Plus, detailed analytics to show how wide and far your brand has reached.

A trade show idea that’s worthy of your brand



We set out to design a highly engaging marketing experience that not only delivers professional, desirable headshots to your guests but is also a simple, frictionless lead generation tool.

That means that all you have to worry about is developing positive and lasting relationships with your audience.

Expert photographer

An expert



Each Headshot Lounge is staffed by a highly skilled, personable veteran photographer, who just gets it. A master in professional lighting and the soft skills to see and draw-out a person’s 'best face', over and over again.

An outstanding studio lighting setup means all photos come straight out of the camera with minimal post-processing adjustment required.

Headshot being taken

An experience



Each headshot takes roughly 90 seconds to complete so you can expect to see up to 200 people per day, per lounge. We can scale this up to serve any size audience.

The attendees drawn to your trade show booth will be able to share their headshot with everybody immediately through one of our sharing kiosks. The interface is simple, intuitive and branded with your logo.

A truly fun and engaging experience that makes your brand look like a hero!

Customer using kiosk

An unbeatable lead generation tool



As your clients wait for their personalised headshot, there is opportunity for your sales team to interact, furthering relationships and heightening brand engagement and loyalty.

Our sharing kiosks let participants send headshots directly to their email, SMS or social media - this is how we capture that valuable lead data for you! Naturally, they’ll want to share their shiny new branded headshots through social media, extending your brand reach and leveraging your message online. Zero effort to reach thousands more potential leads.

That's all there is to it.

The longest line and dwell time through high quality, studio-lit, on-location headshots with real-time social sharing.

Hundreds of happy clients


It’s simple. Participants get a professional headshot they love!

Clients also leave with a positive experience of your brand and a loyalty that can’t be bought.

Client case study

Invest in quality.



To attract conference goers to their career services booth, the ACFE decided to offer their conference attendees free headshots so they looked at renting a photo booth. Unfortunately, these are usually run by business people, not photographers, who don't understand lighting, photography or direction. Not the best option.

Instead, the ACFE brought in a photographer they randomly found on the internet who offered a very low price. The headshots were less than suitable due to poor lighting and bad direction. The photographer wasn’t able to keep up with the fast pace required to shoot hundreds of people, each in just 90 seconds.



"Ultimately, we decided to invest a little more and to go with a professional headshot photographer with an impressive portfolio. Our attendees couldn’t stop raving about the high quality. No regrets!

We've just finished our 3rd year working with Steven Joseph Fogarty of ExpoTraffic.com, with year 4 in the planning."

Carrie Kelly, Human Resources Director, ACFE
