Points to ponder when choosing a location for your best outcome.
Updated: Jul 10, 2019
Location, location, location.
1. What matters to you most? Are you the most important aspect of your portrait session or the environment that surrounds you? If you matter most, then a studio look is a great way to achieve that. No distractions, just you. If you and your environment are equally important, choose a location that is best suited to you. A full-time, professional photography studio should allow for you to have both options as part of your session.
2. Weather. There's nothing like a bright, sunny day to cheer the soul. But certain locations at certain times of the day do not photograph well in bright sun and neither will you. Don't worry if your scheduled session date is cloudy. Overcast always photographs well! But again, a qualified photo team can create stunning images in nearly all conditions and should advise you accordingly.
3. People. If being photographed in a busy, public location makes you self-conscious and uncomfortable, consider choosing a day and time of day when people are less likely to be present.
4. An experienced photographic team is prepared with state-of-the-art equipment and the "know-how" to work in most situations and conditions, to achieve the highest quality images - possible.
