A couple of months into COVID, a great-looking brief landed in our inbox that seemed like it came from another time. It was so 2019 in the middle of 2020. We quickly set up a call with the client to discuss their need: shoot and retouch about 100 photographs. Nothing to sneeze at, right?
We discussed the parameters, expectations, limitations, and all the typical stuff that goes along with shooting a hotel grand opening. To keep to their originally scheduled mid-July opening date, the client decided to reduce the number of attendees. We hustled hard to land the job and were thrilled when we learned we’d won the business. Then the realization sunk in: we’d be shooting at an open hotel with guests, all while still following all safety precautions. Just another challenge. But, as we’ve learned, it’s all about how it’s produced.
