About Me

Justin Jowett is a leader in the Australian Photo Booth Industry having been involved in the industry since 2009.

He is the head organiser of the Australian Photo Booth Expo “BoothCon which will takes place in January every year (Brisbane 2017, Sydney 2018, Melbourne 2019). The main focus of the expo is to provide valuable education and motivation to photo booth operators to achieve greater success in their businesses. There is also the latest photo booth industry products and services on display at the trade show.

He is also a photo booth industry speaker and has regularly spoken at both BoothCon and the US Expo “PBX” in Las Vegas where he is known to speak on Target Marketing, Cutomer Relationship Management and Blogging.

He runs a consultancy service for any new or experienced boothers who want to bounce ideas or generally have someone who knows the industry and they can trust to give them sound advice on all things photo booth business related. To get in touch with him about these services email justin@justinjowett.com or phone 0411 167150.

He is the Co-owner and advisor to Booth Cover the only 100% dedicated photo booth industry insurance company which launched in mid 2016. Booth Cover offers expert insurance advice and policies to meet the increasingly custom demands of the photo booth industry something no one else was catering to. Justin got involved in this as he wanted to help ensure photo booth operators businesses are properly protected and their risks effectively managed so they can get on with what they do best, photo boothing.

He is also dedicated to helping empower photo booth operators around the world with a transparent and cost effective lead generation solution with his main projects “Photobooth Finder”(Australia) and “The Photobooth Finder (USA/Canada). This online photo booth finding service is creating valuable connections between those looking to hire a photo booth and local photo booth hire operators. The Photobooth Finder platform does this by giving brides, party holders and event planners a free search, comparison and enquiry tool, saving them time and money in the often confusing search for the perfect photo booth for a wedding, party or corporate event. Conversely photo booth operators are given a niche market place to showcase their businesses and attract new business in a highly transparent and valuable way.

Prior to Photobooth Finder he ran a successful photo booth business for nearly 5 years in Brisbane, Australia. It was during that time he saw the industry grow exponentially and it quickly became apparent to him that there was an opportunity to make a difference for both consumers and photo booth operators hence he stopped competing and started helping.

He also has extensive experience in customer service having worked in a number of different roles on and offline. A large part of his pre photo booth career was spent managing various travel agencies which allowed him to combine his love for travel with his passion to help.

My Project

Photobooth Finder

Photobooth Finder is Australia’s number 1 photo booth website that gives the public a free search, comparison and enquiry service.

The free service went live in Jan 2015 and is the brain child of Justin Jowett. Having worked in and around the Photo Booth Hire industry since 2009 he saw the amazing growth that the industry had experienced. This growth whilst exciting for everyone already involved actually made it harder for existing photo booth hire operators to compete as hoards of new operators joined the marketplace and profit margins began to quickly shrink as a price war ensued.

Equally harder became the ability for the general public to find and choose the most suitable photo booth hire operators for their wedding, birthday party, corporate event, school formal or charity event as the choice grew from a handful per city to in excess of 100 in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Melbourne with Perth and other cities close behind.

So with the writing on the as far back as 2012 Justin started planning his exit from the photo booth hire franchise he was then a part of. The tipping point came in early 2014 with the timing right and the idea well formed he sold his photo booth hire franchise and used every penny to bankroll a much bigger and involved beast: Photobooth Finder.
