Starting Point

The journey of every hotel shoot starts with an on site meeting with the owner and manager – lots of talking and listening so we understand fully the ‘message’ our clients want to convey. We then translate that message into a series of agreed concepts ie relaxed elegance, traditional excellence, renowned cuisne – and marry those ideas with a proposed shooting list. It’s a team effort but the client very much drives the process.

As with every hotel, we began with a meeting at the hotel to see at first hand what was involved and listened carefully to the "message" the Owner and Manager wanted us to convey. After that, we came up with a series of concepts along with a shooting list.

We then take quite ‘reference shots’. They help jog our memory when we leave the hotel to work on the shooting list and they show just how unkind the camera can be when photographing interiors!

The reality is you need lighting, styling and art direction to produce beautiful images.
