In a location portrait the location amplifies the message or feeling you want to impart with the image. This can be the overal feel and ambience of a company or location, or the action that is executed in the photo. The key to making a good location portrait is a good concept and optimal preparation, keeping in mind the (im)possibilities on set. I would love to help you realise a portrait that fully supports the message you would like to transmit.

Frequently asked questions
In principle, there are two reasons for taking a portrait on location and not in the studio.
- Content. You want the environment to support your story or identity. Example: You sell solar panels and want to be photographed on a roof between your panels.
- Practical. You have little time and you cannot or do not want to come to the studio. In that case I will come to your workplace or private environment. We will then choose a suitable place for your photo together.
We will discuss what atmosphere the portraits should have. That atmosphere can then be supported by a location. It doesn’t have to be very literal, but a business look is easily supported, for example, by modern architecture with a lot of glass and steel.
The fact that it is your office makes it by definition suitable as a location for your portraits. The question is whether you find it attractive enough to use in your communication and whether the environment adds to the intended purpose of the photos. In principle you will have to answer that question yourself. If you can send me photos, I would be happy to help.
No problem. I always have enough light with me to illuminate a location if necessary.
Yes. Everything is for rent. I work with location agencies that can rent out locations in any imaginable style for a fee.
The location check takes place prior to the photography, preferably a few days before the photography moment. The goal is to determine viewpoints and get an idea of the lighting conditions on site. Thorough preparation will easily keep the final photography ahead of the agreed time.
Certainly, it is possible. It is advisable to think carefully about the purpose of the photos in advance. For a portrait with a businesslike appearance, it is better not to meet in the countryside.
I always try to have an indoor location as an alternative for bad weather conditions as well. If that is not possible or desired, we will have to keep a close eye on the weather forecast and, if necessary, move the shoot to a better day. Radiant sun is not necessary for anything and has a negative effect on portrait photography. It is best to work with a cloudy sky.
