Post ITA Digital Photo in Dallas (Plano area)


#1

Hi All,

I got my ITA and I am looking for a photographer to take my digital photograph to submit for my PR application.

I would really appreciate if you have any recommendations in and around the Plano, Texas area for taking said photo?

Try- V4 Visas Passport Photo and Notary Services @ 820 West Spring Creek Parkway Suite 400-G, Plano, TX 75023. phone: (214) 396-8120.

I found this online . I have not called then or been there yet but when i read certain reviews I think they can do a canada PR photo.

Hi @ram,

Thanks for your recommendation. I just spoke to them over phone and they said they do both 35x45mm and 50x70mm variations. Infact the owner said they do 15-20 such photos every week. I will go to their place today and get it done.

Thanks a lot for your response.


Regards,
Prasan

Cool:+1: You’re welcome.

Quick followup question @ram

I only need to ask for one digital jpeg of the photo and upload the same as long as it meets the size and dpi requirements, correct?


#6

One should be good for now. once the application is approved you may need two more photographs with the same spepcifications ( but not more than 6 months old).

I took photographs at walgreens and it worked fine for PR. They have a kiosk where you can choose the country and I chose Canada and just double check that dimensions match the requirements.

V4 at W SpringCreek Parkway is unable to provide the exact pics with the required dimensions. I wasted my money there. Later did it myself at home and it worked just fine. I’ve a licensed software to do that. If you want, I can do it for you. Else, you can also try at Walgreens as mentioned above. I would not recommend going and spending at that V4 studio next to India Bazaar on W SpringCreek Parkway.

Thank you all for your insight into this topic. Here’s what ultimately happened. I decided not to proceed with V4 because honestly I didn’t like the owners mannerisms and the way he was talking over me on the phone. I took the next advice and went to a Walgreens in Addison on Belt Line Rd and the photo they took was completely useless, the lighting was bad they cut the photo in a weird way and they didn’t provide me with any soft copy. Dejected I decided to give it a shot with Costco, they really saved the day for me. I went to the one near Plano Pkwy and they knew exactly what I wanted. They did a 35x45 with proper head positioning and lighting and provided me with 4 physical copies alongwith a flash drive with a digital copy for $10. I would highly recommend doing it with Costco.

Hope my experience helps others in the Dallas area. Once again, thank you all for your invaluable advice on this.
