We’ll share some of our favorites ahead.
Regardless of whether you’re an amateur photographer, an Instagram influencer, an absolute pro, or just looking to snap some cool pics, you’ll find an array of opportunities for impressive photography. We’ve selected our top places to find photoshoot inspiration in Atlanta. Let’s get to it!
1. A museum gallery + event space + production home
What better to inspire art and creativity than other works of art? Situated in historic Jefferson Park, just a short drive from downtown, Halls of Art at Carnegie Hall regularly rotates art exhibits that will make a stunning backdrop for your next photoshoot. That’s why we’d consider this space, with its outstanding large-scale works of art, spiraling book reading nook, and floral grass wall to be one of the top indoor locations for photoshoot inspiration in Atlanta.
Another bonus that comes with using Peerspace to book unique spaces? You get to read genuine reviews from past renters before booking! Here’s one loving example for Atlanta’s Carnegie Hall: “Wow! The ART is amazing! The pictures don’t do this place justice! Beautiful space and endless photo opportunities! The host was welcoming and friendly. Had an amazing video shoot here!”
2. A natural light loft in Oakland
Looking to do something like a cozy Instagram shoot, with cozy vibes and tons of natural light (but even better)? Then this Petit Atelier in Oakland is the place. It’s a 600-square-foot loft in the Mattress Factory lofts that boasts 20′ ceilings, hardwood floors, white and exposed brick walls, and huge windows. With a combination of industrial loft features (like exposed ductwork and piping) and warm, inviting furnishings and decor, it’s a dreamy spot for photoshoot inspiration in Atlanta. You can even request rooftop access for city skyline views!
“LOVED THIS SPACE,” shares a photographer in their Peerspace review, “photos were accurate and everything went swell! The lighting was great.”
3. A sleek, minimalist photo studio with natural light
You might not immediately consider a minimalist setting as a source of creative inspiration. But in fact, a space that manages to incorporate interesting touches and details while maintaining an overall minimalist feel can be one of the most inspiring, because it provides a huge amount of room for interpretation and adding the details you’re focused on.
For instance, it’d make an ideal backdrop for fashion photography that incorporates very elaborate costuming, as the simplicity of the background and its modern interior styling would juxtapose nicely with the intricacy of the subject. Just start brainstorming — the sky’s the limit!

It’ll provide you with endless photoshoot inspiration in Atlanta.
5. A photography concept studio in Kirkwood
As the host of this one-of-a-kind Kirkwood studio explains, “This studio is a concept studio made by creatives for creatives.” It’s a 1,400-square-foot minimalist space with neutral colors, providing different areas with props and furniture. The the high ceilings also reveal several skylights, making it easy for you to enjoy natural light during the daytime. The studio also provides you with strobe lights, modifiers, paper backdrops, and more, all included with the hourly price.
