Photo Shoot Locations Hire Guide

You’re in London and thinking about a great place to snap some superb pictures? You couldn’t have been in a better place! London is dotted all over with both indoor and outdoor photo shoot places at every price range. From eclectic Soho, Covent Garden and Westminster right in the heart of Central London, where inspiring people gather together to get those creative ideas flowing, to more peaceful and quiet neighbourhoods of Dalston and Hackney - they all offer a range of options to choose from! In fact, each part of London has one-of-a-kind locations to offer! So grab your camera and any other equipment you need and hop on our curated list to discover a perfect photo shoot location in no time! 

Before you start your search, however, we recommend creating an action plan. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro or a beginner photographer, or a photo shoot coordinator, these types of plans have many benefits! They clarify your goals - to make the best pictures possible - keep you focused and help the whole photoshoot go smoothly. They also come in handy when you are trying to specify what type of photo shoot location you need, as well as which equipment, extras, etc. To inspire you in making your own plan, we’ve come up with a list of key points to keep in mind while searching for an ideal location.  

Things to keep in mind when hiring a photo shoot location:

  • The studio space you’ll need - Is it a big photoshoot with many models, makeup artists, fashion stylists? Or a smaller one with only a photographer and a model present? You need to think about how big of a space you need to make all the participants feel comfortable in order to conduct the best photoshoot possible.   
  • The facilities you might require - Longer photoshoots require breaks, so it would be great for models and other staff to have a space to relax and eat snacks. Check out locations that offer a kitchen or a dedicated area for breaks. A perfect location should also have a changing room, as well as makeup stations to get the models ready.   
  • Equipment - Think of which equipment is essential for the final outcome to be the best possible. Some locations provide some basic photography equipment in the hire fee, such as backdrops, lighting (strobes, speedlights, or a Three Point Lighting configuration) and some props. For a fashion photo shoot, clothes racks, changing rooms and a makeup table may also come in handy. Some photo shoot venues may also provide retouching and photography assistants. Don’t hesitate to ask venue managers for a more detailed list of the equipment they provide, as well as any additional fees or services. 
  • Match a photo shoot location to the concept - We recommend starting your search once your concept is developed as it needs to match the lighting conditions. Decide which type of lighting will be the most effective for your concept (natural light or artificial lighting) and look for locations that have the best one. Also, make sure the location is accessible for other photo shoot participants. For example, is it close to public transportation or motorways? Remember that your participants have their own schedules, so don’t make them waste their time to reach a certain place.   

Overall, taking photographs in a studio gives you better control over essential elements and ensures that your creativity can have free rein. So whether you’re a professional photographer, keen amateur or commissioning a photographic shoot, remember that your photoshoot location is a key element in taking a great photograph, rather than a mediocre image.

Guests Reviews of Photo Shoot Locations on Tagvenue

Helen Ferguson
Booked Lounge Space at The Att Pynta Lounge
Everything was as described in the advertising. I had been looking for a venue for a personal brand photo shoot, the style and ambience of the lounge was perfect. We were welcomed warmly by Kai and nothing was too much trouble, especially as we arrived late due to train delays. Everything about the experience and the space was relaxing and resonated with the concept we were looking for. Thank you Kai and Poppy for a great experience
Claire Anne Brown
Booked Womb Room at Uterus-Six
Really enjoyed the space, we did a photo shoot and the options for backgrounds and a activities were numerous. The surrounding area was great for some outside photos as well for that East London vibe! Paul met us on the day and was really good at setting guidelines and managing expectations and giving ideas for for different rooms. Definitely slotted into memory for future.
Joy Lorck-Schierning
Booked The Polar Bear Room at The King's Head Members Club

Thank you so much! We look forward to being in touch again soon!
Sarun Gunarajah
Booked CREATIVE HOUSE at Creative House
Ema was great! She was really friendly and welcoming which made me and my crew comfortable. She gave us the freedom and space without any hassle. Highly recommend this listing, great space for pretty much anything. The place was actually better in person than in the pictures. There was literally no negatives. Will definitely think about hiring this place again in the future. 10/10
Eva Sanglante
Booked Fully Equipped Photo Studio at Springfield House Lofts
The space was great value and well-equipped for our needs (fairly simple portrait shots with a few props). A great range of colour backdrops. Roberto's assistant was there to let us in, show us what's what and was then on-hand in the other room to help out if we needed it. He was very friendly and helpful and then gave us our space to get on when we needed to.
Keon West
Booked Photography Studio Hire London at Indra Studios
Indra Studios works really well for me. Very good equipment including several constant lights, multiple (powerful) external flashes easily compatible with any of my cameras, tripods, and a number of backdrops that can also be used as infinity-style flooring for a bit of an extra cost. The big plus, though, is really the people. Friendly, approachable, easy to contact, punctual, profession and easy-going. I never once felt stressed or rushed, or like I didn't have adequate tech support. Really great photos. Would definitely use again.
