Blackdown Photo Booths
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are you insured and is your equipment tested?
Yes, we are Public Liability insured and all of our booths are electrically PAT tested.

Q. Do you supply a member of staff?
Yes, every Photo Booth is operated for you throughout your event by one of our fully trained ‘Booth Butlers’.

Q. What equipment do you use and how good are the prints?
Our photo booths are fully touch screen operated and use top of the range Canon DSLR cameras to take your photos, then professional Mitsubishi dye sublimation printers to print them in ‘Studio Quality’ seconds later. In addition, they use a further dedicated camera to record video messages of any length.

Q. What is ‘Green Screen’?
Green Screen is a method often seen on television, for changing the background image of a photo or video – a good example is the weather forecast. Our photo booths are capable taking photos using Green Screen backgrounds and each photo booth is preloaded with loads of fun backgrounds or we can use your own (ie company logo/message or favourite location) if you’d prefer.

Q. Do you supply props?
Yes, every Photo Booth is supplied with loads of silly props including hats, wigs and glasses to add to the fun. If you’d prefer to supply your own props or you’d rather not have any, no problem, the choice is yours.

Q. What size are the prints?
Your photos are printed 6” x 4” (15cm x 10cm) on photo quality paper.

Q. Can my prints be personalised?
Most definitely, before your event, our in-house designer will help you choose your print layout, print background colour or design and green screen themes, then add your message or logo to ensure your prints are truly your own.

Q. Can my guests choose colour or black & white prints?
Yes, at each visit your guests can choose whether to print their photo in colour or black & white.

Q. Can the photos be uploaded to our Facebook page?
Yes - you have the option to have the photos uploaded directly to your Facebook page or an album on a business page during your event, enabling you to Like and Share as soon as they have been processed. Live Email, Facebook and other social media options require a stable internet connection with a minimum upload speed of 1MB/s. It is your responsibility to supply this connection.

Q. Do I get a copy of all of the photos and videos taken?
Yes, at the end of your event, your ‘Booth Butler’ will give a copy of all of the photos and videos taken in the booth on a USB stick (this includes the individual shots taken along with a copy of the final photo booth prints).

Q. Can my guests view the photos and videos after the event?
Of course, after your event we’ll email you a link (which you can share with your guests) to a secure website where you can view and download all of your photos and videos at your leisure.

Q. How many people can fit in the photo booth?
Our booths will accomodate 4 people comfortably.

Q. How much space do I need?
We need at least 10' wide by 10' deep and 7'6" high (3m wide by 3m deep and 2.3m high) to allow for the photo booth itself and an area for your guests to enter and exit it. In addition, if you are planning on using our included ‘Fun Props’ then we’d recommend using our display table, which will require a further 7' by 6' (2.1m by 1.8m) including dressing/standing room.

Q. What kind of power is required to run the photo booth?
All of our photo booths plug into a standard 3pin, 13amp household outlet. We will supply the cables and ask that nothing else be plugged into the outlet we are using. Placement of the unit should be no more than a 30' (10m) of cable length from that outlet (we will supply the cable).

Q. How long does set up and pack down take?
Set up and pack down usually take 45-60 minutes each. Consequently, unless you have booked additional idle hours (see below), we will arrive on site at least one hour before we are due to start operation (this is included in your hire fee and is not part of your operating time).

Q. What are idle hours?
Sometimes it may not be practical to set up and pack down the photo booth directly before or after an event. If for example, you require the booth setting up at 4pm but do not want it to be operated until 7pm; there would be an additional charge of 3 idle hours to the hire fee. Idle hours are charged from £25 per hour depending on location.

Q. Do you require a deposit & what are your payment terms?
A non-refundable deposit of £100.00 is required to secure your booking. Any remaining balance is due in full 30 days prior to your event.
