few points about "Inn-terior" photography.
spend thousands making your rooms look beautiful.
Are you saving any money by making them look small, dark and fuzzy?
innkeepers are now shooting their own web site photos with digital
cameras or letting the web designer do it. These cameras are
great for birthdays, vacations and family outings. They are
very poor for
small spaces with low light. They are simply not meant to do
this type of thing.
It doesn't make good advertising or business sense to have your rooms looking
small, dark and muddy on the web. Rooms seldom need to be photographed - usually
when you renovate or re-decorate. How often is that? After I photograph your
rooms, you'll have beautiful images for printing or web - you get double
the usage. They are wide, nicely lit digital images, scanned on a high
resolution drum scanner, and given to you on disk. They are your property. I
can also combine this with beautiful brochures, postcards and web sites. We actually
create more brochures for New England lodgings than anyone, but it all starts
with the photography.
I don't begrudge anyone trying to save a little money, but I don't think
is. Save the digital camera for parties
and vacations. Promoting your business is entirely another thing.

really looks like, and gives the viewer
a sense of the actual room size. Also note the improvement
in color of the bedspread and pillows.

this digital photo you can hardly see it, and
the harsh lighting ruins the entire effect. There are
