One of the biggest benefits of finding a studio on Peerspace is the ability to rent by the hour, instead of by the day. You’re able to book time for only as long as you need to and with no long-term commitment, so you won’t have to worry about going way over budget with just the studio time.

Another key feature of booking on Peerspace is the ability to communicate directly with the local host before your booking. Coordinate scheduling, ask about any equipment that might be on-site, or get recommendations for in-house production teams!

You’ll always be in the driver’s seat and come to your booking day feeling confident every box has been checked.

Finding the right option for you

Peerspace caters to a wide variety of community members and offers a plethora of venue types. To find exactly what you’re looking for, follow these easy steps:

What activity are you planning?

Each listing on Peerspace pertains to certain types of activities. Therefore, it’s important to start your search off right to only find the most relevant ones.

For most situations where you’ll want a camera, you can enter “photoshoot” and the area you’re looking to book in. Then, type in “camera” to the keyword bar to retrieve only listings that have one on-site.

Determine your hourly budget

As we mentioned before, you’ll be booking by the hour, not the day. So, figure out how much you can pay hourly to find only options that are within your budget.

How many people are coming?

Studios come in all shapes and sizes, and each will have a maximum number of attendees allowed. Set the number of people who will be attending your production day to get the most fitting results.

When are you booking?

Bookings on Peerspace are on a first-come, first-served basis and each listing will have its own hours. By filtering for your target date, you’ll exclude any options that won’t work.

Normally, you’ll coordinate scheduling with the host, but with options available for instant booking, you can just pick a day and set it right away!

What equipment or amenities do you need?

Just like some spaces or studios will have cameras available, they’ll also typically have other equipment or amenities available with your rental. If there’s a specific screen or piece of lighting equipment you know you’ll need, type it into the keyword bar to get relevant results.

When you’ve gotten down to a list of only the most qualified candidates, it’s time to start looking through each one to come to a decision. Each listing will have high-quality images uploaded by the host, a detailed description of the space, a full list of amenities, and typically reviews from community members who have booked already.

With all of this at your disposal, we know you won’t have any trouble finding the perfect place for you!
