Part of The Savoy family, each one of our talented residents brings their unique expertise to enhance the experience and create memories for our guests.
The Collective You, created by renowned Canadian portrait photographer Dennis Gocer, can make even the most camera shy of guests feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the lens. The result is a stunning black and white portrait photograph, and the chance for everyone to have a golden moment in the spotlight – one that’s just for them.
The Savoy’s Photographer-in-Residence, Dennis Gocer, and his team will be taking up residency at The Savoy throughout 2019 to offer their portrait photography service to guests and to attend some of the high profile events taking place at the hotel.
- The Collective You’s next residency will take place in February 2019. Please contact us to arrange your photography session.
Damian Barr, award-winning writer, columnist and author of Maggie & Me, is The Savoy’s Literary Ambassador. Damian has revived the hotel’s famous Writer-in-Residence programme, will be introducing a Book Butler to oversee a seasonal library for guests, and continues to host his sell-out Literary Salons in the Lancaster Ballroom.
Each Writer-in-Residence brings their unique voice to the hotel and takes up residency at the hotel for up to three weeks, working on an exclusive story and appearing at different events.
- The last Writer-in-Residence was Sarah Perry. The next residency will take place in June 2019, with the writer to be announced soon. Please contact us if you’d like to find out more.
