Why start a Photo Booth Rental Business?

We delve into the reasons why someone might want to consider joining one of North America's (USA and Canada) fastest growing industries: Photo Booth Hire / Photo Booth Rental by becoming a "Photo Boother".

It can be a lot of fun

No doubt you've recently been to a wedding, party or corporate event and there in the corner with a long line up of people with eager grins in front of it, was a Photo Booth. From inside comes fits of laughter and the occasional arm or leg appears from behind the curtains as poses are quickly changed in between shots. As guests exit the photo booth the effervescent glow of their joy is shining as bright as the internal lighting of the photo booth itself. If there was a photo booth attendant there it really didn't look like work for them as they were having so much fun as well.

Everyone wants to rent one

In fact you probably haven't just seen one photo booth recently at an event but you have likely been to a few other events and they had one too. Not only just at weddings and birthday parties but night clubs, school proms, product launches, music festivals, bar mitzvahs/bat mitvahs, kids birthday parties and a range of corporate events. Photo booths are in such high demand, they are seem to be at nearly every event you go to.

Photo Booth MemeLooks to be profitable $$$

You start to think "a product this fun and in demand must be easy to make money from". After a quick spot of research (or maybe you have even rented your own photo booth in the past) you see most photo booth rental companies charge between $500 - $900. That surely seems like a good amount of money for what appears to be just a few hours work, so you can already see the money flowing into your bank account. 

Flexible working hours / Be your own boss

Of course photo booths aside having your own business in itself seems like a great idea. You're your own boss, you're in control of all aspects of running the show and naturally you get all the spoils and it would appear the photo booth rental business is full of wonderful spoils! Also the idea of an extra income stream or perhaps getting out of doing the standard Monday to Friday thing appeals to you. What could be better than combining your desire to have your own business with getting into the Photo Booth Rental / Photo Booth Hire industry?

Conclusion / Truth

All of the above can be true but don't fool yourself into thinking becoming a photo booth operator is going to be a walk in the park and the bookings and money is just going to start rolling in. It aint! Like all businesses it requires hard work, dedication, sleepless nights and the ability to hack your way to success by mastering a bunch of things you may have no experience with like Search Engine Optimization, Word Press or even the ins and outs of photography. The other thing is you're not the only one! The photo booth industry across USA and Canada already has something like 15,000 - 20,000 operators so to be successful you're going to need to a good plan and the ability to execute it.
