Actual photo shoot location bookings

still photos for a singer

Hello! I'm doing still photos for a singer the 21st and would like to know if your space is available. I'm estimating the time needed but it will be somewhere close to these hours. Question, can this studio be completely blacked out or close to, or do you have black foam core. Also, is the piano still available?

Having a Photo Shoot in Chicago

Chicago is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 390+ 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 $133 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 23 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $100 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $243 an hour. Photo Shoot events here are a bit shorter than average and tend to start around 2 p.m. or 3 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 390+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 61% 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.

133700+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Chicago, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 4270 reviews, and 97% of guests saying they would book the space again.
