Photographing Hotels


Biggin Hall is a 17th century country hotel in the heart of the Peak District in Derbyshire England. As you may expect open fires and the smell of fine food are just two of the experiences that greet you. It is a charming hotel furnished with antiques and many original features. This was my experience of Biggin Hall and I wanted to capture that in the external picture. Taken at dusk to make the most of the warm atmospheric lighting from inside the hotel and lit with a small amount of flash to provide a slightly cinematic quality to the picture. Of course nothing in photography is straight forward and I could only get one of the lights either side of the path to work. With patience and a helpful member of staff I managed to resolve the problem. The intention was to bring depth and warmth to the front of the hotel and I feel that I have achieved this.
