Where it all started
Owner and photographer Steven Graffham originally hails from London, England and lived in the United States from 1988 to 2019, giving him dual citizenship. Steven recently moved to Salzburg, Austria with his family to further expand his international experiences and currently holds Austrian Residency. His beginnings in the travel industry and extensive experience in travel management finally merged with his passion for photography in 2003 as Winter Park Photography was born – his multidimensional travel-based background giving him a unique insight into the potential needs and wants of hotel and resort clients. He is also bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish fluently and is slowly learning German.
Today, he continues to enthusiastically travel internationally and having a European base in Salzburg, Austria allows for easy access to European destinations as well as traveling across to the U.S. and Caribbean, photographing hotels and resorts. In 2013 with the advent of drones for photography he expanded his array of skills to include video and aerial drone photography, becoming your company’s all encompassing source for high quality visual marketing assets.
Photo Shoot Manager/Stylist
Why you need Kathryn on your shoot
Over the past decade and a half, Kathryn has led Digital Marketing efforts for 100+ hotels, including the management and styling of 100+ photo shoots for independent hotels and branded hotels in the Hilton, Marriott, Hyatt & IHG family of brands. She understands the importance of excellent photography – Expedia reports that doubling the quantity of a property’s photos can boost booking rate by 4.5% and will allow you to increase ADR by $3.50.
One of the most crucial aspects of hotel photography that is often overlooked is styling. An excellent stylist is part editor, part designer, part producer. Different hotel brands require different styling guides. Because she has worked closely with the major brands, Kathryn offers an extensive knowledge base of Brand Photography Guidelines.
Her experience with Winter Park Photography includes renovations, new builds, brand required updates, F&B photography, and lifestyle. She’s not only a “plus” to have on a shoot, but instead is a “must”!
