£9.99 per set

(UK size only 45mm x 35mm)

It is Not possible to take photos for USA or Canada passports
 or any visas which are Not the standard UK size ie India or background colour or specification ie Australia.
Refunds cannot be given if you submit a photo for a VISA or non UK passport which is then rejected due to incorrect size or specification.
Photos cannot be saved to disc/USB stick or emailed.
I will do everything to ensure as much as possible the photos are accepted. However if you think it would be preferable to see more than one set and make a choice please use one of the other services available ie a portrait photographer as this is not possible with my passport photo service.
UK Passport & Driving Licence photos
Adults & Children over 16 years.
Taken in store, in Cowes, using a traditional Polaroid passport camera & Fuji passport film by the owner (22 years experience) for adults & children over 16 years, not a booth. (Please scroll down for important information re passport photos for children) 
The camera used is still the best way to ensure perfect passport photos to meet UK standards as the photos cannot be altered in any way.
I use an approved off white background and a dedicated passport photo cutter.
Photos are checked to help ensure all requirements are met.  (Proof of rejection by relevant organisation required for a refund). .
Photos are cut to size and placed in a folder.
I will give advice on requirements to ensure maximum chance the photos will be accepted. Should you refuse to follow the advice I will refuse to take the photos if I am curtain beyond reasonable doubt the photos would be rejected.
It is not possible to take a further set unless you blink in which case one free retake is possible.
No booking is required and subject to serving other customers in the shop photos will be taken straight away & take approx. 4 minutes.
Photos are £8.99 for a set of four per person.
I provide a photo service at a competative price and so am unable to give any discounts for groups or for any other reason.
Beken & Son & the owner do everything possible to help photos meet requirements but cannot be held responsible for any action or loss that may result due to non compliance with any requirements and/or regulations or for any other reason.
In the very rare event that the photos are not approved I will give a refund but not retake the photos.
 CHILDREN OVER 16 YEARS. 
I WILL NOT TAKE BABY PASSPORT PHOTOS OR UNDER 16 YEARS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
THIS IS DUE TO THE PASSPORT FILM NOW BEING IN VERY LIMITED SUPPLY AND THE DIFFICULTY IN GETTING CHILD PASSPORT PHOTOS ACCEPTED HOWEVER I CAN STILL DO THEM FOR FOOTBALL, RAILCARDS ETC.
If you require passport photos for under 16's Robert Longford is a local photographer able to help.
Should there be a lot of customers in the shop during it may not be possible to take the photos straight away.
It is not possible to book a time slot and there are no discounts available for this service.
