"...Versatile Gallery is such a great space with good daylight. We have a photo shoot there and the staff are very helpful. Many of our crew stayed longer than expected on the shoot and got parking tickets but it's only $15 each. Pretty sweet surprise given it..."

lookbook production

We are in the process of producing our Lookbook, and would love to utilize your awesome home as one of our shooting locations. Our production team is small, around 12-15 people total. We would need to be there just one day, and we would need to some empty the room of furniture and accessories, as that's our prime subject for our catalog and we will be bringing our own. We are professional furniture movers, so I can assure you we will exercise great caution, respect, and care with all aspects of moving items in and out of your home. We will only be shooting photos and some behind the scenes video clips for social media. This amazing home has all of us swooning here in the marketing department.

couple mini-session photo shoot

I am very interested in your space for valentine mini session photo shoots. I think it'd work perfectly with that ground level space with such pretty natural light. My one question to you would be if I'm allowed to move the furniture around? I'm hoping to create a simple backdrop against a plain white wall in the front of the space. Are you OK with simple scotch tape to hold up something simple like a heart garland? Also I'd bring some food in - probably a couple snacks and drinks (no alcohol) that is OK correct? Thanks so much for your help!!

still photos for a singer

Hello! I'm doing still photos for a singer the 21st and would like to know if your space is available. I'm estimating the time needed but it will be somewhere close to these hours. Question, can this studio be completely blacked out or close to, or do you have black foam core. Also, is the piano still available?

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 $199 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 $120 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $525 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 15 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 37% 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.

131700+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in San Francisco, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 5261 reviews, and 97% of guests saying they would book the space again.
