Renting by the hour as an alternative to lodging
Lots of people rent out their homes via platforms like Airbnb for overnight stays. However, this typically means you have to host guests for extended periods (at least one overnight) in your home with you, or else you have to vacate your home to allow guests to stay there. This may not be convenient or even possible for you.
This is why the alternative to rent your home for photoshoots might be more appealing. You can rent your home for a photoshoot for just several hours, making potentially several hundred dollars in the process. All without having to allow people to stay there for more than 24 hours.
