The ShootBooth Rental

The ShootBooth is the antidote for people so addicted to taking photo booth shots at their favorite bar that they can't hang without one at parties and other private events. Designed to resemble a gigantic, antiquated camera, the eight-foot long encasement actually houses a professional-quality digital SLR camera, complete with a built-in lighting setup. Photo subjects can enter the camera "body" (or pop their head in from one of the side openings) and press the button to activate a countdown to the picture. At the end of the night, the resulting shots can be printed or burned to CD.

The backdrop to the ShootBooth is completely customizable. Depending on the theme of your party, the booth can be outfitted accordingly. And to ensure that you strike the optimum pose, the camera takes the picture from behind a one-way mirror that acts as a photo preview.

The ShootBooth was recently unleashed at last Saturday's Williamsburg Walks event in Brooklyn, and can be expected at future New York-area events. Take a look at the gallery for previous examples, or contact them to arrange your own shoot and inquire about rates.
