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.

Photo Booth Hire London at St Paul’s Cathedral for Harbour and Jones’ Extravaganza

Bubble Booths photo booth hire was thrilled to be part of innovative caterers Harbour & Jones’ Extravaganza event, a seasonal celebration for all their clients. The venue for this very special party was the crypts at St Paul’s Cathedral, which turned out to be a wonderfully atmospheric space in which to hold an event like this on a grand scale. The theme was Victorian so the prop box offering, specially put together for the event, for our photo entertainment booth included Victorian masks, feather boas, top hats, bonnets and monocles.

Harbour and Jones are known for their eye for detail and this event was no exception. As guests arrived at the South Door they were welcomed by one of Harbour & Jones management team, directed towards the cloak room and reception desk, then guided downstairs to the vaulted crypts where the event was based. Those who wanted to fully appreciate the chance to look around the magnificent interior of St Paul’s Cathedral and enjoy the atmosphere were able to take short guided tours.

Those heading downstairs into the crypts were greeted by a charming member of the Harbour and Jones team stationed by Wellington’s tomb and pointed in the right direction, past the tomb of national nautical hero Nelson into the main crypt area where the festivities began! Harbour and Jones, noted for the quality of their food, had really gone to town on the catering – beautifully-decorated tables along the length of the space were groaning with food, from oysters and seafood to British farmhouse cheeses, with hog roast rolls going down very well indeed. An eye-catching centrepiece was a huge ice sculpture of St Paul’s Cathedral, which attracted much appreciative comment. Next to this, arranged on crushed ice, were dainty glass bowls filled with elegant portions of different sweet foams – mango, passion fruit and chocolate – sprinkled with toppings such as raspberry ‘caviar’ to add texture.

Round the corner from the food was the entertainment area, which is where we were with Bubble Booths, complete with our array of Victorian props for people to choose from. As ever, Bubble Booths proved to be a popular attraction, with people queuing up to have their photos taken. Our friendly and helpful booth attendants, smartly turned out in black suits, fitted in a treat and did a great job of suggesting which props to choose, from smart top hats to intriguing masks. People were thrilled with the quality of the prints, with several of the guests returning again and again to have yet another go, with another friend or colleague or wearing different props. It was really heart-warming having the guests thank us and to hear comments like “This is such fun” and “Your booth looks great – so tasteful”. Lots of people talked about booking Bubble Booths for their own events, which is always music to our ears. At the end of the night, the Harbour and Jones team, from chefs and waiters to senior management couldn’t resist having a go in the Bubble Booths photo entertainment booth too. They’d seen how much fun their guests had had using the booth and leaped at the chance to prop up and have their photos taken, which just shows the appeal. We were thrilled with the whole event and very chuffed to have been asked to take part in such a memorable extravaganza at St Paul’s Cathedral.
