I am the contracted hotel photographer for Travelodge, supplying their hotel photography requirements throughout the UK. Working closely with the brand & marketing departments I photograph new hotel opening’s and refurbishments, and new product launches for the hotel interior such as the Super Room and Standard Room. A virtual tour of the SuperRoom was also provided. I have supplied over 500 hotel photography photoshoots for Travelodge since starting work together in 2015. It would be great to explore luxury hotel photography opportunities with your hotel, whether independent, boutique or large national hotel chain and become your chosen professional hotel photographer in London and across the UK or Europe.
Great hotel interior photography is vital in marketing your hotel. Especially in the current climate, when guests like to see all aspects of the hotel before they book. I can photograph your luxury hotel at any time of year, although Spring and Summer is always ideal. The exterior shots are best shot at dawn or dusk. I’d then move on to covering the lifestyle of the hotel interior facilities before working on the bedrooms. It helps the interior styling to have some props available. These are usually, wine glasses, tea and coffee, books and newspapers, technology such as laptops and phones – this really adds to the lifestyle and professional appeal of the hotel photography. I work across the UK providing professional hotel photography to all types of clients in the hotel industry. I’d love to be your luxury hotel photographer anywhere in the UK and Europe, and explore the possibilities in your hotel interior.
Being a professional hotel photographer in London or anywhere in the UK requires planning and preparation to achieve the best possible hotel photography for marketing your hotel and highlighting the hotel interior. So how do I photograph a hotel? Firstly, the hotel still needs to be able to operate as normal. I’d love to have the hotel to myself but understand we have to work around guests whilst the hotel photography is taking place. Whether it is the F&B areas, gym and spa areas, conference rooms, gardens and reception – we will work out a timetable to access these areas and achieve the best hotel interior photography possible.
Each hotel has a different budget for hotel photography. It can allow for smaller photoshoots of 1 day, or a large-scale photoshoot which could last up-to a week. To make full use of the time available, we utilise the hotel staff to prepare and clean each area before the hotel photographers are ready to start. This saves the hotel photographers a lot of time and saves the hotel money as we can fit more hotel interior photography into the given time. Providing hotel interior photography is a wonderful part of my job. The hotels are beautifully styled and cleaned to perfection, allowing myself as your hotel photographer to spend more time capturing high quality professional hotel photography. Your hotel interior photography should be simple and elegant, showing the interior that prospective visitors can see themselves enjoying their holiday or business stay in.
Professional hotel photography is a true art-form where luxury and lifestyle need to combine into effortless and realistic photography. When hiring me as your hotel photographers, I will endeavour to provide luxury hotel photography that can be used to promote your hotel for years to come. The key elements of your hotel will vary depending on the brand, there are features that all guests will expect, such as a comfortable bed, modern bathroom and visually appealing public areas. Other guests may expect a spa, indoor pool and gymnasium. As you luxury hotel photographer we will capture all these features perfectly, so that the guests can visualise themselves within your hotel interior.
We’d also like to get some fabulous shots of the hotel staff working and interacting with guests where possible to add to the lifestyle appeal. You will need happy and smiling staff going about their day and enjoying the moment. As your professional hotel photographer I will look to actively engage with the staff to achieve this. Although your hotel interior is the most important aspect you still need great, eye-catching exterior photography of the hotel. This is great for the website, portals, search engines and brochures. We can shoot at different times of the day and night to get great hotel photography.
Professional hotel photography needs to answer all your guests questions about the rooms and facilities, including the hotel lobby, guest rooms – covering all room and suite types. Meeting and conference facilities, business lounge, the ballroom (set up for functions). Professional hotel photography comes at a price, but luxury and lifestyle hotel photography will add to your bookings and pay for itself in no time.
