How To Build A Photo Booth

Welcome to this series of articles written by the staff at Photo Booth Experts. These articles were not written in order to sell our products but rather they were written to give ideas and useful information to those looking to become more informed of certain details when building a photo booth yourself.

Who we are

We have been in the photo booth business since 2008 and have created from scratch our own custom designed DE LUXE PHOTO BOOTH, EASY ACCESS PHOTO BOOTH and PHOTO BOOTH SOFTWARE (PTBOOTH). In addition to having our own Photo Booth Rental Business we also sell our De Luxe photo booths, Easy Access Photo Booths and photo booth software (PTBooth) to entrepreneurs just like you who are interested in a thriving photo booth rental business.

Why are we sharing this information?

The answer is simple: We just want to help, no strings attached. Over the last couple of years we have received many phone calls from people with questions regarding the components and photo booth software as they were building their own photo booths. These calls have come from both people who have purchased our photobooth software (PTBooth) and from people who have general questions about the photobooth business. We have decided to publish this information in order to give you easier access to all the details to simplify your photo booth building process.

Starting photo booth business

Getting a photo booth has become a must have entertainment item for virtually any kind of fun social event. This has opened the door for photo booth rental businesses all over the world. It has also led to a lot of do-it-yourselfers building their own photobooths.

Taking this project on may seem like an easy task at first but chances are there will be many questions that will arise when it comes to deciding on the electrical components and structural design of the photo booth. Keep in mind that there is a huge selection in products that can be used and this can complicate matters. This is why it is imperative to know that the decisions made during the photo booth building process will have a direct impact on the reliability of the photo booth and for that matter the future of the photo booth rental business...

With more people in the business more than ever you have to separate yourself from your competition. As a result it should come as no surprise that the information available of how to build a photo booth is limited. It can be challenging to find people willing to share the nuances, hidden obstacles and solutions to problems that will help people to succeed in building a properly functioning photo booth. A new builder will have to do a tremendous amount of research trying to put together all the pieces of information available on the internet. The chances of failure or success are 50/50. With that being said we want to make it clear that YES, IT IS POSSIBLE TO BUILD A RELIABLE PHOTO BOOTH as long as the right combination of equipment and materials are used. The only other element needed will be your imagination, creativity, and determination to succeed.


The information provided is only our opinion (based on our own experience) of what we feel is the best approach towards building and designing a photo booth for party rentals. Remember that the choice of structure design, components and software is ultimately up to you.
