Almost. One server in the rotation, x-hkp://keyserver.kjsl.com:11371,
will strip the photos. Use a specific SKS server or
random.sks.keyserver.penguin.de if you care about photos on keys.

Specifically, keyserver.kjsl.com strips photo IDs before sending keys
to other keyservers, most of which silently drop all sync. emails with
photos in them and would not otherwise have (the photoless versions of)
such keys. Otherwise, you['d] have to add "--export-options
no-include-attributes" and make a special effort to send such a key to
pgp.mit.edu, for example, which would then propagate the (naturally,
photoless version of the) key.
