Your home for everything artistic

Now that the temperatures are getting milder and the weather is more compliant, there are a lot more options to do model and portrait photography outdoors. But sometimes, you will still want to utilize an indoor location. If you don’t have one of your own, and don’t have the resources to pay to rent a fully set-up location, here are a few creative ideas that might work.

Stores

While you will always want to be sure to ask management, many stores will allow you to shoot photos as long as you aren’t a disruption for customers. I know someone who recently shot a model at major craft retailer Michael’s. I’ve also come across some shots done in a Lowe’s Home Improvement Store.

Libraries

These areas can allow for a sophisticated and intellectual feel in your shots and so long as you aren’t doing anything inappropriate or making a lot of noise, there are usually a lot of empty areas  that nobody will mind if you use.

Stations

Subway Stations, Bus Stations, Train Stations, oh my. These spaces can give you a candid vibe and often have interesting (but sometimes challenging) lighting.

Laundromats

Easy to access most of the time, free to hang around, often empty.
