Actual photo shoot location bookings

album cover photo shoot

I'm a singer/songwriter/poet/author/professor who needs a space for a photo shoot for my upcoming album cover. My last album won a poetry award for best spoken word album. This upcoming album is a creative duet with fellow poet/singer, who will join me for the shoot. We would like access to the kitchen as an additional background opportunity.

clothing photo shoot

I have a startup fashion tech company. We're looking into space where we can do a photo shoot of our users in their clothes. Questions: 1. Do you have white seamless I can use? If so what is the charge? 2. I would be interested in renting it out for the full day. Could you please give me a discount? If it works out, we might regularly rent this location. Many thanks.

Having a Photo Shoot in Chicago

Chicago is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 380+ 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 Chicago will cost you just about $138 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 24 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $103 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $256 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 15 minutes, and are generally a bit larger than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 380+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 54% more than the year prior). West Town is the most popular neighborhood within Chicago for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

127600+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Chicago, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 3851 reviews, and 97% of guests saying they would book the space again.
