 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. 

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.

I was so happy when I found your business online and read the wonderful reviews from customers. I needed passport pictures to renew my Jamaican passport and you did such an excellent job with providing the right size and everything that was required. I just received an email that DHL will be delivering the passport today. Thank you much

I traveled the length and breath of South Carolina, trying to find someone who would take my son's pictures, using Jamaica's specifications but my search was futile. I looked online and saw passportphotonow and decided to take a chance. The service was quick and easy, which made me a little skeptical. When the pictures came back I was somewhat concerned about the size because I have never seen passport pictures that small. However, I submitted the pictures and the passport was done without any question. I recommend passportphotonow to anyone who needs pictures to fit Jamaica's specifications.

I have being using for over 5 years and have not been disappointed. I can use my phone to take the picture, send it via email, and receive them back within the same week (or the next day if require that service). The pictures are always as precise as the Jamaican Consulate requires (and we know how they love to reject pictures). I have a family of 4 whose passports are renewed at different times. Thankfully, we do not have to travel to get them done (which is the case for many, because of the picture requirement). This company is precise, quick, and reliable. I 100% recommend based on my many years of great experience with them.

Hello to all. I would like to say, without hesitation, that this service is amazing! I was in need of getting a passport photo for my Jamaican passport..Jamaican passport photo requirements are very restrictive. Photos have to be taken just right. I went to a local passport photo shop that had experience with producing Jamaican passport photos to get my photo taken. This took place in March of 2020. I sent in my passport application and it got caught in a 3-month delay due to the impact of COVID-19. Finally, in June, I got a response from my Consulate only to find out that my application had been rejected due to a non-compliant photo. Ready to take my photo again, I discovered that my local photo shop had closed its doors indefinitely due to the impact of COVID-19! I was stuck! Desperate, I began searching for solutions online. I found out about through a Google search, and my prayers had been answered. The process was easy. Bruce was very pleasant to work with and responded to my submission quickly. And when I sent in the photos that Bruce produced, they were accepted on the first try! Now I have my passport! Thank you for getting me out of jam, during these unprecedented times! Bruce, you're the best! Anytime I need another photo taken for identification purposes, I will be using Moreover, if I know anyone that will be needing a photo taken, I will definitely recommend this service. Thanks again!
