“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” ~ Karl Lagerfeld
Royal Swazi Villas Hotel in Swaziland hired Colin Stephenson Photography, to photograph the hotel and tourist attractions that guests enjoy. Colin Stephenson Photography utilised stills photography & video equipment to showcase the hotel. The photographic assignment include photographing & filming the interiors of the hotel rooms and the villas on location in Swaziland.
Colin Stephenson Photography has had the pleasure of collaborating with Stuart Brink Films on some high-end hotel and lodge shoots.
The combination of film and photography in the same shoot has numerous benefits. Most obvious is the fact that the shoots are done at the same time and thus minimize the setup times and possible interruptions to the establishment.
The films produced provide an elegant summary of the hotel or lodge, and allow viewers a brief taste of the experience they can expect from it. In addition, the photos also compliment the film and allow viewers to delve into more detail in any areas that may interest them.
Working for Miarestate Hotel & Spa on the Wild coast in the Eastern Cape over a number of days allowed the film and stills crews to capture memorable guest experiences at the hotel under the most favourable lighting conditions. The photography and video teams are practised at working together seamlessly to provide a complete document of the interiors and facilities provided by the hotel.
On the Gondwana Game Lodge Photoshoot the film and photo crew captured interior and architectural footage of the villas and hotel suites. During the best evening light landscape photography and video clips allowed us to capture the environment and the way the architecture blends into the landscape.
