Your Hotel Marketing Photos Are A Big Deal
Hotel Photography has the mission to go beyond capturing the bedrooms and communal zones of the property. The aim is to capture the very essence of a property. Hotels tend to get evaluated mostly online these days – and within a few seconds. Each photo should be targeted to connect with the type of guest that the hotel is trying to reach. Professional hotel photography helps you in your marketing efforts and increase your bookings.
How Is The Process Like?
Step 1: Contact
Just send me an email via the contact page of my website or direct to email@example.com. Or call me at +66(0)972024107 to arrange a shooting date, and if necessary to make an appointment for a meeting at your property to inspect the hotel and discuss your needs and what to focus on during the shooting. At the meeting, we can discuss what look you are going for, if you have any particular shots in mind, how many items will be shot, and so on to create an official shot list.
Step 2: Prepare the shoot
Prepare your hotel rooms and facilities and make them look tidy for the best possible results. Please read my little guide on Hotel Shooting Preparation Guide
Step 3: The Shooting Day
The shooting duration is between 1 day to multiple days, depending on the size of your property. It needs close cooperation of your housekeeping team to take care of the right preparation of the rooms and beds during the shooting. It is VERY important that ALL team members on your end are informed and prepared for the day of the shoot.
When will I Get My Edited Photos?
After the photos are shot and the post-production is done, I will deliver them using a Google Drive link. You will receive the link via email with all your photos from 5 working days to 2 weeks, depending on the number of images. All of my shoots include one round of revisions if you require some changes on the final images at no extra cost.
Can You Fix That In Photoshop?
Most likely, yes. For hotel shots, if there’s anything that you would like to be altered, removed, replaced, or adjusted (common requests include the removal of cords, change of window views, removal of fire alarms, sprinklers, cracks, and anything not specified in the original design), let me know ahead of time and I can get it taken care of for you quite easily. The post-production process also includes extensive retouching of beds to make them look clean and wrinkle-free.
Does The Hotel Need To Be Closed For The Shooting?
No, not at all! I am fairly good at working around the surroundings. I will be always very keen on not disturbing your guest during the shooting. Keep in mind that certain public areas like pool, lobby, and gym will be maybe not accessible for a short period during those areas are getting photographed.
Can I Postpone The Shooting Date?
Sure, if anything happens, please contact me 24 hours before the shoot, we can reschedule it. On the actual shooting date or if I have already arrived at your property the full agreed compensation for the shooting has to be paid. Please read under paragraph 3 of my Business Terms & Conditions for more details.
What Are Your Terms Of Payment?
The payment can be done directly on the shooting day in cash or bank transfer. Alternatively, the payment can be done after the watermarked low-resolution images are delivered to you for your approval. After your approval of the photos and the shooting fee has been transferred. I will send you the unwatermarked and high-resolution images.
Hotel Photography Should Appeal & Reveal
Hotel photography must be a principal focus of the marketing strategy within the hospitality industry. The shots need to create a feeling and connect, expressing what kind of experience your guests will have during their stay. People look online for visuals of what will be offered at the hotel. Beyond the textual content, photos create the first impression of the hotel for travelers. Professional photos accurately depicting the hotel’s exterior, lobby, guestrooms, restaurants, recreational areas, and other features the hotel may offer can make all the difference.
