Hotel photography for Federation Gardens

Photography for a boutique hotel accomodation located in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney.

This hotel photography collection was taken in the Blue Mountains at Federation Gardens near Evans Lookout in Blackheath.  Nestled on a large property surrounded by the lush bushland of the Blue Mountains you immediately feel like you are a million miles away.

The photography brief was to create a collection of photos to be used to help promote visits during the upcoming peak winter season, so the photos needed to consist of;

  • The rooms and decore.
  • The facilities and surroundings.
  • Little details like the candles and open fire.
  • The amazing lookout down the street.
  • Some hero shots to use on website landing pages.

The owner, Robyn, then used the photos to promote her hotel by updating her website and online profiles on AirBnb,, Stayz etc while adding to her library for social media use.


Where was this hotel?
About 2 hours west of Sydney just past a few minutes past Katoomba. It’s just a couple of minutes to Evans Lookout which boasts stunning views across the valley and the gateway to walking trails to explore the bushland below. Heading a few kilometres either left or right takes you into Katoomba or Medlow Bath to either explore, indulge or shop.

Hotel facilities
When you have space you can have nearly everything – indoor swimming pool, tennis court, pool table room, kids play area, outdoor fire pit and lots of open areas for ball games, bike riding and more. Surrounded by trees gives the place a sense of privacy as an added bonus and quite a large distance from the main road meaning its safe for kids.

How can a Hotel use photography?

How Customers search online.

These days Consumers will search online to find suitable hotels to stay at for a holiday or short vacation. It means they are making decisions about your hotel purely by what they see on your website, social media profile, Google My Business listing or online booking sites.

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

Customers will be looking at;

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

Hotels who don’t do a good job presenting themselves online simply won’t get considered during a Customer’s research phase. We can assist with all areas of your marketing activities.

Business photography can be used for;

  • Website pages.
  • News or blog pages.
  • Social media posts.
  • Facebook Ads.
  • Google Ads.
  • Google My Business profiles.
  • Newspaper or magazine advertising.
  • Posters and flyers.
  • LinkedIn profile pages.


Robyn's review

“We are a boutique accommodation facility in the Blue Mountains of NSW and recently had the pleasure of Paul from La Lente Photography doing a photo-shoot of our accommodation and facilities. Paul is professional in his approach yet warm & friendly at the same time – which is a winning combination in our eyes. It was such a pleasure to work with Paul and ultimately become part of a photographic experience that exudes diligence, beauty and an ambience that is evident with every shot. Paul’s willingness to tell ‘our’ story through each image is a testimony in itself – we are forever grateful for his giftedness from behind the lens.”
