Shooting from the Roof of Your Hotel

Image

RAFAEL “RC” CONCEPCION

If you spot a high-rise hotel in the city you’re visiting and you’d like to shoot a sweeping cityscape from their roof, it’s pretty unlikely that they’ll give you permission to shoot up there. Well, that is unless you’re a guest in the hotel. I’ve found that if you’re a paying guest in the hotel, and you contact the hotel concierge (or a friendly front desk staffer), you’re fairly likely to get a few minutes to shoot on the roof (they will usually send you up there with a maintenance man or other hotel staffer). Also, if they have a rooftop lounge, and you want to shoot there in the off-hours when it’s closed, they’re usually more than happy to accommodate you—tripod and all. All you have to do is ask.
