The Grand Wailea Resort in Maui is looking to retain the services of a Main Creative Photographer who will acquire a three-thirty day period residency at the lodge, day by day meals and beverage stipend, and $10,000 to seize imagery of the just lately renovated assets.
The lodge, which is a Waldorf Astoria Resort, recently concluded phase a single of a renovation (what it phone calls a “property-large refresh”) which incorporates a recently revitalized Botero Lounge, entirely updated Napua rooms, suites, and personal lounge, and up to date two of its on-site eating venues, Ikena and Loulu. As these places are all freshly renovated, the lodge necessitates up to date pictures to publicize the spaces and is wanting for a photographer to fill that want.
The part of Main Resourceful Photographer will be tasked with capturing “the essence” of the vacation resort by providing high-high quality images of these refreshed venues, food items and beverage choices, general vacation resort imagery, and other photo needs. As a final result, the ideal photographer will have expertise capturing a range of kinds from landscape and architecture to food and liquids. Under are some illustrations of the high-quality of illustrations or photos the hotel expects.
In trade, the Grand Wailea Resort will present a a few-thirty day period residency at the house exactly where the selected photographer will also get a day-to-day foodstuff and beverage stipend, complimentary on-property programming to fully immerse them in the Grand Wailea knowledge and put together them for what they would be expected to capture, and $10,000.
While on-web-site residencies are not an unusual way for accommodations to search for marketing imagery, the Grand Wailea Hotel separates itself by not only giving space and board but also real funds payment. For instance, Lodge Ranga in Iceland has issued a comparable contact for a photographer in trade for on-site keep two yrs in a row, but does not present a income of any kind.
“We designed the Main Imaginative Photographer residency as a way to genuinely seize what would make Grand Wailea these a exclusive destination on Maui,” JP Oliver, running director of Grand Wailea, suggests.
“We seem forward to opening our doorways to an individual with an artistic eye and an appreciation for the hard work which is long gone into the resort’s refresh. We cannot wait around to see Grand Wailea introduced to daily life through the material our new CCP captures all through their time on residence.”
To be considered for Grand Wailea’s Chief Resourceful Photographer residency, the resort is asking all fascinated functions to e mail their resume and portfolio to [email protected] by Wednesday, March 1, 2023.
