Shoot and Print in Real Time
Found this interesting photography group at the IMMAP Summit taking photos of the delegates in the exhibit hall. They’re like a walking photo-booth of sorts which looked funny because they also lug their printers and computers around with them.
I think this idea has been around for some time but this is the first time I’ve actually seen it in action. The model is similar to the photo-booth rental but this one actually has the photographers walking around, taking pictures and printing them within a couple of minutes.
The back-pack comes with two photo printers and a netbook hooked up to it. The one who carries the backpack is also the photographer while an assistant will operate take care of the print-outs.
I think their service is called PhotoMan and starting rentals for 2 hours is around Php9k. Their tagline is “shoot and print in real time”: Nice, cool little gig.
