How to take great photos of your B&B

You’ve worked hard to create a top B&B and finally have a property you can really be proud of, so there’s no sense in letting it all go to waste with a bad photo.

So many potentially lovely properties let themselves down with bad composition, bad angles, bad lighting or just a bad choice of subject matter.

First impressions are everything, so is here to help you really capture a booker’s attention before they move on to the next property.

Inside your B&B

Ben Craig House, Edinburgh, Scotland at BedandBreakfastworld.comEven large rooms can appear cramped in photos; try standing in the doorway or taking pictures from outside through an open window to show the full size of the room.

Select your angle carefully; taking photos from a low angle or diagonally from corner to corner helps to make the room seem larger.

Relais Cavalcanti, Florence, Italy at BedandBreakfastworld.comWhen composing your picture, make sure that everything in the frame is there on purpose; move any trailing wires, pick up that odd shoe, and, if you’re taking pictures of the bathroom, make sure the lid of the toilet is down! If there’s a fireplace in the shot, light a fire; if there’s a window, make sure that the view outside is appealing (and vice versa for exterior photos).

Guests want a room which is light, airy and spacious, so always take your interior photos during the day. Avoid using the flash if possible as it can make a picture look cold. Instead, open the curtains and bring in as many extra lights as you have lying around. A night-time shot might work for a cosy-looking lounge, but the lighting will be harder to get right, and a tripod is essential.
