Guaranteed passport photos while you wait

We can take passport photos for ANY country in the world, including America, India and Australia. Come in store to get your passport photo taken by a professional.

There are many do-it-yourself places that provide a passport photo service, such as a booth or online, but isn't it more safe to have your passport photograph taken by a person who is trained and can advise you on what the regulations are for each country? There's nothing more frustrating than a passport photo being rejected by an embassy after hours of queuing so be sure to come in store where we will advise you on the most up to date passport photo regulations and take your passport photo in accordance with these.

You also have the added benefit of being able to review your photo to make sure you are happy with it before it's printed as it's going to be in your passport for a good few years! If you're not happy, we'll take another one for you.

We also do baby passport photos. Our passport photographers know how hard it can be at times to get a baby or young child to stay still long enough, let alone with the correct facial expression, whilst they get their passport photo taken. Our passport photographers are patient and are on hand to offer advice and support so the situation is stress-free.

Focus Studio can take passport photos in colour and black and white, whilst you wait! These are ideal to use for driving licenses, identity cards, oyster cards, visas and student cards etc.

Get your passport and I.D photos done correctly at Focus Studio and you will have no hassle with image regulations.
