For Prompto, every picture that he takes boosts his Photography stats. The higher level he gets, the more photos that are needed in order to gain a level. Take advantage of every photo op opportunity when Prompto bugs you in the Regalia to stop your important mission to snap a shot. Those count. Also take advantage of Vys(sp?) who asks you to take a bunch of photos for Meteor Magazine. Those also count. After that, it's basically the luck of the draw. The longer you go in between camping/lodging the more pictures he will take, generally ten to thirteen a day if you're not lodging every ten minutes. It's a bit of a grind, but of the four max level skills I would say this is the easiest to accomplish.

Max Level is ten. I got it post game, as going into the final boss battle I was about halfway through level nine. It might take you longer or less time depending on your play style. If you're lucky, you might even get the Photobomb achievement while you're grinding for this. If you don't know what that is, I direct you to the wonderful guide written down below. Potentially tackling two birds with one stone is always helpful.

Happy hunting!

I believe i have found a way to grind this out instead of just hoping each day that Prompto takes a bunch of pictures. I got tired of running around each day doing random stuff hoping i could get a lot of pictures. In other words, i got tired of this luck based way of getting this achievement. Here is an easy grind method to get this if you want to get the achievement faster.

Got to the Wiz Chocobo place, not too far from Hammerhead.
Find the pole where it asks to take a photo, and get the photo.
Right by this photo op, are some chocobos. Pet one.
Thats two pictures in like 20 seconds.
10-15 secs are wasted on resting.
Go to the caravan and spend a measly 30 gil to rest.
So every 30 secs or so you can get a few pictures each time

You should get 2, sometimes 3 or 4 pics if Prompto takes a few random pics, for 30 seconds of work. I grinded the last half of level 9 in like 20 min doing this. This is a guranteed, faster method. You dont have to play for 30 min hoping you get 10-15 pics, instead you can easily match that and beyond with this method.
