New UK Online ePhoto
We now support, for an additional fee, the UK Government’s ePhoto ‘Code’ online application process, where we give you a unique code that the UK Passport Office uses to connect to your photo. It is important that you ask for this service BEFORE your session, along with payment being made at the time of booking.
A new ePhoto Code service that the Passport Office has released now simplifies the online application process and is available for everyone. This process can save you time, you do it at home, it’s simple! We take your photo, meeting all the technical specifications the UK Passport Office requires, then process it using our passport specific software which will provide you with a ePhoto Code, along with your photos. You then access the UK Passport Office online application website – here is the link: https://www.gov.uk/apply-renew-passport then select “I have a code to enter” when prompted online, your ePhoto will appear automatically for you to use. It is important that you request this service and pay for it at the time of booking.
There is an additional free for electronic “sPhoto Codes and ePassport Formats”. Please use the links on this page for current pricing.
If you are looking for an ID / Visa photograph that isn’t catered for by the standard photo booths, or even if you just want a passport photograph that is a little more flattering than the machines have to offer, we can help.
When we take a Passport, Visa or ID/License photograph, we use the same high quality lighting and cameras that we would use on any of our portrait sessions for guaranteed results. We offer a while-u-wait service and will include all the images you need at your requested technical specification for your country using our state-of-the-art bi-metric software.
We have all the details and specifications necessary to create your passport and ePassport photographs for a standard UK passport, UK IDs, UK Driving License and UK Gun License as you would expect, but also, we many of the technical specification necessary for other countries as well, in fact there are over 280 formats for 87 countries in our database with new specification entered all the time, for a full list please see above.
If your country requirement is not listed then we can still shoot the pictures for you, we just need to know the technical specification to create the correct templates. At all times, you should allow plenty of time to obtain your photos and process with the applicable authorities, don’t leave it to the last minute!
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 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 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 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.
