Hotel Photographer - The Russell Hotel, St. Andrews
Updated: Apr 22, 2020
I was lucky enough to photograph a hotel in St. Andrews not so long ago - The Russell Hotel!
The Russell is a great boutique hotel in the heart of St. Andrews, Scotland. It's located just minutes from the world famous 'Old Course' and has superb views out over St. Andrews Bay.
I was asked to create a handful of images mostly for online use - Their website, social media, as well as for some third party booking sites (Expedia, booking.com, etc).
This meant that when I was planning which images to take I had to keep in mind that a mix of portrait and landscape shots would be required (portrait for social, and landscape for the website).
I did my best to not only create images of the whole scenes, but also focus in on the details (like the bathroom amenities on offer and the little added extras in the bedrooms), for the bar I choose a few of their best selling wines to photograph on display, and in their lounge - a great shot around the fireplace to really highlight their traditional routes and welcoming atmosphere.
Overall I had a great time producing some content for the family run hotel. I was able to create, not only bedroom photography, but also images of their bar, restaurant, food they serve in the restaurant and some of the external architecture! All in all, it was a great day!
