Pro Tip: We highly suggest finding a boutique for your location. Getting a property release from a shop owner is much easier than from a large department store, and helps with avoiding top brand logos. The possibility exists to get the location for free in exchange for the content that you shoot in the store. Small business owners are always looking for content that they can use on their websites and for other marketing purposes. Offering to provide your content for free to the shop owner in exchange for a property release is beneficial to both parties. Also, remember to drop in a tech shot, such as the talent texting or reading messages on their phones.

Location Diversity: Urban, Suburban, and Rural

Casting Considerations: Age, Gender, and Race Diversity. Authenticity and diversity will play an important role in the success of your shoot. “Real” body types recommended.

Before You Shoot:
