Robert John started off as a Robert John Productions, his DJ business. He discovered a fascination with technology and photography. He began to think of ways to add to the entertainment factor of his DJ business. Photo Morphing was the first photo op he offered, and soon after expanding to Pic-A-Bod. He wanted to create a photo op that was as fun and interactive.
Digital cameras and programs continue to get better and better. We added a Roaming Photographer that would take photos of guests during events and send the files to be printed with an overlay border. Cover Shots were added with the ability of adding a personal touch to each and every photo. On-Site printing time for a 4X6 print was approximately 45 seconds.
The option of overlays on prints were working great. We got into Green Screen technology, opening the floodgates of creativity. On-site Dye Sub printers were added and prints are taking around 30 seconds per 4X6 photo! New windows began to open every year.
Custom Logos became an option. We also added the option of doing a full body green screen. A big thanks goes to Adobe for Photoshop for all of their advancement and updates. Photoshop has always been a big part of what we do. On-site Dye Sub printers also upgraded and we started printing 20 seconds per 4X6 photo!
The next step was to add a more interactive element to our photo options. It started with the idea of putting people "In The Scene" of the photos. We still offer Photo Morphing, but re branded it to "Funography" and Pic-A-Bod continued to grow with blending colors to make them more realistic.
A big change happened when we added (Open-Air) Photo Booths, Big Heads, iFun Photos, Red Carpet, Moto-Cross and a large gallery of different themed options. In 2012, daughters Arianna and Alexis, got into the photo business. We invested in a faster printing system, allowing our prints to be ready in seven seconds. Lastly, we finally added the option to email your photos at events, the beginning of our sharing station.
After years in the making, we developed a system that works the way RJ wanted it to. With thousands of different options and the ability to see yourself live in the photo, we can get guests into the perfect position every time. Processing time is faster than ever. Our sharing stations are equipped with the latest technology that can handle any size event, from private parties to Comic Con.
Continuing to upgrade and improve every aspect of our company, the future is bright, colorful, and full of endless possibilities. Remember, if you can dream it we can make it happen.
