Roman Spa Resort: Hospitality & Lifestyle Photography

Working again with the team at Roman Spa Hot Springs in Calistoga felt like coming home. Micheal and Kathy Quast (proprietors of the resort) were wonderfully welcoming to our crew and talent during our stay. Creative collaboration with Kathy and Elyse was easy and fun. We had a blast creating hospitality and lifestyle photography and video at this historic and luxurious resort.

While the primary purpose of this shoot was to create still images, we also added video to the project without dramatically increasing the budget. By leveraging the production resources we’d already committed to still photography (creative, logistics, hair/makeup, props, styling, etc.) we were able to create valuable additional content at a minimal cost.

A big thank you to my talented and hard working crew – YOU made this shoot a success! Caroline Hall (Producer/Stylist), Will Nail (Camera Operator), Sara Ashton (HMUA), Deb Wilson (1st Assistant), Sara Vasquez (2nd Assistant), Ben Chartier (Intern), Peggy Kinstler (Retoucher) and Vegar Abelsnes (Video Editing). 

One of the many delights of this project was the opportunity to include my son Ben as a part of the crew (Ben’s studying film production in high school) A huge thank you everyone for welcoming Ben as part of the team and helping him learn about our crazy industry!
