May Fair Hotel – Be Mayfair Campaign
I recently shot a global campaign for the May Fair hotel in London and I’m excited to finally share these visuals with you all! This is an international campaign so you’ll probably be seeing the shoot in magazines, newspapers as well as digital and social platforms very soon!
Commissioned by Saatchi Pro and produced by Mana Production, the campaign was created to showcase the lifestyle of the hotel and everything it has to offer – from shopping, weddings and spa breaks.
The unique part of shooting the campaign was getting to work with the hotel staff – who were cast and featured in each visual. We shot all 8 visuals over two days in various locations in and around the hotel.
As a photographer it’s my job to tell a story. As a commercial photographer it’s my job to elevate a brand’s story even if I am working under direction.
For me – the inclusion of hotel staff and using the hotel as the location makes me feel like I am part of a campaign that tells a real brand story – an authentic one.
