It should be noted that this is a passport, Visa or ID photo sessions are not a “portrait session”, posing, backgrounds and lighting is strictly controlled by the authorities who issue the specification and we have to comply.
The authorities are interested in the digitisation of your face which is approved by scanning using advanced software, so please beware if other photography studios tell you that they provide you with a “choice of photos” and “digital enhancements” (which of course is not legal) – we are governed by the technical specification issued by the relevant country.
Where we can add value (and often a saving in time with “retries”) is the quality of lighting, how best to position yourself for the most flattering image within the rules allowed and of course, when it comes to babies you don’t have to pay for the print before you find out it is technically wrong when using a passport booth in a shopping centre! We will continue taking photos until it is right!
We will select the correct image from the photos taken and no others will be processed or submitted, you can of course view the images before they are printed if you wish – but be prepared – passport photos are not professional photography portraits! If you want additional copies of the images we can provide these for an additional fee.
Payment can be by bank transfer prior to the session, cash on the day (we do not accept cheques) or credit card. If paying cash on the day, please bring the correct cash amount as we do not hold change on the premises.
