If you’re looking for indoor photoshoot locations in Vancouver, you’re sure to have plenty of luck in a city with so many fabulous features to offer. Many expert sources rank Vancouver as the city as one of the most livable in the world, as well as one of the best cities in North America. And that’s for good reasons. For starters, unlike much of the rest of Canada, it’s relatively warm. Vancouver also offers gorgeous natural views in the form of both mountains and ocean (that means beautiful beaches!!), which relatively few cities can claim, and its proximity to both makes it an ideal choice for those outdoorsy types.
We’ve gathered a list of 11 of our favorite indoor photoshoot locations in Vancouver, all of which are available to rent on Peerspace. Peerspace is the internet’s biggest marketplace for hourly rental of photo studios, event venues, and spaces of all kinds. So your options (both within Vancouver and elsewhere) are nearly boundless. Read on to gain some inspiration and perhaps even find the ideal location for your next photoshoot with relatively little effort!
1. An affordable green screen studio
This green screen studio in East Vancouver is affordable without sacrificing quality. It is a great fit for those looking for a simple studio with a green screen and not much more. This studio is ideal for small- to medium-sized productions of up to 15 people.
Plus, the hosts provide photo equipment including extra lights and light stands, sandbags, and so forth. They were recently outfitted with a high-tech lighting grid to ensure there are relatively few light stands and power cables cluttering the floor, meaning your photoshoot should go even more smoothly.
2. A unique ice cave installation room
Here’s a gorgeous and intriguing indoor photoshoot location in Vancouver: this ice cave installation room.

But don’t just take our word for it! When you rent venues through Peerspace, you can also read genuine reviews from past renters before you book.
