It's highly speculative since there are no models for a massive object going the speed of light or faster, other than alcubierre's warp drive, and that might not let you photograph anything outside the warp bubble. You could only photograph things inside the warp bubble if i understand his theory correctly.

The Lorentz contraction and Optical aberration
This causes object to appear squashed in the direction of motion and deformed in unusual ways. When we look at an object moving at high speeds, the fact that the speed of light is finite becomes important. Light from points on the object that are further away take longer to reach the viewer. We therefore would see the object warped in some way because the light rays we see will have started their journey at different times. The lattice therefore becomes..(see image)...Weird!
