Airbnb works with local photographers to capture the spirit of neighbourhoods all around the world. The photography on this page includes work by:
Originally trained as an architect, Odessa has shifted her passion to photography of all sorts. She specializes in family, children and newborn photography but enjoys pursuing architectural photography as well. She calls San Francisco home with her husband and daughter.
Michael Blumenfeld is a commercial photographer based in San Francisco. When not shooting, he loves rooting for the Giants, haunting used-book stores, and following his appetite around the city. He's inspired each day by the energy and diversity of the Bay Area. This project for Airbnb was a great opportunity to tread both the beaten and unbeaten paths of a city he feels privileged to call home.
