Fotomat specialises in monochrome shots. Because let’s be real: black and white pics never go out of style. If you’re into monochrome aesthetics (and can never quite get over your awkwardness in front of photographers), this is the place for you. Enjoy 15 minutes of unlimited photo-taking, bring home two printed photos from the session on the same day as part of the $30 package, and show ’em off! Oh, and the studio’s so popular it even has a second outlet.
