About The JOHN WILKES
an 1895 camera
We took a 125 year old view camera and converted to digital, combining the beauty of a vintage camera with the quality of digital technology. It's the ultimate booth-less Photo Booth for parties, weddings and events.
A 22-INCH SCREEN
The John Wilkes is a 12 by 20 inch view camera, and is maned by an experienced attendant. All your guests have to do is stand in front of our lens and pose. A 22-inch high-definition screen instantly displays portraits in a slideshow for everyone to admire.
WE BRING PROPS!
From high-brow to low-brow to no-brow, The John Wilkes wows guests at any event. Our portable studio has a 6 foot by 10 foot footprint. We bring a suitcase of tasteful props; vintage feathers boas, hats and glasses.
BLACK AND WHITE IMAGERY
All our images are black and white. Trust us, everyone looks better this way. All photographs are uploaded within 24 hours to a print-ordering gallery and to Facebook. It's easy to tag yourself and order beautiful prints or thank-you cards.
