Having a Photo Shoot in Chicago

Chicago is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 310+ 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 $150 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 31 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $96 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $383 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 larger than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 310+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 221% 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.

57600+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Chicago, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 1243 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
