A Photographer’s Mantra

A Photographer’s Mantra

 

​All photographers have a mantra! I​t ​is​ the only thing that keeps them self motivated and inspired during a busy event where multi tasking needs to be involved, eye​s​​​ ​need to be on the ball and ensuring everything including brain and equipment is fully charged and ready to go!

 

The Photo Team’s Open Photo Booth service believe in chanting the following key words in their heads when the going gets tough and the pressure is on:

 

“Take control of your camera”

All our party photo booth and wedding photo booth photographers​ want to​ take the best shots an​d impress their guests and their clients. The only way to do this is to take control of the camera and its settings.​ All our professional photo booth​ photographers understand that at any event they are the puppeteers and ​can make their puppet (the camera) do anything to wow the crowd and that is exactly what we do at The Open Photo Booth. The decision making on when to take a photo is vital and our photographers have mastered this at all our digital photo booth​ events.

 


​”Love what you do”​

Our photographers love what they do. ​When they recite this, they see and breathe this and any event then feels like a breeze whether it be held at a small or large venue. The ultimate goal is to capture quality photos rather than the quantity and to capture key parts of the events. This is the reason why nothing phases our event photographers as they see each booking as piece of art that they have the honour of photographing.

 

“If at first you don’t succeed then dust yourself off and try again”

It is never about giving up at any point. All our photo booth London and photo booth Kent photographers are fully trained in taking on any challenge and always think outside the box to create beautiful and innovative photos. If they don’t succeed in getting that photo then they try again and nothing is seen as a failure but always a win-win situation.

 

 

So if you are looking to hire a photo booth then do not hesitate to contact The Open Photo Booth for quality images at a competitive price.

Be a Flamingo in a Flock of Pigeons

Be a Flamingo in a Flock of Pigeons

 

There is nothing worse than to be a copycat of any event photographer’s ethics, brand, work and even their content on their website! Why imitate someone and portray the same messages or images but under a different company name? How does this make your company stand out? How can clients differentiate the service you provide Vs what every other company does and what would make clients come back to you again and again. At the Photo Team we believe in standing out from the crowd even if that means providing quirky poses and posting crazy blogs but that is how we have reached over 17.5K hits on Instagram! By grafting and training our photographers for our wedding photo booth and party photo booth (to look better than boring old pigeons!) we can carry on building upon our clientele and are able to attend many more amazing events to utilise all our services.

 

 

What makes The Photo Team so different is that we offer multiple services from Event Photography to our Open Photo Booth and our Events Paparazzi service. We offer competitive pricing but have a high quality output. You will see from competitors that they are not able to offer a multiple service or even able to be at multiple locations on the same day. We cover all types of photography with teams of professionals who are happy to be part of our colony of flamingos as well as walking, talking and breathing innovation. Our team see success in every event they attend and with a positive attitude this helps them make the whole company successful and be at the forefront of all photography especially for our Photo Booth London and Photo Booth Kent service.

 

 

So remember we all have the ability to be more than the people that surround us and we can all achieve success even when surrounded by mediocrity. Its all about Positive Mental Attitude!

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

 

We At the Photo team absolutely love this saying and this is what drives our whole team forward. It makes the point that you can take any sort of negative experience and turn it into something useful. Whether it be a photographer working for a challenging client or even our admin team facing a slightly difficult day we all know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. What ever is thrown at us (including lemons!) then we all need to see it as a lesson that we should learn from and that there is a reason why it has been thrown at us. We also learn new skills when we experience these moments which we never forget. Nothing is too difficult to solve and that is why all our event photographers are able to deal with any curve balls at any given event, whether it be a last minute change by the client or even a slight technical issue, we can solve it! The reason why we stay positive is because we hire experts in their fields and they all have a vast amount of knowledge in dealing with technical queries to dealing with softer skills such as building rapport with their clients and guests. Every experience is seen as a useful experience.

