dance group photo shoot

I have a project with a dance group that wants to shoot photos with an all-white background. It will be 6 dancers plus myself! I believe most of them work during the day and dance after work so they are only free during the night time. We will be doing mostly posed photos and maybe some freezes of their dance routine.

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 $142 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.

103000+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Chicago, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 2800 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
