Unfortunately, we don’t have an unlimited budget! After all, our trips are marketed to be ‘affordable-luxury’. As such, every trip has an allocated maximum budget set by our Managing Director based on a number of factors such as; total number of travellers, accommodation rental rate etc. With this in mind, the factors below must also align
Some destinations are better in ‘isolation’ where total privacy can be guaranteed whilst others require a more central location for easy reach to photoshoot locations or planned itinerary. For this factor, my local knowledge of all the destinations we offer really comes in handy. But truth be told, at times, I find myself walking the streets of some of these locations with the help of Googles Street View!
As well as serving as accommodation, our chosen villa or penthouse needs to have ‘photogenic features’. Although this process requires the approval of our Creative Director, there are some clear guidelines we look out for. Some of these include: direction of sunlight, shape of the swimming pool and it’s water colour (yes, that’s a thing), interior furnishings, window/balcony views and… well the list goes on.
The safety of our guest is absolutely paramount and this remains a major decision maker for us when it comes to selecting accommodation. Some key safety features we look out for includes gated properties, on-site security, alarm system, keyless entry and we do some neighbourhood research too.
As an added bonus, once all the above guidelines have been fulfilled, only then do we priorities the accommodations with more amenities. Apart from the standard amenities we will require, additional things such as the availability of faster wi-fi, always come in handy to improve the overall stay!
After all, organising a successful international photoshoot trip is not childs play and that’s why we utilise our resources and experience to ensure that all our trips are a productive and fun experience. So why not leave the stress of planning your trip to us and simply reserve a place on one of our upcoming group trips here.
All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveller is unaware.
