DIY Photography Set
Location is one of the toughest hurdles photographers face. Just when you find the perfect location, someone tells you that you need to leave. Although frustrating, I understand where they are coming from in this highly litigious country. Landowners realize the liability of letting people on their private property.
It seems like the more dilapidated and grungy the location appears, the more appealing it is to photographers. I used to scout locations all of the time, and had several options spread all over town. I would begin my sessions by loading all my gear, my client, their clothes, and we were off to the shoot. After a couple of years of this, I began to realize the liability I was putting on my business. Putting clients in my vehicle and carting them all over town was both costly and risky. We get so consumed with the idea of creating awesome images that we often overlook the risk.
