last-minute test photo shoot on DSLR

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?

photo shoot for tennis wear

I am coordinating a photo shoot for a line of tennis wear for women and think your mid century place is ideal. In addition, we’re deciding on the best 4-time time period of the day. I rather like early afternoon with all the covered outdoor spaces, and the photographer thinks no earlier than 3:30 or 4pm. Also, we are hoping to create a variety of photographs using indoor spaces as well.

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 San Francisco

San Francisco is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 270+ 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 San Francisco will cost you just about $208 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 21 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $139 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $435 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 7 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 270+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 31% more than the year prior). Mission District is the most popular neighborhood within San Francisco for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

108900+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in San Francisco, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 4015 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
