There’s something about Houston that makes it an exciting place to live and work — or visit from out of town. Whether you’re looking to take some snaps around your hometown, or it’s your first time in the city, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the amount of stunning photoshoot locations throughout the metropolis. From murals galore to a townhouse with a rooftop terrace, here are the top fashion photoshoot ideas in Houston that will inspire you.
1. An industrial-chic artistic studio with exposed brick in downtown Houston
This space just might check off all of your photoshoot location needs. First of all, we’ve got to highlight the versatility of the 1,800-square-foot venue with high ceilings and lots of white space. The studio also comes with boxed hedge backdrops, a kitchen, and bathroom. Plus, the six-foot tables available are great for setting up products or food dishes.
You can see a full list of amenities and features on each Peerspace listing, as well as directly contact the host for any questions that may arise. Rental rates are per hour, and many venues have a minimum amount of time required to rent.
2. An H-Town bungalow with a skyline backdrop
The city skyline is one of our favorite fashion photoshoot ideas in Houston. Of course, there are several places to get the best H-Town view. Renting a house or apartment is a great option for those who want plenty of time and privacy. This bungalow comes with a large patio that overlooks the towering skyline. Plus, it has a spacious living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Pose at night for city lights or at golden hour for an orange glow on your subject. You can also get that magic shot at Eleanor Tinsley Park or the Rosemont Pedestrian Bridge — but you’ll have to share the space with other locals and tourists looking for the perfect downtown setting.
3. A simply elegant studio with luxurious furniture
Sometimes you just need to get a few photos in a living room or bedroom, but don’t want to rent an entire house. This studio in Shady Acres comes with two different rooms — a white bedroom and a gray lounge room. Show off your new look by photographing yourself in multiple outfits. The space does come with a dressing room and restrooms, too! If you’re still not sure, check out this review from someone who’s recently rented the space:
This space is so great. I flew in from Charlotte for my shoot, and Claudia has been so great to work with since day one. Great space and I would love to shoot here again during my next Houston trip.
4. A spacious photo and video studio in Northline
If you need a cyclorama wall for your fashion photoshoot, this studio in Northline has got you covered. Rent the space for a half day, full day, or as many hours as you need it. The studio comes with seamless paper rolls to use for a background, sandbags, a green screen, wardrobe rack, restrooms, a dressing room, and lighting equipment. Check out what a recent renter had to say about the space:
Best experience ever! Shot a music video at this location and couldn’t have asked for a more friendlier host. Owen was very kind accommodating. I’d give them six stars if I could and definitely plan on going back!
5. A townhouse with a rooftop terrace in Montrose
A commercial for a toy company, music video for a local Houston rapper, and numerous photoshoots for portfolio headshots are just a few of the ways this space has been used. Some of the best fashion photoshoot ideas in Houston come with a rooftop terrace — and this townhouse has one with unreal views of downtown Houston! You can also show off your fun side in the game room, or play chef for a day in the island kitchen with Miele appliances.
6. A colorful mural (or five)
Murals are Instagram gold — and Houston has some of the best murals to use for fashion photoshoots. Start at the Biscuit Paint Wall in Montrose, and take your own mural tour through the city. Next on our favorites list is the Love Wall Houston on the Houston Graffiti Building and the large rainbow pride wall on the Pavement Houston Clothing shop.
7. A two-acre secluded ranch with a pool
This Texas-sized house may be a surprising fashion photoshoot idea in Houston. However, the open space and charming interior make for so many choices when taking photos. Plus, the lighting is great with lots of windows throughout the ranch home. The 4,500-square-foot house has a large pool and hot tub set against a lush garden, as well as a modern kitchen and photogenic barn.
8. A park filled with photogenic mosaic art
New intricate mosaics are added each week to Houston’s Smither Park. Stand under a large mosaic dome and see how the light reflects off the disco ball onto the art. Or, sit on a throne among mosaic tigers and a monkey on your shoulder. Remember to credit each artist(s) when publishing the photos, it’s hard work making these incredible mosaics!
9. A creative cafe space in Southwest Houston
Art can also be found indoors at a variety of Peerspace venues. This cafe is covered in whimsical murals that would make beautiful backgrounds for a photo session. Plus, you’ll be supporting a local business when you post the photos on your feed!
10. A vibrant neon-themed patio in Hyde Park
Can you tell colorful restaurants are one of our top fashion photoshoot ideas in Houston? This one has a huge neon-themed patio that shows off the spunk of the city while still being completely unique. Stop by for brunch, lunch, or dinner for photos on the patio. Or, have the entire patio exclusive for friends and family by renting it on Peerspace.
No matter where you choose to do your photoshoot, the Peerspace Concierge service can help with gear rental, catering, or nearly anything else you may need!
