Very impressed by this service! Getting a passport photo for our 5 weeks old son was not an easy task! We took many photos and submitted the best one but Bruce came back and let us know it wouldn't meet the standards. We really appreciated this. We submitted another one and he came back very quickly and confirmed it would meet the standards, he sent it off to production and it arrived 2 days later. Great service. Will be using you guys again for sure!

Thank you so very much for your service!! I received my friend’s green card yesterday!!! It was a long drawn out process for my 98 yr old friend who let her green card expire. I am so very grateful that you provide a service like this for folks who are unable to go and have their photo taken for a government agency ID. Dept of Homeland Security accepted the photos you sent me, and the application was approved and new card issued. I am so very grateful for your assistance.

This is the second time I have utilized Bruce's company, and also the second time that I have been extremely pleased with his level of customer service, as well as the final product. Bruce is extremely quick to get back to you to request updated photos if he needs them, and the total turnaround time has always been ultra quick. I would recommend this web service at any time, it is great!

My mom is 90 years young and has difficulty getting around. Her passport was up for renewal and was not well enough to go out and get pictures for her passport renewal. I didn't want to force the issue with her, because I knew it would create stress for her. I wondered if an online service existed that could help me with her passport photos. I googled and found Passport Photo Now; The name was fitting because I needed a passport photo now! I told her about the online service and she was very pleased. I took a few photos of her with my cell phone, uploaded them to the site, and within a week or so two passport photos were delivered to my home. I was leary and wasn't sure they would be accepted with the renewal application, so I waited to hear back re the renewal process. About a month later my mom's new passport came in the was so easy! I would highly recommend this service for individuals who have trouble getting around, are super busy, or those who care for their elderly parents (as do I) and getting around for them is a challenge. Great service! Thanks so much!

Fast service and shipping. I had tried to get the correct size photo for a U.K. passport without any success. Passportphotonow took care of the size without a problem and I just received the U.K. passport. I would highly recommend Passportphotonow. Thank you.

Used this website for 5 years now and very happy with the service. They e-mail you if the picture is not taken correctly (too dark etc) and tell how to correct it.

 Format(Size)Two (2) identical photographs must be submitted,  They should be 2" x 2" 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 60% - 70% of the face or 1" x 1 3/8" from 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

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.
