Unique Lighting Technique (interior signature shots)

As photography gets the highest visibility on your website it’s probably your most important window into your hotel which translates into sales. Therefore the standard of images needs to be the best they can be.

Jack Hardy uses his own sophisticated lighting and post-production techniques to ensure the best possible image quality. The images are created by independently lighting each area of the room, then in post-production they are then layered together to produce exceptional photos.

Please contact Jack to discuss how the technique could work for your hotel.

"Jack Hardy was the perfect man for the job. Highly sought after and with years of experience creating the signature shots for luxury hotels around the world, we knew his high standards would match our own. Jack and his team lead the creative direction with Adare Manor to capture everything from lifestyle to interior, exterior, and food and beverage shots. Each type of imagery requires different disciplines and approaches and required careful planning and direction."

"Jack is an extremely talented photographer. I reached out to Jack to acquire some of his photographs of Four Seasons' properties to use on a new Four Seasons digital campaign, and I really enjoyed working with him. Jack is extremely responsive and a pleasure to work with. He responds quickly and was very willing and excited to share his work with us and help us in any way. I will definitely work with Jack in the future, and I would recommend others to do the same!"
