Living rooms

Living room is the heart of any property. Regardless of the size of it, or how many rooms you have, from studios (it will be an “area” rather than a room), to 4, 5 or even more bedroom properties, the living room is the one that has the biggest impression over people.

Along with all professional property photography settings such as lighting, angle and focal length, there are some significant criteria that I pay attention to as a property photographer, while capturing the essence of the living room. 

Showcasing the room’s focal points, such as a fireplace or a large window, can draw attention and add depth to the image. To gather the focus on the features of the area, decluttering is essential to create a clean and inviting space. You need to remove any distracting objects that may detract from the room’s appeal before the photo shoot.

Staging furniture thoughtfully can help create a sense of balance and flow within the room. This will allow viewers to envision themselves relaxing in the space. I usually move furniture around slightly for each frame I capture to make sure that the whole vibe of the room is presented.


Main features of a kitchen are the cupboards, countertops and appliances. These emphasize the features and the aesthetics of a property. When photographing kitchens for different purposes such as holiday lettings, sales, and long-term lettings, specific criteria need to be considered to meet the respective needs of each market.

For holiday lettings, you need to create an inviting and visually appealing space that entices potential renters by showcasing amenities like modern appliances and ample counter space. Using elements like fresh fruits, neatly arranged dining settings and some casual decorative items will enhance the appeal.

Showing what makes your Airbnb home special is essential for the holiday renters.

When taking sales photos, focus on highlighting the kitchen’s standout features and functionality. Potential buyers want to see quality materials and finishes. Make sure to showcase the stainless steel appliances and granite countertops – this conveys durability and luxury. It’s also crucial to demonstrate how the kitchen integrates with the home’s overall layout. This flow helps viewers envision themselves in the space. Finally, keep styling minimal. A clean, uncluttered look gives viewers the flexibility to imagine their own belongings in the kitchen.

Potential buyers would like to see the connections between different areas and what your kitchen can offer to them.

When photographing a rental property, whether it’s furnished or unfurnished affects what to highlight. The photos should fall somewhere between vacation rental and home sale styles. Prospective tenants focus most on the kitchen’s livability and functionality. Show how the kitchen integrates with other living areas by capturing different angles. But don’t overlook showcasing practical details that make the kitchen feel like a comfortable, everyday space.

Different angles of your kitchen helps the prospective tenants to visualise the space better.

Capturing the details and vibe of your letting will attract viewers


Bedrooms are often the smallest rooms in a home. When photographing them, I capture different angles to show the full layout. I also take close-up shots to highlight details like textures and finishes. This comprehensive approach gives viewers a complete sense of the bedroom’s compact size yet charming feel. However, I carefully plan each angle, considering perspective. This ensures I can reflect the room’s functionality and character within its cozy footprint.

There are many different angles I capture in a bedroom for property photography.

Your potential buyers, tenant or renters should feel the warmth of the bedroom. You need to show them that it’s a welcoming place for them to relax at the end of the day. There are lots of details you can showcase to the viewers to boost their imagination and feel the warmth of the property. Tidy and decluttered staging is the key to have attractive images. This also makes the work of the property photographer more efficient.

Even though natural colours are the best choice for beddings, you can create a soft colour scheme. But adding a bright accent pillow or throw blanket for an extra pop of colour will enhance the attractiveness. I balance the frames with these accent colours and items, putting the bed in the focus of the image.

With all the shiny and reflective surfaces, adding the size as a constrain, bathrooms are the most challenging areas to capture for impressive property photography. Key features come to the focus in this area. Bathtub, shower and vanity are essential to highlight the design and functionality. I sometimes incorporate mirrors to showcase a larger portion of the space.

Simplicity brings elegance to your property and I capture the vibe with my expertise.

Staging with fresh towels, decorative accents, and perhaps a potted plant can add warmth and personality to the space. Especially if you’re renting an Airbnb home, showcase that you provide the essentials to your guests by professional property photography. It’s always the small details that make the big difference.

Stairs are the connection between the spaces in a property. Emphasizing their design and material conveys the character of the staircase and compliment the overall beauty of its surrounding. Thera are many criteria I have to make sure that I’m framing the best of a stair.

There’s no one certain way of capturing the stairs. It all depends on the nature and surroundings of the area. Sometimes having a wide angle works best and sometimes taking a step back, putting the stairs in the centre of the frame. As an expert property photographer, I make quick and effective decisions while planning the settings as a result of my years of experience.


If you have a garden, or a balcony, or a small front porch, that will be captured! People love outdoor spaces and seeing them on your listing brings the hype in. I focus on the seating areas, landscape arrangement, flowers, decorative elements. Meanwhile, I prevent strong shadows and smoothen the direct sunlight’s effects.
