There is nothing more damaging for hotels/properties than bad photos. Images associating to your property be it on your hotel website, external distribution channel, social media channels or flyers should be professional, clear and a true presentation of your property. Remember, these images give potential guest a virtual experience of how their stay would be like if and when they booked your property. So how do you ensure you have the right images for your property?
Taking Hotel Photos That Sell
The most important thing is to make sure that all the particular rooms are neat and cleared of any furniture that is not relevant to the particular room. Make sure that the beds are well made and tidy.
Lighting is an important factor when it comes to photography, it’s no different for hotel photography. Guest want to see a room as it looks. Arrange taking the photos when there is more natural lighting so that the rooms are not dark which could give an impression of badly light rooms which guest off course don’t want.
There is always a chance to improve your final images with editing, but don’t become over ambitious with the editing tools, you still want what the guest booked to look alike with the actual room they stay in.
When doing room shoots, there are angles that will make the room appear bigger or smaller, off course, with hotel rooms, we want to show space. Use a wide angled lens to gain space and focus on the best feature in that room, it could be a modern work desk, a huge balcony offering a guest some captivating views.
When it comes to hotel images, the higher the pixel count the sharper the photo. The photos should at least 2000 pixels.
