    Default Who still need portrait photographers when you have this?

    Saw Groupon send me this deal to my inbox..

    $12 for 30 Min Self-Shot Studio Photography Session + Photo DVD (Worth $90)

    I think if I receive enquires of asking me do I have promotion of studio portrait package, I'll just send them to this studio.

    How brilliant, I think I will copy the concept for my own profit/loss making venture.

    Set up a hair cutting booth that provides mirror, scissors and shaver but no hair-stylist.

    • Have loads of fun while cutting your own, family or friend's/rival's beautiful hair
    • Feel free at ease to explore and cut without the presence of a professional hair-stylist
    • create your own signature hair trademark
    • Sing and groove to favourite tunes played from your iPhone, iTouch, iPad and other devices
    • Booth designed to be enjoyed by everyone
    • Capture memorable and lasting moments to be cherished or cried over
    • Your hair cutting adventure/disaster is captured on video and available for download
    • Limited Groupons available

    Price: $8.00 for 20min session + Video download at our website. Total worth $50!

    I am still looking for a capital sponsor so please do not contact me for packages yet.

    If anyone wants to buy this idea from me I will only charge $1, or sing me a nice song.

    Old trick. Already used by ladies who promise $10 only massage and at the end the customer is asked to pay up $300 for various so-called extras.

    pricing a little low maybe just to attract interest ... suspect studio is box sized

    but i think its a GREAT IDEA .... cheaper than renting a bunch of photo booths for kids to blow money for wallet sticker photos .....

    fail or work we should encourage this type of entreprenural spirit

    I'm not say bad or good, for such ideal.

    just want to send people who is

    #1, looking for cheap cameraman,
    #2, want to shoot everything within the session*
    #3, give me all the photos, including the closed eyes/look away/smile not nice one

    to this studio, so let them go and "shoot themselves" till their heart contented.



    * these people are really epic, they will bring their ah gong, ah mah, ah boi, ah girl, gold fish, cat, dog, hamster plus maids, and also few luggages of clothing, toy cars, bicycle, not forgetting a long list of "want to shoot", then the mummy will be like a floor manager, screaming, yelling all her family members to get change, run in and out of the shooting area, she must be running Hungry Ghost Festival Gei Tai every year one. the camera man just need to click whenever see got people show up in the frame can liao.

    TRUE on every single point .... and as long as it makes profits why not ? This is all part of the little evolutions going on in the imaging world

    The Pokemon and Hello Kitty photo coin slot booths were not even the first ..... the Passport Photo Booth was the first of this branch of evolution

    Would this eat into the regular pro's rice bowl ? When it comes down to it.... no for so many reasons .... did lomography and polaroid or instagram kill regular photography ? No .... they just became part of evolution with their own arm of growth in photography
