  • Swan Shoot for The Hotel Bel Air - Los Angeles, California
    New Branding for a Famous Los Angeles Landmark
  • Commercial Animal Lifestyle Photographer, Barbara O'Brien, was recently commisioned by & Smith Design, a London based creative agency and the Hotel Bel Air™ , part of The Dorchester Collection™ to create a series of swan images to grace over 80  different items as part of a new look for the famed Los Angeles landmark.  The shoot required a number of trained swans and an outdoor pen complete with a small wading pool to keep the swans comfortable between sessions.

    O'Brien's prior career as an animal actor trainer gave her the skills she needed to not only source the correct swans for the job but the ability to capture their true beauty in a relaxed and calm environment.
