lifestyle photo shoot

I am putting together a lifestyle photo shoot for my guitar company. We will have two artists and one photographer with us to capture some lifestyle images throughout the house and the yard. Small crew - real simple shoot.

profile photo shoot

I'm a photographer. I needed a space to do some profile photos and your space looks perfect. I plan on using mostly natural light with your white seamless and a reflector. I was curious to try out your Impact Octacool-9 Fluorescent Light with Softbox if it's available.

photo shoot on a rooftop

I'm helping coordinate a shoot for only an hour. Just need one quick shot of the view on a rooftop and honestly it will end less than an hour :- ) I know you've mentioned there is a 2 hour minimum, but if there is any way to make this work for only an hour please let me know.

pin up photography shoot

it will just be 4 of us, my partner and two models. It's model/pin up photography. Your place is amazing and we would love to shoot it. We are two 49 year old guys who have a studio of our own, so we totally are respectful and careful and all that kinda stuff. As far as the alcohol, I do wanna do a shot where the girls are sharing a glass of wine, but we're not going to be drinking or anything like that. We will maximize our 3 hours in your incredible place. So, a very small little photo shoot, no muss no fuss.

Having a Photo Shoot in San Francisco

San Francisco is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 290+ 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 $219 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 $111 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $535 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 290+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 30% 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.

121200+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in San Francisco, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 4570 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