 

 

Nothing is too much trouble for our wedding photo booth and party photo booth as it comes with a fully equipped event photographer. Taking photos for the digital photo booth is like looking after a baby that they want to nurture and love until the photos are finally delivered to the client. We are perfectionists and are not satisfied till we get the thumbs up from our clients. This is why you will see that all the images that we produce for our professional photo booth excel with class and style.

 

 

So we love lemons! It brings out the best in us, makes us more determined and proves to us that we can do anything we set our minds to! Never give up!

 

Love, The Open Photo Booth Team

 

i-catching phot-Os

 i-catching phot-Os

 

When clients seek for a photographer whether it be a professional photo booth, a wedding photo booth or party photo booth they seek photo booths that can produce “i-catching” images and this means photos that are immediately appealing or noticeable and most of all striking.

 

At The Photo Team we really work to make our content more visually appealing and to make a normal photo look very modern, meaningful and mind blowing.​ We want our photos to stick out like a sore thumb and be the forefront of observer’s minds again and again. Our very own photographers can do this by using our latest digital photo booth.

 

Here are examples from The Photo Team on some of the eye catching photos of this year that have been taken by our photographers…

 

Use layouts that are eye grabbing. Don’t just lay objects out in a uniformed style but mix it up, inject some depth to the colour of your photo and make it look different to the norm.

 

 

​Always aim for simplicity. Do not try to capture too much in one shot as the meaning will be lost as well as the observer not knowing what to focus on. Make a photo stand out so that the message you are trying to deliver through a photo is identified by anyone admiring it.

 

 

At The Photo Team we like to make our photos full of contrast, variation and we play with the light to get a unique approach. All our photography work is done with care and attention and images are exaggerated through tricks of the light which has been mastered over time.

 

 

We can guarantee to put a spark in any photo that is captured and enhance features, backgrounds and focal points to ensure that not all photos are the same, they all sing a different song but all in all capture a harmonised approach.

…And the winner is…

…And the winner is…

 

We ran a photography competition for our own Photo Team photographers. We asked three of our most busiest photographers of the week of our competition to go to any of their events and choose their best corporate photography, conference photography photo or even capture a shot at any event they have been booked for. The aim was for them to select their favourite snap and send to the head office so we could submit this onto our Instagram page and see how many likes they could get from the public in a duration of four weeks. We had a great response from our followers and it was a very close call at the beginning but over the weeks we could evidently see what was capturing the public’s eyes.

 

Well done to our photographers and here are the submissions…

 

 

 

 

… And the winner is Anna. Anna has been with us for a short space of time but she was lucky enough to have captured the first photo from a Hindu pre-wedding ceremony called “Pithi”. Anna captured a beautiful photo of a young bride-to-be two days before her wedding day. The bride was being covered by a paste made out of chickpea flour, turmeric, rose water and other ingredients. Since ancient’s times, the Pithi ceremony is celebrated in both the bride and bride groom’s home separately. This entails rubbing a paste on the bride and bride groom’s face, hands and legs. Family members and friends have fun getting the bride and groom completely covered in the paste. This paste is meant to brighten and even the skin tone, so that the couple may have a glow on the wedding day! As you can tell our bride found the whole experience really enjoyable and funny!

 

We at The Photo Team like to keep our photographers on their toes and ensure we all work together as a team, so running competitions or even having a thank you dinner to appreciate their work keeps the teams morale up and ensures to keep our company as successful as it is!

 

So contact us today for our professional photography service including our open photo booth service with our digital photo booth and see what memories we can create for you!

Payal & Danny’s Wedding – 1 July 2017

Payal & Danny’s Wedding – 1 July 2017

 

We were privileged to be invited to the wedding reception of Payal and Danny and provide them with our famous Open Photo Booth. The wedding took place on the grounds of The Great Lodge in Braintree Essex. Originally known as Great Park, the estate was an enclosed medieval deer park, owned by the crown until 1550. It was ‘emparked’ with a paling fence in order to retain a herd of fallow deer to provide hunting and venison for the Lord ’s Table. The Photo Team were invited to the reception party at the rustic and beautiful Anne of Cleves Barn. The barn was built when the estate was owned by Anne of Cleves following the annulment of her marriage to King Henry VIII and the inside of the venue had a feel of what the building may have looked like back in the 16th century. The venue was decorated with wild flowers and candles and the guests were all wearing their best attire with full smiles.

