SocialSnap Studios had the distinct honor of providing the entertainment and photographic fun for the Mayoral Inaugural Ball earlier this month. Recently re-elected mayor, Bob Buckhorn, was honored at this first-time event along with other former Tampa mayors at Straz Center for the Performing Arts. The event, sponsored by the Economic Club of Tampa, raised funds for the Hillsborough Education Foundation’s Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program.

Fun with the Un-“Selfies”

Photo Booth in Tampa

SocialSnap’s complete green screen studio produced the ultimate “selfies” while providing a center-stage for the guest “stars” to entertain and delight.

With little incitement from SocialSnap “phototainers” Jim and Kathy McManus, the affair quickly became rowdy.   The bright lights and studio pizzazz of SocialSnap’s photo shoot prompted the black-tie clad attendees to don boas, top hats, and canes to produce spectacular photo keepsakes of the evening and then post them to Facebook and other social media.

Guests selected from premium top hats and other enhancements prior to taking center-stage for their “close-up”.

One favorite green screen background was our “digital mayor” – our live green screen display allowed guests to position themselves either side of the mayor, in front of the seal of the city in his office. We were also very honored to photograph Mr. & Mrs. David Straz, benefactors and namesake of the Straz Center, in front of an image of the building that bears their name.
