PHOTOSPACE Most businesses offering passport and visa photos don’t use good lighting or have a specialist photographer who knows all the photo specifications. The resulting photo can make you look about 20 years older and may be refused by the Department of Internal Affairs or embassy. Owner James Gilberd is a professional photographer specialising in
passport and profile photos since 1998. He doesn’t charge more than most other businesses but does produce better results he believes. Walk-in times are listed on the website, updated weekly, but it’s best to make an appointment. Photos are printed straight away and digital versions are tested first then emailed promptly.
True, but your PASSPORT PHOTO will still look great when taken by a professional photographer
