Question 102: To ask the Taoiseach the total photography costs for his Department since coming to office; the list of occasions for which photographers were booked over the past year; the breakdown of costs associated with each occasion that a photographer was used; if there is a policy around the booking of photographers in his Department; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9670/12]

The total spend by my Department on photography since March 2011 is €30,629.00. Increasingly my Department utilises its own staff to take photographs in house thereby reducing costs. The comparable cost in 2008 for example, was €83,398.00.

However for major events and inward state visits my Department continues to use the services of a professional photographic agency. As requested, attached is a breakdown of costs for each occasion a photographer was engaged.

A framework for the provision of professional photography services is currently being finalised by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and will be open to all Government Departments in the coming days. My Department will enter this framework as soon as it is available.
