Photographing a new hotel is an honour and I'm delighted to have been called upon by Best Western Plus Oceanside Kawana on the Sunshine Coast to create their first marketing image library.
The 4.5-star hotel, located in a new waterside suburb in close proximity to the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital, opened in November last year and I was brought in for a photoshoot shortly afterwards.
Only 10 minutes from beaches and 20 minutes from Sunshine Coast Airport, the hotel caters to both corporate and leisure travellers with accommodation choices including Deluxe rooms, Executive rooms and Executive suites. Its function spaces and the first-class Wildflower Restaurant + Bar, with executive chef Gareth Collins at the helm delivering modern cuisine in a relaxed setting with lake views, adds to the appeal.
In fact, I must confess, the opportunity to eat one of the restaurant's dinner menu items after the food photography element was something truly to savour! Delicious!
