These days, everything seems to exist in your phone’s camera roll. Yet, nothing can quite beat the sensorial tangibilities of holding a snapshot of a moment in time right in your hand. Dotted all around the city, and even tucked away right in the Jewel Changi Airport itself, travellers will have their pick of photo booths and self-photo studios to capture their memories. 

From the classic photo booths to squeeze yourself into, to kitted-out self-photo studios with props and costumes for that unique snapshot, here are some awesome spots to immortalise your Singapore moment.

1. Dollop Automat Studio

For those looking for freedom to craft their photo booth experience at every stage, Dollop Automat Studio is the perfect spot for you.  If you’ve seen those aesthetic Korean photobooth photos, you already know what to expect. 

Opt from light or dark prints, and even have the choice of having your photos in full technicolour or timeless black and white. When it’s your turn, just press the shutter button in your hand to capture your best poses.

Book your slots ahead of time and make sure to arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than your slot so that you have enough time to be briefed by the studio’s assistants. That, and so there’s enough time to cool off from the humid Singapore weather so you’re photo-ready.

Cost: $30 for two pax, 15 minutes, unlimited photos
Address: #02-21 Bras Basah Complex, 231 Bain Street, Singapore 180231

They have themed studios, modelled after Changi Airport and our MRT stations!  There are more than just the regular straight-on angles available— try fish eye, and low angle, which are popular among the Gen Zs. Talk about unique flairs. Solace Studios is also one of the very few fur-baby-inclusive self-photography studios in Singapore.

Life4Cut is a mecca for K-pop enthusiasts who have come from far and wide to bask in the glow of their bright and colourful backdrops and have their pick of the trendiest costumes, props, and accessories.

Keep your eyes on their socials because there may be limited-edition K-pop-themed frames that allow you to pose alongside your biases. Previous groups featured here have included Tomorrow x Together, Twice, and Seventeen.

5. Fotoautomat

Take a spin in Singapore’s only photochemical booth for a blast from the past. Refurbished and specially flown in from the United States, this 40-year-old Fotoautomat is a special treat for vintage lovers or lovers of vintage things. 

What makes the photos taken here unique is the way it is how it is developed. Each photo taken is exposed directly onto a film strip, frame by frame as it is taken. It takes 4 minutes to fully develop the film strip as it goes through a process called dip and dunk, where the strip goes through a series of chemical washes right inside the machine.

There are no frills or fuss with Fotoautomat – what you see is what you get. They only print in black and white, so while you’re hanging around waiting for your film strip, why not check out the surrounding deco of The Projector and maybe see what’s showing? 

Cost: $4 per strip, and it only accepts $1 coins
Address: The Projector, 6001 Beach Road, #05-00, Golden Mile Tower Singapore 199589

6. National Museum of Singapore Photo Booth

One of the most budget-friendly photo booths in Singapore, the photo booth at the National Museum of Singapore is a cute way to remember your time in this hallowed institution. 

There aren’t any props for you to use, but you can opt for the filters and effects to help jazz up your pictures. The booth itself comfortably fits two, but if you’re willing to squeeze, three is doable. 

This photo booth only accepts 2-dollar notes, so remember to come prepared. You can even add another $2 for a video recording of your time in the booth,  for a moving memento to remember your visit to the museum. 

Keep your eyes peeled because from time to time, the booth will be decked out in a themed decoration like how it was for the Doraemon Exhibition 

Cost: From $2 per photo
