10 Groovy 70s Photoshoot Ideas

A 70s photoshoot theme has so much to offer! It was a time of contradictions — austerity and luxury, futurism and a disdain for modernism, tie-dye, and questionable carpet choices. Odds are, you don’t happen to have shag carpeting and other 70s-style decor in your home. So to make these 70s photoshoot ideas come to life, you’re going to need a funky pad all your own for a few hours.

Enter: Peerspace! As the largest online marketplace for hourly venue rentals (including many, many decade-themed abodes!) you can book a private space from a local creative who has the same incredible aesthetic as yourself. Grab your photographer or model, book one of these spaces for a few hours, and let the good times roll.

Whatever parts of the 70s you love, you can enjoy the best of it during your photoshoot! Here are our 10 groovy 70s photoshoot ideas to make your funky fresh pictures a reality.
