New Year, Time to Update Your Passport?

Take a look at your passport. When does it expire? Is this the year you need to renew it? If so, the first step would be to have a new photo taken. And if your passport is from a foreign country, you're going to be hard pressed to find someone who can provide you with photos that conform to your home government's standards (typically measured in millimeters, not inches).

The good news, is that if you're in the central Florida area, you can call Newsome's Studio of Photography at 813-968-2810 and be in and out in less than ten minutes with sharp, professionally-lit images that measure perfectly to your government's passport photo specs.

Located in North Tampa's Main Street Plaza, at 10012 N. Dale Mabry Hwy, Suite 219 Newsome's Studio can accommodate passport photo requests from ANY foreign country (over 50 different countries in just the last five years).

Canadian Permanent Residency Photographer, Tampa

So, it's time to apply for your Canadian Permanent Residency status, eh? Well, the photo you're going to need better be perfect, because the Canadian government can be rather picky on such things.

First off, don't bother going to the drug store for your photo, they can only do US passport size (2x2 inch). What you're going to need is 35mm x 45mm, and the head size must fall within 25-30mm as well. You know how small a millimeter is? Of course you do, you're from Canada! Pretty tight specs, eh?

Get it right the first time. Go to Newsome's Studio of Photography, located at 10012 N. Dale Mabry Hwy, Suite 219, Tampa (in Carrollwood) and you'll be in and out with your clearly lit, perfectly exposed, very sharp images (set of two), that are cut and sized to the exact specifications of the Canadian government. Call 813-968-2810 today.

New Zealand Passport Photos, Tampa

Seems New Zealand is among the first countries to stop requiring paper passport photos and accept digital submissions only. At least that's what I deduced from the New Zealand government's passport photo submission page on their government web site.

Dale Mabry Hwy, Suite 219 in Carrollwood (North Tampa) has been providing high quality passport photos for any country on the planet (over 50 different countries in just the last three years).

US Passport Photographer, Tampa

Passport photos for US Passports in Tampa are often offered and advertised by non-photography businesses (drug stores, etc).  They are store employees, not professional photographers, and thus, do not utilize professional cameras or lighting equipment.

At Newsome's Studio of Photography, we use only professional grade equipment, lighting, and printing methods, that result in a sharp, well-lit, image, perfectly sized and printed on high quality paper - and ready just a few minutes (you'll leave with your prints).

Passport Photos, Tampa

Your passport photo doesn't HAVE to make you look like a criminal! If you're going to have to live with an image for ten years, you might as well stack the odds in your favor that it's an image you actually like.

US citizens needing a US Passport Photo (2x2 inch) have plenty of options as to where to get these taken, but those options get very limited when selecting where to go for a GREAT Passport Photo. Proper lighting, a high quality camera, and more than one shot taken, can greatly improve your chances for success. You may not be able to get that from a drug store, but you WILL get that from Tampa's Passport Photographer, Newsome's Studio of Photography.

Located in Cypress Point Office Park at 10012 N. Dale Mabry Hwy in Carrollwood, Newsome's Studio has been providing top quality US Passport Photos for nearly 30 years.

Invest in that image wisely. You'll be looking at it for TEN YEARS!
