    For this you need to be online and playing other people hooked up to a camera. You can check this once freeburning by looking for orange camera symbols at the 'show players' screen or by talking while online (I recommend the latter).
    There are four different categories in the lineup:

    1) Freeburn mugshots - Gained from takedowns while freeburning.
    2) Event mugshots - Gained from takedowns in a race.
    3) Rulebreaker smugshot - Gained by someone beating your freeburning road rule.
    4) Photo Finishes - Gained from finishing races, win or lose (this is the only one that does not require other people to have cameras).

    There is a maximum of 20 you can collect in each category.
    Most people will get 40 from 1 & 4 easily enough, then struggle for the last 10. Fortunately, multiple snapshots can be received from the same driver. If you find someone with a camera who talks and is willing to help you out, you should get this fairly quickly.
    Otherwise you'll be reduced to finding the game with the most camera owners in it, then setting really slow road rules on the short/most used roads in the hope one of them beats it...which is frustrating trust me. Or taking down a specific player repeatedly in every race...which won't make you very popular.

    Edit: To look at how many you already have, hit start, then RB three times and you will see 'The Lineup' as the third option down.

    Short answer: No.

    The Hotshots achievement requires your friend to have an Xbox 360 console as well as an Xbox Live Vision Camera so you can receive snapshots in The Lineup when you take down other players.

    However, I found out (with help from a friend) that both players must be on Xbox 360 for you to receive credit towards the Hotshots achievement. In addition to that, the "Xbox Live Vision" setting must be set to "On" as well (found under Options in-game).

    NOTE: You will also need to make sure that the "Use video for communications (Xbox 360: Video Communication)" setting in Xbox privacy and online safety (Microsoft/Xbox account login required) is set to "Everyone" to send and receive video from the Xbox Live Vision Camera in an Xbox 360 game. This setting can also be changed on an Xbox 360 console while signed-in to Xbox Live from the Settings tab, then go to Privacy tile.

    These are the one that will require you to have an Xbox 360 console and an Xbox Live Vision Camera to send snapshots to other players when you are taken out:
    Burnout ParadiseHappy SnapperThe Happy Snapper achievement in Burnout Paradise worth 34 pointsSend 5 Camera Shots

    Burnout ParadiseNotoriousThe Notorious achievement in Burnout Paradise worth 80 pointsSend 50 Camera Shots

    Also, Xbox 360 hardware (e.g. an Xbox Live Vision Camera) isn't compatible with the Xbox One as the Xbox 360 emulator will not be able to access it. This is a limitation of the Xbox One console and the Xbox 360 emulator. The exception is given for Rock Band 4 as you can purchase the Legacy Game Controller Adapter and/or PDP Wired Legacy Adapter, which allow players to use Xbox 360 wired or wireless guitar controllers and drum kits from previous Guitar Hero and/or Rock Band titles in Rock Band 4 on Xbox One.

    You can obtain this achievement with just one other person who has a vision camera, you yourself do not need one. ( presuming the other player does not need this achievement. )

    As stated in the other guide you can only get 20 snapshots from each of the 4 categories.
    1) Freeburn - Take down someone in freeburn
    2) Event - Take down someone in a race
    3) Rulebreaker - Someone needs to best your freeburn road rule
    4) Photo Finish - Win races.

    Now you can combine this with:
    Burnout ParadiseOnline ChampionThe Online Champion achievement in Burnout Paradise worth 85 pointsWin 10 online Races

    First start a freeburn session online and invite your boosting partner. Make it invite only to stop randoms joining. Proceed to take them down 20 times here. Then make the shortest race possible and save it. Start this up and take down your buddy another 20 times. ( you can do it all in one race or do say 2 a race to split it up ). Finally win that race 10 times and you'll unlock both the 50 snapshot and win 10 race achievement.

    The easiest way to take them down is to boost into their side and T-Bone takedown them.
