If you are including cardholder photos in your card designs, you will want a quick and easy want to take those photos. You can of course use your phone or a personal camera, but small photo ID cameras are designed to work your computer and card design software.

Photo ID Cameras

Photo ID cameras help you capture the high quality cardholder photos that many businesses rely on for building security – safety and security staff can authorize visitors to the site by looking for any number of security features and visually checking the card’s photo to the cardholder.

These cameras are designed to hook up right to your computer or laptop so you can easily grab the photos from the camera’s database and use them in your card designs.

Other Photography Supplies

In addition to a camera, having several other supplies on hand will make it easier to take cardholder photos.

Tripods keep your camera stead to prevent blurry or out-of-focus photos, and help ensure that each photo is taken at the same height. Small tripods are easy to store when not in use.

Photo backdrops don’t need to be like the brightly colored backgrounds from school photos – a solid colored background will help ensure a standard look across all cardholder photos without distracting from the subject of the photo.
