International Passport or Visa Photography can be very different from country to country – different background colors, facial expressions, print sizing, lighting, face size, black and white or inappropriate shine on the skin or shadows in the image – Ray Johnston Photography Studio can help you with any passport photo requirement.
The United States passport photo will NOT substitute as a passport photo in most countries. Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, German, British, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, British or Irish, just to name a few, have different passport photo with the correct biometric requirements. Many customers come to our studio after their passport photo has been rejected, many times due to a United States Passport submission or a smile when a country requires a neutral facial expression. Countries like Canada require the photography studio to endorse and date the back of one print. Ray Johnston Photography offers a RUSH passport service by appointment. All appointments take an hour and prints or digital images are delivered with a photo approval guarantee to be accepted by the country of application. Save yourself time and frustration. Hire a professional photographer with international passport experience and get it RIGHT the first time.
Notice the samples below. The square United States passport photo is one of the few countries which allow a smile
