LEADING HOTELS OF THE WORLD x GSTAAD PALACE
Last year we shoot an ad campaign for Bright Red Agency through Wonderful Machine.
We shot for Leading Hotels of the World, in the magnificent Gstaad Palace in Switzerland.
I would like to thank Craig from WM for putting together this insane campaign!

The agency Bright Red asked us to produce a digital campaign for Leading Hotels of the World, focusing on the unique amenities of four resort properties around the world. To manage this, we broke the four photoshoots down into two objectives: cozy winter amenities and sunny tropical activities. We collaborated with the agency to help find photographers/directors in each location, and to manage four unique productions from start to finish.
The first production took place in Colorado at the Sonnenalp Vail Luxury Resort, and we brought on Denver-based photographer Bryce Boyer as the director/photographer. Each shoot called for a combination of stills and video, and we worked with Bryce to assemble a small crew capable of capturing both simultaneously. We cast two talents, along with a few members of the hotel staff, and the small team consisted of Bryce, a camera operator, an assistant, a digital tech, and a hair/makeup stylist. Senior Producer Bryan Sheffield coordinated the production and was on-site to manage the tech scout with the client and agency and oversee the shoot day production and shot list execution. We even sampled some of the traditional bavarian coffee that was featured in the shoot!
For the second production, the team went abroad to Switzerland, to highlight the 100-year-old Gstaad Palace where photographer Thomas Bekker helped capture this fairytale location and historic landmark. Similar to the first shoot, a small team came together to capture the content of various amenities and experiences, including a fondue dinner, a stunning nightclub, and winter-themed excursions.
