Chances are you’ve never taken a selfie like this.
A new selfie photo studio in Metro Vancouver is giving snapshot lovers the chance to take studio-quality selfies, complete with pro lighting, DSLR-camera-quality images and elaborate props and backdrops.
The Selfie Room is a new business located in Richmond, on the site of Trapped, an “escape gaming” complex where people pay to break out of themed rooms. (More on that here.) It’s inspired by similar offerings in Hong Kong, where the “selfie industry” is already booming. The idea is that guests can come in, choose from an array of backdrops and costumes, then take their own studio-quality images, no photographer required.
