Actual photo shoot location bookings

album cover photo shoot

I'm a singer/songwriter/poet/author/professor who needs a space for a photo shoot for my upcoming album cover. My last album won a poetry award for best spoken word album. This upcoming album is a creative duet with fellow poet/singer, who will join me for the shoot. We would like access to the kitchen as an additional background opportunity.

Having a Photo Shoot in Oakland

Oakland is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 70+ 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 Oakland will cost you just about $140 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 12 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $97 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $293 an hour. Photo Shoot events here are a bit shorter than average and tend to start around 11 a.m. or 12 p.m. Most last for 6 hours, and are generally a bit smaller than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 70+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 84% more than the year prior). West Oakland is the most popular neighborhood within Oakland for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

7400+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Oakland, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 454 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
