Q. How do I make a booking?

A. You can contact us here to make a booking.

Q. How far in advance should a booking be done?

A. Tell us as soon as you have the date so that we can mark it down first. We shoot about 700 events yearly but we have the capability to do 4 concurrent shoots with our current staffing. On weekends and hot dates on weekdays we are often fully booked for multiple shoots months and on rarer occasions a year or two in advance. We do have limited teams available and as much as we would hate to, we do reject quite a bit of shoots as we can’t run our resources so thin that it potentially jeopardises a job. We do require a deposit however to secure the booking.

You can contact us here to make a booking.

Q. How do I make a deposit/payment?

A. Deposit is typically 50% of the full price rounded off to the nearest $100 and will be required to confirm the booking. Payment may be made via bank transfer or Paynow. Remember to indicate your name and date of event in the remarks when making the paynow or bank transfer.

Q. How does live photography work?

One or more of our photographers are equipped with professional digital SLRs with a wireless transmitter. Immediately after the photos are taken, the photographer chooses the best shot to send and it gets projected onto the screen within seconds. (If live projection is chosen). Within minutes, we will print out credit card sized photocards for each person in the photo and our staff will distribute the photos personally to the guests (unless it’s > 1000 pax event, then we will suggest alternative methods).

Q. Do you do event photography?

Yes, we will be able to shoot journalistic, documentary, performances, VIPs, setup photos etc on top of the candid, portrait & posed photos to be printed for the guests. 1 photographer can generally handle all these for up to 300 guests. For larger events, it is recommended to add another photographer to cater to the response from the crowd.

Q. How many photographers/printers do we need?

One photographer can cater to about 200 standing or 300 sitting crowd. A dedicated photographer will also be required if there is a mobile studio. Each printer is capable of printing 75 photocards / hr or 300 photocard in a 4 hr event. Thus a standard setup of 2 printers can print up to 600 photocards in 4 hrs. Note that a mobile studio tends to generate a high volume of photos and will need about 2 printers itself.

Q. How much power is required?

A typical setup at 2 printers and 1 printing laptop draws 108W of power.

Laptop : 52W
Printer: 28 W * 2

Q. Can I get a soft copy of the prints?

Yes, the soft copies will be copied onto a complimentary 8GB thumbdrive and passed to you immediately after the event.

Q. What sizes of prints are available?

A. The current credit card sized photocard is 2R (91mm x 55mm), the next size up is 4R (6in x 4in) which is the standard photo lab photos that everyone is familiar with. Most people prefer the photocards because it’s easy to fit into the wallet or display on fridges, partitions etc.

  • 4R is not pocketable, the gentlemen tend to request to reprint because they have bent their photos in their pockets.
  • 4R takes much longer to print and diminishes the instant print appeal.
  • Information cannot be printed at the back of 4R paper
  • It costs a lot more than photocards.
  • Finally, they aren’t as fun and cute as the photocards =)

From our experience, the credit cards size photocards are much better for client (branding and costs) and for the guests (speed, fun factor and keep value). With events that has printing 4R only, the guests that have been to our events tend to miss at not having photocard prints to keep it in their wallets.

Q. Are photocards the same as polaroids?

Photocards are the modern replacement for polaroids but there are numerous advantages over polaroids. A polaroid camera is a simple point and shoot camera and would not be able to get close to the photo quality that a professional camera provides. With photocards you can have multiple copies, soft copy and many other advantages over polaroids.

Q. How do my guests get their photocards?

For events up to 300 pax standing / 1000 pax sitting, we are able to distribute the photocards to the guests personally. Beyond this number, we would have to advise guests to collect the photos themselves from a counter.

Q. Can each of my guests get a copy of the photocard?

Yes, we will print a copy of the photocard for each person in the photo.

Q. How many photocards do we get?

If you opt for our standard photocards, we do not keep a cap on the number of photocards printed. We let the printers print as fast as it can. For a 4 hr event with 2 photocard printers, it can generate up to 600 photocards. If you anticipate you’ll need more than that, more printers will have to be added. For custom photocards, we will need to pre-print the back of the photocards and thus will be limited to the number of custom photocards ordered. When the custom cards run out you can choose to

  1. Stop printing (not recommended as many guests will be disappointed)
  2. Print on blank cards (will be charged at $50 / 100 cards)
  3. Print on LiveStudios standard cards (unlimited and no extra charge)
