Resort & Hotel Photography

Resort & Hotel Photography

Recently I have ventured into a new area of photography…… Resort and Hotel Photography!

While sitting in yet another Resort room one evening while away on a landscape shoot, editing photos and sipping a cold one. I looked at my surroundings thinking I was a pretty lucky girl to do what I do and noting how nice and cosy the room was. I decided to get my camera out my bag and snap a shot to show the hubby how I had to “rough it” while I was away.

After I got home and edited the photo an idea struck me…….. What if I did this as a paid job while travelling for my own photography purposes? My trips involve only photography anyway, so I would have all the time in the world to photograph the entire resort and rooms that a client could want.

So I set my mind to studying this new style and then offered my services for free to a number of places to get into the swing of it. My advantage was, I was able to offer phenomenal landscape images of local attractions for them to add to their sites, making the area a place people just have to visit.

It is a well known fact that GOOD photography of a hotel or resort leads to more business. A person looking to go on vacation sees a picture that looks warm and inviting and can instantly see themselves there. It also needs to look roomy which good photography can always create. I myself always browse the online images before choosing where I stay. Some locations also require photos of the surrounding beaches, wildlife and activities etc to help sell a place, which my being a landscape photographer can also help you out with.

A couple of weeks ago I was hired to photograph a holiday house in Jervis Bay called Callala Beachfront. I took the whole family and not only were the photos fantastic but we had a great time as well. My job was to photograph the house and the local area, including people enjoying activities on the beach, local tennis courts etc.

Take a look at some of the images from the trip.

These are just a few of the examples. All in all the owner received 55 images on a USB to use on his website and STAYZ site and any other media he requires.

I am really enjoying this new venture and have four more bookings in the next 2 months. Being a mother means I have to limit the amount of bookings I take so I am now taking bookings for August-September 2014. If you own/manage a resort, hotel, caravan park, or holiday house and require some good photography to highlight how fantastic your accommodation is, please call me on 0431869100.

      Hi There! It would depend on how much or how little you need photographed. Please email me at beck@beckdunnphotography with a basic outline of what you would need and where you are located. some things I need to know are… 1) How big is your property (how many rooms etc) 2) do you require models in shots around the grounds (by pool, using facilities, in restaurants)? 3) how many rooms you would like photographed? 4) do you require some local attractions shot? Once I have this information I can give you an accurate quote. Thank you 🙂
