  • How does the Photo Booth work?

Just walk in an touch "Start."   All our Photo Booths use an easy touch screen interface.   During each session, you'll see yourself on the screen while the Photo Booth counts down for each pose.  At the end of the session, the Photo Booth plays a slide show while it prints your strips.  Our printers are fast - only 15 seconds and you'll have your print. There's more information about the photo booths here.

As many as you can cram in.  For our Standard Photo Booth, you'll sit on a wide bench seat; people typically cram in on each side for larger groups.  For our English Phone and Police Box - Photo Booths, a few people can cram in, or for larger groups, the camera and monitor extend forward for people outside the door.  The Phone and Police Box Photo Booths are larger than a standard old phone booth.
