HOW WE WORK......
Dan and his team typically confer by phone or email with you several weeks before the shoot begins. We discuss objectives, setups, scheduling, etc. You will receive a comprehensive document of what to expect prior to, during and after the shoot. We know how important it is not to intrude on the guest experience and will schedule accordingly. We have shot over 500 hotels Nationally and Internationally for most of the major hotel brands, which makes us familiar and comfortable with brand guidelines.
We welcome your company during the shoot, but we are pretty self-sufficient so you can go about your normal day-to-day activities and just check in occasionally. Upon the conclusion of the photo shoot we will build a web gallery of retouched images for your perusal and approval, any changes you request will be made at this time. Once complete, we will upload final hi res files to MDAM, Hyatt Brand Manager or other Corporate media portals.
HOW WE PLAY.....
When not on the road doing commercial hotel shoots, Dan splits his time between his residence in Dallas and his ranch in SE Oklahoma. He more than likely has a fly rod in his hand and is trying to fool a helpless trout or bonefish somewhere.
Work spills into play when it comes to Merritt. You might find her decorating a house, refinishing furniture, shopping architectural salvage or scanning Houzz for new techniques and ideas. She loves well produced TV and Movies and keeps up with the latest in her evenings to relax.
