I was very fortunate to have spent last weekend at “The Summerhouse“, a luxurious coastal retreat overlooking Byron Bay, and had an opportunity to take some Architecture / Real Estate shots.
The Summerhouse offers luxury bed and breakfast style accommodation – with 6 luxury suites, clustered around a common lounge/dining/kitchen/pool area. It is quite a unique concept, because staff are there during the day to service rooms, cook breakfast and meet and greet guests, but there is no-one around on site at night, so it very much feels like your own place. There are also great opportunities to meet and chat with other guests (and plenty of breakout areas where you can do your own thing if you prefer).
I didn’t treat this as a proper commercial shoot, so didn’t worry about special lighting, or HDR, but here are some of my happy snaps of this awesome place (I will definitely be back).
