Q: Can you tell me about your company, HootBooth® Photo Booth?
A: HootBooth Photo Booth, LLC is a manufacturer of photo booth kiosk made in USA! Our company is comprised of photographers, technology and business professionals who have been renting and selling photo booth equipment for over five years.
Q: I see you offer several categories of photo booths. What are the main differences?
A: You can view a visual comparison chart of our various photo booth products here. The HootBooth® Photo Booth is our commercial-grade, flagship product which provides a completely integrated 'print+social booth' functionality - an all in one kiosk! This complete integration and voice guided 'virtual attendant' makes it easy for guests to operate the photo booth themselves; yep, you heard that right - this model does not require an attendant to be present at the event. In this model, the photo printer and the social booth functionality are completely housed in one durable kiosk and includes a 23.8" commercial-grade touchscreen display that makes it ideal for corporate events such as trades hows, festivals and retail establishments where the photo booth kiosk will be more stationary. We also offer a 'social booth' only version of this product for people who are only needing the social booth functionality.
The HootBooth® DSLR EventPRO Photo Booth includes advanced photo booth features for photo booth event professionals that still wish to print photos and upload photos to social media but also want to offer green screen removal, animated GIF, video, slow motion video, Sketch Booth and other types of special filters such as Comic Book, Warhol and more! We offer two sizes of EventPRO's. Our standard size, weighing 62 lbs., includes a large 21.5" touch screen display and a powerful PC with a 1 Terabyte hard drive. Our HootBooth® MINI DSLR EventPRO Photo Booth weighs only 44 lbs. and includes a 12" touchscreen display with a Surface Pro 4 tablet, 4GB RAM, 128GB HDD and a second 16" display in the back to showcase a slideshow of images or corporate branding and advertising!
We also offer the Hoot #Hashtag Instragram Printer station which is the latest innovation in photo booth technology. This completely integrated kiosk provides event guests with live printing of Instagram and Twitter images that have been photographed with event guests' phones and hashtagged with up to two (2) event hashtags! This new offering allows event professionals the ability to offer two completely different types of photo fun for party events or marketing promotional events thus doubling your revenue per event!

Q: I see you offer photo booths with and without printers. Why is that? Won't I always need a photo printer?
A: Most guests love to walk away from their photo booth session with a print in hand. However, some of our HootBooth® Photo Booth customers already own a printer and don't need to purchase a new one at the time they purchase their new HootBooth® Photo Booth kiosk. Also, if you are looking to purchase only a photo booth with 'social booth' features, which is a photo booth experience where the guest uploads their photo to social media sites like Facebook right after a photo booth session, you will not need to purchase a HootBooth® Photo Booth model that includes a printer. Note that all of our photo booth kiosks include 'social booth' functionality so if you purchase a HootBooth® Photo Booth model that includes a printer you will also have the 'social booth' functionality included in the kiosk.
Q: Do you sell printers and print media?
A: Yes we do! We sell the Shinko/Sinfonia CS2 Dye-Sublimation Printer Model which is the world's smallest and fastest professional photo printer.

Q: What are the expenses incurred during a typical photo booth gig?
A: The cost or printer supplies (ink and paper) will be the only cost incurred. This is because with the integrated touch screen and voice prompts, no attendant is required - your guests can run the photo booth session themselves! Note that the average cost of a 4x6 print with our integrated printer is $.17 cents per print (which includes media and print.) For a 4-hour photo booth rental, 40-100 prints is average, thus the total media expenses for a four 4-hour rental will be at most $17.00 per event.
Q: Do all HootBooth® Photo Booths save the images as digital files?
A: Yes, in addition to printing the image and sending images to social sites, the HootBooth Photo Booth can be set up to save the image as a .jpg - both the individual image as well as the set of images shown in the final print.
