Showcasing Waterton Park Hotel: A Premier Photographic Commission by Phil Sproson Photography

At Phil Sproson Photography, I am dedicated to capturing the essence and beauty of locations through professional and high-quality photography. Recently, I had the pleasure of completing a commission for Amaze Hotels at the prestigious Waterton Park Hotel. This commission focused on creating photographic assets for their website and marketing materials, highlighting the property’s unique features and luxurious offerings.

The Waterton Park Hotel, which is close to Wakefield and situated on an island with acres of gorgeous rolling parkland surrounding it, is a stunning destination. It is renowned for its picturesque setting and historical charm. Our goal was to encapsulate this beauty and convey the elegance and sophistication of the hotel through my photography.

The Importance of Professional Hotel Photography

Professional hotel photography is crucial for creating a compelling online presence. High-quality images can significantly impact a potential guest’s perception of the property, influencing their decision to book. At Phil Sproson Photography, I specialise in capturing the best aspects of a hotel, from the grand exteriors to the intricate details of the interiors. For Waterton Park Hotel, I aimed to highlight the architectural beauty, luxurious amenities, and serene surroundings.

Exterior Photography

One of the key aspects of our commission was to capture the stunning exteriors of Waterton Park Hotel. The hotel’s unique location on an island makes it a standout feature. I focused on photographing the hotel from various angles to showcase its grandeur and the surrounding natural beauty. The lush green parkland, tranquil lake, and historic architecture were captured in a way that highlights the serenity and elegance of the property.

Interior Photography

The interiors of Waterton Park Hotel exude luxury and comfort. I aimed to capture the sophistication and warmth of the hotel’s interiors, from the opulent lobby and elegant dining areas to the cosy guest rooms and state-of-the-art spa facilities. Each photograph was taken with careful consideration of lighting, composition, and detail to ensure that the images convey the hotel’s inviting and luxurious atmosphere.

Key Features of Waterton Park Hotel

Waterton Park Hotel offers a range of amenities and features that make it a premier destination for travellers. The photography commission aimed to highlight these key features, ensuring that potential guests can see and appreciate the quality and variety of offerings available.

Dining and Culinary Excellence

One of the standout features of Waterton Park Hotel is its dining options. The hotel boasts an array of dining experiences, from fine dining in the elegant Bridgewalk Restaurant to more casual meals in the Charlie’s Bar. The photography aimed to capture the ambiance and culinary excellence of these dining venues, showcasing the beautifully presented dishes, stylish décor, and the overall dining experience.


The accommodation at Waterton Park Hotel is designed for comfort and luxury. Each room is meticulously decorated, offering a blend of modern amenities and classic elegance. The photographs captured the spaciousness, comfort, and stylish design of the guest rooms and suites, providing potential guests with a glimpse of what they can expect during their stay.

Leisure and Wellness Facilities

The hotel’s leisure and wellness facilities are another highlight. Waterton Park Hotel features a state-of-the-art spa, a well-equipped fitness centre, and an indoor swimming pool. The photography aimed to showcase these facilities, highlighting the tranquil spa treatment rooms, the modern fitness equipment, and the serene pool area. These images are designed to appeal to guests looking for relaxation and rejuvenation during their stay.
