We Like the Bosville Hotel, they do it right.
I’m not talking about serving food, making guests comfortable and providing a pleasant atmosphere. Rest assured they do do that, it’s a given. Of course they do, they are one of our clients and obviously we only photograph the best of the best.
What I’m talking about, rather abstrusely admittedly, is using our images on social media.
When we photograph somewhere, be it a hotel/house/b&b/Airbnb/restaurant/shop/cafe/castle/business/whatever we don’t just take pictures that show you what the place looks like. No, we go a bit further, we also take pictures that show you the character, the personality, the aspiration of the hotel/house/b&b/Airbnb/restaurant/shop/cafe/castle/business/whatever.
The idea is that we give you the choice of images that can not only populate your website but also fill your social media world with lovely pictures. We create images that can imply much more than they are actually saying. It’s interesting how much we infer from a photograph. A picture can show the corner of a nice couch with a stylish and plump cushion and we instantly think of comfort. Steam rising from a cup on a table, maybe with a scone/cake/biscuit/confection-of-your-choice (go for the scone!) beside it, maybe slightly behind it a little out of focus and you are thinking this is a nice place to sit and have a coffee/tea/hot chocolate/hot-beverage-of-your-choice. Aspiration by suggestion.
When you watch us work and you see us going round doing what you expect a photographer to do don’t be surprised if we suddenly get down on the floor looking like we are hiding behind the log basket next to a blazing wood burner or leap on a chair to get up close and personal with a shelf filled with carefully chosen bric-a-brac or even crawl on the floor of a bar muttering about the sun needing to come out from behind of that bloody cloud so it will shine nicely through the wine/whisky/gin-and-tonic/beer/ginger-beer-and-lime. It’s okay, relax it’s the ideal Instagram/Facebook/Twitter/the-social-media-platform-of-your-choice shot we are looking for.
So, thank you so much The Bosville Hotel for spending the Christmas period using our photographs on Instagram and a huge THANK YOU to all of our other clients that have also shared our pictures.
