ID & Passport: Chinese

Hassle-free, high quality Chinese 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.
