I got some passport photographs for my son, they have been rejected. In order to make my holiday did not have time to go back into town and pay for parking and get more. Used Tesco photo booth instead. No problems. Staff don't know what they are doing and actually had taken a few times to even get what I got at Max Speilman. Can't remember the exact cost now at MS or the Tesco booth but the Tesco booth was much better. Forget the MS guarantee use the Tesco booth. It will save you a lot of time… Read Full Review

My husband and son needed their passport photographs taking, we considered a booth since they are cheaper but decided to use the service at the shop. I was very satisfied with the service and speed. The photographer seemed to know exactly what she was doing and the photographs were perfect. I would definitely recommend Max Spielman @ Castleford… Read Full Review

Went with my daughter lilly for a portrait shoot and it was rushed to say the least. The manager was not so helpful,she was working on her own and wanted to serve other customers making me feel very unwanted and just an inconvienience to her.
The end results were 1 good shot and a load of rubbish! I asked if she could take a few more and she told me it she had to do figures for her boss so could not spare any more time… Read Full Review

I have been using Max Spielman for quick tests of old film cameras, by having a film developed and scanned to CD. The quality has now deteriorated to a level that can only be described as total cr@p. The shop staff do not take care of the film (it is allowed to drag on the floor); the development is often done with stale chemicals; light leaks across the film are common; scanning is very low resolution (nominally about 1.5megapixels); the image/file compression smears all details; the scan is… Read Full Review

I visited the new max spielmann branch in september 2010 whilst shopping in mansfield at the four season shopping centre. I was with my husband and our 4 year old grandson. We noticed the photo shoot available at £5.99 which was a fantastic price, so decided to give it a go with our grandson Liam as a surprise for his mum.
Apart from the store being incredibly busy, small and cluttered; and the young gentleman working there (name badge said the branch manager, Lee) trying (and succeeding) to… Read Full Review

Appalling after sales service. I purchased 2 photo packages from the Clydebank branch for my 2 year grandsons birthday. One of the pictures taken by a member of staff left a mark on his mouth which I thought might have been a reflection from the flash. When I returned to the shop to ask if they could remove this by airbrushing I was told they did not have this facility. I was told that in their opinion it was saliva. I then asked if I could choose another picture. The Manageress of the… Read Full Review

Got some pictures taken off my little girl yesterday at the local Max Spielman branch in Birkenhead and was delighted at the service, price and results. I ended up buying a 30x20 poster of the shot and they printed it on some new high speed high quality printer while I waited, it only took 5 minutes and looks brilliant!
I will be back next week to Max for a frame for it as the whole family love the poster and it will take pride of place in our living room.

Poor Quality Prints. Cheap stock sold for more than its worth. Aggressive selling techniques, if i want something ill ask for it i don't need to be bombarded with questions & suggestions. 5 Year ago their 6x4 instant prints were 19p each now they're 38p each. Much cheaper alternatives available elsewhere. Their Digital Camera's weren't up to much poor brand names Pratika, Vivitar, GE, Rolliei
Wouldn't send my worst enemy to one of their shops… Read Full Review

I recently went in to my local Max Spielmann store in Carcroft, which is situated within an Asda. On first glance you would imagine it to be an asda photo kiosk. I usually use Asda's printing facilities however the young chap within the store asked if i needed any help i was about to say no and leave but i saw the prices and saw the quality of service and the prints i will always remain loyal to Max from now on... i even purchased a loyalty card that gurantees 10% off for a whole… Read Full Review

Just got a canvas print from Birkenhead Max Spielman shop and was amazed at the quality and speed that they provided. I had been to Tesco but they could not promise it back in time for Xmas, Spielman use there own production apparently and are taking orders up to 16th December. The staff were very helpful, they explained that one photo I had would not be suitable as my little boys head was to close to the edge and would be wrapped around the frame. Makes a change for a store to tell you… Read Full Review
