Together Lisa and Kevin have photographed some of the most spectacular resorts in the world. Capturing the significant beauty of luxury resorts is this duo’s specialty. They blend expansive interiors with emotive details to tell a visual story that is utterly compelling to the viewer. Resorts such as the award-winning Viceroy Ubud regularly commission Kevin and Lisa to photograph their resort to powerfully drive marketing presence with excellent imagery.

Real Photo’s stunning resort images have often gone viral on social media with one image having hundreds of thousands of FB likes at the last count!


“Real Photo worked with challenging conditions – such as small plane rides to remote islands, carrying gear, operating drones, and multiple exposures to ensure a very high bar for the end product. We have used a handful of professional photographers at our resort in the past, but the images from Real Photo are by far our favorite – and the ones we use on all of our online portfolios.”
