Excellent hotel Photography is crucial for your business. People process images faster than words, meaning that the photos on your website are what potential guests will base their first impressions on. If you don’t capture their attention with your images it doesn’t matter how good your services or how convincing your words, they will quickly move on.

As an hotel Photographer of many years experience I know there is nothing more important that lighting for both interior Photography, and architectural Photography. Different sides of a building may require different types of light to show them at their best. For example, direct sunlight on a bright day could make the facade of your hotel look amazing, or it could cast hard shadows and give a terrible result, in which case it would be better to shoot at a different time of day.

A night shot of your hotel is an absolute must, especially if you have effective outdoor lighting. Often these shots are best done during what I call the golden minutes – the twenty minutes after sunrise and before sunset, when natural light is at its most flattering for both buildings and people. While mid-day-time exterior Photography can be difficult if your facade has large areas of glass or windows, night-time adds a dimension of glamour and sophistication to your hotel.
