Might be a good idea to go out yourself and have a little scout about.

I had a great time years ago on a shoot with a photographer who was shooting me in my hometown, he just told me to bring some clothes and we would go for a walk through town. We just stopped and shot for a few minutes in front of anything we thought looked cool, most of those things wouldn't have been locations others would have suggested "the red paint cracking off back door to the hotel down George street, the cool wall on the bakers across the bride" backdrops which other people probably wouldn't notice or even think of suggesting. It was a hell of a lot of fun just going with the flow, very informal and the photographer got some great pictures.

As Chrissie says, go have a look and see what catches your eye. A local map (or sat nav) is great for marking with those locations.
I've also, like Chrissie, gone walkabout with a model through an area and found details that I'd probably have walked by without my camera and model.

I may miss your point slightly in replying since it's confusingly written.

If you're shooting in Cambridge, and I'd suggest its well worth a shoot. You'll need a taxi into town from the station as the walk is around 15 minutes and usually busy in pedestrian and traffic terms. From the market square in any direction you'll find good backdrops for a picture, from modern to very ancient buildings and with some very expensive and unusual architecture to choose from. If you're a little light on your toes, you can sometimes get into college quads and the like, many of which offer gorgeous settings for a picture, and I'd recommend any area bordering the river also. Maybe get a punt hired, not too expensive and offering lots of flexibility. The botanic gardens are pretty interesting too.

I've worked with the model in Cambridge allow not the botanic which was on the list for this year. As if you read their website that one you do need permission for which I have obtain now. I am really looking for out of Cambridge. The model for this one we been shooting around the market and river for over four years looking for something different.

Allow will check out a watermill soon that I no of. As a picturesque setting.

Allow fifteen minute walk from the Cambridge station that's slow I've walked a model after a shoot back a lot quicker than that and pulling the suitcase.

Gerald, I don't wish to be rude, but you have the most singular grasp of the English language.
