What needs to be done regulatory wise to fly an aircraft with the doors removed?
Are there differences if you are 91 or 135?
Obviously for the purpose of taking photographs.
Thanks

Yeah, I got that part.
One of the question is: should the POH/AFM specifically authorize flight with doors removed including Limitations etc?
Or if it is not specifically prohibited by the POH can it be done?

You need to ask your POI what they want to see. Provided it dont contradict the AFM, the FAA office will tell you what paperwork(if any) will be required.

All faa offices interprete the regs diffrently so that is why its best to ask the people who check your books.

It's usually no problem part 91. We've done it with a 337 that includes IAW(instructions for continued airworthiness). Check with your PMI
