Dead Rising Scoop

Photo Challenge is a scoop in Dead Rising. If Frank completed Cut From The Same Cloth, this scoop should have automatically been added to Frank's scoop cue. Kent Swanson wants an erotic photo which is over Prestige points icon 750 Prestige Points (exactly 750 will not suffice).[1] This scoop is similar to cases in that Frank must complete it between one hour, in this case, from 12 to 1 pm on day 2.

Conversation with Kent[]

Conversation with Kent

Kent: There you are Frankie! Did you get your homework assignment done? Nervous? I get it, we're all nervous when we're beginners. Let me take a look, show me your best shot. Alright Frankie, get your best EROTICA photo ready. Is that the one? Yes, No[2]

Potential photos[]

If Frank already has a photo worth over Prestige points icon 750 he can give the photograph to Kent immediately, but if not, here are possible photo suggestions to meet this scoop requirement:

Black clad female Zombie[]

Take a photo of the black clad female zombie.[3] The photo to the right is an accidental photo from a distance. Close up, it would be worth much more prestige points.

picture which meets the 750 prestige point requirement.

During Case 2-3: Medicine Run Jessie is sitting down on the bed next to Brad. Have Frank back up from her. Zoom in and focus on her crotch, but make sure her breasts are still in the shot. Frank should get 700-1,000 points for this erotic photo.[4]

Scoop completion[]

When Frank has the erotic photo, return to Colombian Roastmasters in Paradise Plaza to find Kent Swanson again, and present him with the photo.

Frank must give the photograph to Kent in Paradise Plaza before 1 pm on day 2. When Frank shows Kent the photo, he demands another contest. He tells Frank to meet him in the Paradise Plaza tomorrow (September 21) at noon for another challenge, Photographer's Pride.[4]


  • Make sure that Frank doesn't talk to Kent before he has the erotic photo, or Kent will laugh at Frank, walk away, and the scoop will be lost.[4]
  • If you have trouble getting the EROTICA picture, it is recommended to use both the Camera 1 and Wartime Photography books, as each will give you a 50% PP increase for every picture taken.
  • Renember that everytime you start a new game, Frank's gallery is empty. Do not rely on pictures taken in previous playthroughs since they get deleted completely.
