Combining upcycled, vintage components with the latest digital touch screen photographic technology, Flicksbox is the brainchild of husband and wife team, Phil and Andie Hill.

The open-air photo booth can produce digital photos as well as videos and animated files, and is the result of six months of construction and refurbishment from the couple's home-based workshop in St Ives.

Phil Hill says: "The inspiration for creating this photo booth came from a DIY set-up we put together at our own wedding. It was so popular with our guests that we decided to create something distinctive and aesthetically pleasing."

Commenting on the various components which make Flicksbox so unique, Andie Hill continues: “The tripod is an old theodolite stand from the 1930s which has been completely restored to reveal its original features. This alone took more than one and a half months. Sitting on this is a seamless brushed-steel and mahogany wooden box which houses the digital photographic wizardry. The main source of lighting is positioned above the box and comes from a vintage heat lamp which we found locally and completely rewired.”
