It’s Hip, it’s Now, it’s the Photo Booth. Well, it’s not really new it’s been around since the 1920’s. It’s creator, Russian born Anatol Josephewitz (later Josepho) left to us a legacy of instant entertainment and years of memories.
As a child Anatol was fascinated with photography and with his Brownie Box camera would travel the world with his father. As he grew and his education continued he opened his first photography studio in Budapest. Burning in the back of his mind was his idea of an automated photo machine. After years of travel and much research he went to Hollywood to learn about motion pictures and film making. After he learned what he needed he left to New York.
He began to raise money ($11,000.00) to accomplish his dream and in September 1925 he had opened up his Photomaton Studio on Broadway, between 51st and 52nd streets. Crowds, as many as 7,500 people a day, would line up to have their photos taken for 25 cents for a strip of eight: the place came to be known as ‘Broadway’s greatest quarter-snatcher.
As of the last few year I have seen this automated photo machine have new life in the event world. If you are hosting an event you must have the latest in automated entertainment. I agree, we as a culture have embraced this form of instant gratification coupled with our natural narcissistic frame of mind (Hee, hee, pun intended).
The photo booth will help your next event be a great success at prices that range from $450-$850. There are different photo options, photo books keepsakes and even instagram looks. Your guests will have the time of their lives not only being a part of your day but being able to participate in the photo fun.
