The Future of Photo Experiences


Photo experiences are becoming staples at all types of events, from weddings to birthdays, holiday parties to conferences, and stadiums to nationwide tours. Get a crash course in designing or choosing the best photo experiences for your events, determining the most effective types of content to be created and shared, and learn how to use these experiences to generate more revenue, increase engagement, and most importantly, allow your guests to have FUN with your brand.

Join us in June at Fremont Foundry to gain a little insight into the future of Photo Experiences. Sam Eitzen, owner of The SnapBar, will share his wealth of knowledge on where the industry is today, how to best fit photo experiences into your events, and where the industry might be headed. 

Say cheese and we will see you in June...



Our Speaker


Sam Eitzen, Owner - The SnapBar

Sam is a college dropout turned serial entrepreneur. Together with his brother and co-founder, Joe, he’s built one of the fastest growing photo experience companies on the West Coast. With a team of 30+ SnapBar staff and hubs in Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles, they’re goal is to build ‘the Starbucks’ of photo experience companies and plan to expand their services and product lines to cities across the country. To date, The SnapBar has had the privilege of working thousands of events for private clients and many top brands to create incredible photo experiences for their guests, teams, and customers. Their products, customer service, and focus on logistics has allowed them to execute 20+ events in a single day in the same city. This depth, as well as their expansion to new cities, has led to much of their growth and popularity among organizations like Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Inc. Magazine, McDonalds, and more who need vendors that can handle complexity, scale, and rapidly changing event environments.

The building which now houses Fremont Foundry Events was opened in 1981 as a hub for Fremont's eclectic artist community and played a special part in Seattle's art focused counterculture. 

From educational conferences to holiday galas and immersive themed events, prominent organizations such as Microsoft, Tableau Software, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation entrust Fremont Foundry to provide support and resources their planners need to execute successful events.

Our unconventional facility is retrofitted with modern technology, and offers convenient in house amenities that supplement ease of production.
