Location Ideas for your Brand Photos

As you begin planning your brand photo session, it’s key to think about location ideas for your brand photos. What’s the story of your brand? How can you choose a location that will compliment it?

You’ve reached out to your favorite brand photographer (us, hopefully?! :)) and now it’s time to start thinking about location ideas for your brand photos! You’ve likely spent countless hours thinking about the story of your brand. Your brand photos should really just help drive that story home. Choosing the right location shouldn’t feel complicated or overwhelming – and we can help you.

If you have a studio or storefront, it’s a great idea to start there! But, if you’re someone who works from home, bouncing around from sofa to dining table, or you just simply don’t have a space you’d love to show off, this list can help!

Here are some of our favorite location ideas for your brand photos.

Rent a local cabin or STR!

Websites like Peerspace & Home Studio List have some great options! You can also connect with your favorite local STRs directly on Instagram or the preferred way of contact listed there or on their direct websites (just don’t reach out via Airbnb or VRBO). Many of them have hourly rental rates & would love to book directly for things like this! Ask us about our favorites in the Fairplay, Alma, and Breckenridge areas!

Haute Haus

And – a fun announcement we’ll officially be sharing the details on soon: our personal home will be available for hourly rentals for our Basecamp clients starting this Summer 2024. Exact dates TBD. Think Mountain Modern Aframe with pops of earthy colors, endless natural light, & aesthetic in every direction! We’ll be offering hourly (2 minimum) & half and full day rentals. Lodging & trades for stays will not be available – because we live there. Just to put that out there from the very beginning. 🙂

Head to your favorite trail. Or backyard!

Colorado is just bursting with beautiful trails and outdoor locations. Think about your favorite spot! If you’re looking for something similar, but also offers privacy and the ability to use chairs, props, etc – each of these following images were shot during sessions on our property outside of Fairplay!

Pine & Peak

Think outside of the box.

Often times, we can really play with the camera & make a meh location magical! These photos were taken in Heather’s garage. She created a faux kitchen, we positioned near the open door for the best light, and look what we created!

Check with the local coffee shop.

Mountain Chic Creative

One of the easiest spots is your favorite local coffee shop! We personally love The Crown and Unravel Coffee in Gravity Haus, both in Breckenridge! Plan your session during a quieter time – we love weekday mornings – and make sure you’re respectful of everyone else there enjoying their brews.
