We are primarily a luxury boutique hotel, with 8 individually themed rooms.
Although our regular overnight guests are our main priority, when available, we do also have a number of photographers who use the rooms for shoots at various times (during the daytime, or evening, subject to availability).
We now regularly host a group shoot for 7 great photographers and 7 lovely models, roughly every 3-4 months. Please see the casting calls for more information (as although we host them at the hotel, we don't manage the participants chosen, this is organised by at least one of the models).
All rooms were fully renovated to a very high standard, in 2007, and are well maintained. Photographers often comment on how everywhere you look is a backdrop.
All bookings are subject to availability (our regular guests must come first, particularly if you're only booking a room for a few hours to shoot).
We also have restrictions on what we allow to be shot here.
- No 'open leg' or higher is allowed at any time (our hotel rooms are very recognisable, and we have a brand to maintain).
- Art nude, lingerie, and tasteful topless should be okay, but again this will vary per person. Essentially it's photography that's in-keeping with the hotel's theme and style. Please see our 'shoots styles' for a list of what is typically acceptable.
To check out the great array of photos already taken here at the hotel, please see the link below to images tagged with our location (ie the link to 'More images taken at Hotel de Vie' should have quite a few!)
