FAQ

What is a photobooth?

We have two types of photo booths. Our Classic Mugshots Photobooth is a large box of fun in which the photos are taken behind the curtain so you can go crazy and have those extra fun photos taken. Our other booth is the Party Photobooth which is a more open booth that allows you to have heaps of your friends in each photo – fantastic for larger events or if you just want more space to be creative in. With either booth, 3 photos are taken in each session and within seconds they are printed out as 2 x strips of photos with your event details printed on the bottom.

How many people can fit in the photobooth?

Our classic booth can fit 1 to 6 people and our Party booth can fit a whole crowd!

What lighting does a photobooth require?

All of the technical equipment is enclosed inside the booth so the lights and camera are all there, the only thing that is missing is you!

Does the photobooth print in colour or black & white?

YES, you and your guests have the choice of either colour or black and white with the touch of a button every time you jump in the booth!

Does Mugshots Photobooths have insurance?

Yes, we have public liability and are fully insured to operate at all venues.

Can I rent the booth for extra hours?

Yes you can- if you decide you want more time at your actual event providing we don't have to be somewhere afterwards, we can stay as long as you need!

What would be the best location for the booth at my function?

This is something that we can work out together. Easy access with accessible power supply and undercover is the best place to have the booth.

Is there an option to have a corporate logo or personal message on the photo strips?

Absolutely…for a corporate logo if you are able to provide a digital file we can add your logo. 

For the personalised message that we offer we have a range of logos for you to choose from, however you are also more than welcome to provide your own logo if you wish to do so.

What about props?

We love props so we include them as part of the hire for most packages! We have fake moustaches, glasses, hats and much more. We find props help people to have a bit of extra fun without being 'totally exposed'. You can provide your own if you like, but most people love our box of tricks.

What is the size of the photo strips ?      

You get 2 x photo strips and they are 5cm x 15cm each

Does Mugshots Photobooths have heritage training?

Yes we definitely do! All of our staff have undertaken this training to ensure that we can assist you with a Photobooth to any venue that requires heritage training such as Old Parliament House and other historical venues around Canberra.

When do you set up the Photobooth?

We contact the venue a few weeks before your event and discuss all of the set up details. We are always completely set up hours before your event starts and your Photobooth attendant will arrive 15 minutes before the Photobooth start time to turn the booth on and be ready for your guests to jump in and have a blast!
