Start by analyzing your clients’ needs. You need to know the important factors for shooting in a particular location. A client might need an outdoor location with a backdrop, or they may want a studio to shoot in. Knowing these factors will help you narrow down your options and find the right locations for your photography project.
Once you have identified your ideal place, check out popular travel websites to see what other photographers are saying about the locations you’ll be scouting. These days, you can easily find reviews from previous photographers who visited a particular location and posted their thoughts on it.
Use Social Media
Another great way to get information is through social media platforms. Use Facebook groups or Instagram hashtags like #streetphotography to look for information on popular locations that are good for shooting street photography in general and specific locations that you can use as backdrops for your next project. There are tons of people on social media who post pictures of their favorite places to shoot street photography, so take advantage of that resource!
A Bit Old School
Lastly, check out magazines. They often have articles about popular locations that photographers love to shoot in and include some helpful tips on how to make it work for yourself too!
