I've seen many great shots done in and around hotels. And I prefer the look of a hotel room to a studio set up. But I wonder how often the hotel management interferes if the photographer has not gained permission in advance. But I also wonder how complicated it is to get permission. Also, does the photographer need a release from the hotel in order to use photos taken in the room? Any advice?

I too prefer the look of a real environment to a studio. The bad news is that hotels do want you to ask for permission. I've heard of plenty of photographers just being discrete and getting away with it, but there can be some ugly confrontations if management finds out.

It kind of depends on the personality of the person in management that you contact. Some are open and excited about the idea - others are skeptical and against it. Its a crap shoot - just start dialing numbers and see what happens!

Some hotels do look good.. And I dont mean la quinta inn or even a holiday inn, you need to go upscale, where they look like apts. or very antique.

I have never asked for permission to shoot in a hotel, cuz down here is pretty much a no go... Now, Im sure that if you ARE gonna make money off them or if you have a cliente requesting that look, u can talk to the hotel and see how much more they charge...

Before I had a studio, I would ALWAYS shoot in hotel rooms.. I got a lil over them.. but it has been long enough ( 2+ yrs ) that I would not mind going back. I think that I would be more inclined to rent a house instead of a hotel room though.

i dunno about hotels per se, but cool locations, whether it's a hotel, a house, or an abandoned industrial warehouse, are always more interesting to shoot at then in the studio. but then yu definitely have the problem of having permission to do so. hotels, if you ask them, aren't usually too keen on having pro photo shoots on their premises unless they're being paid a special fee and issues like permits and insurance are taken care of. that's why few shooters will go into a hotel room and shoot *WITH* the management's permission.

studios, OTOH, are convenient and often the preferred place to shoot. it depends on the use of the image. in my case, much of what i shoot is on a seamless because the end result will be graphic artwork where the model is lifted from the BG and placed in and with some other graphical elements.

I definitely prefer a studio rather than a hotel room... when I've shot in a hotel, it's just made me feel kinda iffy with the photographer.. just not very professional to me..

That's just my opinion though as a model....

I appreciate the post. I have never shot in a hotel but missed a few shoots because of a lack of location. I always thought it was less than professional but I guess as long as the model is o.k with it, it should be cool with me as well.
