Christmas is all about filling up your heart with hope, positivity and nostalgia. It is about wanting to give to the people who are in need and bring happiness to everyone surrounding you.

They can attend client events during the Christmas period and provide an exceptional and seamless event photography London service especially for their Open Photo Booths service of over 300 guests. This service entails a digital photo booth photographer attending any event for free, providing a backdrop, our event photographers capturing unique poses in a fun and engaging manner, the photo printed on high quality paper and mounted in a beautiful frame and guests then pay for the finished product. It is perfect for a Christmas present and most importantly is cherished for many years. It is a unique service to provide any large event as it definitely brings a good feeling, is the talk of the event and proves to bring a sentimental emotion to everyone involved. The Open Photo Booths service can also be used for Corporate Christmas events and be offered as a pre-paid package from £349, so you can actually provide the 6×4 prints as a free gift to your guests.

If a job is worth doing, its worth doing well

If a job is worth doing, its worth doing well

 

Now are have all heard of many people complaining about being overworked, undervalued and underpaid however we rarely talk about people blowing their own trumpets and thinking they are worth more than they deliver. Surprisingly there are more of the latter and they like to deliver a product or service in half the time, with little effort or thought and try and convince their clients that what they have delivered is the best.

 

Our professional photo booth photographers know not to take any short cuts as this will ultimately lead to serous repercussions in the long run. It is all about producing top quality work at any photo booth booking and ensuring that the final work that is delivered is worth being paid a fee of someone delivering high quality output. If it isn’t then no digital photo booth photographer can expect to be paid any more than what is produced either because some photos could not be used even after editing or simply because a repetition of the same problem keeps happening which can lead to complaints and unhappy customers.

 

 

Ask any wedding photo booth photographer and party photo booth photographer, your work’s true worth is visible with the naked eye and you want your clients to be more than satisfied with their photos.

 

Any photography such as photo booth London photography or photo booth Kent photography should always equal high standards and taken by a fully committed and passionate photo booth photographer. You can not call yourself a professional photographer if you lack the passion and dedication.

 

 

Our event photographers always over deliver with any event photography and that is why we are one of the top leading professional photography agencies.

Make your colours sing

Make your colours sing

 

Colours are so important in any type of photography as it is universal, it can help tell a story and bring our imaginations alive. Colour is what brings a photo to the forefront so we can imagine what it was like at the time it was taken, the smell and the ambience. It can also bring up emotions to a particular time and be a reminder of another key experience of our lives which in turn can generate a thought or a conversation. The power of colour is underestimated by many but mainly only appreciated by event photographers such as professional photo booth photographers. It is valued by our digital photo booth photographers as this is what gives their photos the unique selling point and what makes their quality of photos stand out amongst the other competitors.Our photo booth photographers appreciate the impact that richness can have in a picture, hence the reason why they know how to work with tricks of light and understand their camera settings so they can take photos from a good base with the right ISO. Photos that start off with the right foundation can infuse many colours and shades which in turn can help compose the perfect picture bringing out the true beauty of a person, object or setting.

 

At The Open Photo Booths, our wedding photo booth photography and party photo booth photography is what sets us on par with the most long standing and experienced photography companies out there. The difference with The Photo Team is that we have trained our photographers by the founder of the company to understand the essence of what makes our photos different and what makes the clients want to come back for more.

 

 

Here are some quick tips from The Open Photo Booths London and photo booth Kent photographers on taking photos in colour:

 

Don’t over filter the final photo. This can attract new shades that may fail to enhance the photo and instead make it look tired and overdrawn. If a photo taken first hand doesn’t need any extra help then leave it alone and let its natural beauty come through.

 

Our nearest photo booth event photographers understand their camera settings so that they do not take over exposed photos and understand that adjustments need to be made based on the light changing in different environments. Try it and see what a difference it will make.

 

 

Take photos that you know are slightly unique and seen as a new experience for the client with the richness of the colours enhancing the photos even more.

 

Remember to make your colours sing!

