Chirk Hospitality Photography.
"Too cost prohibitive for a business our size... we don't have a budget for it... commercial photography costs too much so we try ourselves..." And they haven't yet asked how much. It's perceived to be expensive. So why not ask first?
It's a little competitive... the hospitality industry! We know, as we've been working with clients for over sixteen years in the sector... indeed we could be classed as hospitality photographers really - the combination of interiors, food and workplace photography - whether the workplace be front of house or the kitchen!.

Hospitality photography that demonstrates the value you bring to your clients and customers - showing just how much you care.
So to repeat - the hospitality industry by all aspects is highly competitive, clients literally lost as they walk to the next building's menu, drive to the next BNB or guest house sign or decide to choose a hotel by it's location to a conference centre rather than the excellent service you over them! And to make things worse, the internet has to some degree removed most of your value add options and turned it into a contract 'price based' market place - AirBNB, Booking.com promoting price over value and Deliveroo, whilst giving diners choice removes all the value add of your establishment, the investment in its style and the quality of front of house staff other restaurants would die for!

Image is everything in hospitality, it's just as important your customer service and the product, service or menu you sell.
So as we've said its a little competitive out their! And how do so many hospitality businesses then try to compete with this huge and growing pressure - by taking images on their I-phone and using those to promote, dishes, menus, rooms, facilities - yes you name it everything.
So why do it? You never skim on the ingredients, you never shy from investing in fine fabrics or furniture, you always battling to get the best staff for the budget and you always pay an arm an a leg for premise location. Then skimp on the marketing... the images that sit on the internet selling your dishes, menu or rooms... the images that show your staff care... need we say more?
Remember the internet strips all your value to a picture and a few words... It's not like customers popping their head inside to have a quick look see!

YRSCommercial, hospitality images, video production & content creation in Chirk. It doesn't cost as much as you think.
Now creating professional images of your menu doesn’t cost a fortune as is often thought. It does require a little planning though to understand the images you wish to show – a standard set that rarely changes or perhaps a selection of seasonal images that lets you as the restaurant owner, change the website appearance.
What about rooms and staff? No the costs are not huge - but beware - hospitality photography is not 'property' photography! There's a huge difference - one sells the space a buyer wants to own. The other - hospitality photography - sells the experience you create with you business, staff and investments, which in turn makes customers want to come back time and time again.
So is it possible to get one photographer that is a specialist in food photography and styling and can be a building interiors expert as well? Yes, we do it. That's why we call ourselves hospitality photographers. In short, we shoot: Food, Rooms, People.
