The professional photography program is something that Hipcamp offers to Hosts in select regions! This program will send professional photographers to your property for a night and they will take photos that will be featured on your listing page.
If you're located in a region where this program is offered, you can opt-in through your dashboard. Simply log into your account, click "Host Dashboard" and scroll down until you see this:
Please note that if you do not see the above image on your dashboard, you're likely not in a region where this program is offered.
If you have any trouble opting in, feel free to email our Support Team and they will look into whether the program is available for your area and opt-in on your behalf.
Once opted in, all you have to do is keep an eye out for any requests that come through from a Hipcamp Photographer (they should introduce themselves as such.) They will book for 1 night and they will be asked to shoot 10-15 beautiful photos of your property.
Once the trip is over, they will upload the photos and write a review. We will then organize the photos and apply a verification badge to your listing.
If you've opted into the program and are waiting for a Hipcamp Photographer to contact you, please be patient! We have a limited number of photographers and they try to get to as many properties as possible. While we can't give you an exact date of when they will book with you, if you've opted in, your time will come! While you wait, consider taking some of your own pictures! Here are some great tips to get you started.
