How We Work

 

Hotel Photography that sells Rooms

Hi, We’re Solutionists

We are hotel photographers who create engaging and dynamic images designed to book more rooms, entice guests to the restaurant and start the conversation with the meeting planner. We believe that hotel photography, created with in depth knowledge of the industry, a marketer's sensibility and an artist's eye, is a far more effective sales tool. Creating effective hospitality images is part photography and part emotional alchemy. We specialize in combining them while being responsive to each properties unique marketing points.

How We Work

A pretty picture is nice, but a pretty picture that generates higher sales is really what we're after. The photographs of your hotel tell its' story at a glance and are the most effective method of engaging with your prospective guests. Your audience has become visually voracious, sophisticated and they seek answers from your content. Engage them and they will convert from browsers to bookers. To do this effectively we create hotel photography that entices the viewer and is curated to your audience. While we are photographers, our job is to raise ADR, sell more rooms, book more events and draw guests to the dining room. For perspective on the value of having top notch hotel photography, check out our Dollars and Sense section and plug your own numbers into our ROI calculator.


Who We Are

We are a partnership between two highly experienced hospitality photographers. We combine decades of advertising and hospitality experience with artistry and technical knowledge to create images that win bookings for our clients. Depending on the nature and size of the project we may shoot a project individually or together and are backed up by a team of ninja retouchers who specialize in making hospitality images shine. With the experience of hundreds of hotel and resort shoots on our resume we have the solutions to most challenges.

Straight Forward Rates

One of the most frequently asked questions is "what does it cost?". People want a clear answer, so we have rates that eliminate any surprises. We charge fixed rates per shot, that pro-rate based on the number of shots in the project. Our per shot rates include all expenses for most shoots, including pre-production, travel to and from the property and retouching. This makes our proposals and bills easy to read and understand.

Pictures mean a thousand words and they have done a great job showcasing our hotels. They are great to work with during the process. With hotels being open 24 hours, they have been flexible with our needs to work around guests and changes in shots.
