2021 Travel and Adventure Series
Experiential Green Screen Photography

Travel and Adventure Series Core Client

After half of the 2020 Travel and Adventure Show series was cancelled due to COVID-19, plans are underway for 2021.  Those plans will include the infamous US Event Photos experiential green screen photo booth.  How the booth will operate will depending on how things progress with the pandemic in the coming months.  We will follow local and CDC guidelines to make sure the 2021 season is great.  More on our COVID-19 green screen photo booths can be found HERE.

We started our huge Experiential Photo Marketing Green Screen Photo Booth six years ago, with the Travel Channel.  Travel Channel hired us to integrate a 10′ x 10′ photo experience into their 20′ x 20′ overall booth, using green screen photography to showcase travel destinations — and Travel Channel programming — world wide.  The next year, Travel Channel decided to eliminate their booth, and we thought the travel destinations green screen photo experience would fade away.  We were wrong.  The Travel and Adventure Series show management, who were impressed by our approach with participants, decided to hire us directly and we took over the entire 20′ x 20′ footprint.  Now the green screen photo booth is sponsored by various world wide tourism destinations, and features a different world wide experience every week.  In 2021, the show travels to Boston, Chicago, Washington, DC, Dallas, Bay Area (San Francisco), Los Angeles, San Diego, Tampa, Denver and Atlanta.  Instead of all the Travel Shows falling in the first quarter of the year, the 2021 proposed schedule will scatter the events throughout the year.  Once a schedule is finalized, you can find it here.

Virtual Travel and Adventure Show
Virtual Photo Booth during COVID-19 Pandemic

One of our core clients, the Travel and Adventure Show, is America’s favorite and largest consumer travel show series.  With COVID-19 slamming into the country, they postponed all of their in-person travel shows until next year.  But they did more:  they built a new series, the Virtual Travel and Adventure Show, from scratch.  Then, they rolled it out in record time to a huge audience.  With seven events, each night in the series spotlights a different travel destination and “allows consumers to keep their travel mojo” during pandemic isolation.

We’ve provided our flagship experiential green screen photo booth to the Travel and Adventure Show series for years.  For the virtual show series, they asked us to construct a virtual experience mimicking our in-person booth.  We thought hard and we’re proud of what we created.  Even better, the participants loved it.

The virtual photo booth, which premiered in November at the Caribbean Show and will continue for additional shows in the series, featured a live feed of participant photos straight to a photo gallery.  We created a campy introductory video demonstrating how the booth works, which is a simple process featuring the latest technology to automatically drop the background out of photos.  The booth was sponsored by MSC Cruises, and their brand was stamped on the entire experience creating a virtual experiential photo marketing event like no other.  As many people participated in the virtual booth as we typically have at our live events.  The result?  A marketing success in the middle of the pandemic.

Yamaha Green Screen Photo Booth at Bassmaster Classic

National Event Photography

For our fifth year, Yamaha brought us back for the (in)famous Bassmaster Magazine green screen photo booth at the world’s largest fishing contest, the Bassmaster Classic.  Held this year in Birmingham, families stopped by the booth to have their photo captured and placed on the cover of the sport’s magazine.  Many of the participants come back each year, and the green screen photos show how the kids have grown, year in, and year out.  Now a go-to, must see destination on the huge trade show floor, the line never stops.  Over three days, about 3,000 participants flow through the photo experience.  And while lead photographer, Mike Gatty, never stops shooting — each photo is as unique as the individual families.

Yamaha owns Skeeter Boats, and later this year we’ll be at their Owner’s Tournament, held outside Dallas, Texas, to provide another green screen photography experience.  For Skeeter, we reproduce iconic fishing scenes — and help participants picture themselves at the winner’s podium.
