Teenagers hang out in them, Courting couples snuggle up in them, Women have stripped off in them, Fred Astaire has danced in one, Andy Warhol turned them into a business, even the photos the booth produces have become collective items for some!

A gentleman by the name of Anatol (Josephewitz) Josepho, invented the first automated machine back in 1925 for the sum of around $11,000, about $145,000 today, a significant investment at that time. Upon first opening his studio in Broadway, it's suggested that, up to 7,500 people a day queued to have their photo taken for the princely sum of.25c, including many notable dignitaries of the time. Needless to say Anatol very quickly became a millionaire with his automated device.

What's staggering is the then difference in how this industry developed in America versus Western Europe! In the UK for example, it is estimated that there are significantly more static photo booths than the whole of the United States, similarly France, largely because of the difference in perception. Long established in the UK and continental Europe as a preferred means of obtaining a passport or ID photo, in contrast to the States where they retained an element of pure entertainment value. PhotoMe in the UK is indeed recognised as the largest photo booth operator in the world.

So what is a photo booth?

This is the $million question because it differs wildly, the many Dictionaries refer to it as a very small room which you sit in and have your photo taken by a machine, more recently Wikipedia refers to them as a vending machine or modern kiosk. There are a few, mostly professional photographers, who somewhat miss the point, and refer to a portable studio as a photo booth?

The main difference from the booths of today versus the current variety is, as with other elements of photography, the introduction of digital cameras and digital printers. Long gone are the days of wafting the 'smelly' print in the air until it dried.

How does this evolve to Parties & Weddings

Firstly, back to the cultural difference, Western Europe functional and practical, America fun entertainment it's a polite way of a saying 'novelty'. Here in is where the current phenomenon took off. Once digital cameras became mainstream and a few software developers realised, applications they had developed for professional photographers, could just as easily apply to booths, with only a few minor modifications.

The very fact that they held the entertainment value in America meant the only obstacle was portability, hardly a showstopper. From just a handful, it didn't take long for the idea of hiring a booth at events to take off, pretty much just as with Anatols and the very first booth, the interest and growth was rapid. In around 2007 the bug really hit and even today is still growing across the States. Interestingly enough one of only a few and perhaps the major software producer, is still a Husband & Wife team in the UK, who's other applications are just part of a portfolio of photography related products. The key difference, though they appeared in the UK around the same time, it took longer to develop mostly due to the cultural difference in the perception of photo booths being fun/functional.
