The German chapter has done this sort of thing. They described it along the lines of 'herding cats while taking individual in-focus pictures of them at the same time'. and they have sixteen regional parliaments.
This does have massive potential though.
How about this as a scenario...
We get community members to email their own MP and ask to come to their surgery to take a picture for us. While there drop off an information pack and explain what we do...
650 to do but would have a great and very personal impact.

We still don't have photos of every MP. Not that I've personally
lifted a finger in this direction, but is anyone doing anything toward
this? e.g. the hard slog of approaching each, or of getting the