The importance of celebrating success

The importance of celebrating success

 

When we are too busy with our own business sometimes we can forget to celebrate our successes whether it be small or large. It is important to celebrate the wins to keep you and your wedding photo booth photographer and party photo booth photographer motivated and to remind yourself that the hard work you do put in does pay off. Ensure to have goals and break this down to monthly achievements and if you can’t always meet them then don’t fret, never let failure get to your heart and keep self-motivating yourself to change your mindset. The Photo Team’s Open Photo Booth service has been fortunate enough to largely achieve its successes through providing a unique photo booth events photography experience. Remember celebrating doesn’t mean you are boasting, it all depends how you celebrate it. The Open Photo Booths team want to share our means of celebrating:

 

Communicating with our followers on social media

Sharing photos, blogs and statistics on Facebook and Instagram is a great way to show our fans how much we appreciate them and also for them to understand how much we are growing as a business. We upload photos on a regular basis taken by our professional photo booth photographers along with our blogs of the week.

 

 

Socialising with our team members

The founder of The Photo Team appreciates his team’s efforts and hard work which contributes to The Open Photo Booths team receiving more repetitive or new business. To acknowledge this a small dinner or after work drinks with our event photographers is always in order and a great opportunity to converse about past jobs, new technology in the market and what is hot in the photography world. All this helps create a cultivated mind and the more positivity around a table, the more your creativity juices will keep flowing to keep you inspired.

 

 

Taking a break

Sometimes the most simplest things in life are forgotten and that is to eat and sleep well! Hard work is essential but so is looking after yourself. Give yourself a break from it all to recharge your batteries and get those happy chemicals going. We encourage our digital photo booth photographers to do just this to get them ready for their busy weeks of photo booth Kent photography and photo booth London photography bookings.

 

The Open Photo Booths team always remind their event photographers that all roads to success have to go past hard work boulevard at some point. Remember to remain humble and authentic when you get there!

Style is saying who you are without having to speak

Style is saying who you are without having to speak

 

Unfortunately jealousy does exist in photography such as professional photo booth photography. Like any other profession out there, there will always be people who will be green with envy of what another company or person has achieved and will try and pinch ideas and imitate what you have whether it be through copying the brand, website or wording from marketing materials.

 

Our digital photo booth photographers see this as flattery and are not hung up on people trying to copy The Open Photo Booths poses or style. We, At the Photo Team believe we have mastered what makes us unique and that is being able to provide a number of photography services through our Open Photo Booths, Events Paparazzi, Professional photography and even our newest addition SelfiePartyPrints. What our competitors can’t achieve is our technique in being able to attract new and existing clients which then leads to more bookings for party photo booth photography and wedding photo booth photography with prestigious clients at high end venues.

 

 

A lot of hard work and hours have been put behind the scenes by the founder and lead professional photographer as he understands what makes client’s tick and come back to us time and time again to enquire about photo booth photographers. Daily bookings and even last minute requests is what keeps The Open Photo Booths busy with photo booth London and photo booth Kent photographers being booked from our hub of specialists. We don’t need to shout from the roof tops of all that we have achieved but what we do know is how to market our services silently, effectively and humbly plus word of mouth from existing clients keeps us in business. Our photos and service speaks for itself and hence why some of our photographers are asked for by name. We know we offer something unique and move with the times so that we can attract an array of clients for any type of event. If you don’t break a sweat then your business will never succeed.

 

We at The Open Photo Booths are observant about other companies that offer photo booth photography but we work at our pace, our client’s needs and how we can provide something unique to the market place. So a bit of advice from us to other photography companies is to make your business about you and don’t worry what everyone else is doing around you. There are many cheap photo booth photographers out there but there is space for everyone to make a living. So don’t be envious but embrace the beauty of photography provided by others.

There is power in self-sacrifice

There is power in self-sacrifice

 

Our founder was always a keen photographer and from a young age was drawn and fascinated to photos. He was handed a camera from his father who too shared the same passion as him and growing up he was exposed to an array of photos from family portraits to days out. These were neatly compiled into albums for him to cherish for years to come.

