Hotel Rooms Photos

One of the main reasons I have to re-shoot a hotel is probably because of room renovations. Rooms are the number one image hotels ask for. It is the final destination of the hotel guest. It is the resting place of the guest.

Knowing how a hotel bed should be done is a plus I have because of my background in hotel management studies. The way the phone cord should be, the way all lights in the room should have the same color temperature and the way the bed and pillows should be "ironed" in post production (I basically invented a technique for this) are just few of the points to have in mind during the room shoot.

Apart from doing several compositions inside the room, the photographer should try and do details also. These are very important and could be used by the webmaster in numerous opportunities.

Here are some examples of hotel rooms well photographed.


Interior Design photography

It is incredible how one thing leads to another. Hotel photography took me to real estate photography and now to interior design photography.  All of witch I love doing. I have been specializing in hotel and real estate photography for quite a white now. Because of my hotel management background,  architectural and hotel photography just seemed a very logical step at this time in my career. But now, adding to this, I have been doing quiet a lot of interior design photography also. I can clearly see how these 3 types of specialized photography are related.

I have been using a technique I invented and call "points of light". It was just meant to be. This technique allows me to actually work alone when I have to travel and can't take my assistants. It is lightweight, fast and affordable for my clients. I don't know if I'm the only one using this technique, but it is a time saver. The best part of this technique is that I can use it very effectively in all of these 3 types of photography: hotel, real estate and interior design photography. 

Here are some examples of "points of light":


You can see the points of light in the pillows, bed, curtains and wall next to the curtains. This allows for better depth of view on my images.

In this image, I made the points of light more obvious so you can see what the effect will be in the end after processing the image. Each flower has a point of light, the bottom of the small fridge, the wooden closet and on both beds.

Bohio News shoots photographers

It sure has been a long time since I made a magazine cover! 13 years have past from cover to cover! I can only thank Reynaldo Caminero, Bohio News chief director, Rosa Veras from sales, the lovely make-up artist Wendy Montero and my fellow photographers for such a compilation of great work of art.
