AUGUST 2016 TANGIERS, MOROCCO
Photography at the La Maison Blanche Hotel
Michelle and her crew returned to La Maison Blanche in Tangiers to add to the portfolio of images of the hotel. ”As a photographer, I approach each hotel in a very different way. You can´t carry out a photo shoot for a luxury contemporary city hotel in the same way as a small boutique hotel or a spa resort – every property is unique,” said Michelle. A riad is a traditional Moorish private home with a central patio; many of these have now been converted into small hotels. If the riad La Maison Blanche was outside of Morocco, it would be called a boutique hotel. Read more: http://www.hotelessencephotography.com/blog/riad-hotel-photography/

AUGUST 2016 CHESTER, UK
The Grosvenor Hotel Chester
As a dedicated lover of historic hotels and afternoon tea, Michelle was thrilled to experience the Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea served at the Grosvenor Hotel in Chester, a hotel with hospitality heritage stretching back over 150 years.
A contemporary twist on a traditional experience, offering “hearty fare, strong tea and good company”, the fare includes crusty doorstep sandwiches and chunky chips, as well as the typical scones with jam and cream, and chocolate cake. The Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea is not only popular with men, it’s been a big hit with the ladies too.
