Inside Out Photobooths bring the printers directly to the streets - enabling the public to participate instantly and for free! Participants enter the Photobooth, make a strong face, and our camera snaps their portrait. Within one minute, a black and white poster is printed. Participants then take the posters to paste in a public space in their home communities. Over 160,000 portraits have been printed at Inside Out Photobooths locations around the world.
The Inside Out Project team has numerous Photobooth trucks parked around the world. Want to bring one to you? Scheduling depends on budget, location, and availability. Please keep in mind that we do not have the means for the trucks to travel for free, and additional fees do apply. A minimum of three days of use is required. Your message must be strong, and all elements must be secured before we come to you. Please ensure that you have read our guidelines & that you can cover all costs and expenses before contacting us.
Remember, Inside Out Project cannot be used for private events, and does not participate in any branding, sponsorship, or marketing.
This one pager has more information on what the truck requires for its use.
This flyer for school actions may be a good way for you to show your community how the truck works.
Any children visiting the booth? Their parents must sign this release form before they can participate.
