concept shoot with a piano prop

We're trying to go for a concept shoot from rococo feel to modern feel so this is a great spot! Just so I know the rates. How much would it be to use the piano prop and the other props in the photos? Also I see there is a rooftop, how much extra is access to the rooftop?

Vine star shoot for a magazine

I'm a photographer using this space to shoot Vine stars for a magazine. It is an unpaid shoot so no props or set pieces, just a max of a 2 light set up (I'll bring my own equipment). We'll just need the backdrops & changing/restroom spaces.

wedding first look photo shoot

I am so happy to have found this gorgeous space!! It’s exactly what we've been looking for to take wedding day photos. We plan on using the landscaping and indoor areas for ‘first look’, ‘getting ready’ pictures as well as with the bridal party. Were hoping that we can take photos here before we walk down the aisle on our wedding day!

Having a Photo Shoot in Oakland

Oakland is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 110+ 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 $123 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 $92 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $236 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 5 hours 30 minutes, and are generally a bit smaller than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 110+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 73% more than the year prior). Downtown is the most popular neighborhood within Oakland for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

19300+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Oakland, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 1056 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
