social media photo shoot

We're planning to shoot a social media photo shoot for one of my company's clients. We need a bathtub to shoot a "relaxing bath" scene (no people) and a couch area for a mother + daughter portrait scene. We also need to shoot some plants with natural light. Plants would be brought in as props.

backyard shoot with a model

So we will be shooting mostly in your backyard and possibly exclusively at the bathtub, but that depends on how long it takes to get the shots. It will be one model, me and an assistant and we will be bringing a sheer curtain to hang up above the tub to diffuse the light. Will I need to bring a ladder to hang the material and will I be able to drape it without using pins or tape or anything like that?

photo shoot for a fashion publication

I am the Creative Director for an art and fashion publication that fosters self-expression and gives young, aspiring artists the chance to join forces in a collaborative, safe space. I am working on my fifth issue and would love to schedule a photo shoot in your space on the 29th for 4 hours. I will have two models, one photographer, one makeup artist, and myself in attendance. I also would love to have different color backdrops set up if that can be arranged.

photo shoot with a male model

I'm a photographer and I am planning a very small photo shoot. It will just be me and one male model. The model is interested in doing some gender bending type looks, so it might be awesome to use some of the props you have! Thank you so much in advance, the space looks amazing....

Having a Photo Shoot in Oakland

Oakland is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 80+ 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 $139 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 $103 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $292 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 80+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 62% 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.

10500+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Oakland, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 633 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
