Hi all,

I just came across some previous questions forum users had about doing freelance work for the travel website Airbnb. We're currently recruiting shooters in virtually every country across the world to take on regular architectural/real estate shoots of our listings -- and I'd love to talk to any great person with that type of work in their portfolio. Our photography requests are not exactly micro or macrostock -- but the jobs are very quick, in bulk, pay by the shoot and are based on your own availability/schedule. Most of the photographers on our team are pros who take on work for us in-between bigger gigs, or when they know they'll have a few hours downtime.

For the doubters, here's a link to our job application on our website: newbielink:https://www.airbnb.com/photography/apply [nonactive]

However, for more of a personal touch,  I'd love to hear from you directly if you're interested in finding out more, or had any questions you'd like answered. Please either reply with contact info on this thread, or message me -- and I'll get back to you ASAP from my 'official' email.

(Wasn't sure what the best sub-forum to put this in was, so feel to move if necessary!)

" pay by the shoot "

... So how much?

A competitive rate, based on only 30 minutes of work (perhaps less), plus travel reimbursement. Here's a link to a listing with Verified Photos, so you have a better idea of what we're asking for: newbielink:https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/45168 [nonactive]

Quick snapshots, right.  Then, so how much is 'competitive'?

That probably sounds about right, but given the time to take the photos, edit them, drive there and back and upload, it sounds more like a 4 hour job and to cover expenses (indirect expenses like accounting, heat, internet, camera and direct expenses like gas) ... I'm afraid I wouldn't do it for less than $200.  For a part time person or a hobby photographer, $50 might be tempting enough though... or if your cost of living is very low.

Totally agree, Leaf.  The actual workflow is not discussed (editing, hauling gear, lighting, set up, etc) and 30 minutes is purely an understatement.  However, they do claim to pay travel, which I assume is a per mile rate..probably like 50 cents a mile.  The images I saw on their site are clearly not point and shoot, either.  This tells me that there is a lot more time involved than 30 minutes on the interior assignments.

So, what, you can make $40 to $50 every 6 months or so? Sporadically to me means not very often. From dictionary. com: sporadically: appearing or happening at irregular intervals in time; occasional.

Well the funny thing is that none of the images I have seen on their site (interior) can be done with point and shoot.  That means that lighting would have to be hauled, multiple exposure work would likely be a workflow, editing in PS to get that "look", submitting and waiting for the okay stamp.  So you make $50 bucks plus 50 miles of travel worth $.50 cents a mile for another $25 bucks (less the gas you already used) makes this venture peachy!

Apparently something was deleted. I dont just post that randomly.  ;D  There has been a rash of old threads being resurrected recently. Maybe it was a spammer or something whose post was deleted.

Is anyone actually shooting for Airbnb and finding it a well-paying gig? Or do they pay with vacation vouchers mostly? :-)
