Meet Travis Walker of Flashbar Photo Booth

Today we’d like to introduce you to Travis Walker.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
The story of how Flashbar Photo Booth was started. I (Travis Walker) had the idea for a DIY photo booth for my wedding.  The day of our wedding, there was so much going on, I actually ended up forgetting the batteries for the camera and our DIY photo booth was a complete failure.  Even though I failed at having a photo booth for my wedding, I enjoyed the process of bringing everything together and I knew I could do this in a way that others would enjoy.  In that moment, I decided to start my own photo booth company. After the honeymoon, of course 🙂

Steve Jobs once said, “Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.” Knowing that, I contacted a college buddy of mine, Byron Smith, who already had experience building his own web design company. I asked him to partner up with me in starting a photo booth company. Byron actually said no at first, but eventually decided to join me and on November 9th 2016, Flashbar Photo Booth was born. We officially launched the company in May 2017.  As the owners of Flashbar Photo Booth, we are dedicated to enhancing your guest experience by creating lasting memories.

Has it been a smooth road?
When you’re a small business owner, it’s never a smooth road. You have to be the accounting department, sales, marketing, IT support, and much more.  The biggest challenge has been finding balance in our personal lives with Flashbar. Byron has a family and I have a wife that I have to make time for. We also have full time jobs, and coming home from a full day of work and having to invest time to events, emails, vendor meetings, building the website, and so on, can be very difficult.  However, figuring it all out is the beauty of being a business owner and we’ll continue to work hard and enjoy the process.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Flashbar Photo Booth – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Flashbar Photo Booth is a Houston based company striving to enhance your event and guests’ expectations by providing a modern Photo Booth experience. We pride ourselves on the quality of our pictures, custom props, and customer service. We love innovation and pushing technology to new places. Our booth will impress you with its studio grade quality, ease of use and social sharing features.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love Houston because it’s Home. We are born and raised Houston Locals with no plans on leaving anytime soon. If I had to dislike something about Houston, it would be, of course, the TRAFFIC.  As a Houstonian you always have to account for traffic. A 15 minute drive can end up taking an hour!
