high fashion style shoot

I just wanted to check in and see if your space was available on the 25th of next month? It looks perfect for the shoot I am planning! I am a fashion photographer and am coming over to work on some projects and travel. This project is 'sidewalk studio' where I am wanting to invite passers by to model in a high fashion style shoot. In using 'everyday' people in the place of fashion models I wish to explore representation and identity. I would need to set up a backdrop so am wondering if it is possible to move furniture etc if it is needed?

Having a Photo Shoot in Chicago

Chicago is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 370+ 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 $141 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 25 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 $261 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 370+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 55% 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.

103300+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Chicago, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 2813 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
