About Me

Justin Jowett is a leader in the Australian Photo Booth Industry having been involved in the industry since 2010.

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, Brisbane 14/15 Jan 2020). 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, Customer Relationship Management and Blogging Your Way to Page 1 on Google.

He runs a consultancy service for any new or experienced boothers who want help with their businesses whether it be a general health check, bouncing ideas, learning from his module based education program 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 learn more visit the Photo Booth Biz Consulting Tab via the Menu.

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 dedicated to helping empower photo booth operators around the world with a transparent and cost effective lead generation solution he created in 2014: “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. Justin no longer owns or runs either Photobooth Finder service however wholly endorses these as still being valuable tools for the modern boother.

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.

BoothCon

BoothCon

Justin Jowett has been the organiser of Australia’s Photo Booth Expo: BoothCon since 2016. The next BoothCon is happening in Brisbane 14/15 Jan 2020.

BoothCon is more than your average industry event. It is a place where photo boothers from all around Australian and NZ can come together to learn, share, network, socialise and shop for the best that the local and international photo booth industry has to offer.

Booth Cover

Finding the right insurance at the right price is never an easy task. Back when Justin was boothing he was lucky to have a broker who understood the risks involved and ensured Justin’s business was covered. However it was clear that this wasn’t the case for all boothers. Off the shelf cover and many brokers and insurers were being selling inferior policies leaving boothers unprotected and with insufficient cover should they need it. Together with his business partner Steve Nelson Booth Cover was conceived and a unique scheme created to ensure all boothers could be covered properly: Booth Cover was born.

Testimonial

Prior to starting a booth business, I tried blogging and it did not go 
very well. At the time, I lived in Florida and was a member of the 
Florida BlogCon and attended every convention for 3 years trying to make 
headway into the business. I sat through keynote speakers and seminar 
after seminar every year trying to crack the code. In one 45 minute 
session with you, however, I learned more about blogging then I did in 3 
years with that group.

I am a bottom line, nuts and bolts kind of guy and your presentation was 
perfect for me and I just wanted to take the time to thank you for 
sharing that information with us. I am sitting down today to create my 
blogging plan and will get started on it right away.

Thanks again!

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 2010 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.

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.
