Photo Activation Marketing: Effective and Experiential

Photo activation marketing consists of the use of photos to connect brands with customers.  Brand activation, or brand engagement, also focuses on building a lasting connection with event attendees and a specific brand.  Brands of all sizes understand the importance of engagement and the opportunity that events offer.

Not only is it effective and fun, but it is now becoming more measurable thanks to improvement in technology and companies that provide post event analytics.  In addition, social media integrated photo activations are becoming more common and more successful in the event marketing industry.

 Measuring the Effectiveness of Photo Activation

When it comes to any type of marketing activation, data and measurable results are crucial to understanding the impact of the campaign.  Statistics such as number of photos taken, number shared to Facebook, Twitter, or other social media outlets, and number of impressions that the photos received can help marketing teams delve deeper into the effectiveness and return on investment.

The “Do’s and the Don’ts” for reserving a photo booth.

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

What is really important when choosing a Chicago Photo Booth Company?

Reliability, Quality Service, and Real Photo Booths!

The market is becoming saturated with over night photo booth companies. A lot are competing strictly on price and “cut corners” on actually providing a quality experience.

Here is a list of what to look for in a real photo booth company.
1) Quality / Up to date equipment / Real photo booths
2) DSLR Cameras
3) Sub Dye Printers that “cut” strips in half
4) Amazing staff that is interested in your event. Helps out with guests and solves any problems quickly and efficiently.
5) Trained in photography (attends classes). Knows about lighting issues and can make the pictures look perfect.
6) Experienced in working with vendors / event coordination. (we do over 500 events per year with 2 companies that we have. We execute flawlessly.
7) Calls clients and stays in touch with them. We make sure our attendants confirm all the information with your reservation.
8) Amazing customer service. The best in the industry. We have over 200 reviews and we are the “best” to work with.

What you don’t want.
1) Home-made booths
2) Web Cameras (even in some high quality booths) Images don’t look good at all
3) Inkjet printers – Some companies use these and the quality isn’t good. They don’t cut in half and are using scissors
4) Uninterested staff from lack of payment. If a company is providing a booth for $300 then they aren’t making profit. Hence you sacrifice staff and equipment at the same time for a “low quality” experience.
5) Lack of communication with clients. Not knowing if they will show up.
6) Bad customer service. Doesn’t answer calls. Responds to emails a week or two later.

Man Who Took 445 Photo-Booth Self-Portraits Over 30 Years

Monday, April 14th, 2014

The man sat down in the booth, pulled the curtain shut, posed, and waited for the click. He repeated the process at least 445 times over the course of 30 years, from the time of the Great Depression well into the 1960s.

Now, his impressive collection of photobooth snaps is unveiled for the first time at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers, as part of “Striking Resemblance: The Changing Art of Portraiture,” an exhibition on display through July.

a

Don Lokuta, a photography historian, stumbled on these images at an antiques show in New York in 2012. When the dealer told him there were hundreds more like them, he was stunned. “I knew this was very rare, but on a deeper level, I wondered, ‘Why would somebody want to take almost 500 photos of himself in a photobooth?’ he told Rutgers in an interview.

The snapshots themselves, seen as a collection, are startling: the same face etched into the silver gelatin prints over and over again. Sometimes he’s smiling, at times he looks stern, pensive, or inquisitive. These images force the viewer to seek out the minute differences in his expressions and aging appearance—the evolution from dark, slicked-back hair to a grayish white.

The leading theory behind the photos is that this man was testing the photobooth equipment after repairing it, a narrative similar to that of of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s delightful Amélie. In the film, photobooths play a central role in bringing together the shy waitress and her quirky prince, who happens to collect discarded photobooth photos. One man in particular resurfaces time and time again in the pictures. Unlike the film, however, this ostensible repairman kept the evidence of his tests.

In the early stages of putting this exhibit together, Lokuta approached photobooth historian Näkki Goranin, who as it turned out, had photos of the same man. They tracked the man to Michigan, where the images first appeared at an auction, but there the trail grew cold.

Donna Gustafson, the curator of the Zimmerli exhibit hopes it will bring to light more information on this mysterious man. She adds, “if it is true that this was a man just doing his job, he ended up creating something extraordinary.”

Photo Booth Rentals: Tips for Reserving a Photo Booth for your Next Event

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Photo booth rentals are great for all kinds of events from a birthday party , to a wedding, and corporate function just to name a few. Weddings are the most popular setting for a photo booth rental and a top entertainment feature for guests. Ultimately though if you are having any kind of party (whether big or small) a photo booth rental will make your guests happy and have them thanking you for a memorable party.

Here are some great general tips to take into mind when you are planning your next event and want to incorporate a photo booth rental for the party.

1) Make sure you have your date picked out before you apply for pricing. This will help you get the best price as possible.

2) What is your guest count?Having a very large party?You will want more hours of service so more guests can experience the photo booth.

3) If you are having a wedding then your photo booth rental should include a scrap book which is made on site with photos from the photo booth. This is an extra charge option for a large majority of photo booth service businesses.

4) Props are a whole lot of fun and enhance the photography in the photo booth. 😛 Even grandma will try them on and have a laugh!

5) The new trend in photo booths is the group style booth: the more guests you can fit in the photo booth,the more fun your guest will have.

6) The traditional sized print for a photo booth is 2 x 6 inches. If the business does not offer this then they are not a true photo booth rental business.

7) Stay clear of online group style deals:often clients are cancelled on at the last minute. Go with an experienced company that won’t cancel on you in the last minute.

8) When renting a photo booth make sure you have enough space for the booth.If you have a large guest list then odds are you will have a line for the photo booth and there needs to be space for this.

