How to Start a Successful Photo Booth Rental Business

Once you have decided that you want to do it, the first step in starting a successful photo booth rental business is to decide which booth you want to buy.  Call Soren directly at (503) 230-1181 to talk about different booth options.  Our standard photo booth kit comes with everything you need to operate a portable photo booth business.  With our portable kit you can store it in a garage or closet, you can transport it in most regular cars, and you can set it up and operate it with a single photo booth operator.

We provide the support you need to learn the photo booth rental businesses based on our own rental business in Portland, OR.  We made lots of mistakes and made even more great moves which makes our rental business a success, and we aren’t afraid to share our road map to success.

Register your business name with your secretary of States small business office.  You will need to get a business license as well as learn if you have to charge sales tax on your rentals.  You may want to contact your county and metro-area to see if you need any local licenses.  A local CPA can usually help you with what to do in your local area.

Registering a Domain name is also important.  Most of my rental business is dependant on our website.  Even if a client is referred from another client, the new client almost always contacts us through our web site.  If you don’t know how to make a website, or don’t have one already, we can design and maintain a web site for you.  Call Soren for a run through of our $750 web page package. (503) 230-1181.

Search on Google to see what your local competition is charging and what extra services they provide.  You can learn a lot about the business from seeing what others are doing.  I don’t suggest undercutting everyone on price, it just means you will bring down the cost and value of photo booth rental services in your area.  Running a photo booth business is not rocket science but it does require real work and expertise.  Think of it as a real business and be prepared for marketing costs and taxes you will run into.  Business Liability insurance is another cost I would seriously consider. Many venues that you would be in renting a booth now require that vendors such as photo booth rental companies have a standard business liability plan to protect them.  Plans are generally $500 a year or less and can include damage and theft protection as well.

If you take the steps necessary to start a legitimate business you will be taking your business seriously and making sure you will get off to a good start.  With our booth,  a local CPA, A web page design company and an insurance agent you will be well on your way to building a successful rental company.  Soon you may be back to

Facebook Software: Upload Tutorial

This is a link to a new written tutorial on how to use our instant Facebook Internet gallery software to upload your photo booth strip during an event.  Guests in your booth can see their images just seconds after they receive their prints and can post to Facebook, email and share your companies info on their walls.  If only 10 people share their images per event, you have the potential of over 1000 people seeing your company name on facebook.

As always, feel free to call me with questions.  Soren (503) 230-1181

Photo Booth Software Update- With DSLR Compatibility

Give the new Fortune Photo Booth software update a try at

unzip and install (you may need to uninstall the previous version through the control panel first)

Try it with the Canon T2i, or T3i.

DSLR shooting takes a bit more patience and time to learn than the simple Canon Powershots.  But, the real benefit of the DSLR’s is that the image sizes are much larger and the video previews are of higher quality on the screen.

Feel free to call with questions or help.
