In my Audition Tips Series I have talked about topics like what to wear, how to prepare and what to expect at an audition photo shoot.  Now I am looking at how to choose a location for audition photo shoots that takes advantage of weather, light and the world around you.

1) Scout your locations ahead of time
Be aware of the background so that it suits your theme/style.  Ask questions like, is it easily accessible; is there a location close by to change or use the restroom if you need (or is it secluded enough that you will feel comfortable doing so?).
2) Find out if you need a permit to use the space, for the number of people you need to have at the shoot.
3) Consider the temperature for the time of day you plan to shoot.
Your photographer might specify their preference for lighting, but be aware of what your body can handle.  First morning light may be beautiful, but can your body move well when it’s 40 degrees? Later in the afternoon might be a better choice if you are a warm blooded dancer!
