Adam co-founded Reakt and has a passion for developing new products and being a marketing guru. He wishes there were more hours in a day or he could clone himself, we’re not too keen on that idea though…
When he’s not building a vintage booth or reading his SEO book, he’s scouring Ebay for Landrover parts and working out where to hide them so his wife doesn’t find them.

Amy’s favourite part of her job as Reakt’s designer (except for lunch) is turning clients ideas into reality to create awesome looking booths and selfies. Every day brings a new challenge: Sleek or retro? Green or purple? These life changing decisions mean Amy lives life on the edge so she looks forward to baking, photography and climbing into her onesie at every opportunity.

Dave loves building Adam’s inventions. We’ve always wondered why he was so keen to be at work and then we found out his only hobby is fishing. He joined the Reakt team 3 years ago and is now the best photo booth builder in the world, well, in Birmingham.

People can’t resist getting a selfie with Eddie when he’s on photoboothing duty, he’s certainly our most photogenic member of staff and thinks he’s great with the ladies.

Co-founder of Reakt and the most popular member of Cradely Town Pensioners Football Club, Glen could sell a hamburger to a vegan. Well, if the hamburger was a photobooth and the vegan didn’t have one. When he’s out of the office he’s pumping iron at the gym or hanging out with his family.

We’re not kidding ourselves, we know that Reakt’s success is down to Mom’s seamstress skills, we don’t know where we’d be without her and our photo booth curtains would certainly be less impressive.

Everyone’s on their best behaviour when Ken, our accountant, is in the office. When he’s not number crunching or drinking coffee he’s keeping us in line and getting us organised, he likes to think he’s firm but fair.

2018

Onwards and upwards

We searched for ideas to set up a business to earn extra cash and to have some fun. We stumbled on the photobooth industry and were impressed with the potential ROI. With only a few UK booth suppliers and nobody we felt confident enough to buy from we decided to build our own. Adam’s engineering experience was invaluable, se sourced some of the best components and after some of trial and error we built our first photo booth and set up Bam Booths Ltd.

The booth was ready, website launched and a Facebook page created. Time for our first paid event. Introducing Adam and Jennifer, the bride and groom our friends from work. Loads of people watched us set up which was pretty stressful, they'd never seen a mobile photo booth before and everyone loved it. We felt a bit guilty for stealing the happy couple's limelight, but not too guilty. The bookings started rolling in.

We added another booth, then 2 more and before we knew it we needed to employ part time staff to help us manage all the events. We looked after our customers and they loved our service. Our first corporate customer was British Gas which was an eye opener to the industry and how massive the market could be. We carried out over 400 events per year and wanted to expand the business.

The time had come to give up our full-time jobs and start manufacturing the booths. Our other halves were nervous but we had every confidence in ourselves and the popularity of the photo booth. T3 Photo booths was formed and we’ve never looked back. Our support is second to none and we have even helped new boothers set up their own businesses.

Alongside the wedding bookings and building and selling the booths, we took on more corporate events. Working closely with big names including Coca Cola, Red Bull, Pringles and London Marathon to design successful marketing campaigns, every event was exciting and brought new challenges. We love to design bespoke activations tailored to company objectives.

New products, websites and a fresh marketing direction. We sell our booths, ultimate selfies, magic mirrors and hashtag printing stations across the world in an ever-expanding industry. We develop activations for digital, social & sales campaigns for corporate, experiential and seasonal events and take brands on an invaluable journey. Our new offices in The Custard Factory in Birmingham are the start of the next phase of our journey.

The way we take and share photographs is changing...
