Passport photo Now always gets it right. Bruce provides the most fantastic service. He has guided me through many passport and visa photos now. He is particularly good at producing photos for overseas passports, which can be almost impossible to organize outside of your home country. I never go anywhere else for my passport and visa photos now. Thanks for everything Bruce!

Thank you SO MUCH for your service! Trying to get Australian passport photos in America seemed an insurmountable problem for us, especially living in small town USA. You made the entire process so incredibly easy, and it was less than the cost of passport photos in the Post Office! I can't even tell you how easy this was, seriously, people, if you need Aussie photos, DO THIS. Don't even hesitate, you will have no stress, just send them a camera photo and a few days later your perfect photos arrive in the mail. I won't even be getting US photos anywhere else now! These guys are awesome. Do it! (Not a paid testimonial, first time user).
This is the 2nd or 3rd time we have used this service. Passport photos arrived in 3 days! Excellent service, customer service is great. Highly recommend this fast and easy service.

The service was fantastic! There was an immediate response, then an email to assure me that it seemed very usable, and returned very quickly. Two weeks from the time I sent the pictures, my Australian Passport is in my hand. Of course I will recommend this service.

Amazingly quick and professional service. I will use this service again for personal use as well as for my businesses. Highly recommended. I literally received my pictures the next day and they were submitted at around 8pm the night before, I don't even know how they were that fast. This company is awesome to deal with!
I was very pleased with both the speed and quality of my photos. I had a shadow that appeared in the original photo that was expertly removed. Although I can't honestly say the photo was responsible, I got my passport renewal in 2 weeks!

I needed the Japanese passport photo and US passport photo(for green card)(they both are totally different size, rules etc) and at first, i was going to try using those free Apps which says you can get any country's passport photo etc..but it didn't look right at all and the reviews were terrible..So I checked them around online, in person, and found this "passport photo now" site. and price wise, it was already good deal...So i gave it a try and I'm so happy that I chose this way instead of stupid Apps(It would be rejected I can tell) or Target store's digital photo services etc...Bruce was very helpful & professional& job is very fast and I already got them in mail. the quality, price, convenience, All A+++!! 3 years later, i'll apply for citizenship as well and I will definitely use their service again.
