General Questions

How does your photo booth work?

The photo booth is fully automated and the process from start to finish is straightforward and very fast:

  • Step 1: Guests have the option of selecting any of the party props to spice up their photo shoot.
  • Step 2: Guests position themselves in front of the photo booth and press "Start" on the touch screen to begin the fun.
  • Step 3: Strike a pose and get snapped in 1-4 shots (depending on which layout you choose for your event).
  • Step 4: Wait approximately 7 seconds and collect two copies of the photo. Guests keep one as a memento and your photo booth host will collate the second print with all the photos for you and assist guests with your photo
    album if you have decided to have one.
  • Repeat steps 1-4. Too easy!

Bear Booth Set Up

Can you set up at any venue?

Almost any venue is capable of accommodating Bear Booth. The photo booth’s stackable design allows us to transport it up or down a flight of stairs if they are wide enough. An elevator is necessary if there is more than one floor to access the venue.

What are the dimensions of the the photo booth and what are the requirements for set up?

The dimensions of the photo booth is 55cm wide x 42cm deep so we require at least 2.5 square metres of flat surfaced floor space and access to an electrical outlet of 240v within 5 metres. We will need a little more space if you choose to have a table for props and/or photo album.

Is it possible to have the photo booth outside?

Our photo booth can be setup outdoors as long as it’s undercover and safe from the elements. Keep in mind we require access to a power supply within 5 meters.

What’s the deal with set up time?

The time required to setup the photo booth prior to the allocated session starting time and pack up after your session concludes is approximately 1 hour. Don’t worry, this time is not included in your session time.

An “Idle time” fee will be charged at $50 per hour. Idle time is a delay between set up and the session starting and the end of your session and pack up. For example if you wanted the photo booth to be set up at 6pm but didn't want it open until 7pm the timing would include one hour of idle time.


The Photos

What is the picture quality of the prints?

Bear Booth prides itself on employing superior technology. We use a digital SLR and quality optics along with professional lighting and a first class dye sublimation printer which results in instant, touch-dry, waterproof, sharp vibrant photos.

What size are the photos?

Bear Booth offers a choice between two different photo sizes. There are 2 x 6 inch traditional size photo strips and larger 4 x 6 inch photos. You can choose from 7 different layouts, 5 of which you can include your own branding or message. Download Bear Booth's photo layouts and check them out!

Can you customise the photos?

Sure can! There is space on the photo layout for custom branding. You can provide us your own logo or artwork to use in the photo layout or our professional graphic designer can create a unique design to suit your event’s theme and colour palette.

Do you provide a backdrop?

We provide an optional backdrop as part of our packages. View our selection of backdrops here. If you’re a crafty DIY kind of person or hiring a stylist you are most welcome to create your own backdrop as long as it doesn’t pose a safety risk to your guests or the photo booth - utilising a wall is a good idea. Please talk to us prior to your event. Bear in mind your party itself, creates a great background for your photos and the photo booth becomes more interactive sans backdrop!


Bookings & Payment

How much does it cost?

Hiring Bear Booth varies in cost depending on the session time. If you’re expecting 100 guests it works out to be about $7.50-$10 per head. For the price of a beer we reckon that’s a top deal considering Bear Booth has your photography, party favours AND entertainment covered for your function.
