Santa Monica is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 50+ 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 Santa Monica will cost you just about $159 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 23 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $127 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $290 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 6 hours 30 minutes, and are generally a bit smaller than what we see in other cities.
