I was really skeptical about using this service - it can't be THIS easy! Sure enough, took a pic of my son against the background of a white cupboard. It was okay, there was some shadowing. Received the passport-ready pics back in lightning speed, absolutely perfect!! I'm so grateful. What a HUGE relief.

I received very fast service on my photo order. The photos I received met Canada Passport requirements and were accepted first time without issues. I will definitely use ''Passport Photo Now'' again and would highly recommend this service! Thank-you Bruce for making it easy!!

I got photos for Canada passport renewal in 2014 and again in 2019. The photos were accepted no problem both times. Bruce was helpful and communicative. I will use again if I need another ID photo to Canadian specs.

After having a previous passport photo rejected by the passport office in Canada, and going to EVERY photo-processing place around (including Costco, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Rite-Aid and contacting local "professional photographers"), I was at wit's end. Somehow Canada has stopped the U.S. box stores from producing passport photos for Canada, and the story just gets worse from there. Finally had AAA do it. DON'T do that. Bad. The fix: Bruce and team here helped advise me on taking a better shot myself, and did the finishing touches to meet the over-anal specs for Canada passports.. . and passport app went thru with with the new photos. Thanks!!!

Highly recommend ! 5 stars. Not only is it fast service but it's the upmost professional work, with excellent communication when there's issues so your picture perfect. I've used them twice now, both times fabulous job for a renewal of a Canada passport which can be a difficult process living in the USA due to the different requirements.

What an easy process! I needed a passport photo for my wife's Canadian passport. They are known to be very particular on the photos submitted which have different requirements from US passports. Most passport photo providers can only take US photos. So, I set up a white photo backdrop and took pictures of my wife with my Canon 50D digital SLR camera and sent the selected digital image to That was yesterday. Today I received the photos in the mail (I am local in Orange County, CA). They look great and I'm sure they will be accepted by the Canadian authorities. This is a great service, fast and reasonably priced.

Service is the very best and makes it easy to get your Canadian passport photos here in the United States, not always easily done. Passport photo now makes it simple. I completely recommend it

I have been waiting for my results to see if my pictures were good enough to be accepted for my renewed passport. My picture was good and I received my passport. Definitely would say I'm happy with this order and recommend it to all needing a legit passport photo.

Canadian passport photo specifications  & requirements

Canadian passport photos can be made from a picture you take with your camera by using our online service or with our mobile passport photo service. We will print them too the exact specification that your government will accept.

only $9.99



Two (2) identical photographs must be submitted,  They should be 50mm x 70mm (2" x 2¾") in Width and Height.  They should show a close up of your face and the top of your shoulders so that your face takes up between 45% - 51% of the face or 31mm to 36mmfrom the chin to the crown of the head. The photo must clearly show the person's facial features in a straight forward position from the tip of the chin to the crown of the head as well as the left and right sides of the face.  In the case of voluminous hair, it must be ensured that the head (including the hairstyle) is fully depicted without reducing the size of the face, if possible.  The face must be centered in the photo and no more than six months old, to ensure an up to date likeness. 
 BackgroundThe background should be white.  The background should not have any pattern. The photo should show only the person to be photographed (no other persons or objects in the photo). No shadows must be shown on the background.



You need to take the photo with a neutral expression with your mouth closed, not laughing, smiling, frowning and not showing your teeth. With both eyes open, contrived expressions such as raised eyebrows or squinting are not acceptable.
 Head Position The head of the person photographed should be neither at an angle nor turned (portrait style).  Your head must be square to the camera; your face can not be slightly rotated and or tilted. Your face and eyes must be straight towards the camera so we can see an equal amount of each ear and cheek.
 Eyes & Line of  sightThe person in the photo must look directly into the camera. The eyes must be open and dearly visible and may not be covered by hair or spectacle frames.  The camera lens must be at the eye level of the person being photographed , not from above or below
The face must be evenly illuminated by the flash on the camera. Reflections or shadows on the face as well as red eyes must be avoided.  
 Photo Quality
The photo should be printed on high-quality paper with a print resolution of at least 600 dpi (especially when taken with a digital camera). The photo must be neutral in color and skin tones should appear natural. The photo should have no creases or impurities . Photograph cannot be manipulated, for example, by removing spots or softening lines.  Photos must be in color.
 Wearing  GlassesPlease take off your glasses; it will guarantee your photo passing. If you must wear your glasses there cannot be any glare anywhere on the glass and the frame cannot cover any part of your eyes. The eyes must be clearly recognizable (reflections from glasses, tinted glasses or sunglasses are not permitted). 
 Head wearGenerally speaking, head wear is not permitted. Exceptions are possible, especially for religious reasons. In such cases, the face must be visible from the lower tip of the chin to the forehead. No shadows should be visible on the face.

The face must be sharply focused in all areas, rich in contrast and clear. 

 Back of PhotoThe photographer (that us) must put the name and address of the photographer or studio and the date the photo was taken must be provided directly on the back of one photo (see illustration to the left). The photographer may use a stamp or hand write this information. Stick-on labels are unacceptable.
Your guarantor must clearly write on the back of one (1) photo: "I certify this to be a true likeness of (applicant's name)" and sign his or her name (unless you are applying to renew a passport, as no guarantor is necessary for renewals).

Infants or very small children who are unable to support themselves should be photographed

lying down from above.  Hands, arms, etc. used to support the child should not be visible.
