Why have a Photo Booth at your event ?

Suitable for all ages any gathering of people whether for a wedding ,social party or corporate and marketing event -this is a great reason to have a photo booth.

Despite the small area and easy set up the booth will act as a focal point for guests or clients to congregate – what a great way of getting people together.

There are two main types of booth ; the ‘open’ or ‘studio booth’ where the guests stand in front of a custom backdrop or even the background and furnishing of the venue itself ;particularly effective if it’s a high end luxury location. These open photo booths offer a spontaneous experience -commonly ,  groups of people will gather together to see how many they can get into a picture. A fantastic ” ice breaker” and networking opportunity especially with suitable props.

 The other style of photo booth ;-is the ‘enclosed’ booth which is comparable to a passport or driving license photo machine. These usually come with a stool and a privacy curtain. Small groups can squeeze in and pose for a variety of pictures with or without props. Nowadays ,classic motor vehicles are being adapted as working photo booths. Particular favourites are the iconic London or New York Taxis and the original VW camper van.                                                                      

Both types of photo booth offer the ability to instanly print a strip of photos for guests. After all , who does not like to take home a real photo in their hands ? It is both entertaining and something to go in the goody bag or a party favour.

      Our Everybooth ® integrates the most influential social media platforms and can upload to Facebook ® and Twitter® complete with corporate branding or an ididividual message. Now that is what we call “spreading the news”                                                              

For marketing or ‘brand activations’ this is such a powerful way to promote a business we refer to our booth as “The Swiss Army Knife” of digital marketing. It will add a buzz to your event spreading your message in a subtle way with the possibility of going viral on the web. An amazing opportunity to get increased customer ‘likes’ on your Facebook page or ‘retweets’ for better engagement with your current and potential clients. Great photographs deserve to be put on display -and so does your company or brand.

What is a pop up studio and how will it boost your event?

A pop-up or portable studio along with photo booths are now an essential addition to all high-end events and promotions.

From corporate parties and team building, trade & award events, consumer promotions or brand activations and large fundraising events.

Often compared and often mistaken for a photo booth the  pop up studio offers a studio environment with associated lighting where a professional photographer will direct participants into the most flattering pose for the best looking images.

The studio is often used in conjunction with instant onsite photographic printing which can be branded with client or sponsor logos and artwork.

As well as walking away with a high-quality photograph guests can also share the photographs online keeping your brand in front of potential clients.
