THE BENEFITS OF PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY FOR HOTEL & HOSPITALITY

HOTEL

In most cases you only have a short amount of time to “make the sale” online and usually the traffic that comes to your website are people who have never been to your property before, these people are going to decide whether or not to book with you based off the quality of the photos that they see on your site.

It is important to communicate to people the services and unique features you offer through good photography, as it is fast and easy for the consumer.

Photography on location

I have photographed many hotels and resorts to capture the whole story of each property, from the landscaping of the grounds to the finer details of what is being served in the restaurants and the quality of the linen in the rooms. I understand that these images will be used for your website and gather the quantity of images required to have a website filled with great photos that don’t repeat, so every page has its own unique set of visuals.

HOSPITALITY

Hospitality photography is about more than simply taking pretty pictures of your hotel. It is designed to capture the very essence of your hotel. It brings together the intangible qualities of the space by setting the mood.

With the majority of table bookings coming from online sources, it has never been more important to have high quality photography. And not just on your website. You prospective guests will be looking at your images and it is important that your marketing images inspire them to want to see more. Your photography not only needs to encapsulate the beauty, comfort and atmosphere of your space, it also needs to tell your story.

How much does it cost?

I charge a full-day rate or half-day rate – time spend on set (typically 4 hours or 8 hours), bump-in and bump out depends on the food type, space available and acsess
pre-production – brand / concept development, planning and scheduling
post-production covers image editing, retouching and portal delivery

How many images can expect to get from a one-day shoot?
In our standard 4 hour half-day, including bumping in, a short break and bump-out, with thorough preparation and depending on the complexity of the dishes:
90 mins bump-in and setup, and pre-light
4 hours mobile studio session
30 mins bump-out
I estimate for each photo it takes approx 15 – 30 mins per composition = between 8 and 16 finished photos.
In our 8 hour day, including bumping in, a short lunch break and bump-out, with thorough preparation and depending on the complexity of the dishes:
90 mins bump-in and setup, and pre-light
8 hours mobile studio session
30 mins bump-out
I estimate for each photo it takes approx 15 – 30 mins per composition = between 16 and 32 finished photos.
