Hotel and Food Photography in Los Angeles

Friday, April 30th, 2010


Looking for a cozy place to stay next time you are in Woodland Hills? One of my new clients, Holiday Inn Express can provide that with their new Ventura Boulevard location. Featuring 85 rooms, plus several large suites, pool, and breakfast service daily. The comfortable lobby has a large screen TV and a is a perfect spot for a casual client meeting. This area of Woodland Hills is centrally located and has great access to freeway off ramps and on ramps. The Hotel also features a huge motor court and plenty of protective parking. Most of the architectural photography was done during the day as the sun exposure was perfect to light the interiors using some additional lighting. The exteriors and parking structures were saved for the exotic Night Time Photography which is my trademark.

If you decide you have the taste for some exquisite French food, one of LA’s finest french resturants¬†Brandywine, is a few short blocks walking distance from the hotel. As Photo Editor and Senior Staff Photographer for “Spaces” magazine, it was my job to photograph outstanding chefs and restaurants for magazine publication. Food Photography is always fun as there are wonderful added benefits! I was lucky to have been to able to enjoy the Brandywine experience first hand. The small but efficient kitchen turns gourmet meals daily for lunch and dinner. This dining adventure will cost you a bit, but you will enjoy the fresh daily menu of the finest fresh meats and vegetables.

After an evening out of fine dining or a romantic lunch, you will need to return to your Holiday Inn private suite for a little rest and relaxation. The short walk back to the Hotel will help you walk off your dinner!!!!!!!
