New artists bringing our holidays to life and to your screen

For decades we have worked with the wonderful Rob Allen to bring our holiday images to your screen but with the Covid travel challenges earlier in the year we had to scratch our heads and ponder some fresh local talent to photograph our new property in Val d’Isère and Les Arcs.

Every cloud has a silver lining of course, and we feel blessed to have found not one, but two extremely talented photographers who have just completed amazing photo-shoots on our behalf:

Christophe Hassel

... is, conveniently for us, now permanently based in Val d’Isère. His passion for photography became his profession whilst travelling through Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Japan in the early 2000’s.

Not only a professional photographer but drone pilot to boot, Christophe has an impressive client portfolio including Warren Millers and Planks. To say we are impressed with his interior photography is somewhat of an understatement, but he also shoots sports and events. Check out his website or on instagram @christophehassel

A huge thank you to Christophe, who has perfectly captured the space, luxury and charm of No 8 CLUB Bellevarde.

Richard Roberts

... is our second jackpot find! Richard trained as professional television cameraman in the UK, working for clients such as the BBC, ITV, S4C and Sky. Luckily for us he decided to settle in the Alps to pursue his passion for ski and photography.

Now based in Courchevel in the Trois Vallées ski area, he specialises in interior, lifestyle, sports and product photography. Check out his website or on instagram @richrobertsphoto

Rich has the titanic task of capturing Bear Resort on film and has already spent several days in Arc 1950 capturing the Bear Lodge hotel, spa and 12 wonderful suites. We’re absolutely thrilled with the pics we’ve received so far with loads more in edit and coming to our website soon.

Find the artist in you

If you're staying with us this winter and fancy yourself as the artist, we'd love to see your pictures on our social media channels. Please do tag us on Instagram @vip_ski_official and we look forward to seeing your interpretation of our holidays.

Enjoy the slopes.
