2.04 Photo and Video shoots

Updated 2 years ago by Jocelyn Panganiban

What are considered to be Photo and Video Shoots?  

Sometimes, we get guests who are artists, models, documentarists, vloggers, endorsers, producers, directors, photographers, production teams conducting a VTR or TV/movie shoot, couples doing a prenuptial coverage and even students who are making a documentary for school projects. 

If they use the property with any form of photo and video capturing device for purposes of their profession and/or school project, then these are considered photo and video shoots.

We don’t allow this in some of the properties because our insurance doesn't cover damages that occur during a photo or video shoot. 

In other properties we will allow Photo and Video Shoots so long as a few requirements are met, use this article to understand how to communicate with potential guests and to evaluate whether or not the shoot/reservation is possible.

Thanks for inquiring with us. We do allow photoshoots but have different pricing and rules for that situation. 
The cost is $1000 per day at this property with a $1000 security deposit.
Please note: Regular check-in and checkout times apply, so if you need to start the shoot earlier than 3 pm, we will need you to book the previous night as well. Our offloading and unloading times are also strictly to the hours of 10am to 4pm to avoid disrupting the community during normal commute hours. We also have quiet hours from 8pm to 8am that are strictly enforced.

Please provide the following to evaluate your request:

A copy of your insurance policy for the photoshoot.

After the guest has responded compare their response to the requirements below.

If their response violates any of our requirements remind them of our rules and ask them if they can adhere to them. If they cannot then deny their request.

If they agree to our rules then share the pricing information with them.

You will need to send a guest a special offer through the Airbnb profile, so that this price works.

Requirements of guests:

  1. Copy of insurance policy
  2. A maximum of 10 people are allowed in the property
  3. The guest must send a list of the names of everyone attending
  4. No adult film or pornographic shoots are permitted.
  5. The guests must adhere to regular check-in and checkout times. If they need to start shooting in the morning, they should book the previous night.
  6. Shoots may begin no earlier than 10 am and end by 8 pm
  7. Offloading and unloading times cannot occur during normal commute times to avoid community disruption. Offloading and unloading equipment is strictly limited to 10am to 4pm.

Pricing

  1. All properties where photo shoots are permitted are $500/day for photo shoots, with the exception of 8 Erie, which is $1,000/day.
  2. A $1000 security deposit is required for all properties.
  3. We cannot negotiate for less than these prices
Our insurance policy doesn't really cover photoshoots unrelated to marketing our property. Therefore we must be very careful when allowing photoshoots and verify their policy before allowing their reservation.
