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.

THE BENEFITS OF PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY FOR ARCHITECTS

My architecture photography, is focused on capturing the aesthetic and intention of a structure in the most interesting and unique way possible. I really must understand the architect’s design intent to fully capture some amazing moments of the particular structure.

I can capture the distinct character and art of a structure for an architect designed project.

I can create images that are as bold and imaginative as the structure itself. Architects put so much thought, time, and energy into their designs.

GOOD PHOTOGRAPHY IS IMPORTANT IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

We are an image-obsessed society with extremely short attention spans. Images are registered and processed in the brain automatically. Showcasing the client’s building is a privilege and I treat it as such.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much time does a typical photo shoot require?

I work with a half day or full day photo shoot. Should any specialty shots such as twilights or low-level aerials be requested I typically need an additional hour of access to the property. There are no short cuts to obtaining the level of quality my clients have come to expect. It is a time consuming and laborious process but one that I approach with passion and enthusiasm every time.

How long does it take to get the photos delivered once the shoot is finished?

In most cases I am able to deliver a final product within 7 days. Should more time be required due to the size of the photo shoot the client will be informed before the shoot takes place.

How will the photos be delivered?

Once completed, I deliver my photos via my gallery portal on my website. Typically, a .ZIP file and .MP4 for video. My goal is to make obtaining the finished photos as easy and convenient as possible for the client.

Will my photos look as good as the photos on your website and other marketing materials?

Yes. The photos presented on my website are actual images delivered to my clients. Every client receives the same attention to detail and professionalism that I have built my reputation on.

If I accept your assignment rest assured your images will look just as good as what you have seen so far. Your satisfaction is guaranteed or I will do what it takes to make it right.

What is your rescheduling policy?

Due to the nature of this type of photography service, there are occasions where it is necessary to reschedule. Rescheduling requests made by the client within 24 hours of the appointment time may be subject to a rescheduling fee. In the event of inclement weather or the prospect of less than ideal shooting conditions, I will offer an alternative appointment time at no penalty to the client.

Does someone need to be present at the project location at the time of the shoot?

No. I typically work alone but architects, homeowners, stylist, etc. are more than welcome to be present. In regards to gaining access to the property, arrangements will need to be made to allow me entry. Furthermore, commercial work require arrangements be made in advance for me to enter the property. This may involve liaising with security and janitor staff to ensure access and lighting and other features are operational.

Do you do your own post production and editing or do you contract that work out?

I am proud to say that I do all my post production and editing. 

Do you use supplemental on-site lighting or only available light?

Both. I have both lightweight and studio strobes as well umbrellas and softboxes. All shots are taken to make the best use of available light but I can and will use supplemental lighting should the occasion call for it.

Do I have copyrights to the photos once I have paid?

No. I retain all copyrights expressed and implied otherwise. I grant a license in which the client may use the photos for their purpose they wish provided they do not violate the copyright by selling, leasing or gifting the photos to third parties. The license is granted to the person that paid for the photos. If the architect paid, the architect gets the license.

For full information regarding licensing and usage please contact me directly. If the client wishes to have ownership and copyright transferred (a buy-out), please contact me for a quote.

Can I use the photos on my website or other marketing that does not pertain to the subject property?

Yes. The license does allow you to use the photos to advertise you or your services in addition to marketing the subject property. In the event the client wishes to use any of the images in this manner, photo credit must be clearly given somewhere on the photo or page in which they appear. Failure to do this may void the license granted by the copyright holder. Once the license expires, arrangements must be made to extend the license. The license is a single user license. Images may not be used by third parties without my written consent (via a license).

Processed work will be delivered in a timely fashion (generally within 7 days), within a mutually agreed-upon schedule. Real Visuals Media Pty Ltd is granted total artistic control over the final image.

Post production includes editing (layering and compositing, colour cast correction, lens distortion correction and perspective (verticals) adjustment where necessary. Minor shadow and imperfection cleanup.

Retouching is at my discretion. Retouching means correcting various elements in an image that the client would like changed, such as: removing various elements such as driveway oil stains, water splashes, ceiling devices and some vents, egress signs, spots on paintwork, and fluff on carpets and curtains and furniture, etc. Real Visuals Media Pty Ltd is known for its magazine quality imagery and light retouching is always applied if needed as quoted. Any additional retouching requested by the client will be quoted on a case-by-case basis. Retouching may incur extra charges at $45.00 per 15 minute block.
