This is the second time I utilized and it won't be my last! They are incredible quick and efficient! Not to mention, so much cheaper than going to your local "pharmacy" for photos. Definitely give your time and business to the staff at :)

There is a reason I continue to use Passport Photos Now, and it is simple - you won't find better service and quality than what Bruce delivers. I have used his service three times for various passport, visa, and immigration documents between Australia and the US. Having had photos taken at the usual places, and the quality being unacceptable, I was thrilled to find Bruce's service online. It is beyond convenient to be able to take photos at home and submit them to Bruce through his simple but effective portal to work his magic. The turnaround timeframe has always been beyond expedient. My favorite part is that you can pay a small fee to have digital versions of the photos emailed to you which has come in quite handy. I will not go anywhere else and will continue to be a raving fan of Passport Photos Now. They make the process so smooth that you will be dying to need new photos done!

Very prompt service. I thought I could upload my photo to the passport renewal page only to find that once I got to that page, the ability to do so had been discontinued. Luckily my husband had used Passport Photo Now and Bruce provided my printed photo in a couple of days. Highly recommended.

I have used this photo printing service multiple times and have always been very satisfied. The owner, Bruce, is friendly and quick to respond to any questions. The website provides clear instructions on how to order prints and helpful information on photo formats. The quality of the printed photos has been excellent each time I've ordered. My photos have always arrived by the expected delivery date. I highly recommend this service for printing photos based on my consistently positive experiences.

Outstanding and prompt service as always. For me the most important aspect is to be 100% sure that the passport photos will meet requirements and that we will not endure any application rejections or delays.

This is actually my second time using passport photo now and I'm still very impressed with the quality and shipping. I sent my passport photos looking a little rough, but the team cleaned them so well. The quality looks very professional. The package was sent from California, using regular shipping it took about 5 days to get to me. I received a very well packaged envelope. The pictures themselves were inside a small ziplock bag that was protected by a greeting card. I definitely recommend getting your pics printed from here, they have never disappointed me.

For Australian passport renewal in the US, you know how hard it is to get the photos right! This is THE place to get your Australian Passport photos! One iPhone shot, that's it! Bruce was very helpful and reassuring. Even the Australian Consulate recommends this place, and the application materials have a place asking where you got your photos taken. We went through a nightmare 10 years ago with the photos during the passport renewal interview and had to pay for much more to get our photos retaken on the street (also a recommended outlet) for the head shots looking like criminals. We also brought back a photo template given by the consulate for one of our compatriots not knowing that he already had gone through the same nightmare. Guess what came out of his mouth when he saw the photo template, "it sends the chill down my spine!" With, you save all the hassles and pretty much guarantee the acceptance. It's a no brainer! I will get my new passport in a couple days. Way to go Bruce! Thank you very much!

Absolutely wonderful service! I had terrible trouble trying to get the photos captured correctly and I couldn't seem to get the right lighting or appropriate spot however Bruce worked around the clock to make sure that we met the requirements for taking the photo and he had them back to Utah so quickly that my application isn't even ready to go yet. He worked over New Year's and he always emailed me right back to let me know the status. The pictures are great! We needed a renewal on our Australian, Canadian and American passports and he did a great job! Excellent communication! Will definitely use again!

 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.

 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.
