DRESS FOR SUCCESS
Because a white background is required, it is strongly recommended that you do NOT wear a white blouse, shirt, or jacket. All other colors are acceptable. Uniforms and camouflage clothing are not allowed. Try to dress, comb your hair, etc. as you will when you are traveling. The closer you look to your photo, the less problems you will have.
We suggest you dress somewhat formally and conservatively, because the people who examine your passport tend to be very conservative. There are countries where dress that is too casual or revealing can get you into trouble, so it doesn't hurt if your passport photo - which you'll be using for the next 10 years - is somewhat stuffy.
Baby photos require special care. We are experienced at taking passport pictures of children and babies.
TIPS FOR APPLYING FOR A PASSPORT
Passports are only issued by the U.S. State Department. Processing takes 10-12 weeks. We try to keep extra passport applications on hand. The full details are listed on the back of the passport application. Pick one up while having your photo taken.
WHERE TO APPLY
If this is your first passport, you will need to submit the application in person to a trained government official who verifies your ID.

DO YOU NEED A VISA?
For travel in some countries you will need a separate visa in addition to your U.S. passport. (An entry visa is no relation to the Visa credit card.) The country you are visiting issues the visa. You usually have to order a visa from the country's embassy. In many countries you will not need a visa for short visits, but you may need a photo ID or proof of U.S. citizenship. You can find current information on the entry requirements for the country you are visiting and on how to get a visa at
http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/visa_1750.html or talk with your travel agent.
The number of photos needed for a visa varies by country. We take visa photographs too.
OTHER HELPFUL TRAVEL TIPS
The State Department recommends making two copies of your passport identification page. Leave one copy at home with friends or relatives. Carry the other copy and a spare set of photos with you in a place separate from your passport. This will facilitate replacement at the U.S. embassy in the unfortunate event that your passport is lost or stolen. For the same reason, it's also a good idea to make a photocopy of the various cards in your wallet, just in case.
