When choosing an individual or an agency to photograph your hotel, you should ask for examples of their work. Hotel photography is about spaces, how they relate to one another, and how they make you feel when you’re in them. Good hotel photographers will be able to make small spaces feel spacious and understand how to use their equipment, natural light, and processing to bring out the best of any hotel room. While you may be drawn to use a hotel photographer that you know, keep in mind that many hospitality corporations require the use of a qualified vendor. Ask your regional director or corporate office for an approved vendor list to be sure you are procuring images from an approved company. It can be upsetting to find out that the images you have paid for are not eligible to be published on a corporate website.
