Our parent company JARM Amusements Group specialises in providing, entertainment, catering and mobile bars for corporate events and private parties throughout the UK. In addition to their own services they quite often contract in outside specialists for particular jobs. After noticing a regular requirement for photography services they funded the acquisition of specialised photography equipment and the training of staff members to set up their own photography department to support their existing product line.
Because the company quite often provides themed entertainment and services it was felt that there was an opening for offering a theming service to complement the standard photography. After looking at acquiring various backdrops to facilitate this, it was suggested that we looked into chroma key, or ‘Green Screen’ photography.
Basically using this method of production (which is pretty similar to what special effects people in Hollywood use) we can take an image of someone, add it to various backdrops and provide 3 or 4 images from a single shot. These are then uploaded to our web server and your guests can download them to their hearts content.
The photography services department is currently one of the fastest growing in the whole group. In the space of a few months we have moved into the photo booth market, are offering Paparazzi and red carpet photography services, and are now trialling the Sony SnapLab and Olympus Fast Print range of portable photo labs, allowing guests to print their own photos at events directly from their mobile phones.