 

We certainly made an impact as all 180 guests were all excited and intrigued to understand how the booth worked as it wasn’t a typical closed photo booth. Our photographer was on hand with his magnificent prop box and large guest book to explain how the booth worked. Each guest was able to pick a prop and pose in a small group or up to a mahoosive group of 15 and pose to their delight. The photographer was able to jeer them on and get them all in the party spirit. Two photos were taken per group, the photo was then printed as a 6×4 size with two photos on each print and a copy was handed to the guests as well as one for the guest book. Many loving messages were written to the bride and groom and it was clear to see how much they enjoyed the reception with the highlight of our digital photo booth. At one point there were more people queuing for the booth than on the dance floor!

 

Here are some photos which are evident of why the professional photo booth is such a hit at all the events that we attend….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So don’t miss out and experience our photo booth London and photo booth Kent today. You can book us for a Wedding photo booth or even a party photo booth. Its your call entirely!

Roc-a-Photo

Roc-a-Photo

 

Roc-ing a photo is really crucial. People are of different face structures and body sizes so it is important to understand how to position people to get the best out of them but even so for them to know how to pose themselves so they can bring out the best in any of their photos.

Here are some quick easy to follow steps for the professional photo booth, wedding photo booth and party photo booth team on how to pose:

 

Understand your best side

A study in 2012 found that people’s left sides were far better than their right side. Our event photographers will take several photos for you to understand which side emphasises your features more.

 

 

Convey positive body language

When getting into our digital photo booth you need to have fun, feel positive and let your body relax. A tense photo will just not do your photo any justice. Our props will help put you at ease and bring a smile to your face so simply just go with the flow and let our professional photographers produce a fantastic print for you.

 

 

Action Shot

Should you want a good action shot then its good to hold something to make the picture look crazy, fun and exciting. We have many props to help you get into the swing of things such as our huge boxing gloves!

 

 

It is The Photo Team’s job as the event photographer London to make our subjects look their best and therefore we will be able to build rapport with you, put you at ease and guide you to ensure you receive the best photos for you and your guests. Therefore let us help you roc-a-photo and bring out the best images. For your nearest photo booth, contact photo booth London or photo booth Kent today.

Snappers R Us

Snappers R Us

 

Being a photographer is not an easy job as some people may think. It is not just about clicking away. It is about investing in time, skills, knowledge and the tools. Being passionate about photography means that your job can be a therapeutic hobby too and you will want to exceed your own expectations time and time again.

 

Our photographers at The Photo Team are conscientious, motivated and breathe photography 24-7. This is why they are such an asset to the team:

 

They notice the details

Once you are passionate about something then you will want to capture moments that will tell a story to the person viewing them. The smallest detail can change the photo whether it be capturing the right light, composition or a raw emotion. All our photographers do just that and this is evident from the professional photo booth, wedding photo booth, and party photo booth events.

 

 

Being in the moment

Providing a digital photo booth means the photographer will give the clients their full attention to the job itself and capture as many guests as possible.

 

Being creative

Our photo booth London service is one of a kind and our photographers will capture the best keepsakes ever! They do not need any guidance and are able to be very creative in the shots that are captured to create unique images.

 

 

Always up for a challenge

Nothing is too much for our photographers. They will always be learning something new and posing the guests in fun ways.

 

Learn more about themselves

Our photographers share their strengths with the rest of the team whether it be how they captured a shot, how to use a piece of equipment or what they have learnt along the way. It is all about sharing the love and upskilling each other. Therefore collectively we have a strong team.

 

 

So hire a photo booth to experience superior quality photography by The Photo Team.
