Photos are okay for the provisional (but not ideal).  The patent rules say you should use black and white line drawings.   A good patent draftsman should be able to convert photos to proper patent drawings for about $30-$50 per photo.

When I create my Provisional Patent, am I allowed to use Photos in lieu of drawings?  Should I include photos at all in my Provisional Patent or wait until the final Patent?