 

Our founder was wise above his years from a very young age. As a young boy he studied and observed people and technology, questioned when unsure and was always fascinated with what made the world go round. He was taught to be independent which subsequently ensured he always had a back up plan and ideas on how to succeed in life. Growing up he was able to cleverly transfer all his skills to any given task and also learn new tasks, if he didn’t know he would find out how to do it.

 

From an adolescent to his mid 20s he worked with people and was able to communicate effectively and gently coerce people into his thinking by presenting facts and always showing the right way as opposed to the wrong. He was a “people person” and anyone that was fortunate enough to be in his vicinity were able to remember him always as the one that “helped”, the one who had the answers and the one who never said “no” if someone needed a lending hand. He guided and trained people but also provided them with home truths to put people on the right track and to better themselves.

 

Although he didn’t start off as a professional wedding photo booth photographer he fell into a career where he would be able to transfer his skills to his new found love of events photography as well as digital photo booth photography.

 

 

He carefully assessed his surroundings, the competition and he didn’t believe in “no action”. To be the best and to succeed he learnt, used his known resources, researched and invested in the right equipment. When he finally set up The Photo Team he was able to utilise his acquired skills and able to hire the best party photo booth photographers.

 

The founder of The Photo Team is conscientious, intelligent and most of all always looking outside the box and this means being able to assess what can make The Photo Team stand out from other photography companies that may offer the best photo booth Kent and photo booth London photographers.

 

He looks after his staff and can sift out the weak from the core strength of his team. This has helped him where he is now and ensures his company have a strong players of photo booth photographers.

 

The founder’s self sacrifice is what has built a strong body of key event photographers. They too work hard as they are able to see how much is invested in them so they want to give something back to the company by delivering the best client service and exemplary quality photos.

 

As his team members we believe our founder is the art to our story and has shaped our careers. We are all fortunate to be part of The Photo Team’s Open Photo Booths’ journey.

From all at The Open Photo Booths Team

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it

 

In 2009, The Photo team was born and the founder had a vision to follow his passion in photography and take photos at any event for free just to get his foot in the door and enter the photography world. No task was too much for him and he didn’t know whether any booking would make him money but he was happy to give up his time for his new found love in event photography including professional photo booth photography. As the bookings started coming through, his hard efforts were evident to see which then transpired to paid bookings. His natural flair in communication and competitive spirit came to his advantage when he tapped on doors to find new business and he wasn’t afraid to be persistent and call repeatedly for someone to give him an opportunity. He used his initiative and found a lead that would eventually bring him to openings that would change the next 8 years of his life. With the main emphasis on The Photo Team he was able to fill up the diary but he wanted to tap into a market which had not been seen at any other event. Intellect helps to cultivate and spark creativity and this is how The Open Photo Booths and Events Paparazzi service were born shortly after. Through a few trials and errors the services including the party photo booth and wedding photo booth were seen as a success at weddings, corporate events and parties. The founder was then keen to get as many event and photo booth photographers to cover any given event around London and Kent. With many bookings coming through it was evident for recruitment to be in action and implemented. To be a natural born leader you have to be able to command a room and inspire a team to perform at their best. The founder of The Photo Team is just that as he is able to attract, recruit and retain talent in digital photo booth photography. He manages to hire the best event photographers based on the talents and personality which can echo his morales, the Company’s ethos and who share the same passion as he does. He also knew using his initiative at all times was important in business as it continually pushes his photo booth Kent and photo booth London photographers to learn more, and perform better. He didn’t know whether the company would become a success and the key was that he wasn’t afraid to take risks to advance the business and improve revenues.

 

In 8 years he now has 18.7K followers on Instagram, over 11K followers on Facebook, written over 120 blogs over three sites, interviewed 504 photographers, re-vamped The Photo Team website three times, founded three more services including the SelfiePartyPrints and hired a solid team of event photographers. He has also kept up with the competitive market and ensured he is loved by his team and clients by being an effective communicator to ensure the highest levels of efficiency. He has shown that he is reliable, has the business acumen to price competitively and has the likeability factor which shows from the number of applicants who email him on a daily basis to be part of his successful team.

 

 

The Photo Team are now one of the leading professional photography agencies in London, with a team of highly trained, experienced and motivated professional photographers who work for a number of prestigious clients across the country delivering amazing pictures for corporate and conference events as well as expanding to Open Photo Booths, Events Paparazzi and SelfiePartyPrints.

