Before for special occasion like Valentine’s, Mother’s Day we used to hire a photographer to get photographs for the customers that dine in. But you could only do that on special occasions. As the price of hiring a photographer was expensive. Which was not recommended to do everyday. Which means you’re limited to only certain days. But nowadays its easier, with the introduction of the self service photo booth. Here a hassle free picture taking device. You need to set the photo booth at a specific location. Your customers only needs to pose and snap their picture. They can either print, download to their mobile phones, share it with their friends or even on social media.

There is numerous types of photo booth in the market to buy or rent. But if your restaurant is just starting up and you are afraid to invest in a photo booth. You can build one yourself. There are great sites on the web with instructions on how to make your own photo booth. Here is a few that I found interesting.
