Go Local

With the Economy being what it is I know that alot of photographers are feeling it and having to decide if they would rather go out and rent a studio for a few hours if they dont have one with unlimited free access or purchase upgrades for their equipment. As of late I have been thinking about this quite often and have come up with a practical solution until our studio is complete.

The Solution that I have found is our local parks. In my experience most local parks do not charge a fee for shooting and just ask that you keep it clean, if you are doing something major they may ask you to rent out a pavilion or for a small fee but its much less then an hour of studio time.

Another Great thing about your parks is that you are already paying for them with your taxes so you may as well enjoy them and help those in charge justify keeping them and keeping them clean.

For a list of your local parks just check out your local government sites, county, state and city will have their list.

Here are a couple of shots from my local parks.

Neighborhood Parks

Wildlife Sanctuaries

State Parks

And Lets not forget our beautiful Beaches

So true,some of the best images can be found so close to home.As the saying goes "can't see the wood for the trees".
