Photo Booth Charity shoot for Compassionate Eye Foundation -helping to make a difference in the world.

When Fiona Watson Productions  –   a photographic producer, casting agent, stylist and art director that works closely with the Compassionate Eye Foundation –  asked if Bubble Booths would be prepared to help her on a shoot for The Compassionate Eye Foundation  we jumped at the chance. The Compassionate Eye Foundation is a creative community wanting to make a difference by donating their creative talents producing images that sell through Getty Images and using the proceeds to help people in Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Kenya, Cambodia, Zambia, and South Africa and we very much admire what they do.

Fiona, an experienced art director, thought that a photo booth-themed shoot would be a very topical idea. She had already used our photo booth for a Christmas promotion for Street Cast Models in 2011,  so she knew the fun you could have in a photo booth.  Having set the booth up to be amazing quality with professional cameras, professional printers and superior studio flash lighting we knew that the image quality would easily pass the very strict quality control of Getty Images imaging department.

The idea of the day’s shoot with Fiona was to produce as many images as we could along selected themes, get these pictures into the Getty Images photo library so that they could make loads of money for the Compassionate Eye charity helping people around the world. With this important cause, we had a mission to be as efficient and productive as possible.

Thanks to lots of pre-shoot organisation, the day went without a hitch, Fiona’s models turned up promptly,  from mums with new-born babies to a bride and groom dressed in full wedding gown and suit. Professional props, wardrobe and full make-up was provided throughout the day, so everyone looked great. The Bubble Booths easy-to-use photo booth came into its own as a stream of models passed through it. The good news is that the Compassionate Eye Foundation shoot with Bubble Booths had over 100 images accepted by Getty Images from the photo booth shoot!  This is great news and we’re really excited to see how much money these photo booth images will generate for  Compassionate Eye Foundation’s good causes around the world.

Bubble Booths photo booth hire is available to hire for weddings, birthdays, parties, Christmas socials, work parties, anniversaries, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, and school balls.

The Fun of Bubble Booths Photo Booth Hire Prints

In these days of digital media, what’s so often missing is a good-old fashioned photographic print – there in your hand, to be stuck on a noticeboard, sent to family and friends or – for the organised among us – put neatly in an album. Nowadays the images we take on digital cameras or mobile phones all too often stay on the screen, very rarely printed out, sometimes sent as email jpegs which stay in the in-box rather than being transformed into good quality prints.

The response we get to Bubble Booths photo booth hire prints when people see them is; “Wow, what fantastic quality prints!” We love hearing that as behind-the-scenes we’ve gone to a lot of trouble to ensure that our booths print out high quality prints. As we explain to our clients, the great thing about having a Bubble Booths entertainment photo booth at your special event – whether it’s a wedding,  a birthday party or an anniversary celebration – is that everyone who uses the booth gets to go away with a lovely photographic print, a wonderful souvenir of that special occasion.

At a party hire in High Barnet in north London the other day, we saw what fun they are for families. Two of the kids at the party were into it immediately, diving into the prop box, then strutting their stuff in the booth and coming up with great prints. Their Dad saw the prints and immediately said “We don’t have a picture of all of us anywhere – let’s do a family photo!”  So there they were, a whole family having a laugh as they took photos of themselves in the booth. They left with a handful of great prints, absolutely thrilled with those pictures of themselves and their children having a great time together.
