Having a Photo Shoot in Oakland

Oakland is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 90+ 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 $131 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 13 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $102 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $268 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 45 minutes, and are generally a bit smaller than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 90+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 76% 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.

14800+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Oakland, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 823 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
