Similar to the ones like these:

How do heat transfers hold up, any high quality kind?

Heat transfer is definitely the cheapest way.  If you want a higher quality product you should silkscreen.  You can get your photos color separated and do a 15 color set up for a super clean photo print.  

Alternatively you could break up your image into CMYK components to save money one screens/set up charges.   If you do a CMYK, I would still do a 9 color CMYK, with two sets of CMYK break downs, (light and dark Cyan, light and dark magenta, light and dark yellow, black, neutral gray, and white).  The image will have more depth and the CMYK will blend more gradually which will make the image looks better.  I worked at a silkscreening shop for 2 years and specialized in high detail photo prints.

screen printing photos is a huge investment, money and time wise. if you just want to print a few, look for some local direct to garment (DTG) printers, and get some quotes/conversations going. : )

thats looks like direct to garment printing which pretty much is a big printer that prints onto clothing the same way a computer printer prints onto a piece of paper. 

I love the look of the direct to garment printing but everything I've found is usually a bit pricy. The best printer on the market is made by AnaJet
