Befores and Afters
Interiors are notoriously difficult to photograph. The reality is that rooms which look great to the eye (homes and hotels) suddenly lose their appeal when seen through the camera lens. That's why lighting, composition and styling are paramount.
Below are just a few examples that demonstrate how we make interiors and products look good for the camera.
Bedroom images are often what makes a potential hotel guest decide to press that all important 'book now' button !!
Subtle signs of occupancy - luggage, flowers, room service etc enhance the appeal of a hotel bedroom.
When checking out the location - a wonderful old derelict mill - Marie was delighted to spy this old trolley which she decided would make a funky industrial day bed.
This advertising shot is all about the contrast of beautiful crisp fabrics against an industrial background.
Country House Hotel Shoot
A cosy inviting bar is an important shot - especially in a country setting.
It's all about conveying the sense of 'wanting to be there' - enjoying a drink in front of that cosy fire over a board game.
Fabrics photographed in a home
Sometimes a studio setting works best - but more often than not, there is nothing to beat a real setting.
For many hotels, their food is a major USP. Our goal is not only to capture that but also to convey an intimate, warm and inviting experience.
In this case, we purposely threw the room out of focus to draw the eye to the table in the foreground.
A superb example where new photography made a major impact on bookings.
This is a holiday rental home, located in a prestigious address in Belfast. The home is so much nicer than the images the owners had originally been using on their website. Within 3 months of using our work, their bookings had increased by a whopping 200% !!!
An Extreme Makeover !!!
With a minuscule budget, Marie transformed this home to enable the Client to put it on the market for selling purposes. It turned out so well, Bradley subsequently shot it for a magazine feature - it took a prominent slot in 25 Beautiful Homes and the front cover of Ireland Homes Interiors and Living.
