Our Homes + Your Camera

We have beautiful vacation rentals all over the country, and we’re actively looking for freelance photographers to help us capture our properties. Become an Evolve Photographer and your work will be used as the cornerstone of our listings.

How It Works

We partner with professional real estate photographers like you (and pay you directly) to provide high-definition photographs for our property listings. Here’s how it works:

You own a DSLR camera capable of auto bracketing at least five frames, a tripod, ultra-wide angle lenses

You pass our screening process and complete a test shoot (real estate photography required)

We work with you and the owner to coordinate photoshoot details


You capture interior and exterior HDR photos that follow our guidelines 

You provide unedited images and a brief review of each home based on our property standards

Frequently Asked Questions

Evolve is reimagining the vacation rental experience with our modern approach to hospitality and property management. We help guests rest easy with vetted homes, bookings that give back, and all the support they need for a great stay. We also support owners in reaching their financial goals, partnering with them to start, manage, and grow their vacation rental business — all for an industry-low fee.

Evolve’s approach to vacation rental management is unlike anything the industry has seen before. Here’s what owners can expect from us:

  • World-class marketing. Evolve creates a professional and ready-to-book listing for every property and promotes it on all the top booking sites. We even send a professional photographer to shoot the property for free!
  • Full-time guest support. Our in-house team responds quickly to every guest inquiry, answers questions about the property, and confirms bookings seven days a week — even on nights and weekends.
  • Vetted local partners. Our network of reliable, on-the-ground partners help owners with check-ins, housekeeping, restocking supplies, and more.
  • Peace of mind. Every booking is protected by our industry-leading program that offers up to $3,000 in damage protection and $1,000,000 in liability coverage.
  • Unrivaled value. There’s no cost to join, no long-term commitment and no hidden fees — just our incredibly low 10% management fee backed by our Risk-Free Guarantee

All photographers who work with Evolve must have real estate photography experience. They must also have the following equipment:

  • DSLR camera with auto bracketing capabilities
  • Tripod
  • Ultra-wide angle lens
    • 14-16mm on a full frame camera
    • 10-11mm on a crop sensor camera

As part of the application process, you’ll complete a test photoshoot in accordance with our photoshoot standards.

There’s no cost to become an Evolve photographer, and we pay you directly for your services. Once you submit photos from a shoot, our team will verify you’ve met our photoshoot standards and that you’ve included all the contracted shots. From there, your payment will be approved!
