Set Up and Preparation
To make the most of our service, and to ensure that the investment you make in us reaps the benefits you expect, please read the following guidelines and suggestions!
Make guests aware that photography is being done on the premises.
Schedule your shoot for the slowest day of the week, if possible. If you want to feature outdoor scenes, think about the time of year or day that your Inn shows best.
Make sure the rooms are clean and feature any amenities that will enhance the images.
Lighting conditions may necessitate that the photography be done at certain times of the day.
Allow one hour per room for the photography. Generally we create as many images as needed to show all of the features of the room.
If heavy objects require moving, we would ask that a member of your staff assist.
You or a member of your staff should be available during the shoot in case we have questions, or need permission to move items.
Props are great to enhance the viewing experience. Think about what makes your brand unique, and feature it throughout the Inn.
Additional time may be needed if rooms are occupied or unavailable during our shoot. For exterior shooting, additional time may be needed if weather conditions are unacceptable.
For food photography would be prior to guest seating, so please factor this into your serving planning. Any Signature dishes should be featured.
