This is the room – I mentioned in my first post about Hotel Bär - that I wanted to make a photo in.
It’s this old dinning room right next to the kitchen, with this wonderful old ceiling and benches round the walls. if you forget the electric lightning – and a few other modern things – it almost felt a little like going a 100 years back in time when you step into the room. I really like that they kept the room in this old style, it really makes it nice and cozy.
That’s the last Hotel Bär photo for now, I still have a few left, but I’ll save those for later.
NB: Happy birthday Stephen King.
I ended up spending almost a whole day, one early morning and around an hour on our last day there, making the photos of the hotel, lucky for me Markus knew the price for good photos, and he offered us to cancel our bill – we had breakfast every morning and a few suppers at the hotel during our stay – and pay back the money we all ready paied for the room. We gladly accepted.
And that way this little photo shoot ended up as my very first assignment abroad.
Thanks for the trust and being a good photo assistant Markus.
The photo above is the entrance of the hotel, it was the very first photo I made for them.
Continued from yesterday.
So I ended up spend most of the day with Markus – that’s the name of the son – making photos of the hotel.
I was rather fun and a bit of a challenge to try to make those kind of commercial photos you see every, but still keep my own touch and style in there.
I really had a great time running around all over the place making photos I thought would make a great impression of the hotel.
The one above we made from the top of their barn , which lies right next to the hotel, in order to get up high enough we had to climb out onto the roof of the barn, which was quiet slippery, but we both made it – Markus with ease, because he is used to climbing mountains – out and back again without breaking anything.
I’ll finish up the story tomorrow.
Here’s another one from my trip to north Jutland a little more than a month ago. The name of the hotel is Svinkløv Badehotel, badehotel means “bath hotel” if you translate it directly from Danish, but the real meaning is that “bade” means to go for a swim in the ocean, and well “hotellet” means the hotel, so the name would be something like “go for a swim hotel”
