It’s Only A Photo Booth… What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

To say that Photo Booths can be problematic is an understatement. You can go weeks, or even months, without a glitch, and then right when you have a complete sense of false security, there’s a failure in the system that you have to figure out and fix fast. Bill Vahrenkamp knows Photo Booths inside and out – he’s one of the most respected guys people go to when they have they issues. Bill has over 35 years of experience photographing weddings and events. He started printing on-site 25 years ago and has been operating photo booths for 10 years. Bill combines his BA in photography, experience, patience and sense of humor to lead the tech support team at Imaging Spectrum.

Last year, Bill’s PBX presentation “Trouble shooting On The Fly,” was among the most received talks of the conference. This year, he takes it a step further, with an extended time period to answer your questions. You don’t need the headaches of lost revenue, or a Bridezilla screaming at you while you try to diagnosis why your booth is down. Come to this seminar, bring your questions, and leave with a better knowledge of just how PBs work!