 

It just shows that when you follow your passion with a lot of hard work and perseverance, it can really pay off and make your dreams come true when dedicating yourself to be an event photographer.

 

So from behalf of us all at The Photo Team, we would like to thank our hardworking and inspirational boss who strives to keep him and his team at the top always!

A good half of the art of living is resilience

A good half of the art of living is resilience

 

Like with any profession you need to have resilience in order to survive and be the best in what you do. The Photo Team believe that the three elements of resilience are, to recover well from setbacks, to adapt well to change and to be able to keep going. Read further to understand what it means for our photographers:

 

Recover well from setbacks

Everyone has faced some set back in their profession and it can be hard to recover especially when it is the first time in their career. Facing the unknown or a curve ball in early stages of any profession can really deter junior event photographers. This is why we at The Photo Team train our new professional photo booth photographers and we don’t just throw them in the deep end immediately but we let them shadow our most longstanding digital photo booth photographers. Our new recruits learn from them first hand on how they will deal with certain situations and understand the do’s and dont’s at any event. They learn to enhance their knowledge from our party photo booth photographers who understand their qualms.

 

To adapt well to change

All photographers face similar challenges from the timetable changing, or maybe a slight set back on their equipment. The key thing is to change your mind set and religiously recite in your head that you can overcome any challenge and be flexible. Be prepared for set backs such as having extra equipment with you on the day, be prepared for last minute changes and pre-empt what that could be so you are already predicting how to deal with certain last minute alterations. Our photographers have been able to become stronger and confident over time due to learning from any hitch which in turn has made them confident in their abilities.

 

 

To be able to keep going

For over half a decade we have educated and taught our new hires the art of overcoming obstacles, how to persevere when problems arise and to bounce back from adversity. When something knocks our event photographers off their feet they have become resilient to understand how to resolve any matter quickly and still provide a service with a smile. This is why we are respected as one of the top photography agencies in London due to outstanding wedding photo booth photography.

 

Nothing can demoralise or phase our resilient photo booth Kent photographers and photo booth London photographers as they are able to manage their emotions, converse effectively to deliver the outcome and are confident in their ability to deliver any named task.

 

So to be part of a team of a best bunch of photo booth photographers then contact us today.

Getting smart with photography

Getting smart with photography

 

The only way any photographer can get ahead of the competitive photography industry is to eliminate any bad habits which can save money and time. The Photo Team are masters of Event photography as well as professional photo booth and digital photo booth photography and have experienced the peaks and troughs of setting up a business but 8 years on and with full determination and persistence they have understood how to retain all their clients and provide a number of exemplary services such as the Open Photo Booths, Events Paparazzi, Professional Photography and SelfiePartyPrints.

 

So here are some do’s and dont’s to help new photographers along the way:

 

Do not think that being a wedding photo booth photographer means to take thousands of photos at any given event. It means knowing when to take the photo at the right time. It is a waste of time trying to capture every single step a subject makes in order to get the one right shot. Listen, watch and think of what shot the client is most likely to appreciate. This way you will spend more time being aware of your surroundings rather than your eye constantly behind a camera. Taking less photos but of high quality means less editing afterwards!

 

We have a number of party photo booth photographers who are busy week in and week out, attending top events throughout London and Kent. Over time and with experience they have understood that thinking ahead is crucial, know the timetable of the day in advance and understand your camera so that the ISO settings are just right for the next shot. Failure to get the settings right will mean poor quality of photos and could jeopardise any future bookings.

 

 

Our photo booth London photographers and photo booth Kent photographers have all understood why it is important to invest in a good camera in order to produce fantastic shots but don’t always assume quality is equal to the price. Focus less on the price tag, and more on whether or not a given item is right for you, especially when buying a camera. Does it fit your current skill level? Are you familiar with all of the functions and tools it comes with?

 

So communicate with other photographers, learn from the best and find something that suits you in order to understand what type of equipment and type of photography resembles you. All our photo booth photographers at The Photo Team have and so can you.
