Eagle Scout Photo
Because Pictures Last Longer
Northern Star Council offers two professional photography studios for Eagle Scouts to have portraits taken. Whether a family chooses to use one of the council services or another photographer, we'll celebrate a young man's elevation to Eagle by displaying an 8 x 10 photo in the office lobby.

The Imagery is owned by Eagle Scout Rod Oman. Rod is an award-winning Twin Cities portrait photographer, with his Master of Photog, and Craftsman Degrees from the PPA, as well as being a long time Eagle Scout and supporter of scouts. The Imagery will provide you with the Eagle badge, pin, kerchief and slide and photographs on a BSA blue background with the American flag. In addition to Eagle portraits, the Imagery will offer you a free family session, and half price off Senior Photo session fees, that you can use at a separate appointment, so be sure to check out their two indoor camera areas and a full portrait park with waterfalls and sets.
For the scouts exclusively, the Imagery offers a standard archival paper, fully retouched, for only $28 per 8x10 unit. (i.e. $28 per 8x10, or $28 per 2 5x7, or $28 per 3 4x6). You may also order photo invitations to Court of Honor, and special custom collages. 8x10s are regularly $88-$110 in premium finish, so this is a reduction only offered to the BSA. Sessions are by appointment, ordering is immediately following, and orders can be shipped for additional shipping and handling or picked up at the studio.

on it. You can also wear your merit badge sash. You will need to
provide your own neckerchief and slide if you choose to wear these

have my Eagle badge and medal on my uniform?

display. The contact person for Eagle photos in the St. Paul office is
