UK Passport Application Change

Recently, the British Empire shifted their requirements regarding updating your UK Passport. No longer are subjects allowed to apply at the consulates in foreign countries. Beginning in 2018, anyone needing to update their British Passport must do so via snail-mail directly in the United Kingdom. You must now MAIL your renewal application and photo to England!

This can take much longer than applying here at a consulate in the US. This also means that if you send them a photo that doesn't meet their exact requirements and it gets rejected, your passport faces a considerable delay in getting issued!

If you want to eliminate any worries about your passport photos being rejected, costing you time and money, call Newsome's Studio of Photography and get it right the first time.

Newsome's Studio is located in Carrollwood (North Tampa) at 10012 N. Dale Mabry Hwy, Suite 219, behind Starbucks at the corner of Linebaugh Ave and N. Dale Mabry Hwy.

By appointment only... 813-968-2810.

Passport Photo Studios in Tampa

Honestly, there aren't very many.

In fact, there are very few photography studios left in the Tampa area at all. Most photography businesses these days are either part-timers, or "on location only" shooters... they don't have camera rooms ("the world is my camera room!"). And that's fine, but they will not be able to accommodate passport photos.

Your only other choices besides a professional photography studio are travel clubs, drug stores, or shipping outlets, however, they typically only offer US passport sizes (2x2"). They're incapable of providing foreign passport photos that are measured in millimeters, and THAT'S where a professional STUDIO comes to the rescue.

Newsome's Studio of Photography, located in North Tampa (Carrollwood) at 10012 N. Dale Mabry Hwy, Suite 219, Tampa, has been providing professional passport photos for US passports and every other country on the planet (measured in millimeters) for over 30 years.

By appointment only, contact the studio at 813-968-2810 and schedule your 10 minute appointment to get it right the first time!
