Why Use Hostel Doctor Photography Services?
Why Professional Photography is Important
Photos of your hostel will be available everywhere on the internet, whether you put them there or not. You will be in other people's facebook pages, Pinterest, Instagram, Flicker, Google Plus, Blog posts and everything in between. With so many pictures out of your control, it is good to have some that are. So since you have the opportunity - why not show your hostel in the best possible light? We can make the photos of your hostel that you want to share, whether it's interior shots and bedrooms, or parties and events.
Share Your Hostel Experience
No one wants to stay somewhere that looks bad in the photos - they want to see somewhere clean, fun, comfortable and safe. Use photography to tell the story of your hostel - the activities you offer, introduce your staff, showcase your facilities, show some fun party shots. You're selling an experience more than a bed.
Use Quality Photos Across All Merchandise
Once you have good quality photos you can use them not only on all your online profiles but also offline. High quality images are perfect for flyers, posters and any other merchandise you want to print. Once you have a good set of quality pictures you can keep reusing them, then just add party pictures and events to your professional portfolio.
The whole world is addicted to social media photo posting - so make the most of it. All the photos you use can be re-used by someone else. Make sure they're Pinterest friendly and you have set up some hashtags so people can tag you on Instagram. You can even take 'selfies' of your hostel team to share on social media!
