About Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor is the county seat of Washtenaw County. The city is 50 miles due west of Detroit and the region’s metropolitan airport. According to the 2020 census, Ann Arbor is comprised of nearly 50,000 households and 124,000 residents. The MSA of Ann Arbor is contained within Washtenaw County.

There are those who think Ann Arbor was named after an actual person—this is not so. The city was founded by two land speculators in 1824. The wives of these speculators were both named “Ann.” “Arbor” was chosen to describe the dense bur oak forests within the 640-acre tract owned by the founders. The first known use of “Annarbour” was contained within the town plat in 1827.

Today, Ann Arbor holds true to its “arbor” description. Ann Arbor has become known as “Tree Town.” Neighborhoods and parks remain heavily treed and the forests at the periphery remain dense. There are 157 parks within the 30 square miles of the city limits.

Photo Shoot Venue Options in Ann Arbor

  • Permitting

However, if any aspect of an outdoor photo shoot will encroach upon city-owned property, like a sidewalk, a right-of-way, or a park, then a permit is required. If the photo shoot venue is within a public building or taken during the hours of the Kerrytown farmer's market, then a permit will be required for the shoot.

Pros and Cons of Photo Shoot Venues in Ann Arbor

Below are some suggestions to consider when deciding upon a photo shoot venue in Ann Arbor. These suggestions are not meant to imply that the list is complete, nor should the list limit further investigations and considerations by those sponsoring the photo shoot.


  • Choice of venues
    The venue choices offered by the host owners present opportunities for theme and style. When the message of the product melds with a specialty space and décor, then much of the early planning stages are complete.

  • Lifestyle
    The salaries and wages commensurate with the industries within Ann Arbor’s economic base come with high expectations in social gatherings and lifestyle choices. Commercial photography, and the vendors providing the ancillary services, have roles within these lifestyles.

  • Walkability
    The downtown core and the surrounding neighborhoods have walk and bike scores of 93 and 87, respectively. However, the walk score in areas away from the core decreases to 77.


  • Climate
    Although the full effects of summer do not last long, the summers are hot and humid with temperatures averaging in the mid-80s. The winters are long and the effects include below-freezing temperatures and over 50 inches of snow.

  • U of M Film Office
    The University’s film office has non-negotiable guidelines for any commercial photography. The university has the sole discretion of what is filmed on campus notwithstanding those of city hall.

  • No growth opportunity
    An unintended or intended consequence of the greenbelt law is the lack of growth opportunity. The only condition that will allow additional housing units and storefronts is redevelopment. This tight and closed market leads to higher prices.
