Hotel Photoshoot Art Director
I spent several years art-directing new hotel developments, and hotel renovation photoshoots for Hyatt Hotels Corporation. I’ve art-directed more than 40 corporate photoshoots in the US, Caribbean, Canada and Hawaii and know exactly the angles to shoot to improve your hotel’s visibility and move it up a notch, which means an increase in bookings in this ever-competitive world of hotel business.
Photoshoots have included business hotels, city-destination hotels, luxurious resorts and boutique properties. Spaces included bedrooms, suites, meeting spaces, conference facilities, Signature shots, leisure facilities including pools, golf courses, spa treatment centers, resort aerials, children activity areas; restaurants including chef and culinary shots, and service shots highlighting Front Desk, Concierge, Housekeeping, Restaurant, and Bellhop services. I know my hotels.
If it’s an atmosphere you need, I’ve staged lifestyle shots for advertisement use for romance, weddings, banquets, brunches, weekends, business, business lunches, business meetings, single/couple/family holidays, food – I even helped a food stylist create a visually delicious, but completely inedible turkey for Thanksgiving – all placed on a lovely table setting in front of a roaring fireplace! Some of the images I art directed have appeared in Conde Nast Magazine.
I’ve worked with some of the best architectural photographers in the industry whose work continues to be featured in Architectural Digest. This Gallery is a sampling of some of the shots that I art directed, from picking angles to staging of the shot. Am happy to work with you to organize your new launch, renovation or simply an update photoshoot.
I work with or without local models at your discretion and have hired them on hourly, day-rate, or for a resort, a buy-out of their time. I also set up the shots using pieces already available on property or will buy what’s needed, if necessary. I am known to have personally ironed a table cloth or 20 for a banquet shot, as well as do the same for a duvet cover. I really hate wrinkles in a shot!
Why pay for the add-ons of an expensive Advertising or Marketing agency? I have a simple, modest day rate, and the photos are ‘at cost’ based on the local or international photographer rates. You own outright usage.
