The first commercially successful photo booth rental, similar to the ones we are familiar with, was placed on Broadway in New York City in 1925. Russian immigrant Anatol Josepho, placed it there and for a quarter and in about 10 minutes, you could have 8 printed photos as a memento of your visit to Broadway.
The booth was used by 280,000 people in just the first six months and Josepho established The Photomaton Company to set up photo booths all around the US. With a guarantee of future royalties, Josepho sold the company four years later in 1927, for a whopping $1 million dollars.
Since then, photo booths have grown in popularity, and people are renting photo booths for all types of occasions. Weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, corporate events, Bat and Bar Mitzvahs, and Sweet 16s. If you are looking to rent a photo booth for your event, contact ISH Events.
Photo booths have come a long way since those early automated photographs and developing. Now everything is digitized and placed in a flat screen computer. Along with the smaller computer, comes all the things a computer can do with a photograph. Now you can choose backgrounds, superimpose cartoon faces over your own, add dog ears, or opt for a border. You may also be able to print out a postcard to send saying “Wish you were here,” or fun stickers with your own face on them.
