Passport and Visa photos fall into the category of a 'necessary evil' for most people. They are never going to be your favourite photo of yourself, particularly since such strict biometric standards were introduced, but you need to be sure they you have it right first time. Booths are one option although they can certainly be problematic if you are looking for pictures of a baby or small child or anything other than a non-standard UK passport image.
VisualChaos studios offer a professional passport, ID and visa photography service from our studio in Crawley Down. Whether you need a photograph that isn't offered by the standard passport booth, if you need a photograph of a baby or young child or just want something a little more flattering than the booths have to offer, then we can offer you a solution. Many passport and visa photos specifications now are dictated by the demands of

If you're looking to travel shortly and need to renew your passport, you might want to know that cost of applying for that all important document for both adults and children is set to increase from March 27th. The cost of an adult passport will go up to £85 (from £72.50) The cost of a child passport will rise to £58.50 (from £46) So it makes sense, if your passport is due to expire this year, or if you have
If you're planning to travel with a child and need to organise their first passport or visa, then you have probably already started to dread the photo taking process. The booths that are in shopping centres and supermarkets are not a great deal of fun for adults but for children, they can be a downright nightmare and if you're trying to take photos of a child before they can sit unaided, they're pretty much impossible. It's quite easy
So this was the very first photograph that I ever took ....Rubbish isn't it ! In my defence, I was only 11 and I just got my first SLR "Film" camera for Christmas, the EXAKTA RTL 1000 (I have one still today) and I was very excited to do something with it. So why not make your Mum go outside with a kitchen chair and read the newspaper? .... And yes it was a white Christmas! Hopefully, it wasn't too
Whatever you think about this rule, babies need to have their own passports now and therefore they need to have a passport photo. OK, yes, they will look very different in five years time but still, if you are travelling, you need to get the picture taken and it has to conform to the same stringent biometric standards as the adult version. No part of a supporting adult or seat can be in the photo

So whether it is the trend for vintage in general or my upcoming big 4 - o, I find myself very attracted to what would be considered vintage portraiture at the moment. Whilst cruising around the internet recently, I found this advert from Kodak in the 1920s. Kodak was the company that brought photography into the homes of thousands, even putting cameras into the hands of women (cue gasp) - but it still took photography seriously.
