Picking the right location is probably the most essential concern when it comes to creating stunning top-quality photo/video results.
Locations determine the lighting, backdrop and tone of any photo shoot. And frankly, apart from the talent (if any) what could be more important?! Finding and carefully picking out settings that offer ideal lighting conditions, access to natural landscapes and scenery that allow you to frame and compose killer shots, will ensure that your shoot has a fighting chance of being the absolute best it can be.
Here’s some tips to keep in mind when considering a particular location:
Depending on the type of photo shoot you have in mind, it will influence the degree of privacy that is expected from a particular spot.
Timing your photo shoot perfectly is a must, particularly in those areas that are frequented by numerous people. Also, what type of light are you looking for? What atmosphere do you want in your pictures?
Is the area accessible by foot, car or boat? This is vital since it will determine the type of gear you need. Remember, the more difficult it is to access an area, the more the expenses tend to go up and up!
Do not forget that certain areas are protected by copyright or need special permits in order to shoot. In both cases, make sure you get your permits in order before planning any further.
