Working with luxury self catering accommodation, hotels, architects, interior designers and luxury letting agents. I get to see some fantastic properties as I am lucky enough to be an Interiors Photographer working creatively in Devon, Somerset, Cornwall and Dorset.
The key to successful interior photography is the light, so I have a full set of lighting kit plus the technical experience to guarantee I get the best images for your property.
Prior to the photoshoot, we will have discussed the aims of your marketing brief, we will have a clear focus on the images and style required. We agree where the photographs will be used, as this will effect how and what we shoot. For example, if you have a website banner you will need long wide shots or if you are using the images mainly on instagram, then square formate is the best. By deciding all this before we pick up a camera, we can maximises the usability of the images we shoot.
Interiors Photographer working creatively with luxury holiday homes
We create a mood board to enable open shared discussion with our clients. I source props which may include fresh flowers, plants, books, magazines, soft furnishings and so on. I always carry a large collection of extra props in the van when I shoot a property, because some spaces require more attention to achieve the right look and feel. I have big collection of props that can be utilised by my clients too. If you have props to use, that’s great too.
The reason we use props is to bring the house alive. In most cases, we are selling the idea of a holiday, a place to unwind, escape to and ultimately to relax. A space that looks appealing, sumptuous and desirable from the first photograph the clients are shown, is the main objective. Having good decor, a clean tidy space is a must too.
The twilight dusk shots that you see below, are really effective for properties wanting to stand out from the crowd. These shots work really well on social media and website as the colour pop and combination is really eye-catching. The feedback on these images has been incredible because clients have found that properties have book up so much faster when these images have been used.
I have been shooting interiors for six years, I understand the need to work quickly, sometimes change over days are the only space, so working around others is key. I enjoy working with a variety of people from direct clients, home owners or holiday companies. I am safe pair of hands, that can represent your brand professionally.
