ID & Passport: French

Hassle-free, high quality French ID and passport photography at our Brighton Studio.

Let’s be honest, few people are ever happy with their passport photos. What’s more, unsupervised children in photo booths will only ever end in tears! Why settle for a sub-standard, potentially incorrect image?

What you get.

We’ll provide you with printed and/or digital files that meet the required specifications. For less than the cost of two failed attempts in a photo booth, you can rest assured that you will be provided with a decent spot-on image and you’ll be supporting a local business.

We can provide a copy printed on request, or in digital format and the whole process (including the shoot) should take approximately 15 – 20 minutes.

Visa Requirements

– Every application must have two photos printed on high-quality, glossy paper. For visas, the photo must be glued to the application.
– Clothing specifications are not listed, however, a good rule of thumb is to keep the color of your top in contrast with the background. In other words, don’t wear white or a light color. Also, avoid any military or law enforcement uniforms for security sakes.
– Your head needs to take up 70-80% of the entire photo. Be sure it measures 30mm-36mm from the bottom of your chin to the top of your forehead.
– Smiling is almost never acceptable, especially for passport or visa photos. Keep face relaxed, mouth closed, and an overall neutral expression.
– Eyes need to be seen clearly. Prescription and reading glasses are advised to be removed before the photo is taken.
– Headgear such as hats, hairpieces, and other items are not permitted. The only exception is for religious or medical headwear. Either one must show the entire face without disruption.
– Keep lighting even. Shadows don’t allow for a full view of the face. Overexposed and underexposed photos are almost always rejected.
– Focus is key. Any blur to a photo is unacceptable.
– Wearing a beard is allowed if you wear one normally. Don’t grow one out for your close up.
– Ears should be visible. Tuck hair behind the ears and off the face.
-Make sure your eyes have no red in them. If it does, the image must be retaken as digital alterations of any sort or never permitted.
