As the question says, I am applying for citizenship... I have pictures that have been made 'neat' (they still resemble me 100%) and don't want to go through photography (have a scar on my face that will be there for a few months, don't want that in a 10 year passport) at the embassy.

Can I bring my own pics? I am in London, if that changes anything

If you mean the photographs for the application form, then they have to be recent and of the same quality as those you use for passports. You can't just use any old pictures.

I've submitted an online request without providing any photos. The photos are recent. I want to know if I can bring photographs to get my passport or if they'll take photos of me

What are you applying for? Citizenship applications are not done online.

They are... if you have a parent who is a citizen and resident of the Russian Federation, you go on the embassy's website and follow the steps, it says: download and print the form OR you fill in boxes in a form, which gets converted to a PDF, of which you get to keep a copy, and it gets sent.

Basically, it saved me ink to print the form out, time to get it delivered to the right people, and fuel/postage on delivering it to the embassy myself. The rest of the procedure, I would imagine, is the same as for anyone else

Are you applying for a biometric passport? If so then they sit you in a booth at the embassy and take your picture there and then. As I understand it, the machine used to take the photo also plots and records biometric data of your face from the photo at the same time. As far as I'm aware, they don't let you hand in your own photos.
