photo shoot for therapist website

I'm an LGBTQ Sex/Gender therapist looking for a space to take a few photos for my website. Would you be open to allowing me to rent for less than 3 hours? I could do Monday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons. There will be 2-3 people total.

e-commerce content photo shoot

I am producing an e-commerce content photo shoot and your location is so in line with our seasonal mood and direction. We are hoping to shoot in both interior/exterior settings and would need access to a basecamp location for hair/makeup, changing space for the model, and catering. We will have an on-set producer to ensure nothing goes awry with the space, hopefully easing any worries you may have. We would ideally like to have a 6-hour day, but start and end time is flexible. Is set-up and break-down time included in the hourly rate?

Having a Photo Shoot in Santa Monica

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 $183 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 $121 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $292 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.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 50+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 62% more than the year prior). Wilshire Montana is the most popular neighborhood within Santa Monica for Photo Shoots with photo studios and video studios topping the list of popular options.

24500+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Santa Monica, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 826 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
