photo shoot with dogs

We're looking to do a photo shoot at your location. Dates are flexible but ideally the week of the 23rd! We would have 10-12 guests max but they will most likely come in waves. Also might want to use one of your dogs for a shot or two! Can we put a soft hold on the 24th until I confirm the cast?

concept shoot with a piano prop

We're trying to go for a concept shoot from rococo feel to modern feel so this is a great spot! Just so I know the rates. How much would it be to use the piano prop and the other props in the photos? Also I see there is a rooftop, how much extra is access to the rooftop?

digital lifestyle series

I am executive producing and hosting an upcoming digital lifestyle series. I am looking for a location to shoot in over the next few months and I think your space could be a great fit. Love the exposed brick and decor! I would be interested in using the entire apartment. A few questions: Has the space had any major changes since the photos were taken? Are you near a subway or loud street noise? Is it possible to view the space in person?

Having a Photo Shoot in Berkeley

Berkeley is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 20+ spaces available for rent in neighborhoods across the city, you can find just the space you imagined at your budget.

Since planning Photo Shoots is different in every city, here are a few things to keep in mind as you go:

Renting photo shoot locations in Berkeley will cost you just about $164 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 22 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $86 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $154 an hour. Photo Shoot events here are a bit shorter than average and tend to start around 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. Most last for 4 hours 45 minutes, and are generally a bit larger than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 20+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 40% more than the year prior). Southwest Berkeley is the most popular neighborhood within Berkeley for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

16300+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Berkeley, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 529 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
