How Does it Work?

How much does it cost?

Photo shoots are free for eligible hosts. Please note that photography is not guaranteed - it depends on whether a photographer nearby is available at the time of your request.

What’s next?

First, ensure your phone number, email address and the address of your listing are up to date. Then check availability of photographers for eligible listings below.

How long does it take?

If you are matched with a photographer, you will schedule the shoot directly with them. The review process can then take up to a month. While you wait for your professional photos, you can still list your space with your own photos.

Log in to request free professional photography, or list your space and become a host.
