canadian passport photos

Hi, I need to renew my Canadian passport. Can anyone recommend a photographer in Lausanne or Geneva? The Canadian passport photo has different size specifications, so I need a photographer who specifically knows how to take Canadian passport photos.

Re: canadian passport photos

Another Canadian here :-)

Just tell the photographer desided size - he will crop the photo according to the specification once it's done. He doesn't even have to know it's for Canadian passport.

The bigger problem is to find someone to certify "the true likeness" of that photo. This is old Canadian rule, I am sure you know that :-) It should be a postman, teacher, bank clerk, police officer from the Gemeinde you live in.

Let us know what happened :-)

Re: canadian passport photos

If you print off the details from the immigration canada page and take it with you, any photographer can help you, make sure you print the French version for them though. He will need to sign and authorze he is a professional shop on the back.
Ours were a breeze, but the photographer was no where near you.
