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 $155 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 $94 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $84 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 30% more than the year prior). Southwest Berkeley is the most popular neighborhood within Berkeley for Photo Shoots with photo studios and gardens topping the list of popular options.

19700+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Berkeley, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 665 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
