Why Start a Photo Booth Business?

The most obvious answer to this question is that everyone wants to work in a field that they are passionate about. Maybe you love taking pictures but you never considered the possibility of starting a business — or a photo booth business at that. Starting your own photo booth business gives you the opportunity to do something you love while working with professional equipment that you’ll find at ATA Photobooths. Both our Lumia Pro Photo Booth and our Sapphire Helio Photo Booth make it easy to create an amazing photo booth that guests at every event will love. With ATA Photobooths, you can stop dreaming and start living a life you love.

Step One:

Find the Perfect Booth

The right photobooth makes all the difference when it comes to starting your new photo booth business. At ATA Photobooths, we have everything you need, no matter what you’re looking for. 

We offer both DSLR photo booths as well as iPad photo booths, so you can find what you need no matter your preference. If you want to start with just the photo booth itself and add supplies and accessories later, you can, however, we have complete photo booth packages that include stands, printers, travel cases, and even the tablet or camera you need to get started. Check out all of your options when you shop today!


What’s the Difference?

DSLR Photo Booth

With a DSLR photo booth, your camera fits inside the photo booth to capture amazing, high-quality photos each and every time. If you’re a camera-buff and you enjoy the benefits of click-and-capture photos, a DSLR photo booth is for you.

iPad Photo Booth

A tablet or iPad photo booth works with a photo booth software to capture and share photos. These photo booths make it easy for customers to capture photos on their own and share them across social media, while gathering their information at the same time.


Step Two:

Start Your Business

The best part about starting your own photo booth business? It’s easy! Once you have all of the materials you need, you can prepare your vision and mission for making your photo booth business a success. 

Do you want to focus on weddings or will you work across the board at any event you can find? Whatever the case may be, make sure you are marketing yourself well. Set up a beautiful website and start spreading the word. Set your prices. Search for venues with whom you can partner. Utilize social media to help showcase your photo booth, your prices, and examples of your work. The more effort you put into marketing, especially at the beginning, the more success you will find when starting your new business.

Step Three:

Grow, Grow, Grow

Your photo booth business may be a part-time weekend gig for a little extra cash. It has the potential, however, to be a full-time career with the potential to earn a six-figure income. How much are you looking to make?

With the right prices and exceptional networking, you can take advantage of every opportunity to build your business, including:

  1. Building relationships with your customers
  2. Continuously assessing your business needs and potential
  3. Raising your prices as you build your reputation
  4. Adding a second (or third) photo booth for larger events
  5. Hiring staff for extra support
