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.
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:
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.
