How can I get an identity photo (eg for passports or other kinds of official documents, such as foreign visas) in the UK?
In France, for instance, there is the Photomaton group, which has booths in nearly every city, mostly in train stations and airports (and famously in the Amélie movie).
In the UK, the same group (http://www.photo-me.co.uk) has about 4 of them in the entire London area, all far from the city centre. So I wonder: how do people get this kind of pictures in the UK?
Note: googling for "uk printed identity photo" or something similar leads to several websites proposing how to print such photos, but the real challenge is taking them in the first place: given the number of constraints on such kinds of photos, it's unreasonable to expect people to take them using smartphones or point-and-shoot cameras: you need to control lighting, background, distance, etc. Which is the main advantage of using a photobooth for that.
