Below are the rought guidelines we foolow when going for an offsite shoot... We like to make our customers happy and generaly try to be flexible in what we need from your end (other than this thing called ummm... monies ;) ), but we like to work in spaces that are safe to both us and you :)
Since the outdoors are.. well outdoors.. there is little to no protection from the elements. Weather conditions can chage rather quicly. If the shoot happens to become impossible because of unforseen circumstances, we will reschedule the shoot at no cost to you. We will not schedule shoots under rainy conditions (light rain is fine by us... let us know if your game ;)) or under severe wind conditions. We can work with high temperetures... but be advised it can get rather uncomfortable... might ruin the mood. Under sunny conditions, getting lots of drinking water/alkalites is advisable as is application of ample amounts of sunscreen. We keep tracking these conditions from about a week out from the shoot.. and will be in touch with you if something needs atention :)
We generally do not work in any places that place our staff or you under any sort of dnagers (think cliff edges, close to the edges on slippery/high locations). If you need coverage for such conditions, feel free to give us a call to see if something can be worked out ;)
