WHAT TO DO:
- If you're making a special trip in, please ring (04)382 9502 or email
for an appointment.
- Or just drop in during opening hours (10am-4pm, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, 11am-4pm Saturday)
Sometimes the photographer is busy with other work, and usually there's no photographer on Wednesdays
- We are famliar with the photo requirements for most countries, but it may help if you can provide the specifications for
the photo you require (see below)
- Hair: if you have rather a lot of it, sometimes it's hard to fit within the strict photo measurements! :-)
Perhaps bring a hair clip or prepare to tie it back. If you have a fringe, make sure it can be kept clear of your eyebrows
- Glasses are usually no problem, but if it looks like they could be, we'll give you photos with and without them on
- Babies are usually no problem, but it can help to pick a time of day when your baby is
usually both awake and reasonably settled. (We appreciate babies are not really that predictable :-)
- Because today's biometric photo regulations stipulate a 'neutral expression', a passport photo is not like a portrait, but we try and take the best
looking photo we can within what is allowed. If you need a photo for a job application or suchlike, try our
Quick Portrait or CV portrait services
