What equipment do I need to set up a photobooth?

We’ve spent years developing our Expo, photobooths and selfie pods and we’ve tested out loads of different equipment. We reckon we’ve got it sorted now as everything we use is a balance of fantastic quality and great value for money.

Obviously there’s a huge range to choose from but here’s what we use and recommend.
