Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta is the third Hyatt inclusive destination in Mexico and the first for the new brand. Hyatt Ziva is creating a pampered guest experience with modern renovations, signature cuisine, and an amazing beach.
With the Ziva brand, Hyatt is targeting North American guests with an all-inclusive program and amenities more commonly found at five star properties. My goal while shooting this hotel and its $20 million renovations was to show the quiet sophistication of the changes to the site, and the appeal to hip urbanites.
I photographed in a low impact process that was respectful of the guests in-house, delivering more than thirty photos from a nine-hour shooting period. The art direction and styling I handled as I went along. Back in the studio, I then oversaw a detailed Photoshop post-production phase to deliver publish-perfect photos.
As a renowned photographer of hotels, resorts and exclusive homes, I understand the global audience. I have been the photographer of seven books of architecture and design, including Hawaii: a Sense of Place, now in its third edition. Marketing directors, F&B managers, publicists & hotel operators look to me as a top professional that knows how to market hospitality with photos that are inviting and natural.
