Configurator 2 auto opening Photos

I know this isn't strictly Casper related, but I know there are probably a lot of us using Configurator alongside the Casper Suite to manage iOS devices.
Just started using Configurator 2 and was disappointed that Photos STILL auto opens every time it detects an iPad when it's plugged in to my Configurator station.
I gave some feedback to this effect on the Configurator feedback page on the Apple website
...and they actually replied back within 24 hours!
"With respect to Photos launching on device connections, we have indeed been working with the Photos team to change this default behaviour. Stay tuned. In the meantime, it is possible to disable this with a defaults write:
defaults -currentHost write com.apple.ImageCapture disableHotPlug -bool YES
It was a refreshing change to not only get a real person responding, but for them to actually pass on some useful advice.
So if you have any feedback on Configurator 2, I urge you to let them know via the above link, as it would appear they are finally actively listening!!
