Planning your office or corporate Christmas or New Year’s party can be so much fun, but also stressful. You want to ensure the venue is perfect, the food is amazing (and there’s enough), and the entertainment creates the wow factor that your guests will be raving about around the water cooler on Monday morning.

It might seem obvious, but have you considered capturing those memories? or even combining the entertainment with the photography? Here are five tips and ideas on how you can enhance this year’s Christmas or New Years party with photography.

1. Polaroid Photo Booth (DIY)

Given the digital age we live in, nothing is only lived once – it’s shared and reposted over and over again on social media platforms. They say that once on the web, always on the web. Given Christmas and New Years is a time to let your hair down, celebrate the wins, new friendships formed and challenges overcome, having this blasted over the internet is not ideal but you want the memory to last.

A super simple way to avoid the digital footprint is with a Polaroid photo booth. To execute you will not need a professional photographer, just a Polaroid camera and film and a well lit photo wall backdrop to pose in front of.

2. Roll Out The Red Carpet (DIY)

Put your guests in the spotlight and make them feel like celebrities as they arrive at this year’s Christmas party.

A Red Carpet Experience will make your guests feel as though they’re arriving at the Golden Globes, stunningly like Emma Stone and in style like Ryan Gosling did when they won earlier this year.

It’s sophisticated and fun and doubles as a selfie wall for guests to pose in front of all night.

The execution: a red carpet and bollards, pretty backdrop, beautiful lighting, a paparazzi photographer and if you wanted to go as far as video, someone interviewing guests – “who are you wearing tonight?”.

3. Giphy Studio

Gifs are fun. Full stop. They are fun to watch, fun to make and fun to share. But really, when do you ever get the chance to make your own? This year’s silly season is the perfect opportunity to get a giphy studio. It will have your guests in stitches.

To execute you will need the help of The Ultimate Selfie professionals.

4. Selfie Studio Photo Booth

Selfies have absolutely taken the world by storm, and with the power of technology photo booths have gone from being in the big boxes you would see in shopping malls (or still do) to compact selfie photo booths that can be set up practically anywhere.

With a Selfie Studio Photo Booth you either pose in a full length mirror or a tablet, then bam the photo is taken on a professional camera and automatically shared on social media, or if you want to go old school it can be instantly printed. What a great gift for your guests to take home too.

5. Green Screen Photo Booth

Green screen photography can take your guests anywhere in the world, right back in time or unimaginable places.

What is green screen photography? It’s the process of photographing people in front of a green screen and superimposing them onto a digital backdrop of your choice using specialised software.

It is very popular at themed events. Think Great Gatsby with all the glitz and glamour, or fun Christmas backdrops that will transport your guests to the North Pole with Santa and his elves.

To execute you will need to hire the professionals. Speak to the EventPix team about how we can help.
