Initially drawn to the romance and nostalgia of photobooths, my main mission is to do as much as possible to prevent the extinction of the chemical or analog photobooth. In addition to my photobooth art, I sporadically work for an analog photobooth company where I aspire to better learn the mechanics of the booths. I also contribute regularly to Photobooth.net with local and international submissions.

With a photobooth you can't set up a tripod or even look through a lens, all placements are based off former photobooth shots or just pure guessing. Though I appreciate and even envy very manual photographers, I never shoot that way with a camera and that helps translate into a near total lack of control in the photobooth. No apertures, no shutter or film speeds, no dodging or burning, pushing or pulling...just a photo that you take for how it is and work around it, instead of manipulating it to work for you.
