"It's only a passport photograph". This is a phrase we hear over & over again. If you lose your passport you will quickly realise just how important a document it is! In most cases you will hold your passport for ten years before you are required to get a new one. This means you have to live with the same passport photograph for ten years.


When we photograph someone for Passport, Visa or for Identity purposes we use the same quality lighting, the same camera and the same studio that we use for our high quality portraits. Your image is also kept on file, so if you require another photo for a different purpose, simply quote your reference number and we can produce extra passport photographs & visa photos for you.


Identity photographs are needed ever increasingly these days. If you change your driving licence you will need a driving licence photograph. If you need a bus pass you will need a bus pass photograph.

Passport photos & visa photographs have to conform to exacting guidelines. It has to be taken on a specific colour background, your head has to be a certain size and the overall picture has to fit to exact dimensions. Passport photos must not be retouched. The only areas we do have control over are lighting and expression, this is why it’s important to use studio quality lighting.


We have actually had a number of customers say to us, that the man at customs when checking their passport commented on the quality of their photograph!


The British passport department rejects many passport photographs that do not conform to the rules. Many of the rejected photos were produced  in photo booths & in situations when a real photographer wasn’t behind the camera to check your expression.
