Where can I get a proper photo for my Canada PR and passport in Pittsburgh?

 

Are you looking for a photographer for your Passport photo or PR photo for Canada in Pittsburgh?   Jen Barker Worley Photography has been providing passport photos for Canada for years.   We are experts so you don’t have to worry about a complicated process to get your passport photos.   

Photos for you PR card (permanent resident card) have slightly different requirements from the Canadian Passport photo requirements.  If you are in need of a passport photo we are happy to help.   Click here for pricing and to book your appointment.  

“My passport has been rejected twice already.” 

You do not want this to be your story!  Canadian passports are actually pretty simple… you just can’t usually go to a cheap US passport place, because they can’t be flexible.  Unfortunately many people are receiving rejection after rejection.  This will cost you more time and money. I hope you find us first to save you all this hassle.

Do you take Canadian Permanent Residency photos? 

Yes we do 

Would you also cut the photos to the appropriate dimensions?

 Yes,  in fact you will receive 2 printed passport photos cut to size and the digital copy. 

Will you be able to certify as mentioned in the specification?

No, the “certify” is supposed to be by someone who knows you:  doctor, neighbor, workmate, etc. 

As you might already know, the Canadian requirements are very strict, I was wondering if you had a chance to work with someone for Canadian photos (passport/PR card) specifically?   

Yes,  I do Canadian passports and PR photos all the time  

Permanent resident photos must be: 

  • Taken by a commercial photographer.
  • 50 mm wide X 70 mm high (2 inches wide x 2- 3/4 inches long) and sized so the height of the face measures between 31 mm (1- 1/4 inches) and 36 mm (1- 7/16 inches) from chin to crown of head (natural top of head).
  • Clear, sharp and in focus.
  • Taken with a neutral facial expression (eyes open and clearly visible, mouth closed, no smiling).
  • Taken with uniform lighting and not show shadows, glare or flash reflections.
  • Taken straight on, with face and shoulders centered and squared to the camera (i.e. the photographs must show the full front view of the person’s head and shoulders, showing full face centered in the middle of the photograph).
  • Taken in front of a plain white background with a clear difference between your face and the background. Photos must reflect/represent natural skin tones.
  • Original photos that are not altered in any way or taken from an existing photo.
  • Reflect your current appearance (taken within the last six months)
  • Professionally printed on plain, high quality photographic paper (photos printed at home and photos printed on heavy weight paper are not acceptable)

The back of one photo must include: 

  • The subject’s name and date of birth
  • The name and complete address of the photography studio
  • The date the photograph was taken
  • The photographer may use a stamp or handwrite this information. Stick-on labels are unacceptable.

Extra details 

  • Glasses may be worn in photos as long as the eyes are clearly visible and there is no glare in the glasses.
  • Sunglasses and tinted eye glasses are unacceptable.
  • Photos with the red-eye effect or red eye alterations are unacceptable.
  • Hats and head coverings must not be worn, unless they are worn daily for religious beliefs or medical reasons. However, your full face must be clearly visible and the head covering must not cast any shadows on your face.
  • Your hair can be down.
  • Shadows are not acceptable. Lighting must be uniform to avoid shadows across the face or shoulders, around the ears or in the background

Child passport photo rules

 

  • Child photos must follow the same rules indicated above.
  • Photos must show the child’s head and shoulders only. Parent’s or child’s hands must not appear in the photo.
  • We recognize the difficulty in obtaining a neutral expression of a newborn and will allow for some minor variations in this regard.
  • For newborn babies, the photo may be taken while the child is sitting in a car seat, as long as a white blanket is placed over the seat behind the child’s head. There must be no shadows on the face or shoulders, around the ears or in the background.

Your application will be rejected if your photos do not meet these specifications.

Medical considerations

 

Wheelchairs:  If you are in a wheelchair, we recommend that a plain white blanket placed over the wheelchair behind the applicant’s head so that your facial features and the edges of your face are clearly visible.

Headwear or nasal cannula:  When required for medical reasons, you can wear headwear or a nasal cannula in your permanent resident photo – as long as your eyes remain clearly visible. We recommend that you include a signed explanation with your application. We may request that you submit a letter from your doctor.

Instagram post 18021143242832933 I got to do the Emmy’s! …. ah wait, I mean I got to photograph one. 😆. Did you know that US Steel won an Emmy?  Here’s the story:This Emmy was one of three earned back in 1953, for the U. S. Steel Hour, which brought adaptations of new and classic theater productions, along with big-name stars, to the small screen during its 10-year run.But this Emmy was a bit lost for some years.  Shortly after Erin DiPietro joined @ussteelcorp more than 20 years ago, she found this Emmy statue boxed up and in desperate need of repairs.  This year, it was time to bring it back to life.  If you ever find yourself in need of an Emmy repair, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences offers a replacement statue service.#ussteel #emmys
