Nowadays almost everyone wants to quit the conventional 9 to 5 desk job and do something out of the box. This is because these jobs suck the life out of you. There is zero work life balance and even if they pay well, they are not worth the mental pressure. Having control over one’s time is the biggest and the most important asset ever. And you can have this control when you are working for yourself.
If you are someone who is extremely passioante about photography then we would recommend you to invest in a good 360 photo booth and start your own photography business. You would be glad to hear that this is a really rewarding alternative to the ordinary desk job. It has a really fun work environment, you’ll get to attend exciting events, doing something you are extremely passionate about. You will bring a lot of positive vibes and capture people in their happiest moments. And since photo booths are literally the life of the party, you will get to be in the limelight as well. The best part is that this can be a very profitable business as well.
We recommended adding the 360 photo booth to your photography business because these days people enjoy 360 booths more than the conventional photo booths. You must have noticed that almost all events nowadays have the 360 photo booths and they do an excellent job at keeping the guests engaged. The 360 photobooth captures 360-degree photos, video and even slow motion videos as well. Guests can also get their GIFs made. All they have to do is just stand at the platform and pose and the 360 booth will capture them from various angles.
The best part about the 360 photo booth is that it is easily portable and has an extremely quick and easy setup which means that your team wont have to worry about setting it up at every event. Now, lets talk numbers. These days almost every event, be it social or corporate books a 360 photo booth because this is what will make their event worth remembering.
Social events such as weddings, birthday/anniversary parties, bridal/baby showers, high school graduations. Proms etc all call for photographers and they can pay upto $500 to $1000 or they might pay hourly, typically $250-$350. These rates would vary based on your location and a number of other factors. We would recommend that you start off with decent prices and then as you start getting more and more clients, you gradually increase the prices.
Corporate events on the other hand are longer and pay much better than social events. Companies usually pay by the hour and you can expect to make anywhere between $350 to $450 per hour. You can definitely charge more if you are providing other services such as custom green screens, branded photos etc. Basically the more you customise your client’s experience, the more revenue you will generate. Also, another advantage is that these companies have the tendency to work with the same photography team again and again. So be sure to leave them impressed.
We wish you all the best for your new photography business.
