Actual photo shoot location bookings

profile shots for recording group

Good morning! I’m a part of a new recording group. We are in need of a spot to take profile shots and selected your location as our best option! There will be 4 people in attendance: 3 subjects + 1 photographer. We would only need a plain background to work with, as these will be a quick and simple shoot."

lifestyle product shoot

I'm a freelance photographer, looking for a place to shoot some guitars with and without models. It's a lifestyle product shoot for guitars. I love the vibe of your place and would love to shoot there. It would be a very small shoot. 2-3 musicians, myself and my assistant.

photo shoot with a dancer

I'm a photographer, and we've selected your space for an upcoming photo shoot that will be featured by both companies. I'm reaching out to schedule a shoot for 4 hours. Starting at 4:00pm and ending at 8:00pm (my times for that day are flexible, though.) Can you confirm you have availability at that day/time? I will be shooting a series of 3-5 images with a model/dancer, focused on portraiture and dance poses.

shoot for second print issue

I adore your space but have some questions. I am the creative director for a magazine, we are shooting our second print issue. I need a space for 3 hours and have a 150.00 budget since we don't run ads to keep it an authentic art magazine. The space would be left in perfect shape since it is a small crew and short shoot. I can also shout it out on Instagram and in the issue. If it's not booked and would not be too much of a hassle for you to make this a possibility it would make my week.

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 $175 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 $130 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $286 an hour. Photo Shoot events here are a bit shorter than average and tend to start around 12 p.m. or 1 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 138% 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.

20000+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Santa Monica, with the average host boasting 5.0 stars across 606 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
