Sébastien Grosjean is the founder and CEO of BookingSync.com a vacation rental software and channel management company.
In a recent video blog, Sébastien provides his introduction to vacation rental photography and three tips managers can use to take better photos.
He calls photography the single most important thing you can do.
PROPER LIGHTING. He reminds viewers to shoot photos at the best time of the day. Afternoons often have odd lighting so shoot exteriors early in the day. For interior photography he reminds that all lights should be turned on and curtains opened to show the outdoors.
FUNCTIONAL PHOTOS. Guests want to discover what your home has to offer so provide pictures of every room and always from the best angle.
STAGING. Make the home appear just as it will be when guests rent. Be sure to remove amenities that may not be there when visitors arrive.
Thanks Sébastien, that is all good advice.
Although intended for the do-it-yourself photographer, we would like to recommend that BookingSync inform guests that professional photos, especially those in High Dynamic Range by a qualified and experienced photographer, can triple the results of even the best amateur photo.
It may only take an hour or two to shoot HDR's, but up to an hour per photo to process, color balance and correct stunning accurate photos that amateur methods can match.
HDR's, along with panoramas also shot in HDR, are the only way for guests to truly see before they buy and stay.
