Passport Photography

Do you do passport/visa photography? Yes, we have 2 drop in sessions per week, Saturday 10-12am and Wednesdays from 3-5pm and you can just turn up, no appointment required during these times.

How much do passport photos cost? A set of passport photographs are £10, worldwide visa photographs are £12.

How many pictures do I get for that? We print 8 standard size passport size photographs to a sheet (35x45mm), we will cut 4 out for you, if you need more cut out, just ask - it is not a problem.

I have a newborn baby, can you do his/her passport photos? Of course we can!  Please get in touch for an appointment if baby is under 3 months old.

I need an ID photograph for a blue badge, can you help? Yes we can, however our studio has 2 steps outside which means that it is not easy to access with a wheelchair.  If you use a wheelchair, or may struggle with the steps please get in touch, we offer a friendly mobile service so can come out to serve you.

I need ID photographs for my shotgun licence, do you do that?  We do, make sure you let us know that you need extra cut out, the police usually require 4 or 6 prints.

Do you do drivers licence / visa / ID photos? Yes we do, if you have to provide different specifications or a different format, please bring the guidelines along to the studio with you and we will make sure your photographs are correct. (we can look these up specific country regulations if you don't have them with you)

What if I can't make your regular drop in sessions? Please get in touch, we can make an appointment for you to come in at a time convenient to you, we are usually around M-F, 10am-2pm.

Passport, ID and Visa Photographs, taken by a Professional Photographer, ready in minutes…

At Pictorial Photography on Berwick Quayside, I can now take passport/visa photos for any country. 

Shortly after Smith's Photo Centre on Bridge Street closed, Pictorial Photography started to see an increase of requests for passport photography and other specialist services such as visa photographs, driving license ID, shotgun licenses and disabled badge pictures.

In the past I had always sent people to Bridge Street for them but all of a sudden the nearest passport and ID specialist was in Alnwick or Duns and nobody really likes the supermarket booths.

I decided then to undertake the specialist training and purchase the equipment that Pictorial Photography required to produce high quality passport, ID and visa photos on the spot for locals.

Since adding this new arm to the business, I have taken many different formats and styles of passport photograph, each embassy has slightly different regulations but I makes sure no matter which nationality of passport or visa photo my customers require that they all conform to the specific regulations.


There are many do-it-yourself places that provide a passport photo service, such as a booth or online, but wouldn't you prefer your passport photograph be taken by a professional who can advise you on what the regulations are for each country?  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, I will take another one for you.

Baby passport photos can be fun, being a family photographer I know how hard it can be at times to get a baby or young child to stay still long enough, let alone with a neutral facial expression whilst they get their passport photo taken.  I am very patient and can be on hand to offer advice and support so the situation is stress-free.  My aim is to make having the passport picture taken an easy task, not a chore. (for a small call out fee I offer an at home service for customers who can't manage to call in to the studio themselves, contact me for details about this service on 07762 428 096)

To make sure that your Passport / Visa / ID passes all the regulations, just pop in to Pictorial Photography and within minutes you will walk away with the right photo for your requirements.  With Quayside parking on the doorstep it couldn't be easier.

Pictorial Photography is open from 10am-12.00pm Saturdays and 3pm-5pm Wednesday for passport photography drop in sessions.  No appointment needed, just pop in when you are passing or ring Sarah on 07762 428 096 if you have any questions.

Our New Office, Shore Gate

Fantastic News!!!  I've just picked up the keys to our new office on Berwick Quayside.  It's a beautiful landmark building with ample parking on the doorstep in a brilliant location for photo shoots... Watch this space for photographs of the new locations...

I've also sourced a few, interesting old photographs from when the area was a ship yard, my grandpa, Cyril used to work there in the 70's see if you can spot him on the group photo 3rd from the left hiding at the back.
