Location is a key ingredient of epic lifestyle photography. Combine this with a perfect angle, lighting, and décor to take your lifestyle portrait to the next level.
First, you should think practically. Figure out where clients would expect to see your brand: in an urban skyscraper, on a desert road, or maybe in a romantic meadow. Possibly all three.
If so, consider the time that lifestyle photographers and cinematographers must dedicate to getting the perfect shot. Think about the logistics of gear transportation, equipment set-up, make-up areas, and wardrobe storage. Capturing the best lifestyle photo make take you farther than expected.
As lifestyle photographers and cinematographers, we recommend choosing one location with a ½ mile radius. If you want to save resources, capture lifestyle portraits and videos in a large production studio. However, only use the studio when necessary. Planning a lifestyle shoot at a breathtaking location is the best approach.
