Meet Mario Washington of DMG Photo Booth Rental in Ventura

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mario Washington.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Mario. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
In 2008, I began to think about where I was at that point in my life (multiple jobs, ailing father) when the thought of going back to school to re-educate myself. In the process of my education I learned much about the field of multimedia and front-end web design. As my completion date moved closer I remember a friend from Sacramento asked me to design a logo for his company.

Utilizing what I’ve learned to design his logo, the thought of opening a graphic design business became more inevitable. Once I completed my studies a longtime friend John and I discussed going into business together under the name Digilogo Multimedia Group, LLC. The discussion went well and all the necessary paperwork was drawn up.

After the first (2) years journey we wanted to add a more exciting element to the business but didn’t know what it was we wanted. A friend of ours help land us a videography gig in Beverly Hills to film a small promo commercial and grand opening for the business. At the grand opening is when we were first introduced to the photo booth and as they say “the rest is history”.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s been a bit of a struggle as with anything we as humans do…. Without struggle, there’s no gain!

The transition from a graphic designs business to photo booth business was a bit challenging. As with any business, finding the target market is always difficult. Other challenges we’ve faced was getting out in the public’s eye and direct selling the idea of renting our photo booth. You never want to hear “NO” thousands of times before some say “Hey, I’ll have my picture taken”.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about DMG Photo Booth Rental – what should we know?
We’re a Photo Booth Business based out of Ventura Ca. Our specialty is providing a fun filled day or evening with our booth. Guests can pick a prop, strike a pose and receive the pictures in a matter of seconds. With the new wave of technology, we’re also very current with social media needs within our booth.

We’re proud that our clients have utilized our booth more than once…. That says a lot in itself. Also having a trade secret to make the photo booth a great experience, is what we can say set us apart from the rest.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
What’s most important is communication all the way across the board from our team to our clients. Being personable is KEY…
