What you'll do

Listing photos are the most effective way to sell your space. Contrary to what many believe, you don’t need to hire a professional photographer. With your smartphone and my easy-to-follow guidance, you’ll gain the tools and confidence to take your own impressive pictures and give a boost to your listing.

We'll begin with basic photography concepts and tips. I’ll help you make the best use of your phone and ask you to pick one room of your house to photograph. Over the next 20-30 minutes, each person in the group will take a couple of shots of a room in their space.

I'll then provide blind feedback on each picture. Don't worry—we’re not here to shame anyone. Our goal is to help you understand what's a good photo and what can be improved to make it more attractive to potential guests.

Meet your Host, Gian

Host on Airbnb since 2012

  • Identity verified
I've been a host since 2012 and I started photographing Airbnbs back in 2014 when I began managing Airbnb apartments in Paris, France. I was already a photography aficionado at the time, so I naturally became passionate about interior and architectural photography. If you would like to see some of my work, please contact me via a private message and I will send you a link to my online portfolio.

Gian’s course was very helpful in understanding the importance of a balanced composition for Airbnb photos. The hands-on piece of the presentation allowed us to utilize his direction immediately. Would recommend this for all Airbnb hosts!

Gian did a great job of sharing his photography expertise and experiences shooting other Airbnb homes. He had many tips to help rentals show well online via photos. Many of the tips were new to me and all made use of our cell phone camera, which makes everything so easy. I'll be instituting many of his tips for all of my future photography -- rental photos to family photos.
