I offer my clients a few choices of location, and depending upon the type of photo shoot it will be, I like to be able to choose the location accordingly for myself and for my client.
I offer a small intimate studio in my home reserved usually for one-on-one sessions with individual clients or sessions that may include an animal. It allows me to have more creative freedom in regards lighting my subjects and directing them to what to do, without many distractions.
One of my choices for couples or larger groups tends to be my backyard. I am situated on a small lake and depending on the season and type of shoot, the outdoor setting is ideal with the water and the foliage.
For certain clients and special shoots, I have a warehouse available to me near Chicago Ave. and Pulaski, in the City of Chicago. The space is raw in some places and finished in other areas, which has many options for me for either fashion related shoots or music artists. It has a much more urban feel to it.
I do go on location for certain clients and special shoots. Those fees can be negotiated depending on the time involved and the complexity of the production and crew.
