Passport Photos


So you need passport photos and end up in an uncomfortable little photo booth in the corner of a supermarket (worse still, you could be trying to hold your squirming 2 year old still on the wobbly stool). When your photos finally drop from the machine you’re invariably disappointed. It appears you haven’t slept for a month, just escaped from prison, or maybe both?

There is a better way.

Book a visit to our high-street photo studio with onsite parking and comfortable reception. In our professional portrait studio, your photo will be accurately printed & cut to the correct size.

If you’re applying online you can have a British passport photo code, simply enter this on the HMPO website

Using professional studio lighting we capture you looking your best. Whilst strict passport regulations prohibit us from posing you in a truly portrait style, we promise to create a photo that you won’t be ashamed of at passport control.

Biometric passport regulations are very strict. Many passport photos are instantly rejected, especially those from photobooths. We always use a UK Passport approved template to check our photos. We’re confident our photos will pass first time. In the unlikely event you encounter any problems we guarantee a free re-shoot.
