Calgary's Selfie Studio Has 30 Backdrops And Photographers To Take Your Photos

Creating stunning Instagram portraits that everyone will like can be tough. This might mean you are always searching for stunning spots to take your next photo. To help you out you need to check out Calgary's selfie studio that just opened this winter.

Throughout the year, there are often temporary pop-ups that are sure to dazzle your followers. Calgary will be getting a giant floating moon and a whimsical "Alice In Wonderland" tea that will look great, but they're only around for a short time.

While temporary pop-ups are fun, there is now a new permanent spot to take all your selfies. SNAP Foto Club is a 4,000-square-foot studio with 30 backdrops that you can use.

If you are always searching for those angel wing murals, make sure to stop by the space in downtown Calgary. You'll be able to take your portraits with neon and golden angel wings.

Right now, some of the other scenes include a pink flower wall, a peacock tail, a tub filled with rose petals, and cheerful sunflowers.

Plus, you can use one of their professional "Instagram husbands." They're photographers that are on hand to help you capture the perfect shot and they'll take direction without getting exasperated just like a real Instagram husband.

While having great backdrops helps you to slay your Instagram game, that isn't all you will need. Inside they have light rings and DSLR cameras that you can rent too.

Having in-house photographers means you don't need to drag your friend to take all your snapshots.

This extra service is cheap too. At the end of your visit, you can buy the images for $1 per picture.

To help ensure the space doesn't get crowded, there is a limited number of tickets per day.
