As hotels evolve, customers crave new imagery.
Guest rooms and suites at the Serras Hotel Barcelona . Capturing the architecture and interior design of the rooms is important, but the crowning glory is always the view. A room with a spectacular vista is so important to many guests. On average it takes about two hours to prepare each room for the photo shoot: this includes our stylist making the beds meticulously, clearing surfaces of clutter, and arranging beautiful white fresh flowers; also interior lighting must be correct,, and of course blue skies in daylight – or, if preferred, evening light. Naturally, the mood of the room changes throughout the day from dawn through to midday and then afternoon and dusk. When the meteorological conditions are not ideal for shooting, then the schedule is adjusted to ensure that all hotels rooms are shown in their very best light.
Hotel pools and lifestyle photography
There is something about blue that appeals to the human eye, and to our aesthetic sensibilities, and the rooftop swimming pool with the city view creates a great backdrop for lifestyle photography.
Pools and architectural photography
Architectural photography is all about symmetry. The scene changes dramatically between sunrise and sunset, and even though Michelle was only commissioned to carry out daylight imagery, I knew that adding in a night shot would provide extra value to the project. It took quite some coordinating to have everything pristine, with the maintence team on board to help out with pool lighting.
From the creative breakfast cuisine to mouth-watering patisserie, there are so many photo opportunities at the Serras Hotel Barcelona .
Architectural photography is all about image, and the rooftop city view pool is very appealing to photograph.
