dancer photography

Last minute here but wondering if this studio is available and if it would be possible to float between the front studio and this back studio if neither are already taken? Two dancers, one Photographer is all, should be fairly quick, and aiming to shoot in front of the exposed brick!

Having a Photo Shoot in San Francisco

San Francisco is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 260+ 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 $211 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 $141 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $456 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 260+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 29% 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.

111500+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in San Francisco, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 4082 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
