Hotel Metropole's Family

Here is a project i did few years ago but wich is always on my mind !
BBS agency called me to shoot the greetings card of the famous five stars Hotel Metropole...
We had "carte blanche" ... So Lucio, the creative director, wanted to create a family portrait with a colonial style.
 
The fun part was: we had to use the real employees of the Hotel... and find a chic dog !

Firt step was spotting the good place on the Hotel ...
We had the choise ... Every cm is gorgeous !!
We finally choosed the big Rubinstein room for the symmetry and the fabulous stained glasses.
So i received a precise layout from agency but we discused together with Lucio...
It was important to have a very precise idea of what we have to shoot! 
Because we have juste one day to do it :)
And here we go ...
I shot everyone separately and bough some stockphotos (yes, i didnt have tiger or zebra in my pockets, sorry !)
Some zooms on details
Final result after two days of retouching!
Video of the step by step ... sorry for the colors on this video and txs youtube for this bullshit conversion :)
