Interior design photography is the art of showing off the beauty of rooms and furnishings to their best advantage in photographs.
The difficulty of choosing the right perspective to find the right angle can make this type of photography a more complex task than it may seem at first.
Professional photos facilitate distribution on websites and specialist magazines - which place particular emphasis on high-quality images when highlighting your business or property. In addition, it is of course possible to attract the attention of guests in this way. A tourist, for example, observes various aspects when doing research on the Internet that influence his decision about where to stay. With this in mind, photographing the architecture and interior can make a good impression on potential guests.
It can also serve to highlight the hotel or guest house and strengthen the institutional image. High quality interior design pictures can make a huge difference when it comes to attracting and attracting new customers to a particular property. This makes these photos an essential part of the decision-making process of those looking for holiday accommodation or buying / renting real estate.
However, it is the expertise behind photographers' lenses that enables them to create a valuable resource for promoting your business.
Getting the right photos takes several important factors in mind. The main thing is to highlight important points in a certain area without misleading the customer. Therefore, these types of photos must not be edited so that they do not differ too much from the real room, otherwise the future viewing will lead to disappointment for the customer and you will lose credibility as a company.
In interior photography for hotels or real estate, realistic images must be created with wide-angle lenses so that the maximum of what the premises have to offer can be shown on the images. The right use of lighting creates stylish and cozy spaces that are more appealing and can attract potential customers.
Photographing interiors for professional or artistic purposes is challenging, but extremely rewarding at the same time.
There are several factors that need to be considered. Interior design photography is very different from photographing landscapes, activities or people. If the main element of the photo is the room itself, then completely different aspects have to be considered, such as the combination and harmony between objects and the intelligent use of light.
It takes a keen eye to spot interfering factors such as stains on the carpet, dents on the sofa cushions or fingerprints on the windows that can affect the harmony of the picture. An experienced interior design photographer is therefore able to depict a room and its interior design with the right angle and the correct use of light sources in high quality and truthfully in his pictures.

Photographer for luxury hotels
Patrick Schmetzer is a luxury hotel photographer who has photographed various travel destinations and some of the best luxury and historic hotels in the world. Patrick has photographed everything from indoor and outdoor buildings to Michelin-starred restaurant kitchens. He was born and raised in Alabama USA. As a teenager he moved to Frankfurt am Main and studied at the SAE Institute in Frankfurt. Patrick prefers to take photos in natural light. He perfected several innovative, cutting-edge photography and lighting techniques to capture iconic hotel photos. Patrick loves the finer things in life including traveling to exotic places.
Resorts around the world
Patrick and his team cover the areas of architectural photography, exterior, interior, portraits of the surroundings of hotel staff, local experiences and tours as well as geographical information. The young team consists of lighting experts, art directors, designers, digital editors and journalists with the aim of achieving the right look, the right feeling and the right information for real estate. They provide unique services to carry out photography assignments for luxury hotels around the world.
Hotels that tell stories
Patrick was lucky enough to photograph a wide variety of hotels, from brand new multi-million dollar projects to characteristic traditional hotels that are all getting on in years, but still enjoy a high priority today. Patrick says: "For a hotel with a long history, I have a very special place in my heart." History emerges over time. It is not tangible. Unlike luxury goods, it is something that money cannot buy.
The perfect location
The hotel's location is very important, but it is often overlooked. This is one of the elements of hotel photography. An important step in photographing any location is not only to show the essence of the hotel itself, but also to focus on its location - the guest's goal - and capture it photographically.
We are a Germany based team of digital natives and travel enthusiasts. Since 2017 we have been taking social media in the luxury hotel industry to the next level by developing marketing campaigns and creating relevant visual content. Every day we reach more than a million travelers who are inspired for their next trip.
Creativity is a very important part of my life. It is the discovery, the holding on, the letting flow of what the heart feels and sees in a certain moment, it is the experience, the understanding, the learning and essentially the practice of the freedom of being, of living, of thinking.
Born in February 1990, USA. Living in Frankfurt am Main. Photography & film has been my hobby since I was 14 years old. Since 2014 I have been professionally dedicated to photography & videography.
