Over the years have completed hundreds of passport photos in Southampton as well as visa photographs for all over the world.

Sue and I pride ourselves in being open to lots of different genres with passport and visa photographs being just one of them.

If you need a professional passport photo in Southampton then look no further. Julian Porter photography has a fully modernised passport suite here in our studio in Bassett with ample free parking and changing facilities.

We know how challenging it can be to get yourself posed just right in order to take the right photo (especially with babies!), at the right angle, and with the right background. It’s not easy, and many of the customers who visit us have lost count of the amount of money they have pumped into passport machines trying to get it right.

However, by using our services, you can be sure that you will have just the right photo, with the correct dimensions, angles, and backgrounds that will be accepted by the government’s passport agency. In the unlikely event that your passport photo is not accepted we offer a free reshoot provided its within 1 month of us supplying your photo. After this time you will need to pay the fee again. UK passports must be submitted within 1 month of the photo being taken.

How much does a passport photo in Southampton cost?

Please note our new post Coronavirus pricing.  It takes considerable time and money to prepare and clean our passport area between clients plus the PPE needed to be able to operate within government guidelines. Our newborn blanket needs washing after every baby passport hence the price difference. 

Passports need to be paid up front so please choose the link below to pay or contact me with any questions

Please note that due to being closed so much in the past year and the time that it now takes to clean the studio between clients unfortunately we cannot offer passport photos during the weekends
