RTV photographers will capture all required images as outlined in Choice Hotel’s photography standards.

Note that all three RTV Professional Photography Packages include (30) HD Still Photos which has historically been the hospitality industry photography standard.

More recently, however, Expedia.com, Booking.com and many other OTA’s have been pushing for more still photos in an effort to better promote hotels online. As a result, Choice Hotels and several other hospitality corporations have changed the number of still photo recommendations for their hotels. In many cases, (30) still photos may be all you need for your hotel. Depending, however, upon the number of unique room types and amenities that your particular hotel has to offer, in addition to your selected photography package, you may wish to purchase additional still photos in order to meet the new Choice Hotels photography recommendations.

To determine the exact number of photos that will ensure proper coverage of your hotel, a photo “Image Calculator” has been designed that can quickly calculate the number of photos that will be recommended for each individual hotel.

To begin the process, simply click on the “Calculate Your Image Needs” at the bottom of any listed photography package. Once you’ve completed the Image Calculator (it just takes a couple of minutes) and have hit “submit”, you will receive an instant email that includes the total number of still photos that Choice Hotels recommends for your hotel (the total still photo count will appear at the bottom of the email). Upon submitting your Image Calculator Survey, you will also see the RTV “Order Page” link appear at the bottom of the survey page. Please check your email for the total number of still photos that ensure proper coverage of your hotel, then you can proceed back to the Order Page link to place your order. The online order can be completed in just a few short minutes.

Important: If your hotel requires more than 30 to 35 still photos, you should “Add-On” to your order as needed 10, 20, 30, 40 or up to 50 additional still photos. You’ll find those options beneath the Photo Packages under the “Add On” section at the bottom of page 2 of the online order form.
