Prospective holidaymakers may look at hundreds of listings while looking for that perfect property. Great photography that catches the eye, can sell your listing time and time again. The photographs you take of your property are vital to a successful booking.
Before you pick up your phone or better, a digital camera to photograph your property, think of your listing as a magazine shoot. It needs to look its absolute best. Think of your photo shoot for Easy Holiday Rentals as if you were taking photos for the likes of Hello Magazine.
First of all, either hire a professional, have a steady hand or use a monopod. Photos should be high resolution images. If you are using a smartphone, set it to the High Dynamic Range (HDR) setting to capture greater detail.
Photos should also be taken in Landscape mode, and NOT portrait.
Look at other property websites and pick out the best photos that catch your eye, and try and emulate these.
