Photography for Hotels
I have always had an admiration for good architecture. I also love people.
Hotel photography is a unique blend of architectural photography and people photography. It also requires quite a lot of planning, forethought, and technique.
Lighting inside the average room is seldom even and many of the hotel images I see on websites are over exposed in the lights and windows. This of course reflects on the hotel. To light rooms correctly can take hours of preparation and software post-production work.
Another important issue is straight lines. To get a whole room into a shot usually requires a very wide-angle lens. Wide-angle lenses tend to distort lines and give images curves. This can only be avoided using very special lenses and postproduction correction.
Before a shoot I spend considerable time with clients discussing concept and needs, as well as envisioning the final image.
By the time it comes to the shoot I already know pretty much what we want the final images to look like. At that time it is just a matter of putting the lights in the right place, setting up and go.
With each angle we usually shoot a couple of variations. That's the easy bit, then comes the selection. Out of several thousand images, the client and we then select a handful of the best images to work on in postproduction. We remove blemishes, straighten lines, even out lighting, tidy up the model (if there was one) and in some cases even replace skies!!
When you use my services, you are not just getting the click of the button, but a whole creative process from beginning to end.
Getting the best photos for your hotel or resort requires team-work. We will help you with organizing staff team meetings and even Skype in if needs be in order to prepare your team for the shoot.
