With the introduction of digital technology, passport photo standards are becoming increasingly stricter. This means that more and more passport and visa photographs, especially those taken in automatic photobooths, are being rejected by the Passport Agency.

At Avon Studios, we use professional cameras and the best studio lighting for your passport, visa, and blue badge / ID photos in our onsite studio to ensure the best quality and most flattering pictures, that are 100% guaranteed to pass.

Avon Studios are the only photographers in the Warwickshire who can offer the passport office approved ICAO Biometric check of your passport and visa photographs. We can even include a certificate to show it has passed the checks.

With online passport applications we can supply you with a digital code to enter on the Government’s website. The digital photograph is then uploaded to the application. There’s no fuss or hassle and they are guaranteed to pass. This option is now available for infant and baby Passport Photos online applications as well as adult passport photo online applications.

We also offer a digital code if you are applying for an Irish Passport for the republic of Ireland.  From November 2019, Irish citizens can apply for first time passports and renewals online this applies to both adult and child Irish passport applications. This applies if you are resident in Great Britain, Ireland or the EU. This service is not available anywhere else in the Stratford area.

Passport and Visa photographs are available for USA, Canada, India and China and most other Countries as well. We are the photographer of choice for many Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) staff for visa photos for India, America and China  We also recently photographed cast & crew from the Royal Shakespeare Company for their individual American visa applications.

We can also email you a digital version of your picture to use for online applications if required. We’ll ensure that the digital version for the required country passport or visa application is correctly sized.
