I am a photographer and I have a potential last minute test shoot in the evening on Monday the 8th we will do a bit of stills and a bit of motion no large set up couple umbrellas all shot on DSLR. Can you tell me the floor plan roughly of your space like length and width of the entire studio and the height of the ceiling? Or if you have a floor plan you can send that too. Also what is the power situation do you have 100 AMPS of power?

rooftop for promotional photoshoot

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 Oakland

Oakland is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 100+ 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 $130 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 15 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $98 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $249 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 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 100+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 66% 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.

18700+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Oakland, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 949 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
