There are several factors to consider when determining location and space for a photo shoot. I will work with you in advance to determine the best location for the shoot, once we have met and discussed your objectives.
We will discuss the type of photograph to be taken.
- An environmental photo is shot on site, using an existing office space or building.
- A studio portrait is sometimes shot against a backdrop that I can bring to your space or can be set up in a studio.
- Photos can be group shots, individual photos or a combination of both.
We will discuss other logistical considerations, such as the number of working electrical sockets, the ideal lighting requirements, furniture needed, and the possibility of moving furniture around.
If the photo shoot will be near a window, I will do what is called a “location scout” ahead of time to evaluate the light during the time of the actual shoot. I need to see the direction of the light, which can affect the photograph. If we decide on an outdoor shoot, different equipment will be needed, and we will evaluate that as well.
Once these questions are answered, we will work together to determine the set up and location and make sure that you can reserve the space needed as necessary.
