Timpsons Photo Service Information

  1. Passport Photo Prices

    In Timpsons, it's at least ten pounds for a set of official passport photos in printed form (a digital version and a code are available upon request). By contrast, our website gives you printable digital images and a photo code for FREE.
  2. Photoshoot Time

    Ideally, a photo session in any of the retailer's branches should take a couple of minutes. However, there may be lines during peak hours. Let us be your time-saver: upload your image here and get an approved passport photo in seconds.
  3. Participating Branches

    With more than 1300 Timpsons stores in the UK, you're very likely to have one in your area. But mind that the branch you need may not have the facilities needed to take your passport photo. If that's the case, get your image in our online tool.
  4. Photo Guarantee

    Before printing, in-store employees check your picture against the UK rules. PhotoBooth does the same: we fine-tune our web tool in accordance with the official passport photo guidelines issued by His Majesty's Passport Office.
  5. Opening Times

    Most of Timpsons open at 9 AM and close at 6 PM (and operate fewer hours on Sundays). If you can't visit their branch during these, PhotoBooth Online can help you out—we'll prepare a perfect passport photo anytime you need.
  6. Picture Format

    The usual format for Timpson passport photos is a printout with several pictures in it (but you can request a digital file and a photo code). As for PhotoBooth, we offer a digital passport photo, a printable template AND a photo code.
  7. How It Works

    In the shop, a Timpson employee captures and prints your images (you can't order printouts online). In our UK service, photos are processed automatically—you just upload a camera shot and get a compliant passport picture back for free.
  8. Ultimate Privacy

    Timpsons never shares your images with anyone—be it your original shot or the final passport photo. PhotoBooth is even more private: here, each picture is processed by an automatic algorithm, so we don't even see them.

Timpson Passport Photo: Common Questions

  1. Do Timpsons do passport photos?

    The majority of them do. Although the UK-wide chain mostly specialises in such services as key cutting, shoe/watch/phone repair, engraving and the like, there’s also photo taking and processing. You can get an image for various documents, professional passport photos included. In addition, the employee will give you prompts during the photo session (say, they’ll helpfully tell you not to smile in passport photo).
    There are more than a thousand Timpson’s stores in the United Kingdom, so you should have a convenient location not far from you. Although there’s no need to book an appointment to take a passport photo, it’s better to phone ahead before you head to any of their locations. It may happen that this exact branch doesn’t take images or is simply closed for the day.

  2. Do Timpsons provide digital passport photos?

    Yes, they do. In fact, should you choose to take your picture at Timpson, you can get the full set: after the employee captures your image, you get its printouts, a digital passport picture AND a special code upon request.
    This will guarantee maximum flexibility in terms of application for your new travel document:

    • With a digital shot, you’ll be able to apply online from anywhere, be it your home or work. To do that, simply use the official page (
    • It gets even easier with a passport photo code: apply at the same online submission page and put it in the respective field when asked. In a matter of seconds, the system will read the code and add your picture to the digital application form
    • And even if you change your mind at some point and decide to submit your passport photo and the application by post, you’ll still have the printed photos to do it
  3. How much are passport photos at Timpsons UK?

    Although taking your pictures out of home is almost a thing of the past, Timpson branches still ask at least ten pounds for this. Unfortunately, there’s hardly any way to cut corners and reduce this price since they don’t seem to offer any alternative options.
    Where you CAN save money, however, is our free online passport photo tool. In contrast with Timpson’s, everything here is completely free. There won’t be any hidden payments or unexpected fees. We won’t ask for your credit card details or personal info. You simply upload your photo, wait a few seconds and get a 100% compliant passport photo back.
    And in case you want to have it printed, we’ll still be helpful to you. Along with the digital version of your shot (and a photo code), we’ll also give you a print-ready template that you can save and have reproduced wherever you want.
