Chinese Passport Photos in Tampa

Every country has their own specifications for passport photos. While the US measures theirs in inches (2x2), 99% of the rest of the planet measures them in millimeters. Most European passports are 35x45mm, but a Chinese passport photo is 33x48mm, far different than all the others.

To be certain you are sending them the correct size for a Chinese passport photo, contact Newsome's Studio of Photography in Carrollwood, located at 10012 N. Dale Mabry Hwy (Cypress Point Office Park). All photography is by appointment, and guaranteed to pass muster, regardless of which country it's for.

US Passport Photos, Tampa

You get a phone call. It's your sister in England. She's getting married in London in six weeks, you're the Maid of Honor! Awesome. Where is your passport? When was the last time you used it? How old IS that passport, and how long are they good for? Well, if it's a US passport, it's good for ten years. If you're going to have a renew it, it can take weeks - IF everything passes muster (paperwork and photograph) with the US Passport office.

Don't trust your passport photo to your eleven year old with an iPhone, or even your neighbor who took a college course in photography. Believe me, the number one reason passport applications are rejected is because the passport photo does not conform to the required specifications.

UK (British) Passport Photos

British passport photos are pretty much the same size as most other European countries (outter demension anyway). But one big difference that can cause your passport photo to be rejected is the background color. While most European passports require a white background, British passport photos require a light gray or cream colored background. Newsome's Studio of Photography, located at 10012 N. Dale Mabry Hwy in Carrollwood (Cypress Point Office Park) has nearly three decades of experience in providing high quality foreign passport photos and handles at least two to three UK passport photos per week.

European Passport Photos

Random Trivia: The only countries left on the planet - besides the United States of America - that have NOT converted to the metric system are Liberia and Burma.

For all foreign passports photos in all other countries, the size is measured in millimeters. European passport photos are almost (I said "almost") all uniformly the same size - 35x45mm.

Most all drug stores that still offer passport photos are only set up to create passports that conform to US standards (2x2 inches). Ask them for a 35x45 millimeter image and they're likely to send you back to square one (Google). Fortunately, the Walgreens and the AAA office here in Carrollwood have a backup plan - Newsome's Studio of Photography, located at 10012 N. Dale Mabry Hwy in Tampa (Cypress Point Office Park).

Newsome's Studio provides residents from all over the Tampa area with high quality passports, citizenship, immigration, DV Lottery, and visa photos for US as well as any foreign country on the planet, in less than ten minutes!
