Real estate photography for holiday accommodation

Aidan's Island

Aidan’s Island is a stunning guesthouse set in rural Islandeady, between Castlebar and Westport. The property has superb outdoor spaces, with a beautiful sun terrace, outdoor barbeque area and spectacular lake views. The property owner contacted The Commercial Photographer to commission real estate photography for its website and self-catering listings.

Luckily, the property owner came to us at the perfect time of year for real estate photography, showing the property at its very best.  Planning the time of year for your property photo shoot can really make a difference. Just look at the summer light streaming in the windows and the lush green of the Irish countryside outside!  It’s so important that your website imagery show guests the experience they can have at your property, and that’s just what these images show to future holiday makers.

Preparing your property for a photo shoot

The more planning you put into your property photography shoot, the better the results. Consider how you style bedrooms and living areas. Try to have that work done before your photographer arrives.

Also, clean everything thoroughly. You’d be amazed at how often rogue fingerprints appear on shiny surfaces and windows – and remember we’re always looking for a sunny day which shows up every speck of dust!

Outside, have the exterior clean and tidy. Consider freshening up any garden, terrace or flower pots.

Using high quality imagery to enhance your property listing

We worked with the owner here to find the unique features and selling points of Aidan’s Island and ensure all details were captured in their website and property listing imagery.


An important consideration for holiday rental and B&B owners is to have print-ready imagery to use for printed brochures, flyers and other printed material as well as a good image bank with details, landscapes and so much more for your social media content. We can help you identify the perfect images to showcase your property at its very best for your prospective clients.

So many of our property photography clients tell us their photo shoot helped them convert additional bookings. And for property sales, why not take control of your listing and ensure your house for sale has the best imagery possible? A well-presented and photographed property sells well, whether that’s a holiday let, a property rental or a house for sale.
