FAQ - PHOTO BOOTH

 

WHAT IS AN OPEN AIR PHOTO BOOTH?

Think of us as a mini photo studio with room for you and all your friends! We provide a pop-up backdrop, studio lighting, an interactive touch screen with live view, instant printing, a friendly photo booth attendant and some of the coolest props imaginable.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

We are located in the Sutherland Shire, Sydney. We service Sydney, South Coast, Southern Highlands, Hunter Valley and pretty much anywhere we can drive to. Additional travel fees may apply for areas outside of Sydney. 

SO, WHAT HAPPENS TO MY PHOTOS AFTER MY EVENT?

Within 48 hours of your event we will load your images to an online gallery on our website (this can be password protected if you wish). In the week following your event, we'll send you a USB memory stick with all of your images in high resolution, to do with as you please. 

CAN WE HAVE OUR PHOTOS UPLOADED TO FACEBOOK?

Yes! We can set up a live Facebook gallery for you. Seconds after your photo is taken your guests will be able to like and share it straight from our Facebook gallery.

DO YOU PROVIDE PROPS?

We do!  We have an ever-growing selection of gorgeous props -- moustaches galore, hip glasses, and vintage hats.  Have a theme in mind?  We'd be happy to help you source the props you need. 

DO YOU HAVE INSTANT PRINTING?

We most certainly do! Our printer will have your smiling faces printing in ink before you can say "Photo Corner Rules"!.  

DOES MY HIRE TIME INCLUDE SET-UP AND PACK-DOWN?

You do not pay for the time it takes us to set up and pack down.  We will arrive at your event approximately one hour before your hire time begins to set up.  We will begin to pack-down five minutes after your hire has ended. We also offer an early bump-in up to 2 hours before your hire time for no additional charge. Please let us know if you require an early bump-in time.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE IN THE PHOTO BOOTH?

We use top-of-the-line digital technology.  We operate with a Canon digital SLR camera and the most trusted studio lighting equipment. Your photos will be of professional quality.  

HOW MAY PEOPLE CAN YOU FIT IN THIS PHOTO BOOTH OF YOURS?

You can fit in an entire flock. We don’t like squashing people into confined spaces so we set up a whole area for your photo taking pleasure. We can fit anywhere from 2-12 people in the booth.  

WHO TAKES THE PHOTOS?

We have very clever software that helps us with this. Our touch screen starts a count down to a sequence of photos with 3 seconds in-between each photo. Either your guests can touch the screen to get things started or our friendly attendant can touch it for them. You will be able to view all your photos instantly on the screen displayed. 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE THE PHOTO BOOTH?

For private events (like weddings and birthdays), consider a time when your guests will be relaxed, not too early and not too late. At expos and promotional events, the flow of people is often quite different and we will work with you to customise a package to give you the most value for money. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

HOW LONG SHOULD I BOOK THE PHOTO BOOTH FOR?

Our minimum hire time is 3 hours which we find is usually the perfect amount of time for most events. For events with more than 100 guests or where dinner service and other formalities will take some time consider 4-5 hours. We can help you decide on the perfect time for your event.  

HOW MANY PHOTOS CAN WE TAKE?

You can take as many as you like there’s no limit! If there’s someone standing in front of the camera we’ll be clicking the shutter. 

WHAT ARE YOUR ACCESS REQUIREMENTS?

We require access to a stable source of power. We can set up outside but we need to be fully protected from rain and wind and direct sunlight.  A solid, level surface is best with min 3m x 3m floor space. It's always good to discuss the specific details of your venue with us, but as long as all of these things are in place, we should be good to go!

WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT POLICIES?

We accept payment via bank deposit. We can accept Credit Card but a 2% surcharge will apply. When you secure your date, we require a 25% deposit, and the balance due 2 weeks prior to your event.
