Gone are the days of the blurry holiday selfie, thanks to Travelshoot Staycations at QT Hotels and Resorts.

Wannabe Insta stars staying at QT Hotels now have the chance to travel like a famous blogger and build an Insta feed of their own full of professionally shot photos.

As part of the package, guests are invited to stay in a ‘photo-ready QT guestroom’ for a two night Travelshoot Staycation with a difference.

During the stay, Travelshoot’s expert team will take guests on a one-hour photo shoot with a professional photographer and walk away with a minimum of 20 high-resolution and very Insta-worthy shots.


QT Gold Coast

“There are so many perfect places for a Travelshoot at QT Hotels and Resorts with the quirky designer guestrooms, playful lobby spaces, groovy restaurants and bars and chic spaQ proving to be the most popular spots for photo opportunities. Not to mention the iconic beachside and city locations of each hotel”

Says Travelshoot co-founder, Sarah Pearce.

Travelshoot is a Gold Coast initiative powered by the creative sibling duo, Sarah Pearce and Tim Jones that connects guests at QT Gold Coast, QT Melbourne, QT Sydney and QT Canberra with professional photographers to capture high quality shots of their designer holiday.

The idea itself came from a personal holiday experience.

“A few years back my husband and I took our first trip to New York. A friend of mine was a photographer based in the city, and we were his ‘test customers’ for a few photos along Brooklyn Bridge for his new website”

explains Pearce.

“The hour provided us with 10 images that we got to keep – they featured the most spectacular New York cityscape on sunset. Instead of candid selfies or trusting other tourists to get photos of us together like we usually do when we travelled.”

And so Travelshoot was born.

Travelshoot have also partnered with Flight Centre and most recently, Shark Tank pitchers Crooked Compass.

The Travelshoot Staycation starts from $465 per room, per night and includes:

  • Two nights of QT guestroom accommodation at either QT Gold Coast, QT Melbourne, QT Sydney or QT Canberra
  • Daily breakfast for two adults
  • One-hour photoshoot with Travelshoot in and around the hotel
  • 20 professional high-resolution images to remember your stay
  • Valid for stays until 23rd December 2017, subject to availability
