photo shoot for independent singer

I'm an independent singer/songwriter and i’d like to have a photo shoot in your space this Sunday. However, I only need 1 hour. Would it be possible to book it from 1pm - 2pm? Please let me know. Your space is beautiful, and I would love to utilize it!

photo shoot for men's clothing

We're currently shooting our campaign and would love book your space for the photo shoot. Our last shoot was featured on Vogue. We'll be shooting our new mens collection on two models. As the venue already has its own great style, the shoot will be simple and non-invasive. Attendees would include our photographer, an assistant, the prop stylist, and then four members from our team.

seasonal lookbook photo shoot

I work at a women's wholesale fashion company and we do seasonal lookbook shoots for our ecommerce sites and attend trade shows. We were interested in this location for a photo shoot with a small crew of 6 people (our hair and makeup artist would leave at 1pm) with about 40 looks to shoot. Equipment would be light with the following: 1 clothing rack, 1 steamer, couple luggages of clothes and either using just natural light or 1 light/reflector. The time would be from 9am-5pm and we're mindful of not starting earlier or leaving the premises no later than the scheduled end time. Finally, I'd like to check with you how many parking spots would be available at your location. Since we are all coming from different locations, there could be anywhere from 3-5 cars depending on whether we're able to carpool and if the model would be arriving via uber or driving.

Having a Photo Shoot in Berkeley

Berkeley is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 30+ 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 $186 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 $97 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $144 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 5 hours, and are generally a bit smaller than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 30+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 88% 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.

13500+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Berkeley, with the average host boasting 4.8 stars across 421 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
