Anthony Grote Photography, specialist Lodge Photographer, has been covering Lodge and Hotel Photography for many years, photographing in many countries in and around the African continent. From South Africa, Seychelles, Zanzibar, Mozambique, Namibia to Zambia. In 2014 saw me heading to Zambia for the first time. Part of that trip was to photograph several Lodges in the Kafue National Park. I was blown away by this area as I had never been here and thus did not know what to expect. i was extremely pleased when the same clients asked me to return, in 2015, to photograph other aspects of their Lodge portfolio’s, and build on what we had gathered the previous trip.
Back to the Kafue I headed in July 2015, to photograph Mukambi Lodges and Kaingu Lodge. Mukambi have added a new Lodge to their portfolio, Fig Tree Bush Camp. Kaingu had added some new rooms. Building on the Lodge portfolio side, we also concentrated on the Lifestyle aspect of what the Lodges had to offer in the way of activities – all while adding to their content pool in order for them to leverage their SOCIAL MEDIA accounts and marketing in order to garner more guests visiting the area.
So the brief was to cover these new additions plus cover various Lifestyle aspects of the Lodges, including game drives, paddling, walks, bushdinners etc. Great tasks and great results.
Mukambi Safari Lodge had an added aspect to try show the relation between the rooms and the river. Now this was not an easy task, until I realized I could use one of my favourite techniques, panoramas to show this perfectly. The top 3 images below are NOT cropped images, but blended images of between 3-5 images to produce a high res panorama to showcase the full scene as found on the ground. This produced the exact results wanted by the client.
Thus no task is too difficult, and I will go to all lengths to capture the essence of a clients Portfolio in the uniqueness that the situation offers. To cover your portfolio, please do not hesitate to contact Anthony Grote Photography for your Lodge Photographs.
