Yes, this is quite evident at parks these days.
I see with the advent of CF's Funpix there are selfie stations placed around where you can take your photo in a cute situation or at an iconic location and load it to your card. Disney's photographers shoot you against a specific backdrop and have you pose a certain way or hold an expression so they can add enhancements.

But is it really anything new? Remember the old Kodak Photo Spots? Maybe less advanced than today's offerings, and without social media, but they were designed to do the work for you and help you get the best shot, while showcasing the park in the best light.

Nothing like it for me....when the story arc ends up circling around itself...
