SnapFiesta is now officially an Austin photobooth company! SnapFiesta works on the edge of emerging technologies to provide professional photo booth experiences and deliver high-quality photography services. In this way, we fit right in at South By Southwest (SXSW) with our 2013 festival clients: Harvard Alumni Association, Plympton Publishing, and Mashable. All three events gathered thinkers and innovators from the digital and technological fields for networking and an all-around good time. After our second year of being called in to shoot, we decided to stay, and make Austin our new home.
Our photo booth captured fun snapshots of over 250 of Harvard’s alumni, faculty, and guests at the university’s second annual Digital Harvard celebration at Icenhaur’s, an event venue in Austin with enough of its own history to keep up the university’s legacy. Notably, Chief Digital Officer Perry Hewitt made opening remarks and introduced David Malan, a senior lecturer within Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences – just one of the eight Harvard schools represented at the event. SnapFiesta is honored to have been in attendance at the conference, a lively celebration of technological entrepreneurship.
At this year’s festival, we were in the midst of attendees that were applying technology to revolutionize not only college education and the entrepreneurial world, but also the world of storytelling. We kept the good times rolling in Austin with Plympton Publishing, a finalist of the SXSW Accelerator 2013 competition in the Entertainment and Gaming Technology category and host of the Story Strikes Back party at Lamberts. Serial fiction on a digital platform is the main draw of Plympton Publishing’s web-based products and it was easy to see their creative juices at work when guests stepped in front of our cameras.
They weren’t the only writers that knew how to kick back, all smiles in SnapFiesta’s photo studios. We also found ourselves at the Palm Door with Mashable for their Awesomest Journalism Party. Ever., which was where “Journalism x Technology @ SXSW”. The shindig featured awesome journalists, awesome Texan food and beer, and SnapFiesta’s awesome open-set photo booth. It was definitely one 2013 SXSW event not to miss, so we didn’t.
