Ideas for senior portrait locations?

view profile

DaveWeav says:

I am shooting senior portraits for my daughter and her boyfriend. I am looking for (2) location ideas. My daughter would like an area with flowers and I also need a more masculine setting for her boyfriend.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

The Crystal Rhododenron is a beautiful place over near Reed College. And as for masculine anywhere of in the SE industrial area would work (ie. under the bridge, train tracks, industrial buildings) Actually if you want to do this all within walking distance from each other...you could shoot underneath the Morrison bridge on the SE side, theres a big weeping willow tree thats right off the esplanade and then just turn around and there's the industrial shots...

I will 2nd the Rhody Garden. Was out there two weekends ago and it was beautiful. Lots of benches, beautiful backdrops, bridges, water features, a nice spot.

Another one is the Bishop's Close, along the Willamette, between Portland and Lake Oswego. Open to the public and beautiful gardens. I don't know what their camera policy is, but I have never been hassled. I also haven't taken lights or stands before.

I know the Crystal Rhododenron charges for professional use (ie. wedding photography) and its approx. $150 which is ridiculous. My friend took my wife there to photograph her in her wedding dress before we got married and they told him he had to pay that fee. So they just went elsewhere. But i think your fine as long as you dont make a big production of it.
