Maxwell Alexander, Creative Director, lead Photographer at the Alluvion Media, and a Superhost himself has been taking photos for over 15 years and specializes in the Hudson Valley/Catskills area. Recently, Maxwell was asked by an Airbnb host if it’s really necessary to hire a photographer to take pictures of their space on Airbnb or can they do it themselves. Here’s how Maxwell responded: I hear this question from people all the time when I’m out photographing properties and I usually answer with ‘yes and no’ because each situation is different...

What We Do
Alluvion Media helps you tell your story. Whether it's a real estate listing, commercial property, or a hospitality experience, we are committed to helping you create stunning images that showcase your work. Maxwell Alexander is your Hudson Valley photographer with more than fifteen years of experience in all genres of photography from fashion and headshots to commercial and architectural work. Marketing hospitality experiences requires a lot more than pictures of buildings and rooms, this is why we always recommend Airbnb hosts upgrade their photoshoots with twilight/dusk photography to reveal the property's ambiance during the dinner time (which is the number one priority for most Airbnb guests) and close-ups of home decor, to further reveal the emotional and cultural aspects of the experience.
The Value of Professional Airbnb Photos
Hiring professionals for certain jobs is always a great idea. One of those jobs is photography—it’s a valuable investment that can really add polish and quality to your listings, plus increase your revenue, especially if you’re doing it as a full-time or part-time business. Professional Airbnb photographer Maxwell Alexander has a great eye for light and composition, and he understands how to capture homes at their best. He takes time with each shoot (usually about two hours) to ensure he gets just what he needs. If you live in Westchester County, New York, we highly recommend him! (Maxwell also does other types of photography work, check out his Duncan Avenue Studios portfolio.)
Every listing, no matter how large or small, should be professional and polished. Startups are notorious for thinking they can get away with a handful of low-quality photos. Don’t fall into that trap. Today’s travelers want more than just a photo—they want quality images that capture each property’s unique style and highlight its most attractive features. As every business is different, so are their photography needs.
