Actual photo shoot location bookings

simple portrait shoot

I would just like to inform you of the shoot that I would like to do in your space. It is a simple portrait shoot using your space as one of the characters in the scene and our model as the other. I have a stylist who will be providing clothing as well. We should only be at the most 4 people if a makeup artist comes but it will likely be 3, the model, stylist, and myself. How do we get in and out? Should we book an extra hour for clean up or is that all included in the cleanup fee?

still photos for a singer

Hello! I'm doing still photos for a singer the 21st and would like to know if your space is available. I'm estimating the time needed but it will be somewhere close to these hours. Question, can this studio be completely blacked out or close to, or do you have black foam core. Also, is the piano still available?

portrait photo shoot

I'm a fine art photographer working with large view camera and black & white film. I am interested in your studio for a portrait shoot. There are several dates that work, but the time is important for the person I will be photographing. I am assuming for the duration of the rental that no one else would be in the space, is that a correct assumption?

I'm the content lead at women's fashion brand. We're shooting content (photo and BTS video) for an upcoming campaign all about size inclusivity and the importance our brand places on finding the perfect fit for every customer.One of our models changed her availability very last-minute and we were forced to shift a little bit. LOVE your space and think it's so perfect for what we want to create.

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 $224 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 $118 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $575 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 50+ 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.

25000+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Santa Monica, with the average host boasting 5.0 stars across 839 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
