Airbnb photos, Rosebery Crescent, Edinburgh New Town.

Good quality photography is the best way to make your Airbnb stand out from the competition. Potential guests will be more likely to click on your listing, resulting in increased bookings. This is especially important in Edinburgh due to the huge quantity and variety of accommodation for visitors to choose from.

As you can see from the photos this is a beautiful property: a classic New Town tenement with big rooms, high ceilings, lots of space and light. It has all the best original period features, but decorated in a welcoming and modern style. Situated literally two minutes walk from Haymarket station, it couldn’t be more convenient for guests arriving by plane or train. Sam (the host / owner) also has great feedback on AirBnB, but despite this he still wasn’t getting as many bookings as he could be.

We took a series of photos to show the flat looking its best, highlighting the personality of the property with details of interior decoration and original artwork. The living room is centred around the wood burning stove rather than the TV, and colours from the antique glass in the front door have been continued through textiles and prints around the interior. Despite being so central the property feels quiet and peaceful, so I allowed the cold outdoor light wash through in contrast with the warm interior mood.

In addition to interior photos I included two cityscapes of Edinburgh to make the listing more personal. Competitors generally use random images from Pinterest etc rather than posting pictures by the property photographer. These photos were selected to match the colour scheme of the property, shot with matching lenses and processed in a similar way. It’s difficult to portray how close the flat is to the railway station – round the corner and over the street makes a very wide panorama – so I took a quick screen grab from Google maps too.

Would you like to maximise revenue from your buy to let properties? I can provide you high quality images with a quick turnaround time. This flat was actually the first property I shot for an Airbnb listing, please have a quick look at my more recent photos if you are interested.
