Your Airbnb host profile photo is a great way for others to learn more about the Airbnb accommodation or the experience you offer before they book your offer and then leave a review.

A great and clear Airbnb profile image helps your potential guests or hosts feel that you’re a good person, reliable and authentic. A well-curated profile image is the first step to ensuring you will get a winning customer review.

Whether you’re a host or a guest, the more complete your profile is, the more Airbnb reservations you’re likely to get booked.

Airbnb requires all hosts to have a profile photo, and they require all guests to upload a profile photo before making their first reservation. A great profile includes at least one profile photo. To view someone’s profile, just click their profile photo.

High-quality photos that are at least 1024 x 683 pixels are a great way to showcase your space and help set guests’ expectations.

Our free tips when taking your photos for your Airbnb listing:

  • Few photos are better than no photos. Start with some of your photos when you create a new listing – mobile phone photos are a good start.
  • Landscape format. Horizontal photos will showcase your space very well.
  • Set the scene. Clean up, remove clutter and pretend you’re preparing for your first guest.
  • Use daylight. Open the curtains or blinds and turn on the lights to brighten your space.
  • Showcase your unique amenities. Guests enjoy and appreciate staying in spaces with character. Consider including exterior photos too.

In some cities, Airbnb offers professional photography services hosts. If Airbnb’s free photography service is available, you’ll see your listings appear at the bottom of the page. Select the listings you’d like to have photographed and click “Check availability”.

After your shoot, your images will go through an editing process and will go live in approximately four weeks.

If the free professional Airbnb photography service is available in your area, you:

  • Must have a verified telephone number and email address on your Airbnb profile.
  • Can apply for photography for up to four individual listings. To apply for photography for 5 or more listings, you need to have at least an equivalent number of accepted reservations. For example, if you have 10 accepted reservations, you can apply for photography of up to 10 individual listings.
  • Can only have a listing photographed once.

If the free Airbnb professional photography service isn’t available in your area, or while you wait for this service, we recommend uploading your images. Photos from a good mobile phone can be good enough to offer your guests a good sense of what to expect from your Airbnb space.

Once you have a photo shoot scheduled, here are some tips to help you prepare:

  • Open any blinds or curtains to allow natural light in
  • Organize or put away objects that clutter your space, and remove any valuables or food you don’t want to be photographed
  • Think about how you might want to highlight amenities your guest will enjoy i.e. bath, pool, spa, sports facilities: tennis court, etc.
  • Make your bed with nice, clean sheets
  • Tidy up surfaces and bedside tables
  • Open the shower curtain, clean the bathroom mirror, and close the toilet lid
  • Fold your guest towels

Your Airbnb profile image/photo sets the environment for customers to love your listing and book your page or experience. A professionally shot profile image of yourself will tell the potential guest the type of person you are.

Ensure your look reflects the type of experience the person will have.

For example, if you are offering a private yurt in a secret forest, it makes sense your profile photo showcases a person who loves living in the forest.

The same thinking will apply if you are offering a loft in Manhattan, New York City, your profile image can reflect a person who loves all the joys of city living. You could probably say the latter should be a more sophisticated profile image.
