Biometric Scan Compliant
Our Software fully supports preparing biometric passport photos in accordance with ISO/IEC-standard 19794-5, based on the geometric standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
Over 250 formats from 80 countries supported, if we don’t have yours we can created the format for you.
Just some of the regular countries we support, printed while you wait!
DISCLAIMER: WHILE WE HOLD SPECIFICATIONS AND TEMPLATES WITHIN OUR SOFTWARE FOR A NUMBER OF COUNTRIES, IT REMAINS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT AT ALL TIMES TO BE CLEAR ABOUT THE SPECIFICATION AND REQUIREMENTS THEY NEED. WE ARE NOT GOVERNMENT OR EMBASSY OFFICIALS AND CAN NOT GIVE OFFICIAL ADVISE AS TO YOUR SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS. COUNTRIES CHANGE THEIR SPECIFICATIONS FOR PHOTOS FROM TIME TO TIME AND WE CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF YOU HAVE REQUESTED AN INCORRECT FORMAT OR SPECIFICATION.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU CONTACT THE GOVERNMENT OR EMBASSY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CORRECT SPECIFICATION AND NUMBER OF COPIES REQUIRED PRIOR TO VISITING OUR STUDIO.
It should be noted that this is a passport, Visa or ID photo session are not a portrait session, posing, backgrounds and lighting is strictly controlled by the authorities who issue the specification.
The authorities are interested in the biometric 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 session 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 £5 per additional sheet.
Payment is required at the time of booking unless paying by cash on the day (we do not accept cheques). If paying cash on the day, please bring the correct cash amount as we do not hold cash/change on the premises.
