Behind The Scenes With Erik Almas As He Shoots A New Ad Campaign For Westin Resorts

By Hanssie on June 24th 2013

home I remember the first time I stepped foot into a Westin Hotel. I had just shot an 11 hour wedding in San Diego. I was tired, grumpy and ready to get as much sleep as possible before having to get up for an engagement session and a client consult. Maybe it was hallucinations resulting from the exhaustion, but when I walked into the room, I was immediately transformed into this Zen-like atmosphere. The shower was more like a rainfall, the colors were muted, but trendy and the bed was like sleeping on clouds. I didn’t want to leave.

San Francisco based photographer Erik Almas was tasked to capture some of that Westin magic in a new ad campaign for the hotel. He shares with us a behind the scenes look of creating the ad campaign. Check it out.

Erik has won numerous awards for his work and has worked with some noteable clients such as the Intercontinental Hotel Group, American Airlines, Absolut, Ritz Carlton, Credit Suisse, Genentech, Union Pacific, Toyota, Hyatt, Puma, Pfizer, Microsoft and Nike. You can see more of his work on his blog HERE.
