Nearby parking, jacuzzi, private roof terrace, wet room, rooms big enough to take a flash head, stand and an umbrella

I had a home shoot - at my home - and the model complained it was too clean!



Was she unhappy with the anti-bacterial scrub, the hair nets or the semiconductor-fabrication-jumpsuit that you made her wear?

I shot a girl who was obsessive clean. It did look like a showhouse (all the time according to her husband) a place for everything and everything in its place. After finishing my coffee, the cup was whisked away, washed and put back in the cupboard, in its proper place, almost before I'd managed to swallow the last mouthful.

Most photographers like my home for shoots because , a) It is very clean b) The rooms are large so they can get the kit in & stand back for a shot c)I can offer the full range of my outfits & lingerie d) They get tea & biscuits .

I like home shoots, it gives something different.
I would like to see clean and tidy! Nothing worse than mess everywhere, dust everywhere, cables all over the place etc.
Light and airy is good, however i have portable lights.
Bit of space.
Can you make a good cup of tea...? Thats my dealbreaker... :-)
My kit is fairly portable but walking around with that amount is something i dont like to do too often. Handy if there is parking, although ive done some walks before.
