How To Take The Best Photos of Your Listings

Want to take better photos and get more rentals?

Now we're not saying you need to strike a Victoria Beckham pose to get more rentals, but here are our top tips to help you represent your listings better.

  • Grab a tripod or a friend and shoot yourself wearing the item - this will help lenders understand shape and fit better
  • Find a bright space and snap it in front of a plain background.
  • Artificial lighting could give your items a different shade, so natural light is best!
  • Try to avoid hanger shots as they don't make your items look like their best selves!
  • Keep things interesting and get creative!
  • Try to take a few different pictures from different angles, to really showcase the item in question
  • Don't forget the detail shot, get up close and snap a picture of the special feature
  • Avoid stock photos as these are usually taken from another website without permission and create your own content instead!
  • Try to get the full item into your frame so that Rotators can instantly see what the item looks like!
  • Don't use any heavy filter on your photos or it will be hard to tell what colour they are
  • If possible avoid using group pictures as this leaves potential renters guessing which dress you are renting out, try single ones instead.
  • If you are doing a mirror selfie, make sure you have great natural lighting and you can see the full dress / item
