Boothnation The extraordinary photo booth company by Seamus Ryan
Boothnation was created by award winning portrait photographer Seamus Ryan. Already well known internationally for his advertising and editorial work, Seamus embarked on a unique series of portraits involving the general public in 2006.
These projects, collectively known as Sunday Shoots, take place each Sunday in his studio (based in busy Columbia Road Flower Market, in London's East End) and attempt to reveal different aspects of personality, identity and spirit while at the same time exploring the possibilities of portrait photography. To see all of the Sunday Shoot projects go to www.sundayshoots.com
The photobooth idea came from these public projects and has proved hugely popular in all its adaptations. There is something about the informal nature of the photobooth that delights everyone. The resulting images are testimony to this, unlike posed event photography your guests aren't pretending to have fun for the camera, the camera is the fun!
The Boothnation booth is no ordinary photobooth. It is fully kitted out with professional lighting, a high end digital camera and the ability to instantly view your images, as they are taken. The booth can also be completely customised to your event. Please see booth hire for more information.
LOOK WHO IT IS!
National treasure Alan Carr is a man of many faces – pouty, endearing, silly, vulnerable, cheeky, sweet etc - all used to great comedic effect. So when Marie Claire needed a suitably interesting photo spread to accompany their November Janet Street-Porter interview, they enlisted Boothnation to the cause.
As endearing in person as he is on the telly, Alan had us in fits of laughter as he posed and preened in the booth. Being such a ball of energy, the booth was the perfect capsule to contain and capture him in action. Over 100 shots and he was still pulling new expressions out of the bag!
