With the introduction of digital technology, passport photo standards are becoming increasingly stricter. This means that more and more photos, especially those taken in automatic photobooths, are being rejected by the Passport Agency
At Avon Studios we use professional camera’s and studio lighting for your passport, visa and blue badge / ID photos in our onsite studio to ensure the best quality and most flattering pictures.
All photographs undergo a biometric check and are guaranteed 100% to pass the strict government guide lines 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 passport application website which you enter and the digital photograph is sent directly to the application no fuss or hassle and guaranteed to pass . This option is now available for infant and baby Passport Photos online applications as well as adult passport photo online applications.
