What makes your hotel unique? Does it have an incredible view? Are you proud of your hotel’s seasonal menu, or do you treat guests to handmade artisan chocolates on their pillow? Every business has something they feel makes them stand out. The role of hotel photography is to help you showcase what makes your hotel somewhere guests will want to stay.
In an age where guests are sharing images of their experience even before they get to their room, it is vital that hotels also have control over their narrative. The story is yours to tell, and it starts with a carefully collated collection of images that will help build trust with your guests and secure reservations. As much as guests are interested in your pool’s tropical landscaping or the quality of your cocktail menu, they also want to know what they can expect when they walk into their bedroom. Interior hotel photography requires specialist skill and lenses to give you photos that are the best reflection of your hotel. If a guest’s experience matches what they see on your website, or in directories such as Booking, TripAdvisor, etc, then they are more likely to share their satisfaction with others and become a repeat customer.
A hotel photo shoot lasts, on average, one to three days, plus the time for the image editing. Some of the required subjects to be photographed are interior and exterior aspects, panoramic composing, day and night time shots, close-ups, and often beverage and food photos.

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.
There are always areas a client wants to show off above others. In the instance of the Country Club Karpenisi, it was the spacious public lounge with its fantastic open fireplace, as well as the sumptuous bedrooms. We shot these areas at different times and staged in a variety of ways so that guests can easily imagine themselves using the space whether they are the sort to use the lounge to meet their business clients for coffee, or enjoy a glass of wine and a post-dinner plate of cheese. The same approach goes for the bedrooms, and you will notice that these are set up with the bed turned down, and with the curtains open and a breakfast tray for those who enjoy lazy mornings.
Excellent photography is crucial for your business. People process images faster than words, meaning that the images 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. 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 B&B, apartment or 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.

Here is some examples and common mistakes when shooting hotel interiors and exteriors.
It is our role 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 B & B photos, I was happy to oblige.
One of the main challenges of this kind of work 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.
