Actual photo shoot location bookings

photo shoot with a dancer

I'm a photographer, and we've selected your space for an upcoming photo shoot that will be featured by both companies. I'm reaching out to schedule a shoot for 4 hours. Starting at 4:00pm and ending at 8:00pm (my times for that day are flexible, though.) Can you confirm you have availability at that day/time? I will be shooting a series of 3-5 images with a model/dancer, focused on portraiture and dance poses.

profile shots for recording group

Good morning! I’m a part of a new recording group. We are in need of a spot to take profile shots and selected your location as our best option! There will be 4 people in attendance: 3 subjects + 1 photographer. We would only need a plain background to work with, as these will be a quick and simple shoot."

portrait and lifestyle shoot

I'm a portrait and lifestyle photographer. I'm collaborating with a wardrobe stylist and a professional organizer/house healer on a lifestyle shoot focused on essentials/styling/organization of maternity clothes. We'll each be using the images to promote our respective packages. The house looks gorgeous - perfect for us!

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 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 $151 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 30 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 $305 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 4 hours 45 minutes, 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 168% 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.

65800+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Chicago, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 1452 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
