Tip 3. Check out the Weather for the past few days in your location
Yes, that sounds pretty simple but you’ll be surprised how often that little check gets forgotten. In some places like Bali, you can almost set your watch to an afternoon downpour. In places like Melbourne, it can go from warm and sunny to freezing cold and snow in a matter of hours.
Tip 4. Take Water & Food
Are you familiar with the term “HANGRY” I certainly am cause it happens to me! Again, this one sounds like another no-brainer, but the last thing you want is to get dehydrated or hungry with no food or water and if your working with a model or models you won't get your best results. I stop at a convenience store on the way to almost every wedding as well as packing an esky or chilly bin with snacks and cold water.
Tip 5. Have an open mind
As I mentioned above, for me a new location isn’t scary, it's exciting because I have no preconceived ideas of what I’m actually going to shoot. I always have a shoot plan to follow but I’m always open to what the location might offer me and I challenge you to do the same.
