As Greek photographers, we spend much of our time in photographing hotels in the Greek islands as well as in mainland. So we leapt at the opportunity to take professional hotel photos for the beautiful Country Club Hotel in Karpenisi. Rather than merely being a backdrop to a wonderful day, hotel photography puts the building and its decor firmly in focus. It is an exciting challenge to capture the atmosphere of a hotel and convey it to potential guests. 

The Country Club Hotel from rising group of Across Hotels, is on the Central Greek mainland, in a lovely small village called Mikro Chorio, surrounded by mountains and forests. If you did not know you were in Greece, you could almost picture yourself as in the Swiss Alps or a Colorado ski resort, as the hotel has the atmosphere of a luxurious lodge. The red and green interior echoes the natural landscape, while the panelled wood ceilings, stone walls and roaring fireplaces are reminiscent of a ski chalet. See more…

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. See more…

It is the role of a photographer to create professional hotel images that allow potential guests to imagine themselves in the picture, waking up after a sound night’s sleep in the comfortable bed, relaxing in the lounge with their favourite drink, or soaking limbs weary from an exciting day of sightseeing in the bath. Small family run hotels like the Fairway in London have to work hard to compete with larger, well-known chains, so when the owner asked me to take his London hotel photos, I was happy to oblige.

One of the main challenges of this kind of photography is creating a complete image of the room to allow guests to mentally step inside. Including all of a room’s features without creating any wide angle distortion requires skill and specialist lenses. I relied on my Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L and the EF 11-24mm f/4L full frame lenses to do these charming bedrooms justice, applying my experience to edit the perspective lines to minimise any distortion resulting from the wide-angle lense.

I was delighted to accept when the Hotel Olympic Sidirokastro in Greece asked me to provide them with contemporary professional photos that they could use in their printed marketing material and on their website.

An online presence is vital for hotels as a growing number of travellers are booking accommodation online, either directly with the hotel or through a third-party booking site. High-quality photos are imperative, and we always start with a thorough consultation with the hotel’s owner or manager, to determine how they want to promote themselves to potential guests and what they believe their best attributes or unique selling points (USPs) are. For the Olympic Hotel and Spa, it was that they offered the relaxed atmosphere of a spa resort in a town location, offering guests the best of both worlds. See more…
