Listing Photography Guide


Photos are an important part of creating a successful Listing on Nesterly. We’ve found that Listings with photos are 95% more likely get booked for a homeshare.

We put together this short guide to help you take professional level photographs in a matter of minutes with your own smartphone or tablet.

Tidy up your space. Check out our guide to cleaning out your extra room here.

Take pictures during the day. Shoot during the day and make sure to open blinds or curtains to let the natural light in.

Take pictures from the corner of the room. This will make your space look more spacious.

Shoot landscape photos. Always avoid shooting vertical photos.

Showcase what makes your home special. Take pictures of your favorite features in your home (e.g. reading nook, your photo-lined hallway, your lit fireplace etc.).
