Dear Simon, I really need your help. I have been searching for hours to understand that "when it came to having my photo taken". I can't understand having+subject+verb. Please, could you explain it? Also, which grammar subject is relevant about it?

It's like "I had my hair cut": that is, I asked someone to cut my hair. See:
