Or is it simply to provide a fun attraction for visitors at one of your company events? Knowing who your target audience is will help you narrow down what kind of equipment that you should be looking for.

All of these attributes will help you deliver a simple yet effective service for taking photographs. There is also the possibility to add certain functions or customise your basic purchase with branded skins for the booth, props, seating, a branded curtain and more. You can obtain these additional features by discussing your needs with the manufacturer or supplier.
More top of the range features that are available in the premium portable photo booth market include facial recognition software, flip book software, an immersive green screen, green screen recorded video, InstaNet software for sharing photos via Instagram, a variety of customisation options and even the innovative Marryoke hardware and software.
These more advanced devices are ideal for businesses that are looking to provide a high quality portable photo booth rental service to customers in their area, or instead intend to use one or all of the above listed features to promote their brand at trade shows, events or at their store or outlet.
The features that a portable photo booth has are not the only things that you should be looking out for when you decide to invest your budget in this kind of equipment, however. In addition to having all the hardware, software and customisation options that you require, it is important to check that you receive adequate training and support when it comes to using the booth.
Some of the most basic packages out there will not include any formal training, but will supply a series of training videos which can help anyone – even those without any IT experience – make sense of the equipment and use it optimally. On the other hand, some of the more premium packages can provide thorough, on-site training by an expert.
Some companies selling these devices will also provide 12 months of ongoing technical support along with free upgrades and software updates as and when they become available. This may be of a great advantage to those that need an extra level of technical assistance with their new equipment.

In all cases, make sure that the device has all the features you want, as well as adequate training and support to get you up and running in your new venture.
