First we listen. We find out about you, the guest experience you offer, your target audience, business aims, ambitions and more. To get started, arrange a focused conversation (we call it a DNA call) with our small, dedicated team today.
Our team only work with 3 or 4 owners at any time, so we truly get to know you. Relationships are really important. Between us we’ve worked alongside hundreds of holiday rental owners to help grow their business and get results. We listen, we learn and then we work with you to put a plan together to totally reinvigorate your online presence. Helping you achieve your goals.
When people are deciding where to book their next holiday, it’s a big decision. A considered purchase. And a not inconsiderable amount of money. So how can you give your prospective guests the very best experience of your self-catering cottage, holiday rental or hotel, long before they make that decision to book? read more
By making high quality imagery of your property the focus of your website and marketing platforms. This can help speed up booking decisions as well as giving your potential guests the confidence to click ‘Book now’.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. So in addition to providing detailed written information about your accommodation and the guest experience you offer (we can help with this too), it is vital to include powerful images to truly show the look and feel of your property.
Good quality interior photography can also help guests with queries that are otherwise unanswered by the copy itself.
Eg. Does your holiday cottage have a walk-in shower? Is there a step down into the kitchen? Does the hotel have a waiting area with sofas in the lobby, so you can arrange to meet friends? How have you adapted communal space to comply with social distancing regulations since re-opening after lock-down?
For someone organising a hen party weekend, being able to easily look around a holiday cottage can make all the difference – and secure you that high value booking for your large party house. Is the dining table big enough to seat everyone? What about breakfast in the kitchen the following morning? And can everyone relax in the lounge together, without having to sit on the floor?
This type of information might be of particular importance to visitors with mobility issues, who want reassurance that they will be able to access all areas. Or for a family travelling with a child who has autism, they need to see how safe your property is – eg is the garden is enclosed and the swimming pool secure when not in use?
Which is why, at ACT Studios, we work with you in advance, to make sure your hospitality photography not only anticipates the every need of your guests but also answers them, in imagery, with a combination of still photography and immersive 3D walk-through tours. We also design and create intuitive websites. They’re visually appealing of course! But they are also simple to navigate, provide all the information guests need to help them choose and ultimately makes it easy to book. So you’re guests are getting the very best experience from the get-go.

Working in the hospitality industry for so long, we are acutely aware of just how competitive the marketplace is. And how many bookings are now price driven, following the proliferation of online comparison websites.
Ensuring that your accommodation stands out from the rest is no easy task. But thoughtful interior photography that captures the very essence of your property, and a website focusing on the guest experience you offer, can go a long way to helping secure a booking.
You may wish to consider, for example, photographing your hotel in all levels of light. You then showcase it in bright sunlight as well as early evening dusk, with a particular focus on exterior, task lighting.
By the same token, you might also want to consider imagery of your hotel in all seasons. So you can target your marketing with seasonally appropriate visual content.
And of course, there are key events which can be staged at any time of year. These could be used in promotional materials for eg Christmas, New Year, corporate hospitality and wedding receptions.
Whatever your requirements, please call us to find out how our hotel photography and bespoke websites can help you successfully market your business to a wider audience.
