Three great benefits of fine art photography for hotels and businesses
There are many advantages to commissioning special pieces of art for your business. Here are some of the roles that fine art photography can play in the workplace.
1. Fine art photography as an extension of your brand
Your choices of design in your hotel or workplace communicates your brand to your employees and visitors. Buying art for your hotel rooms or corporate offices is an easy way to brand your interiors with photography that reflects your values and identity.
Many of Enda’s pieces can relate to your industry. A business with a modern, innovative slant, for example, would find much inspiration in Enda’s architectural photography series. Tourism businesses may want to feature Enda’s Irish landscapes or other depictions of nature.
Fine art photography communicates your message into a space with ease. Enda recognizes the uniqueness of every business, and the creative energy that’s required to find the perfect photograph or series for your corporate setting.
2. Fine art as part of psychologically healthy environments
Something special happens when you start your workday in an environment that appreciates and displays artwork. There’s a more engaging, dynamic atmosphere that improves your efficiency and makes you feel calmer.
Businesses that invest in art invest in their own employees, in their own “restorative environments,” with tangible benefits of art in the workplace: increased productivity, improved morale, and enhanced engagement.
New research suggests that psychologically healthy environments that display representations of nature can reduce people’s anxiety and stress, and improve mental health and social relationships.
Enda’s landscape photography series are a great match for companies, hotels, spas, and other businesses that want to reduce their employee and visitors’ stress and provide calm, peaceful environments that encourage self-reflection.
3. Fine art photography as a sound corporate investment
Fine art photography is an art, but it’s also good business. Many hotels and companies consider fine art as part of their corporate social responsibility, and many such collectibles have increased in value over the years. It’s a way of diversifying corporate assets to provide a backup against unstable financial products.
Businesses that invest in art invest in their employees, their guests, and their community. It’s commitment to supporting the arts, as well as a sound business decision.
Owning a piece or series by Enda Cavanagh is an investment in authentic Irish fine art, and a mark of appreciation of Enda’s talent and established credentials as a fine art photographer.
Buying art in Ireland could be a tax-effective purchase. Speak to your accountant about allowing the purchase of art against tax. If you display it in your business site where it’s visibly by the public (like a reception, meeting rooms, or a canteen), you may be able to use the annual ‘wear and tear allowance’ of 12.5% on of the diminishing amount over 8 years, which translates into about 30% of the gross cost of the artwork. Please discuss all art-related investments with your accountant.

Enda’s fine art photography consultation
Enda is an experienced professional who enjoys working with clients on finding the right piece for a room that reflects the goals for their business.
Enda’s series work well as pieces featured on large walls or as individual pieces in several different rooms.
With his background in architecture, design and architectural/landscape photography, Enda will facilitate the selection process by discussing with you what types of images are to your taste and what would work in the space.
For hotels, corporations, and organizations that are interested in fine art photography, Enda offers an onsite visit, where he will help select artwork for the space.
For such projects, Enda provides mockups of the space where you wish to hang artwork with the photographs you’ve selected. He calls this, “Making the images sing.”
Incredible detail for bespoke sizing
Enda uses top-of-the-line equipment and particular skill to produce extremely high resolution images, including panoramic shots.
He strives to produce images with incredible detail, where viewers can get lost in. His landscape photography, sized to complete a large space, is when the images truly ‘sing.’

He uses multiple camera platforms, including a Phase One IQ3 100 – a 100-megapixel medium format digital back on an Arca Swiss RL3Di Technical Camera and 32mm, 40mm, and 90mm Rodenstock lenses, renowned globally as state-of-the-art lenses .
