TapSnap photo booth franchise launches in Portland, OR

TapSnap, the revolutionary new photo system that is shaping the future of event entertainment, has launched its first American franchise in Portland, and owner Scott Farestand couldn’t be more excited.

“I’m convinced the market is going to be huge,” says Farestand, who conducted extensive market research. “The Portland Bridal Show found that approximately 68 percent of brides in the area indicated that they’d need a photo booth within 12 months of the show. There’s 14,000 weddings in the area alone, and people spend an average of nearly $27,000 a wedding. I think TapSnap is ready to take a significant piece of the market.”

Farestrand says he was attracted to TapSnap by the machine’s sophisticated design. “TapSnap is a different breed of photo booth. The social media connectivity, the interactive features and its capability for corporate branding make it almost space-age,” he says.

TapSnap is the photo booth re-imagined without walls or ceilings, and made completely open-concept and highly interactive. Imagine a giant tablet computer that is larger than life and allows event guests to take their photos with a simple tap of a fingertip on the 42-inch multi-touch screen. Guests can then draw and add personal messages and digital props such as hats and mustaches to their pictures, and share them with the world on social media, all with the touch of a finger.

Another big plus for TapSnap was the faith Farestrand already had in its founders, Scott McInnes and the TapSnap executive team. He knows them as an independent operator with their company, DVDNow Kiosks.

“I like the way they listen to customers and really take the time to incorporate feedback,” he says.

Farestrand, who works full-time as a systems analyst, is able to run his DVDNow Kiosks business in conjunction with his regular employment and plans to do the same with TapSnap.

“My DVDNow business doesn’t take much time. It pretty much runs itself. And with TapSnap most of the events will be on evenings and weekends,” he says, adding that he plans to use the business to create part-time jobs for his kids when they are in college.

“I’m a dream chaser,” he says. “I want to show my kids to never be afraid to chase their dreams.”

TapSnap made its Portland debut at the MARX Jewelers’ booth at the Portland Bridal Show in January, giving visitors the opportunity to photograph themselves wearing some exquisite high-end jewelry.

“I would like to have TapSnap back again next year," says Slava Gurevich, the owner of Marx Jewelers. "I like the way it works. It was easy to use, easy to modify and the concept behind it is pretty cool - that you can share pictures on social media like Facebook."

Having your picture taken has never been this much fun. TapSnap is the next big innovation in event entertainment and franchising, bringing sophistication to the concept of the photo booth. Open-concept and instantly connected to social media, TapSnap blends a high-tech product with an innovative franchise model, and is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada.
