Airbnb’s Professional Photo Service

We want to provide a photo service that fits your needs. Our network of local photographers are trained to achieve Airbnb’s high quality standards and will do their best to create images that make your home stand out and attract guests.

Before the Photoshoot

It is important to clean and style your space before the photoshoot because these images will give guests an indication of what they can expect from a stay in your home. The photographer will be exclusively focused on capturing the perfect composition and lighting during the time they spend at your listing. Check out our guide below for more information on how to set up your listing and be best prepared for your photoshoot.

When does the payment take place?

You won’t be charged until the photos are live on your listing. The cost of your photoshoot will be subtracted from your next payout(s) until the remaining balance is paid in full. If you choose to cancel before the shoot, you won’t be charged.

Will the photographer help style?

The photographer’s role is to take the photos. They may assist in adjusting pillows or turning off lights. The house must be photo-ready when they arrive. This will ensure that the photographer has enough time allotted to capture all necessary photos.

Can I tell the photographer what I want them to capture?

We ask our photographers to capture 2-3 images of each room offered in the listing. If there are areas that you want to emphasize, let your photographer know in your messages.

How long will the photoshoot last?

A photoshoot lasts up to 1 hour. We ask that your house is photoshoot-ready by 8:00 AM the day of the scheduled appointment.

How long will this process take?

It can take anywhere between 1-3 weeks from the moment you request the service to the time your images are published to your listing. This is based on yours, and your photographers, availability.

Can cleaning take place during the photoshoot?

Please ensure all housekeeping, cleaning, and laundress services are scheduled and completed prior to the photoshoot in order to keep things running smoothly and on-time.

Can the photographer photograph one of my other listings?

Photographers will only photograph rooms offered in the listing you requested photos for. If you’d like to get pro photos on another listing, request photography for that listing here

How will I receive my images?

Once your images are approved, they are immediately published to your listing, where you can then change their order, delete, and/or add captions.
