Jimbo's First Photobooth
OMG. Just stumbled across these photos on an old computer. This is Jimbo's Original Photobooth. This is how Jimbo's Amazing Photobooth first began back in 2010. I built this photobooth using IKEA kitchen cabinets. I was stuck with the actual body for the photobooth until I wandered through IKEA. I relaised these kitchen cabinets would work perfectly. I bought 3, attached some wheels, led lights and 3 lamps and BANG. Jimbo's Amazing Photobooth was born. I still have this photobooth in my office. I don't think I can depart with it. So many memories lugging this around Melbourne attending every party imaginable. This photoboth has seen it all. Capturing memories that will last a life time to cheeky drunken photos people wish they never took lol. I retired this booth back in 2014/2015. I'm pretty sure people still have photostrips from the origianal booth still stuck on their fridge. The original printer took around 50 seconds to print one photo. Now it's about 12 seconds. Photostrips had to be cut into two with scissors. How times have changed lol. The Name Jimbo's Amazing Photobooth was a joint effort. When the first print came out of the phiotobooth, I said to my girlfriend at the time "This is AMAZING!" She replied, "Why don't you call it Jimbo's Amazing Photobooth?" and that was that. My first booking was for a girls 21st birthday party. It was a big hit and I knew I was onto something.
Thank you to all my Amazing fans who have reccommended, booked again and again and again. It's the only reason Jimbo's Amazing Photobooth has kept going all this time. It's nealry been 10 years, hard to beleive. It's been a blur, amazing fun, wild, crazy, hard work and many challenges faced along the way, but Jimbo's Amazing Photobooths have captured so many memories, some forgoten, others still laughed about til this day. I've met so many Amazing people. Some I've forgotten, others I cannot forget. I've been to your engagement party and your wedding, met your newborns, atended their 1st birthday and watched your family grow. I have many clients I call friends and all these friendships have became possible from a simple idea I had back in 2010. Thanks for the amazing memories and look forward to many more!
Keep up to date with Jimbo
