Airbnb Photography Services for Airbnbs & Holiday Lets

Your Airbnb property should feel to your hosts somewhere between a home and a hotel. To achieve this, high quality presentation is key. Your listing should show off your Airbnb’s best features. Often these are architectural features within your property or items of furniture, but it can also be beneficial to show off elements of the local area too, as the location is often as important to potential guests as the accommodation itself.

In addition to the usual interior photography, we also specialise in video walkthrough tours and drone photography & videos for your airbnb for that extra wow factor.

Our Airbnb service includes the removal of unwanted wires, neatening up bed sheets and making sure that your rooms are well presented and attractive to potential bookers.

You’ll get full copyright ownership for all the photos and videos, and everything you’ll receive will be edited to a high professional standard and sent back to you within 48 hours. I can work to faster deadlines if needed.

Bespoke shoots and prices are also available – just call or message me to discuss your exact needs.

Photos that pay for themselves

Get up to 20% more bookings

Airbnb hosts with professional photos make up to 20% more than other hosts in the same area simply because professional quality photos make their lettings look better than the competition, and help potential guests understand the space better, highlighting any unique features or amenities that could set a BNB apart from others.

Recover your costs in 1 booking

The average Airbnb host can usually easily recoup the cost of professional Airbnb photos with just one booking, as listings with professional photos really do show off your property and could increase your bookings immediately. The photos are then yours to keep and use forever, and with full copyright, you can use them in all marketing materials and on any website, making it a great investment.

Oliver is great, there’s no other way to put it. Always on time and goes the extra mile at every opportunity. His editing skills are fantastic and his work consistently gets me instructions when I show potential clients our previous sales and the marketing material he has produced for my company.

Always a great professional service offered by Oliver. He captured detailed images of our showroom apartments and communal areas which had a massive impact on the marketing and generated lots of interest from potential residents. He comes highly recommended and look forward to working with him again in the future on other schemes.

I found the quality of Oliver's work to be extremely good. He has an excellent eye for detail and knows how a room should be presented to show it off best. I found him to be very pleasant to deal with, no faff and turned round the photos quickly. I've just booked him again for another of my properties. Would highly recommend.

I have worked with Oliver closely over the past 12 months and he has become our go-to guy when it comes to photographing our property portfolio. We started out as a new company and had issues with a couple of photographers before coming across Oliver. Since his first job, he has photographed over a dozen of our properties. The images are always of a brilliant quality which we use across our adverts, website and in brochures. Oliver not only delivers with quality photos but always is on time for appointments, is not afraid to be hands on when needed and does not rush. Cannot be recommended enough!

Why use a professional photographer for your Airbnb photos?

There are many benefits to having your Airbnb photos taken by a professional photographer. As a host, you want to showcase your property in the best possible light, and professional photos can make all the difference in attracting guests and increasing bookings.


First and foremost, professional photos are of higher quality than amateur photos. A professional photographer has the knowledge, skills, and equipment to capture the best possible images of your property. This includes using the right lighting, composition, and post-processing techniques to create photos that are clear, sharp, and inviting.

Professional photos are also more likely to accurately and beautifully represent your property. A professional photographer knows how to capture the unique features and amenities of your space, and how to present them in a way that will appeal to potential guests. This is especially important when it comes to showcasing the overall style and character of your property.

We stage your property

In addition to the quality of the photos, a professional Airbnb photographer can also help to improve the overall presentation of your property. Before the shoot, we will offer advice and guidance on how to prepare, style and your space, and then on the day we will professional stage the property, professionally light it (as well as utilise natural light when possible) and move anything around that we feel may improve your property’s presentation. We will also advise on how to use the photos in your Airbnb listing to maximize their impact.

Increase your listing's visibility

Having professional Airbnb photos can also help to increase your property’s visibility on the platform. In today’s competitive holiday rental market, it’s important to have high-quality photos that will grab the attention of potential guests. Professional photos can help to make your listing stand out from the crowd, and can give you a competitive edge when it comes to attracting bookings.

