It is the policy of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport that photography costs are kept to a minimum and services are provided in-house by staff. Where services are contracted, best value is sought and a number of quotes are obtained. Services are contracted out on an exceptional basis only.
Photography costs for the Department from 2008-2015 are set out below. The costs are broken down by date, purpose of event, photographer, and whether a press conference or photocall was involved.
