Show Off Your Inn with Our Professional Photography and Web Services
Professional Photography is an absolute MUST in today’s competitive Bed and Breakfast Market Place! Acorn Internet Services offers professional photography and Web services for bed and breakfast inns. Your Web site photography and design is as equally important as your SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Innkeepers spend thousands and thousands of dollars every year “driving” business to their Web site. You want to make sure that once you bring in those potential guests – you WOW THEM and win them over so they book a room at your B&B or inn. That “WOW” starts with professional photos and an up-to-date Web site design.
We will stage and customize photos specifically for your inn and inn style. Our photographer typically works alone but may request innkeeper assistance when setting up particular shots. We provide a CD of high-resolution, quality images, edited and ready for use in both printed materials and Web site design. Film and scanning costs easily drive up the cost of any photo shoot. We only shoot digital photos, allowing us to pass the savings on to you, the innkeeper. We know the life of an innkeeper can be hectic and busy, so our photographer strives to make the process as efficient and easy as possible.
Half Day $500
5 hours (includes post-production work in Photoshop)
The half-day shoot is perfect for small properties with only 2-3 guest rooms and guest baths. Five hours typically allows us to photograph the exterior of the Inn, (1) common area, food or dining shots, and up to (3) guest rooms and baths.
Whole Day $800
8 hours (includes post-production work in Photoshop)
The whole-day shoot works best for medium-sized properties with 4-6 guest rooms and baths. Eight hours typically allows us to photograph the exterior of the inn, (1-2) common areas, food or dining shots, and up to (6) guest rooms and baths.
Extended Custom $100/hour
If your property doesn’t fall into the “typical” Half or Whole Day criteria, or you simply want a more custom, extended photo session, we are happy to provide you with a customer quotation. For a custom quote, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
