It’s a snap as Chris focuses on a mobile booth

WITH pink flamingos and Kamahl and John Denver records on the walls, Chris Lee's caravan cannot fail to raise a smile.

And that is exactly what he wants.

Mr Lee has converted a 40-year-old Viscount caravan into what he believes to be Australia's first true mobile photo booth.

Dubbed "The Caravan of Smiles", it made its debut at the Golden Days Festival at Coolum last month where it proved a hit.

Festival-goers lined up to pose for a total of 800 photos in a day.

At $8 a pop, or more accurately, a click-click-click-click, it is a handy little earner for Mr Lee who also operates other photo kiosks.

Mr Lee, of Peregian Beach, said he had been looking to extend the photo kiosk concept when he chanced upon the part-renovated caravan.

 

He plans to hire it out for weddings and other functions, and take it to markets and festivals.

People seemed to enjoy the fun of a photo booth and the thrill of almost instant photos in their hands, he said. "People go into a photo booth to have fun. They ham it up.''

The booth is at the Eumundi Friday night market over summer and also there on Saturdays.
