Prime locations are a hot commodity in the photographer world. They are even hotter when you live in an area where the market is over saturated and the locations are sometimes less than desired.
I have had several shoots where I will be shooting in my favorite location only to find a group of new portrait enthusiasts slowly taking over my spot. Now, I am not stingy about my locations. Instead, I share them freely because what you do with a location looks completely different from how I would use it. I also share my locations to give you better options to fit your session better. If we share our locations, maybe we won’t be standing on top of each other at the next photo shoot we plan.
So that brings me to this posts topic: Location scouting in an over saturated market.
