Michelle says: “Hotels thrill me; I love the whole experience – the coming and going, the anonymity, the celebrations, the encounters, the travel, the just-passing-through.”

“As a luxury hotel photographer I am continuously visiting hotels, and occasionally I want to share a first-hand experience in a blog post. It may be about an Argentinian hotel´s spectacular flower arrangements, a legendary Sunday brunch in Los Angeles, the irresistible walled gardens of an Irish castle, or blissful, state-of-the-art spa installations in northern England. If a hotel inspires me, I hope it will inspire you too.”
