Bruce made getting photos for my Italian passport (which has different photo specs than US passports) super easy. Bruce was quick and responsive and took the time to make sure everything looked right. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

The service was good quality and fast, with excellent customer service! Most importantly, when I sent in a picture that would not have worked for a passport (too blurry, wrong angle, etc...) they were kind enough to let me know, instead of sending me an invalid picture and forcing me to pay for another "good" one. You should definitely use this service : )

Bruce was extremely helpful and this service is great! I live in a city that does not have a place to get passport photos for countries other than the US, so this made it super simple and worked perfectly. I had issues knowing how to send the file online properly so Bruce gave me personal help via email and held my hand through the process until I got it right. And my picture was accepted from the Irish consulate without a problem (and I have heard stories about people's passport applications getting rejected because their picture was not perfect and they have to resubmit which is a long process). Bruce got it right the first time which saved me a lot of time and hassle.

I received my new Irish passport recently. Bruce was great with advice on how to take the photo correctly (iphone and ipad's do not work) and advice on lighting etc.. The feedback on photos I sent was prompt. Once we got it right the photos were ready and shipped quickly. My photos were accepted first time which would not have happened if I had not found this web page. I will be recommending Passportnow to all my friends who apply for passports no matter which country they apply to.

 BackgroundThe background should be light in color preferably 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.
