With traditional property photography you are trying to show a home and also the space in it, a sort of blank canvas for buyers to see themselves living there.
For Airbnb photography and property rental photography you are selling a temporary home for clients and the feelings they get when they look at the images should make them want to pick up their toothbrush, some clothes, grab the car keys and just go there immediately.
So it's very important the house is presented well, it's bright, furnished and seems warm and cosy.
I will use the two images below again as an example.
Look at both of them and then ask yourself which one would you like to stay in?
This will increase the amount of lettings you get via Airbnb in a year and also give you the confidence to rent your property for the price it deserves.
I know which one immediately appeals to me and where I would rather stay.
The first photograph is sharp and you can see the room but it appears cold and dark which is hardly the homely feel you want to get across. Would you like to wake up in that bed in the morning?
The second image due to the way it was captured is brighter, warmer and shows more of the room giving it the home away from home feel.
You have to remember that when you are thinking about Airbnb photography that a photograph speaks to people of all languages and when dealing with tourists this is vitally important.
If you are looking on Airbnb and thinking of renting a property in another country would you take the time to read about it in another language if it immediately felt cold and dark?
So it really is important to get your Airbnb photography right for your rental property.

For added value I can also help you set up a website for your rental property if you want to rent it directly to your clients as well as on Airbnb.
This can help to set your property apart from other properties for rent in the area and give your clients more information and you can put pages up on local activities as well as day trips in the area all adding value to your rental property.
