Holiday Rental photography at White Lodge

Marie needed to update her holiday rental photography to replace her smartphone photos with professional images to increase rental bookings.

This holiday rental photography session was taken at White Lodge in Hyam’s Beach on the NSW South Coast, one of the most popular holiday rental areas in Australia. We had complete freedom to create photos that Marie could use on AirBnb, Stayz and other online holiday rental booking systems to replace her old smartphone images she was using. All of the photos taken for this holiday rental are suitable for online booking systems, social media, websites, brochures and digital marketing.

Where is Hyam’s Beach?

Located about 2 hours drive south of Sydney, Hyam’s Beach is one of the hidden gems to travel to on the New South Wales South Coast, especially if you love photography. Hyam’s Beach is in the Guinness Book of Records for the whitest sand in the world, combined with the bay’s crystal clear waters it is like a tropical escape, rivalling the best islands in the world.

What was this holiday rental like?

White Lodge can accomodate up to 12 people and is suited to couples who are looking for an escape, small families or groups looking for a laid back, spacious retreat. It is also one of the few pet friendly accomodation houses in Hyam’s Beach. It’s perched up high and has views out across Jervis Bay amongst the trees yet it’s so close to the beach, from the driveway you can see the trail that leads onto the sand.

White Lodge Hyam’s Beach latest reviews are also great with solid ratings on Stayz and AirBnB

You can kick back on the provided relaxing chairs and listen to the waves crash softly onto shore, cook up a feast, or go for a short few minute walk to the delicious local cafe down the street. With a huge industrial washing machine and dryer, ample storage, undercover parking, outdoor eating areas, barbecue and huge tv you can practically live there as if it were your own home.

What is close by?

Within walking distance is the amazing little Hyams Beach Cafe & Store which could be dismissed as a local takeaway, but as soon as you step inside you are greeted with a range of gourmet delights. The menu is a mix of healthy meals and one of the largest hamburgers you’ll probably find on the south coast. Don’t let the Instagram or Facebook photos fool you – everything smells and tastes delicious with most of it being made onsite. Hyams Beach Cafe & Store has over 200 reviews on Google with 3.8/5

A short drive out of Hyams can take you either deeper into the National Park or heading back towards the highway is a small shopping centre with Vincentia and Huskinson just around the corner. It makes it a great spot to be relaxing, adventuring, whale watching or exploring from with so many things in the area to do.

What did this photography brief include?

  • A general selection of photos showcasing the property and its rooms.
  • Close up detail shots of decore, styling and other elements that make the holiday rental unique.
  • Location shots of the surrounding area. 
  • Standard and styled photos for use on different platforms. 

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. 

Marie's Review

“Paul recently photographed my holiday home White Lodge at Hyams Beach – I knew my old iPhone images needed updating but I didn’t realise quite how much till I saw the images that Paul created – I was stunned Paul managed to capture the mood and style of the house. The images were just how you would see it when you are there. They are evocative and beautiful, warm and personal – just wonderful – a brilliant job – thanks Paul – I will definitely be using Paul again”
