Why Hotel Photography Matters on Social Media

Essential Tips for Captivating Hotel Photography

  • Lighting Is Key:

    • Always seek natural light for the most flattering effects.

    • Image suggestion: A sun-drenched lobby or a sunrise view from a room.

    • Image suggestion: Capture your hotel’s unique amenities or architectural marvels.

    • Image suggestion: Close-up of the unique decor elements or luxurious amenities.

  • Create a Sense of Place:
