I’m just finishing up a hotel shoot in the Solomon Islands – the first of a double commission. I head to Samoa a bit later to photograph a new resort opening up there in July.
Here’s a short preview (below) of some of the pics from this assignment:
The swimming pool of a resort or a hotel tends to be its feature so you need to be looking to capture it in optimum conditions (I’m in the Solomon Islands where my attention has been drawn to the subject over the past few days).
As a photographer, my first priority is to capture the pool the minute I see it under a clear sky as I know – particularly in the South Pacific – it may never look like that again while I’m there (and, I can assure you, the weather gods never tire of showing what I can shoot, then stealing it). The shot may not be great but at least I have something “in the can”; as a resort shoot without a pool shot is never likely to cut the mustard…..(what does that actually mean??!!).
