It's a wonderful invention, made entirely from cardboard boxes (it's big enough to fit a person inside!) The 'exposure time' takes between 3 - 5 minutes, so we ask customers to be patient and 'hold their poses' as much as possible..
We took The Portlaroid to Portland's 'Last Thursday on Alberta' (big arts based street fair), and to the Pearl's 'First Thursday' (another big art fair). Amber did a marvelous job at playing hostess and rolled up customers left right and centre! People loved it! And, thankfully, loved their pictures too.
Here are some photos we took (digitally) of the events:

|Some happy customers!|
I'm looking forward to taking it out, perhaps in Bristol next.... watch out for a Portlaroid near you!
