homebase location for photo crew

Nice to meet you! I am a photo producer. I'm looking for a "homebase" location for the 18th for a photo crew. The crew will be shooting on the streets throughout the day -- so looking for a place that will hold wardrobe, supplies etc. Hoping we could use your space! Is the space on the 1st floor? If not, is there elevator access?

Having a Photo Shoot in Chicago

Chicago is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 340+ 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 $144 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 27 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $94 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $270 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 340+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 127% 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.

80700+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Chicago, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 1998 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
