Carr Alarm



National treasure Alan Carr is a man of many faces – pouty, endearing, silly, vulnerable, cheeky, sweet etc - all used to great comedic effect. So when Marie Claire needed a suitably interesting photo spread to accompany their Janet Street-Porter interview, they enlisted Boothnation to the cause.
As endearing in person as he is on the telly, Alan had us in fits of laughter as he posed and preened in the booth. Being such a ball of energy, the booth was the perfect capsule to contain and capture him in action. Over 100 shots and he was still pulling new expressions out of the bag!
The Marie Claire team loved the booth so much they booked us for their 20th Birthday party at One Marlyebone Road. A whole host of stars turned up to the event, including the likes of Mischa Barton, Roisin Murphy and Janet Street Porter. Rhys Ifan’s band The Peth played and the Glitter booth wowed the glam crowd with gorgeous black and white portraits and a live projection of the booth images.
