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.

The Serras Barcelona rooftop hotel pool 

There is something about blue that appeals to the human eye, and to our aesthetic sensibilities, and the rooftop swimming pool with the city and sea views is an unmissable photo  for this  luxury boutique hotel in Barcelona.

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, She knew that adding in a night shot would provide extra value to the project. It took quite some coordinating the area, to have everything pristine, with the maintenance team on board to help out with pool lighting.

Food Photography

From the creative breakfast cuisine to mouth-watering patisserie, there are so many photo opportunities at the Serras Hotel Barcelona.
