Hospitality Photoshoot Overview

We had the opportunity to conduct a two-day hotel photoshoot of the luxury hospitality brand resort for Kohler, who supplied the majority of the bathroom fixtures and fittings for the luxury hotel. Or shot list included the Arrival Area, Lobby, one category of room, suite, and villa, the three swimming pools, lockers rooms, and public toilets. These all had to be shot during normal business operations with minimal disturbance to any of the guests, which meant we were unable to close any of the swimming pools during the best natural light for photos.

The Resort Photos

Resort Shooting and Takeaways

Besides the photoshoot challenges encountered because of the tight schedule, this hotel photoshoot was one of the smoothest I have ever conducted. I put this down to the experience and preparation of Am and Kaew from the Andaz Marketing Team. I have mentioned this on multiple occasions, but I am truly grateful and appreciate the amount of work that the Marketing Team needs to put in before, during, and after a hotel photoshoot. An experienced Marketing Team makes such a difference to the process of photos hooting and ultimately the final hotel pictures.

Since we need to work in the photoshoot with the normal day-to-day running of the luxury resort, we needed to be a little creative in the timing and compositions of the resort images. The “sunset/twilight” photo of the Arrival Area needed to be shot first thing in the morning as there was no way to keep this area empty  at 5:00 to 6:00 pm.

Since the resort had already finished a full hotel photoshoot, we did not want to duplicate any of the hotel photos, as they would not have been of much value to the hotel. Since the previous photography crew had already shot the most obvious angles, we had to be a little more creative and search for new and better compositions, instead of taking the easy way out and shooting from the most obvious angle.  

I think it is good to be forced to look at a scene differently and, in some way, be forced to find and shoot different compositions. I think in the future, when dialing in the composition, I will take a step back and try and find something better and more creative.
