Having a Photo Shoot in Santa Monica

Santa Monica is a lovely place to host Photo Shoots. With 60+ 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 $168 per hour (but keep in mind that the average Photo Shoot size is about 22 people). It’s easy to find spaces that are smaller and more cost-effective or vice versa. We see small spaces go for $116 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $220 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, and are generally a bit larger than what we see in other cities.

Finding the perfect place to meet is easy with over 60+ spaces available to rent in the city (which is 39% 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.

26700+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Santa Monica, with the average host boasting 5.0 stars across 954 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
