Passport Photos


Get your passport photos in Edmonton from a professional portrait studio!  Ready in 10 minutes or less.

Open for Passport Photos

We are open for passport, visa, and other immigration photos after the COVID-19 shutdown.  Walk-in Passport Photos are available; hand sanitizing and social distancing will be required.

Choose a better portrait for your passport.

Professional photography makes a difference! With our professional studio lighting your passport photo will look more flattering, and we have a few tricks to make sure you look friendly in your photo - even if you aren't allowed to smile.


Your passport photos will be accepted the first time.  We have a very high success rate, and if for any reason they are not accepted, bring them back to us with the rejection slip - we will redo them for free.

Passport Photo Sizes:

We capture photos every day for Canadian passports and visas, citizenship applications and study permits.  Standard sizes include:

  • Canadian Passport
  • Canadian Visa
  • Canadian Study Permit
  • Canadian Citizenship
  • United States visa / passport
  • European visas and passports
  • Schengen visa

  • Many more!


Some applications require uncommon features. We can provide photo specifications that are not available at most passport shops.  Some examples:

  • Blue backdrop (not white)
  • Matte passport photos (non-glossy photo paper)

  • Smiling photos (if permitted)
  • Infant and baby passport photos (appointment required)

Let us know if you have any special requests.
