Well Dick, I think any company would like to have a photographer such as yourself as an on-staff guy, unfortunately this person has no idea what he is doing. The images are horrible. Hand held with bright foregrounds, dim off color backgrounds with it seems little or no PS work, really bad and that is why I reached out.
I will never understand why someone selling a high end luxury item would use bad photography to sell it. And this is even more puzzling when, while eating Sunday brunch there with my family, they where complaining that sales for the hotel are down further then they want.
As for work on spec, exteriors would work maybe, but interiors would be impossible. I would need to get permission to not only show up with my camera and tripod, but all of the lights and my crew, impossible unless they wanted to commission the job.
I was thinking I would send a letter with a couple of prints and leave it at that (until maybe the spring).
