Plan your time wisely
Time is of the essence during a photo shoot, especially when you are overseas, so plan your schedule effectively.
“Don’t be overly ambitious—just because you have three days to shoot doesn’t mean you should squeeze in six to ten locations or have up to ten outfit changes. More locations does not equate to more usable photos, and if the distance between each location is great, you will end up spending most of your time in the car instead,” he advises.
Travelling time aside, make sure you have ample time for your prep team to do your makeup and hair, as well as for the photographer to set up lighting and equipment.
“Discuss with your photographer and seek their input on how much time is required per location, so there is sufficient buffer time for him/her to set up. If there is someone to assist the photographer, that will certainly be a plus.”
