Hotel photography for Aira Boutique in Sapa

Aira Boutique was after some new photography for their hotel in Sapa in far north Vietnam..

Hotel photography can make all the difference between have an occupancy rate of 50% or 80%. Travellers use all types of online booking websites to choose their hotel accomodation and all they have to compare are reviews and photos. So it becomes more important than ever to have a set of professional hotel photography images for your property.

People travelling can scroll through photos with ease these days and don’t need to rely on travel agency brochures that have maybe one or two photos.

This photography session was focussed on created images for the Aira Boutique Hotel and Spa in northern Vietnam. Sitting high up in the town of Sapa, its balcony’s have breathtaking views across the valley. It’s just far enough away from Sapa’s busy town center to relaxing, yet still within walking distance.

It’s the perfect haven for your choice of relaxation, trekking or sampling the local foods. Local attractions are a short trip away whether its lush rice paddies, historic villages or temples like Fansipan, 3,000 metres high in the mountains.

The hotel provides welcome relief to the hustle and bustle of the city streets with plenty of facilities available and very friendly staff. Their reviews back this up with 4.7/5 on Google and 98% as Excellent on TripAdvisor.

The creative brief for this set of hotel photos included;

  • The foyer and reception area.
  • The dining area and tables.
  • A sample of one of the rooms.
  • Photos of the view from the rooms.
  • A couple of staff lifestyle shots. 

How can a business use photography?

How Customers search online.

These days Consumers will search online to find suitable businesses in their local area before they call or visit them. It means they are making decisions about your brand by what they see on your website, social media profiles or Google My Business listing. 

They will read reviews of course and browse your recent social media posts to get an idea of what you do but ultimately they’ll make a final decision if they feel they can trust you; you create this with great photography.

Customers will be looking at;

  • Whether the photos of your business are real.
  • Are the photos good quality.
  • Do they represent your business in a truthful way.
  • Do the photos feel like they have been bought or copied from Google

Businesses who don’t do a good job presenting themselves online simply won’t get considered during a Customer’s research phase. 

our recent reviews

I recently asked Paul to take some business shots of me for my speaking , coaching and training business . We met in a cafe at Maroubra and after lunch he did a few snaps in the cafe and on a quiet laneway. Within 24 hours he sent me the final product and I bought all of his 38 photos of me . They were that good . Super impressed with Paul direct no BS style , his speed and value for money

“We recently hired Paul to take photos of our retail location which comprises lifestyle, cafe, plants, garden. He was amazing. Did a thorough job in advance to know what we wanted so we could then work quickly on the day of shooting. He was self sufficient and worked quickly to get the shots done within our timeframe and budget. The shots he delivered were incredible and we literally chose everyone! Would highly recommend.”

“Paul was very fexible and accommodating when engaged to take professional photos of our executives and photograph our corporate Christmas dinner and entertainment. Paul was fun to work with on the night.”
