unit.
a. The first thing to do is check your DA Form 3903 (Training-Visual
Information Work Order); get as much information as you can from this form. If
you have questions, ask your NCOIC to clarify those points. If your NCOIC is
not available, or he does not have the information, then contact the unit or
individual requesting the assignment.
