How much does it cost to rent a photo shoot location in Oakland?

Renting photo shoot locations in Oakland will cost you just about $108 per hour (but keep in mind that the average photo shoot size is about 14 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $83 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $127 an hour. Photo Shoot events here are a bit shorter than average and tend to start around 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. Most last for 5 hours 15 minutes, and are generally a bit smaller than what we see in other cities.
