Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Hoot Booth?

Hoot Booth is a fresh, new, innovative take on traditional photo booths in Calgary. It is a digital photo booth that uses a high end digital camera and professional studio lighting to produce high quality photo booth photos. Because it’s open-air, you can try to fit as many people as you can! And because it’s digital, you can take as many photos as you want!

How does it work?

Our HOOTographers are trained to know when to take hilarious photos. Of course we’ll take standard ones as well too, but we love candids, and we think you will too. Let us do it for you, so you can just worry about slapping on your best face.

What’s included in the rental?

The rental includes delivery and setup anywhere in Calgary, a HOOTographer to make sure everything goes smoothly, a box full of our zaniest props, a fabric backdrop of your choice, instant photo download to your smart phone, all images on a disc, and a gallery online where your guests can download their photos for free!

Do you come early to setup?

Absolutely! We will arrive 30-45 mins before your booking start time to setup. We will have everything ready to go on time for you.

Do you offer instant prints?

We don’t offer instant prints mainly because it takes time to print the photos, which in turn decreases the turnover in the photo booth. Lines do get long when we’re around. We want your guests to have as many photos as they want! Most people end up losing prints or they get crumpled up after a night of drinking. What a waste of trees and money!

How long will it take before I can see my photo?

Half a second! Our photo booth has a screen and your photo will show up right after it’s taken. You won’t just take one after that!

I see that you offer a live photo projection. What’s the deal with that?

People love our live photo projection. Most Calgary venues have big screens and projectors with a static image when there are no presentations. We can make use of that by having the photos taken in the booth stream live to your event big screen! How cool is that?

How do I get my photo?

The photos get processed to ensure they look their best and then will be uploaded to our gallery on hootbooth.com the day after your event. High resolution photo downloads will ALWAYS be FREE. Your guests can also buy physical prints, buttons, cards, even mugs starting @ $2 if they wish to.

Can I bring my own props?

Absolutely, we encourage it!

What is the minimum space requirement for the Hoot Booth?

We require a space that is at least 8’ deep x 10’ wide x 7’ high within 12ft of a 110v power outlet.

What happens in case there’s a malfunction?

Our HOOTographer will ensure everything goes smoothly, we promise.

Can I get a book made of all the photos from the event?

Yes! We can custom design a photo book for you to commemorate your special event. Please inquire about prices.

How are the quality of the photos?

Our Hoot Booth was designed by a Calgary professional wedding photographer. He felt there was a need for photo booths to have better quality photos and lighting, especially. Our lighting is a professional studio strobe and we use a Nikon DSLR camera to get the best results. Not a point and shoot, or worse, a webcam with a puny flash. Your photos will rock, just like you!

Why else should I rent the Hoot Booth and not someone else?

1. We are 100% digital, so we don’t waste paper or ink. This means we cost way less than our competitors and that means more money in your pocket!

2. Our specially trained HOOTographers know when to press the button. This makes your photos look more natural and way more hilarious. This may be a small point, but the results are huge. Look at our previous events and you’ll see for yourself!

3. Amazing customer service. Have you seen all our 5 star reviews on Google yet? It's because we always answer emails quickly, we are always on time, we love what we do, and always make sure people have a great time. We are not shy about getting people to use the booth either, so they better be ready.
