Make sure you and the client is happy with the location of the photoshoot and check the weather beforehand! There is no point going ahead with a photoshoot in a beautiful outdoors location if a thunderstorm is predicted. If there is a deadline that the client needs to stick with, make sure you have a back up wet-weather option! Take into account timings of the location you have chosen – it may be that the location is going to be super busy at certain times of the day and it might be worth shooting at a different time.
LIGHT! Make sure that the location and timings of your shoot work best with the light. It is such a big influence in the photoshoot and can really make or break an image. Be clear and check what time the light is going to be best at the location you are choosing. For example, in the images below – I wanted to photograph Tahila in the morning so that the light was low and we could create shadows with her body positioning.
It’s really important to professionally send across the final edits. Clients won’t be happy if they have to wait a long time to download one photo at a time or if it requires various emails in order for them to receive their final images. Find a way that works for you but that is also professional, I mainly use WeTransfer Plus but Google Drive and Dropbox are other great programs to use.
I hope these tips have helped when planning your next shoot!
