Traveling Solo? Hire A Photographer To Capture Your Trip

Have you ever wondered how solo travelers are able to capture Insta-worthy photos? We have, too. Many seasoned solo travelers have mastered setting up their own equipment to get the perfect snap or have learned how to approach the right strangers, so they don’t end up with a picture that doesn’t capture their best angles.

 

If you aren’t a seasoned solo, photo-taking traveler, we have a solution: hire a personal photographer.  

 

We promise it’s not as self-indulgent or expensive as it sounds thanks to Airbnb Experiences. With the options the site provides, you can book services from locals around the world. Finding a photographer this way will not only get the photos you love, but you will also support the local economy.

There are a few things that make booking a photographer through Airbnb worthwhile: you can check out reviews, book based on your schedule, and most experiences are budget friendly ranging between $49- $115 for up to three hours for shooting.

 

There is one more perk— you’ll get a tour of the city you’re exploring from a local while you get images you’ll be able to look back on for a lifetime. Many photo experiences also offer transportation around the city and even a post-shoot cocktail and meal. 


 

Whether you’re headed to Bali,  Morocco, or staying stateside with a trip to New York City, you can find a photographer cement your journey in time with beautiful photos and learn more about your home away from home too.
