Holiday rentals – Photo of the week – Atmospheric shots
Not one but two photos this week and we love them both. We picked these two beauties because they show what can be achieved on a tight budget with a little planning and experimentation.
These images are from a fantastic portfolio by our friend +Antonio Bortolotti and you can see more of his property and photographic style at http://bit.ly/1l54BOv
Make yourself a coffee, click the link and enjoy the photos, then plan on improving your own rental portfolio.

 Here's a great idea. Rummage around at yard sales, flea markets or boot sales and get yourself a collection (it doesn't have to be tea pots), plant your containers and photograph – Repeat

HomeAway Extends Pay-Per-Booking Model to VRBO.com
No great surprise here as this was a dot on the card.
If you are an owner you better prepare for plenty more of this across the board. Commission based models are more profitable for listings companies and money makes the world go around. So strap yourselves in, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
