DoubleTree Hotel - Hot Springs Arkansas

Many years ago, having recently moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas, I traveled to the Clarion Hotel in Hot Springs for the Arkansas Professional Photographers convention to take my Certified Professional Photographers test (I passed BTW). Little would I know many years later, I would photograph that same building as the completely renovated DoubleTree Hotel.

Hotels are fun to photograph, I get to see all the areas that not everyone gets to see, but most of all I'm envisioning how these photos will draw guests in, how can I compose, stage or light this room/area so that a guests, upon seeing it, will want to stay here.

You can see some behind the scenes of what it sometimes takes to get the lighting right… enjoy!


Not something you see often, but it had to be done to get the right lighting to avoid distractions and reflections in the glass :)


And after four photos composited….
