The other good place for commercial photography or videography is in hotels. We often think restaurants are as far as we go, but hotels are great for commercial work and you should definitely reach out to us even if you feel like they’re out of your league.

It can feel intimidating to reach out, but if you really want to work with them, don’t hold back, reach out to them. Be confident in your abilities and know what you can accomplish when you get the job.
