Lodging

I take special care for each photo. My goal is to reproduce what my eyes see.

Room photography is probably the most critical aspect for hotel photography. Indeed, this category of photo certainly is the best way to showcase the standing of a place.

In this concern, Julien works to reproduce what his eyes see. This sounds easy to say, but it’s not easy to do!

This portfolio presents Julien’s favorite images focuses on hotel rooms, hotel bathrooms, detail photos, newlywed bedrooms, accommodation terraces and balconies, and of course, poolside rooms.

Hotel Rooms

Hotel rooms photography is Julien’s favorite subject, because of revealing all the ‘behind the window’ details on his final images. Indeed, professional photographers will ensure that their final photos do not appears burned (white) in any aspect of an image – which can occur when shooting with windows (when the ‘behind a window’ turns out completely white/burnt). Julien achieves this aspect with a professional and hand-made HDR rendering.

In his approach to work, Julien take photos of ‘real’ spaces, not ‘styled’. Adding extras to a hotel room such as stemware and a bottle of wine because ‘it looks better or more romantic’? This doesn’t work for him.
In his work and ethos, people and hotel guests must see a representation -even artistic- of reality.

Similarly when photo shooting in small spaces like bathrooms with a wide angle lens, Julien will ensure that his final photos doesn’t show ‘large’ spaces, by correcting lens distortions during post-production.

Hotel Bathrooms

This is not an easy subject when shooting small bathrooms. However, the potential use of a wide-angle lens, the reflections on bathroom mirrors and tripod removals during post-production, can yield the final results we are looking for. Staging bathroom amenities is also an important aspect that Julien consider before taking a shot, similarly as to be sure the bathroom mirrors are super clean.

Accommodation Terraces and Balconies

Julien prefers to take photos from outside the rooms. Although it may be possible to distinguish the terraces and balconies of hotel rooms in photos taken from inside the rooms, taking photos from outside the rooms remains Julien’s best choice.

Carrying out a photo shooting at night is also one of Julien’s favorite aspects, which allowing him to artistically highlight the ambient colors and shaded areas.
