Contract Listing Photographer

Calling interior photographers worldwide! Airbnb is looking for experienced photographers to shoot listings in select regions around the world. 

Airbnb loves photography that captures each home in a natural way. We prefer ambient light over flash, no filters over HDR and realistic angles over fish-eye. Those with a background in interior, architectural and neighborhood photography are strongly preferred, but will consider applicants whose portfolio showcases fluency in composition, lighting and technique.

Photographers are retained as independent, ongoing contractors. Assignments cover a localized region and generally involve travel within 30 miles of a photographer's location. As a freelance photographer, you are free to take on assignments from non-competing clients. An ability to communicate (written and verbal) in English is required for corresponding with our team of editors.
We hire as needed based by location. If your portfolio meets our standards, we will keep your application on file for future openings in your region. Thank you for your patience!
