Be Seen. Be Remembered.
Inviting people to imagine what they would see, think and feel if they were to experience the space in person.
I specialize in architectural and design photography, capturing interiors and exteriors for the hotel and resort industry. My experience is comprehensive—from photographing guest rooms to meeting rooms, ballrooms, lobbies, pools and other common (and not-so-common) areas.
Scouting, including preparation of a shot list
Styling and staging
Post-production processing, editing and retouching
Electronic file delivery and archiving
What's it like to work together?
You'll find the process to be easy, and the results to meet or even exceed your expectations.
I like to keep things comfortable, straightforward and professional. It all begins with a conversation about your location and property, shooting dates, and how many finished images you want to capture. From our discussion, I will prepare a written estimate for your consideration. With your approval, we'll schedule a date to meet for scouting and a walk-through. Then we'll set a date for shooting.
THINGS TO KNOW
I'll want you or your representative to be onsite for the shoot or at least part of the shoot. This ensures we capture everything you need, and we do it efficiently with minimal disruption.
I'll bring an assistant. Or two. This ensures the shoot is completed as efficiently as possible.
We come well equipped. We don't rely exclusively on technology to make images what they should be. We use our equipment and experience to capture as much as possible "in the moment." So yes, we'll be bringing more than a camera and tripod—I consider it one of the marks of a photographer who's been doing this for awhile.
We'll be considerate of your property and your image. We perform our work with the least interruption to your guests and staff. And while we may move things around a bit to accommodate the best composition, when we are finished we will leave your space as we found it.
We carry insurance. While it's unlikely there will be an issue (isn't that the premise of all insurance policies?), insurance to cover liability and property damage is in place—just in case. I can provide a certificate of coverage within 24 hours for any client or property.
Why choose us?
We understand architecture and design, and know how to capture hotel and resort properties in a way that promotes bottom line results.
With fifteen years of focus on architectural and design photography comes a comprehensive understanding of the hotel and resort industry—an industry that is highly competitive, and one in which photography plays a significant role in setting the right tone, establishing the right image, and attracting the guests you need to drive bottom line results.
We understand how to approach the three-dimensional spaces that are all around us, and translate them into two dimensional images without sacrificing the depth that makes them so enticing. We understand what makes a good photograph, from composition to lighting, to styling and staging, to understanding the intricacies and capabilities of every piece of equipment we carry. We know how to lead the eye through an image, that less is often more, and appreciate the difference 15 minutes can make when the sun is directing part of our shot.
EASY TO WORK WITH
From initial communication, to understanding your goals, to capturing and delivering images that showcase your property in the best possible way, we will make the process easy–even enjoyable–for you. The calm demeanor you notice when we meet is the same persona you'll see on the photo shoot. We've been doing this long enough to know what to anticipate, how to respond, and what to do to ensure the best images possible.