9) Photo booths are great for weddings, bar/t mitzvahs, sweet 16/15’s,retirement parties, tailgate parties, corporate functions, trade shows, & birthday parties just to name a few.

10) Lastly do your research and make sure the business you are working with is an experienced business with great reviews.

We provide the BEST! Photo Booths!

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

When many people consider a photo booth company, they often overlook the actual quality of the equipment when shopping between brands. As with anything else, not all photo booths are created equal and each and every piece of equipment should be up to par. From the most important elements like the camera, all the way to the outside enclosure, each and every piece counts. Most people would not buy a product that worked well on the inside but the exterior design was flawed, unsightly or poorly made, right? The same concept applies here. The camera is just a part of the booth but you want the complete package and the enclosure is key piece of that package.

Magic Moment Photo Booth is proud to use cutting edge top of the line enclosures in order to stay at the top of the game in both the Chicago and Los Angeles areas. We also boast three different styles to accommodate most any type of needs or event – “The Classic Magic Booth”, “Magic Party Booth” and the “Magic Open Air”. (*Insert links to page)

Some lower end photo booths often use cheap pop up tent style enclosures. Not only are these enclosures unsightly, they are also a hazard and stand a chance of getting in the way of your photos or your guests by falling in front of the lens. The fabric is custom cut specifically for our photo booths in order to ensure a smooth experience from start to finish. No need to worry about the enclosure catching, difficulty opening or closing, or any type of situation. It fits perfectly with our equipment to ensure that it does not get in the way of any lights or electronics where there may be hot temperatures. The fabric is thick, fire retardant and manufactured at upmost quality above the industry standard. In the extremely rare chance of any emergency situation or accident, there is absolutely no chance of the booth going up in flames due to the fabric. This unfortunately is not the case with cheaper made enclosure fabrics.

All Magic Moment Booths carry sturdy support beams that allow for guests to comfortably move around in the booth and enjoy the space without having worrying about damaging or knocking the enclosure. Unlike cheaper companies who often use PVC or other flimsy piping, Magic Moment’s enclosures are manufactured from high-grade aluminum making them sleek, sturdy and lightweight. Also, the lush fabric of the backdrop creates a rich looking background that accentuates the features of your guests and makes for the perfect photograph. The difference is like night and day.

With three different styles and sizes, most all parties can be accommodated for. Our largest enclosure, the “Magic Party Booth” – is 6 feet wide, 7 feet deep and 7 feet tall and can comfortable fit up to 12 people! No need to worry about cramming into small space or people being cut out of the photograph, everyone can join the party to create epic memories that will last a lifetime. The more the merrier, make your photos come to life with the energy of all your friends in one photo booth to create the unique experience that can only be captured behind the magic curtain.

Classic Magic Booth – The original favorite, this booth is the perfect size: not too big or too small and perfect for those who may not need large family photos in the booth, but still want a crowd. The classic booth can comfortably accommodate up to six guests and comes with a stool for the added option of sitting or, if necessary, to ensure that everyone fits into the frame of the picture. Equipped with our premium fabric, the enclosure is placed on a curved pipe that is similar to the style of a shower curtain. This allows for smooth and easy access for your guests to open and close. The booth is also wheel chair accessible in order to ensure that no one is left out of the fun.

The Open-Air Booth – Perfect for any event. Just as it sounds, there is no enclosure and the freedom of the open air. Custom backdrops can be added, as well as our red carpet accessory to make it the ultimate party booth. Great for any wedding and perfect for corporate events – in which company logos can be projected onto the backdrops for the ideal promotional opportunity. You want your brand prominently displayed as much as possible and what better way to do it? The logo will be a part of the photos your guests will bring this home as part of their memory. The potential of this booth is ideal for marketing or branding but is also a great deal of fun at any event.

With all three styles, you are certain to find something that works for you and your vision. As with anything, be sure to choose quality and elegance on your special day.  Unfortunately, cheap enclosures look and feel like an old set of tacky drapes. You want every element of your wedding to look pristine. Instead of opting out with unprofessional looking homemade equipment, our enclosures are top of line and are manufactured to the highest industry standard in order to ensure the upmost durability and quality for our customers. We see the big picture and understand every aspect that plays into that picture. Come check out why Magic Moment Photo Booth is becoming a premier photo booth service in the Chicago land and now Los Angeles areas.

Bridal Show Chicago Photo Booth

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Today Magic Moment Photo Booth was at the Chicago Bridal show at the Westin Michigan Avenue.  The turn out was amazing and it was the best show we have been to and yet to do.  The atmosphere and the vibe of all the guests and vendors was amazing.  We had a great time communicating with prospective clients and explaining our photo booths and services and how they are different/better from the rest of the competition out there.  We had our big party booth which is the biggest in chicago.  It has a real photo both enclosure and is wider and longer than any other booth out there on the market.  Not only is it bigger, but it has a better build quality than (tent photobooths) and uses professional grade material to make it fit in with the decor of your event.  We heard guests say that our photo booth was the best and same with the props.

It truly makes us happy with the level of AMAZING feedback we got from everyone.  This is why we are in business!  We are/and we want to remain the BEST Photo Booth company in Chicago and are expanding into the L.A. market to provide amazing and unique experiences there as well.

We would like to thank everyone who came out and enjoyed their Sunday at the Bridal Expo and with us.  We look forward  to doing many bridal expos in the future as well.  So if you are looking for an amazing photo booth vendor in the chicago area that truly cares about your special day and will go the extra distance for you then look no further! #MagicMomentPhotoBooth
