MEMORIAL DAY HOLIDAY: We will be closed on Monday, May 27th to celebrate Memorial Day. Any rentals due on Monday can be returned on Tuesday for no additional charge. If you need to pick up an order on Monday please get in touch with us so we can help arrange your rental. Thanks, and have a great long weekend!
Busy Season Special: May is one of our busiest months of the year. To help us out during this busy time we will allow anyone who places an order for pickup on a Friday to pick up on Thursday instead for no additional charge! This applies to Weekend or longer rentals. Place your order like normal on the website but go ahead and select Thursday on the pick up calendar and we will set you up a day early.
Houston Photographers: We are your local source for your rental needs.

be placed online ahead of time (no walk in orders); please read about our local
pickup procedure here.
Trouble Getting To Our Office? We are happy to ship the majority of our items straight to you, or to a FedEx pickup location where you can grab your items after hours or even on weekends.

How it works:
Pick out the lens, camera body, or flash that you want. With our
equipment you can "try before you buy", rent something for a special
occasion or assignment, or try something new just for fun.
Choose the length of time you would like to use the equipment: from 2 nights to 4 weeks, or let us know if you need a custom rental length.
3. Pick up the equipment in person at our office on the West side of Houston; or we ship the equipment straight to you via FedEx, complete with door to door tracking and a return shipping label.
4. You enjoy the equipment for your rental length.
5. Return the equipment in person back to our office anytime on the due date between 10 and 6. If shipping then put the equipment back in the package, use the pre-paid shipping
label, and simply drop off the package at your nearest FedEx location.
How Photo Rental Source is Different:
1. We take reservations! We know you may need equipment at a specific time; so we reserve the equipment for your rental date AFTER your order is placed online.
2. Every lens we rent comes with a protective UV filter, so you don't have to worry about scratching any expensive glass. (if you don't want to use the filter no problem, but we provide it)
All camera bodies come free with 16 gigabytes or more of memory (either
Compact Flash or SD), so you are ready to shoot without any extra
4. If you need a custom rental period just let us know and we can set you up!
