About Birmingham

Birmingham is located in the middle of England and is very well-connected to the surrounding cities such as London, Cardiff, Sheffield and Manchester. Due to Birmingham's size, it consists of many captivating and photogenic spots such as the Birmingham canals, Sutton Park, Cannon Hill Park and the Bullring Shopping Centre, to name a few. The shopping centre comprises two main malls connected by an underground tunnel system. The mall also features a unique landmark building designed by Future Systems, which has 15,000 aluminium disks on its exterior. Through your camera lens, the building can look phenomenal! It has also won over eight RIBA Awards.

Another noteworthy picturesque outdoor location is Aston Hall. Aston Hall is a Grade I listed building built between 1618 and 1635. In modern days, the Jacobean house operates as a museum, showing the history of the building in all its grandeur.

Birmingham has many picture-perfect spots, old and new, awaiting a photographer like you to come along and capture all its glory.

Photoshoot Options in Birmingham

Finding the ideal photoshoot location can be daunting, but with proper research, you'll soon get the perfect location for your project. Now that we know a few things about Birmingham, let’s take a look at the different options the city has to offer to make your photoshoot successful.

  • Prop Hire
    After you have found your space, hiring some props to help elevate the fore and background of your shot can be very beneficial. Whether they're for portraits or landscapes, props can complete the theme that you have in mind. If you're doing a product photoshoot, there is a wide range of props that can help greatly improve your set-up and keep the product being sold in focus.
  • Furniture Hire
    Like props, furniture can help you set the scene for your photoshoot, especially if you've hired a blank studio. Rental companies offer various items in their stock, from comfy lounge chairs to bar set-ups. The options are endless, so you're free to decorate your photoshoot space however you want.
  • Camera Hire
    Getting the right camera and accessories can make or break your photoshoot. From different lenses and lighting to the different types of camera, the equipment you use will determine the quality of your work. Many camera rental companies have professionals who can offer you advice and help you find the right camera equipment to achieve your creative vision.
  • Catering
    Photoshoots often take several hours to a few days to complete. If you're spending that much time in the studio of your choice, hiring some catering not only gets you energised for the day but also saves you time from having to get food outside. Many catering services can deliver simple sandwich platters, appetisers and buffets to your place. How convenient!

Pros and Cons of Photoshoots in Birmingham

Pros

  • Well-connected
    Since Birmingham is located in the central part of England, it's connected to surrounding big cities and smaller towns. If you are not initially from Birmingham and are looking to do your photoshoot here, you'll be able to get to the city easily by train.
  • Cost
    Birmingham has a relatively affordable cost of living; therefore, it is cheaper to pay for a photoshoot location and rental services here than it would be in a city such as London or Manchester. You can use those extra few pounds on other aspects such as catering or equipment.

  • Lots to do
    Birmingham offers many attractions that you can visit and activities you can do after your photoshoot. Some of the best shopping can be done in the city at the Bullring Shopping Centre.

Cons

  • Transit
    Although Birmingham’s transportation system is efficient, it's also more expensive than in other cities like Manchester. This is something to keep in mind if you're planning to navigate the city or switch between locations for your photoshoot.
  • Rain
    Birmingham is known to be a very rainy city. While in Birmingham, make sure to bring some rain gear if you plan to walk around! If you're doing your photoshoot outside, it would be wise to hire some marquee or tent as backup especially if the weather's already not looking good.
  • Traffic
    Due to the high volume of residents and commuters, the traffic in Birmingham can be very heavy. Anticipate possible delays on delivery of photoshoot equipment or catering.
