Hotel and Resort Photography

Within the photography industry, the area of Hotel and Resort Photography has blossomed beautifully in recent years. We have technology and the increased use of the internet to thank for much of that. Hotels and resorts need professionally taken, top-quality images to grace the pages of their website (in particular, the accommodation pages which tend to generate the highest amount of traffic). Going with a photographer with proven experience and skills in interior photography is a must if a client hopes to receives images that will help to convert website visitors into actual guests. Expert interior photographers employ simple rules and concepts to their work that set them apart from others. Two of the concepts are “depth” and ‘framing” and they are clearly illustrated in the photo above. A two-dimensional picture becomes more pleasing to the eye when it more accurately represents the actual scene that is being photographed. That is, when the quality of depth is added. Depth suggests that there is a foreground, middle ground and background in the image. The pictured room is at the palatial Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara, located in the Rub' al Khali, or Empty Quarter, on the Arabian Peninsula. Layers of depth are added to the room in this photo moving the eyes from the open doorway and back towards the source of light streaming into the tub. The positioning of the rolled towels creates some amount of overlap in the layers, helping to accentuate them even more. The other concept applied to this example of Hotel and Resort Photography is framing. The tub is undoubtedly the focal point of this picture. In order to ensure that it appears that way to the viewer’s eyes, the angle of the picture allows the jutting walls and handles to frame the tub – invitingly!
