They say a picture is worth a 1000 words – so when trying to produce an image that someone else will want to use, especially if it’s one for them to use to help them tell their story – or in this case, say to their guests: this room would be ideal for you – then I would often question them about who that person is.

Male, female, young, old, business person, bride, tourists, etc, etc – because I want that person to feel that this would be prefect for them too – in fact, I’d really like them to feel that are already there and this is already their room Smile

Okay, I may be getting a bit carried away here – but that is often like my Goal, i.e. to make the viewer feel that they are already there and this is what they are looking at.

And so I have spent the last 30 years trying to produce those type of images – “Just for you”, as we would often say – and so knowing who ‘you’ (the viewer) is, would therefore be important for me and my team to know… hence the questions about the client’s target market, etc, etc.

Because everything in the image, as well as how it’s lit, composed, framed, etc, etc – is all part of the story that we are writing a 1000 words about, when we take a picture or produce and image or even create one, to say what it is that we are wanting to say to the viewer, i.e. you Wink

And so with that in mind, the fun begins – which is basically what happened here, during this shoot of the master bedroom in the Imperial Suite…

.. so it was time to ask Susie to come have a look.

Seriously though, Susie really did like it – however, it was this question that I kept asking, about who this person was here…

.. which is when she finally said ‘yes’ – like that’s the word I have been look for, to describe this ideal person, who… would want to say in this room, could afford to say in this room, would normally stay in this room .. would stop and look at my picture Smile

Yes, it was a bit like going shopping with one of my daughters, who would tell me that she knew exactly what she wanted, once she would see it Wink

Anyway, that was the master bedroom in the Imperial Suite done – so 4 down and only 1 to go.
