I’ve known interior designer Aleksandra from Skela Studio for some time and I’ve always enjoyed our collaborations. On a photo shoot, it can be very helpful to have a second pair of eyes, especially if those eyes have a good artistic sense. This is why I like collaborating with Aleksandra.
This time around, Aleksandra had designed a room for a boutique hotel in Edinburgh, No 11 Brasserie & Boutique Hotel, and she wanted me to photograph it.
It is really important for hotels to have their room designed and photographed by professionals. Customers will make their decision to book based on the photographs they see online. So the pictures better look great. Having your hotel rooms photographed by a professional is therefore a must. But there is only so much a professional photographer can do: if the interior design is substandard, the photos won’t look as nice.
It was a pretty small one bed room. But I could have shot there for the whole afternoon. Interior designers are not only looking for a photograph showing as much of the room as possible, but also need detail shots. Unfortunately, we only had a couple of hours, so the few pictures I’m posting here were all we had time for.
