Pros and Cons of Study Spaces in Chicago

Chicago is home to some of the world's most bustling and innovative study spaces. From libraries to co-working hubs, there's something for every type of learner in this vibrant city. But as with any decision, you should weigh the pros and cons before investing your time and energy into a particular study space.


  • The city is renowned for its architecture and stunning skyline, which provide perfect backdrops for outdoor photo shoots to enhance the footage recorded within a study space.

  • It isn’t a terrible idea to draw inspiration from the city’s sports culture when exploring photo shoot themes or ideas to dress up the study space for your project.

  • The Chicago O’hare International Airport makes the city accessible from diverse locations across the globe, making it an ideal destination for a photo shoot with a team of crew or cast members coming from far and wide.


  • Winter is a terrible time to schedule an outdoor photo shoot in Chicago. It gets extremely windy and snowy at that time.

  • Chicago traffic can cause costly delays, particularly in the case of time-sensitive photo shoots or if you are working with limited time at a study space.

  • Given that parking is also a problem in the city, choose a photo shoot location with ample space to make it easy to haul photography equipment into the study space.

Tips on How to Organize Study Space Photo Shoots in Chicago

With the city's diverse range of options, from libraries to bookstores to cafes, it's important to consider various factors before choosing a study space for your photo shoot. Here are some tips on organizing a photo shoot at a study space in Chicago:

  • Choose the right space: Consider factors such as accessibility and the square footage available when selecting a study space for your photo shoot. Aspects such as lighting, furniture layout, and surrounding traffic should also help with the decision.

  • Use the resources available: Take advantage of all available resources within your chosen environment. From projectors and TV screens to WiFi access, several amenities provided by the venue could prove beneficial to your specific project.

  • Create a shots list: Work with a detailed shots list outlining all the possible angles you want to capture during the photo shoot. It helps keep track of what needs to be done at different points and also makes sure that nothing is forgotten.

  • Ventilation: Make sure that the study space is properly ventilated, particularly if you are working with a large team and lighting equipment that generates additional heat. Get portable fans to work with so that you can control the environment to the best of your abilities.

  • Take Breaks: Schedule snack and meal breaks to give everyone enough time to recharge. Have a caterer deliver a fresh-made custom menu that considers dietary restrictions and allergies.
