The Brudenell Hotel Suffolk – Interior Photography from Lee Blanchflower Ltd
Shooting interior photography at this modern seafront hotel at the end of the Aldeburgh parade was a real pleasure. The modern Brudenell Hotel is 1 mile from Maggi Hambling’s Scallop sculpture, and 1.7 miles from the Britten-Pears Foundation at Red House, the former home of composer Benjamin Britten and tenor Peter Pears. We were commissioned to undertake a variety of commercial photography shoots for the family-friendly Brudenell. These would reflect all aspects of a guest staying at the stylish hotel. The photography would be used to provide a bespoke image bank. Our Interior Photography images are shot to ensure media can be used across all platforms including printed brochures, social media and website galleries.
Part of the project included delivering stylish interior photography that would reflect the luxury guest rooms paying particular attention to room detail. Interior photography lighting is so important that it’s almost a specialism in itself. You need to balance the lighting so there are no overly dark shadows or overly bright highlights. We used the light that was available in the room including lamps, overhead lighting and natural light from windows. We always try to reduce the need for artificial lighting as soft, natural light will deliver a far more relaxing feel and look. Window light is a huge friend, particularly during ‘golden hours’ – early in the morning or late in the afternoon when shadows are not as harsh and sunlight is not as direct. Scouting a location and scene beforehand to get an idea of how light falls in the space is really important. If we notice lighting is falling too harshly, we schedule the shoot around the lighting will always benefit the space we are shooting inside.
Planning Your Interior Photography
Planning is so important. You simply can’t shoot Interior Photography at random. Room features play an important element to creating a story. Each room will have it’s own character and atmosphere that really comes to life with the addition of carefully placed items. Rooms are people spaces so a balance has to be made between showcasing the room and shooting interior photography as a people place. Not every room or space is a showhouse and this needs to be reflected in the finished product. Sometimes a stack of carefully chosen magazines or a coffee table book will create the look you’re after. When we shoot Interior photography, our wealth of experience in this specialist area has proved invaluable when working closely with our clients. This extends across residential properties, commercial premises or industrial spaces.
