Depending on where you travel, you’ll need passport pictures to accompany certain visa applications. But you’ll pay a premium for these pictures if you get them at the airport or otherwise go with a “traditional” passport picture photographer.

Instead, take a digital shot of yourself (there are certain standard guidelines you need to follow, like using a white background, eliminating shadows, and not covering your face in any way), and either crop and print out copies at a self-service machine (available in many pharmacies and photo centres), or use an online service to crop and tweak the shot so you can generate prints however you wish.
