portrait photo shoot

I'm looking for a place for a little portrait photo shoot for 2 hours. This lovely place attracts me a lot. There are only two of us coming, me and my model. We probably start at 3 pm on Sunday. I just want to check if this place is available or not.

high fashion style shoot

I just wanted to check in and see if your space was available on the 25th of next month? It looks perfect for the shoot I am planning! I am a fashion photographer and am coming over to work on some projects and travel. This project is 'sidewalk studio' where I am wanting to invite passers by to model in a high fashion style shoot. In using 'everyday' people in the place of fashion models I wish to explore representation and identity. I would need to set up a backdrop so am wondering if it is possible to move furniture etc if it is needed?

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 $187 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 $119 an hour with larger or more upscale venues averaging $315 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 66% 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.

22900+ people have used a Peerspace location for their Photo Shoots in Santa Monica, with the average host boasting 4.9 stars across 741 reviews, and 98% of guests saying they would book the space again.
