The Value of Aerial Hotel Photography
As professional hotel photographers, we know how important it is to have a clear idea of the hotel and its surrounding area before booking a stay. That’s adding aerial photography to a hotel photo shoot is incredibly valuable.
Aerial photography provides a bird’s eye view of the hotel and its surroundings, allowing guests to get a better sense of the overall layout and location of the property. By capturing the hotel from above, guests can see its proximity to nearby attractions, landmarks, and natural features like beaches, lakes, and mountains. This is especially useful for travelers who are unfamiliar with the area and want to get a sense of what’s nearby before they arrive.
In addition, aerial photography can be a great way to highlight the hotel’s connection to its surroundings. For example, if a hotel is located near a national park or other natural feature, aerial photography can capture the property in the context of its surroundings, showcasing the natural beauty that guests can experience during their stay. This can be a powerful marketing tool, especially for eco-conscious travelers who are looking for accommodations that offer an immersive connection to nature.
Of course, adding aerial photography to a hotel photo shoot requires specialized equipment and expertise. But for hotels that invest in this service, the benefits can be significant. Not only does it provide guests with valuable information and a beautiful visual experience, but it can also set the hotel apart from its competitors in a crowded marketplace.
Hotel Photography for Country Inn & Suites by Radisson Cumming, GA
By providing a bird’s eye view of this property and its surroundings, we were able to show tell the story of the hotel in a way that traditional hotel photography or a dot on the map would not allow. This property is located in Cumming, GA near an important intersection for the Atlanta suburbs.
The hotel is BEAUTIFUL and it photographed beautifully but the real value we brought was to show the peace and quiet of the hotel while also showing the great location. Not every hotel would benefit as much as this one but consider the difference in showing this property from the parking lot vs. showing it from above.
In order to hire us to shoot, the owners were required to get an exception approved by the brand. They wanted to get the photos that would showcase their hard work and investment. We are so glad that they did!
Thanks to the team at the hotel for making this an incredible hotel photo shoot!
