Hope this is not off topic, I am new to python. I use linux and use the 
subprocess module, feel free to point out my noviceness;
#!/usr/bin/python

import subprocess

def take_shot_func():
     streamer = "/usr/bin/streamer"
     s_arg1 = "-c"
     s_device = "/dev/video0"
     s_arg2 = "-b"
     s_rate = "16"
     s_arg3 = "-o"
     save_to = "/tmp/camshot.jpeg"

     print "Taking picture with webcam and saved to /tmp/camshot.jpeg"

     subprocess.call([streamer, s_arg1, s_device, s_arg2,
         s_rate, s_arg3, save_to])

def main():
     take_shot_func()

if __name__ == "__main__":
     main()
