About - SoPhoto is a professional photo booth and photo studio system. Fully automated and mobile, SoPhoto shoots, prints and uploads editorial quality photos all in real time. There is no photographer: instead, SoPhoto puts the creative process in the hands of the model with the same equipment as used to shoot the covers of Vogue and Vanity Fair.

Photo booth Calgary? The Social Photobooth by SoPhoto!

HOW IT WORKS

SoPhoto is used at corporate functions, in-store events, photoshoots, fashion shows, galas, graduations, weddings, store openings, launch parties and promotional events.

First, SoPhoto studios draw in thousands of customers to each installation, up to 25,000 in one week.

The next steps are simple.

  1. Your guests are professionally photographed.
  2. SoPhoto instantly emails photos to your guests or to a social media platform, as the flash goes off.
  3. Your guests post their photos via Facebook, Twitter, and email for all to see.
  4. Each user receives a fully-branded 4×6 printed picture on site.
  5. Your company gains valued clients and their contact information.

Through social media, your customers become faces of your brand. As they tag themselves in SoPhoto’s pictures, they propel your name and image throughout their networks. A typical campaign attracts 20,000 users/week. If each user has 200 friends, your reach increases from 20,000 to over 4 million viewers.

SoPhoto studios entertain, produce extremely high quality content, and attract everyone. Full integration with social media means that branded photos from your venue and events can be shared online in real time, via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms. This allows you to capture client data, and to promote yourself, your company or/and your brand in real time on a massive scale: If 1000 guests are photographed and post their photos to their 300 Facebook friends, the firsthand reach is 300,000.

Originally designed to meet the needs of models, actors, and the media, SoPhoto provides clients with consistently high quality photography in a user-friendly format. SoPhoto’s spontaneous, fun experience begins at the click of a mouse: the user is able to see herself live on screen, becoming both model and photographer as she, at once, poses for and takes photos.

By successfully drawing in clients and guests, Photostar has become indispensable to our clients, including Fortune 500 Companies, Celebrities, Leaders, Social Media Personalities, Families, Photographers, Media , Popular Destinations, Retailers, Event Venues, Parties, Hotels, Clubs, Agencies, PR Firms, Ad Agencies, Wineries,…, worldwide.
