Going on vacation? Need a passport? At Quality Cameras & Computers (Fotosource), you can get passport photos, citizenship and visa photos and other ID photos while you wait. Our staff ensure that all photos meet government regulations (or the sizing requirements on the documents you bring) and passport specifications.

Passport photos must be taken at a professional photo studio, stamped and dated. They must be taken within the last 12 months and certified by a guarantor.


These are some of the guidelines used when taking a passport photo:


  • Applicant must show a neutral facial expression (no smiling, mouth closed) and look straight at the camera.
  • A neutral background must be used.
  • Eyes must be open and clearly visible. Glasses are acceptable as long as you can see the eyes.
  • Photos must be clear, sharp and in focus.
  • Shadows are unacceptable.
  • There must be no reflection or glare on the face or glasses.
  • Photos must be originals and not taken from an existing photo.
  • Photo must include head and shoulders.


See Passport Canada for complete information.


It can take up to six weeks to process your passport application, so plan ahead and get your passport photos early. Let our staff help you by visiting Quality Cameras & Computers (Fotosource) today!
