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.

poet's music video and interview

I want to purchase your venue for my music video. I am a poet I am hoping to do two videos one will be my interview video which I will have on your photo shoot room and then my next video will be on your rooftop. This is not a regular music video what it is can be described as a poetic video were I recit one of my poems and act it out in a skit. Your venue is my first choice I love it and will definitely return to book more.

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 $235 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 $126 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $530 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 45 minutes, 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 49% 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.

23500+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Santa Monica, with the average host boasting 5.0 stars across 787 reviews, and 99% of guests saying they would book the space again.
