Several studies have established photon radiation in top pair production at the LHC as potential probe of anomalous coupling effects. With the cross section for top pair production and single-top production being of comparable magnitude at the LHC, it appears worthwhile to extend the ttbar-gamma production analysis to photon radiation in single top quark production. 
  In this talk, I will show that single-top-plus-photon production at the LHC can probe the electromagnetic coupling structure of the top quark, and I will present the sensitivity of kinematical distributions on the anomalous dipole moments of the top quark.
