Notes for location Photoshoot organisers 

My usual setup time is about 45 minutes ( including coffee !) 

I will need parking nearby - I have equipment on a trolley

If there are special entrance and parking instructions then please be in contact - my car registration number is 7592331.

Send out emails with this link the night before reminding people to bring the correct clothing!

I do not need windows  - if there are windows  they should have blinds, if the area is very bright. If there are no blinds please let me know so I can bring blackout material.                      

I will need a bar stool - if there is not one available then let me know and I will bring one.

The makeup artist needs a suitable working space - it can be in a separate area like a small office - best if there is natural window light but they mostly have their own lights

If there is no makeup artist ( MUA ) then I will apply translucent powder 

Clothes are THE most important  aspect - if they don't bring suitable clothes, there is not much we can do .

Thanks
