backyard shoot with a model

So we will be shooting mostly in your backyard and possibly exclusively at the bathtub, but that depends on how long it takes to get the shots. It will be one model, me and an assistant and we will be bringing a sheer curtain to hang up above the tub to diffuse the light. Will I need to bring a ladder to hang the material and will I be able to drape it without using pins or tape or anything like that?

small test shoot with an actress

I am a small business photographer mainly. The shoot I have planned tomorrow is just a small test shoot with a model /actress. I'll be bringing a few of my own lights, stands and modifiers but other than that is a simple shoot. nothing that'll dirty up the place. I just want a nice clean, well light space.

Having a Photo Shoot in Chicago

Chicago is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 360+ 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 $142 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 26 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $99 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $262 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 30 minutes, and are generally a bit larger than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 360+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 68% 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.

94400+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Chicago, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 2457 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
