The host and production studio were great to work with. Allowed us to ship a couple items in since we were traveling from out of town, and communicated very well. We were able to capture all the content we needed. Only small issue was there is no AC and unfortunately we were shooting on a day that was a little hotter than normal for San Francisco, so we weren't able to utilize the upstairs areas much because it was to warm for crew and talent. But that was just a minor hiccup and we were able to work around it.

I had a great time at this studio! Everything we needed was there and Shannon was so friendly and helpful! There is amazing natural light that comes in from the sky roof as well. 10/10 would book again. <3

Randy's home couldn't have been a more perfect setting for our shoot. Incredibly well-lit, beautiful design, and spacious rooms. Plus, working with Randy was a dream!

Pros and Cons of Photo Shoots in Berkeley

Berkeley is a beautiful city with a laidback vibe that lends it an enchanting air. Still, there are benefits and drawbacks to holding a photo shoot here that should be carefully considered before committing to a venue in Berkeley.


  • Pleasant weather year-round
    With blue skies, warm temperatures, and little rain year-round, Berkeley is one city that has the ideal climate that makes you feel like you’re living in a place where it is endless summer.

  • Exciting cultural scene
    From museums to musicians, outdoor adventures, and even incredible cuisine, Berkeley is one city that offers it all.

  • Nearness to San Francisco
    Berkeley offers the feel of small-town residential living yet is close enough to San Francisco that you don’t have to miss out on the best things the big city has to offer.


  • High cost of living
    Sadly, choosing to make Berkely the home of your photo shoot venue could cost you more than you expect. The high taxes and just high prices overall may give you sticker shock.

  • Moderate crime rate
    Though Berkeley by day is a very safe place to be, the nighttime brings out the more nefarious activity. You’ll need to make note of spots where crime most often occurs and carefully avoid them after dark.

  • Noisy neighborhoods
    Because of the large concentration of students in Berkeley, many neighborhoods close to the more popular and well-known universities can be quite noisy at times, particularly during the evening hours.