Get more bookings

High-quality, professional photos is the best way to showcase your property, and show potential clients that it is well-maintained, stylish, and worth the price you are charging. This can not only increase the number of bookings you receive, but also enables you to increase the amount you can charge for each booking.

Photos which last for years

Paying for professional photos of your airbnb is great value because you only pay for the service once, but you get to use the photos forever on your listing, increasing your bookings and revenue from your property for many years, making it a very worthwhile investment.

In summary, there are many benefits to having your photos taken by a professional. From the higher quality and accuracy of the photos, to the improved presentation of your property and increased visibility on the platform, professional airbnb photography can help you attract more guests and earn more revenue from your property.

About Me

As an experienced property photographer with over 10 years of experience, I have had the opportunity to photograph hundreds of properties for hosts looking to showcase their space on the popular holiday letting platform. It’s a fun job, allowing me to not only help property owners increase their bookings and income, but also to see some truly stunning homes and locations.

As a photographer, my goal is not just to make sure photos accurately represent the property, but also to capture the essence of each space, highlighting its unique features and amenities, while also creating inviting and attractive images that will catch potential guest’s eyes. To achieve this, I use pro photography equipment and techniques, including the use of natural light, strategic composition, and post-processing editing.

One of the challenges of being an Airbnb photographer is that no two properties are the same. Each space has its own character and style, and it’s my job to accurately represent that in the photos. This means that I need to be flexible and adaptable, as well as having a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of the visual elements that make a property stand out from the competition.

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of photographing a wide variety of Airbnb properties, from cosy studios to luxurious mansions and modern city centre apartments. No matter the size or style of the space, my goal is always the same: to create photos that accurately and beautifully represent the property, and that will help the host attract more bookings.

In addition to taking high-quality photos, I also offer advice and guidance to hosts on how to improve the overall presentation of their property. This can include suggestions for staging, styling, and lighting, as well as advice on how to use the photos in their property listing to maximize its impact and appeal.

What happens on the day of the shoot?

I will show up for the photoshoot at the scheduled time, which is usually in the morning as daylight hours are ideal for taking pictures. You might think photos during sunrise or sunset will look romantic and appealing, but in reality, they make for gloomy indoor photos! 

When I get there, we will talk over every detail of the photography session and establish your objectives for it. Then, after carefully examining the location, it is time to discuss the staging. Your property should already be de-cluttered, tidy and clean, but I will also advise on the placement of items and small pieces of furniture if I feel it will improve the photos and give the best impression of your property.

I’ll then choose the perfect spots for the shots, set up the lighting and begin the shoot.

Once we’re set up, I’ll start shooting pictures of the rental, including the outside, bedrooms, bathrooms, and any other special features or amenities you would like to include. I’ll then take the ‘lifestyle’ shots – those more arty detail shots of architectural features, bottles of wine, etc  all taken with a high depth of field, which add a bit of personality and glamour to your Airbnb listings. Finally, I’ll film any additional materials you’ve requested, such videos. A standard shoot should take around 1 hour in total.

After I take the photos, I will go over the raw pictures and/or videos with you to make sure you are satisfied. Following that, we can discuss taking any further pictures you request.

Over the next 24 hours I’ll edit and retouch the pictures to improve their quality and appearance. To achieve the best possible results, this can include adjusting the photographs’ lighting, colour, and even composition by cropping for example. If  you would like gorgeous blue skies in your photos but we are shooting on a cloudy day, we can also provide an additional ‘blue sky’ service, in addition to blemish or mark removal.

After editing, I will send the pictures to you in the format you have requested. Usually, this consists both of very high-resolution print-ready shots and reduced-resolution images for your website, social media accounts, and other online marketing materials. You’ll have plenty of photos to choose from, but most people usually upload 2-3 photos per room plus the lifestyle shots. 

Unless you requested extra services, I will usually provide the finished images to you in 48 hours.

Our clients say

Oliver was very flexible in working around my property, whilst I was frantically staging two rooms ahead. He gave some great ideas on angles for shots, the photography was beautiful, and I received the edited images quickly and efficiently so I could go to market directly
