Pros and Cons of Photo Shoots in Pasadena

While Pasadena boasts a sunny setting in Southern California that makes it ideal for outdoor photo shoots, the city’s high cost of living and heavy traffic are worth considering.

Advantages

  • Beautiful weather
    Pasadena enjoys beautiful weather throughout the year and few rainy days, making it an ideal place to host an outdoor photo shoot, even in the cooler months.
  • Diversity of venues
    From mid-century mansions to Southern-inspired churches, there’s a diverse choice of photo shoot venues in Pasadena to suit all tastes.
  • Experienced professionals
    Pasadena’s location within the Greater Los Angeles area means you have an abundance of experienced professionals on your doorstep, from photographers to hair and makeup artists and catering companies.
  • Convenient transport options
    Flights from across the globe arrive at Los Angeles International Airport, meaning out-of-state models, photographers, and assistants can easily get to your photo shoot in Pasadena.

  • Proximity to the great outdoors
    Want to stage your photo shoot in a natural setting? Pasadena offers easy access to the rugged mountains that back Los Angeles, as well as being a short drive from the beautiful beaches of the Pacific Ocean.

Disadvantages

  • High costs of living
    Pasadena has one of the highest average sales taxes in the state of California.
  • In-demand vendors and venues
    Pasadena’s a popular place for photo shoots and other events, so there may be some competition when securing vendor services and venues.
  • Traffic
    The traffic in Los Angeles is notorious for coming to a standstill both day and night and is something to take into consideration when deciding on your photo shoot location. In Pasadena, it’s particularly bad when events are taking place at the Rose Bowl.
  • Poor air quality at times
    Nestled up against the mountains, Pasadena experiences poor air quality at times.
  • Relatively high crime rate
    Pasadena has a crime rate that is higher than 70% of California’s other towns and cities, meaning it’s not the safest city to walk around at night.
