If you're looking for a unique location for a photo-shoot... Look no further!
For most of these spots, I have a specific vision in mind: a specific time of day
and wardrobe look-I won't post all my secrets here but consider this list a starting point.
Let me clarify that these are places I WANT to shoot at but:
1. I have to travel to get there, which I am more than willing to do as long as time
and your budget allows for it
2. I am unable to get access to shoot there just by my own ability
I started this list because, it turns out, we all have a lot more access to cool places than we think. Your grandma lives on her own land that you grew up on? Amazing, that's really special let's go there! Your dad works at a swanky hotel downtown with an awesome pool? So cool, let's do some underwater shots! Your family has a second home in Maine that you spend the summer at? Let's goooo!
If any of this list speaks to you... let's make some magic!
