Are you planning a photoshoot in this major city of the West Midlands? Offering an unusual combination of historical architecture and 21st-century energy, Birmingham is a great choice for a unique artistic endeavour. Check out the city's network of canals and towpaths leading outward from Sherborne Wharf and consider involving the area's trendy shops and cafes in your shoot. If you want to bring a bit more greenery into the take, consider areas such as the Botanical Garden and areas around Moseley Bog for a start.
If you are holding a small-sized photoshoot in the city, you will not need to request council permission. However, if you plan to bring a large crew for your photoshoot, you will need to request a permit from the proper city department. Locations such as municipal property, public footpaths, green space and car parks will always require you to apply for a permit before your photoshoot. Photoshoots in private homes and properties are also subject to these rules and regulations. Proof of liability insurance as well as risk assessments will be required with your application.
When hiring a location for a photoshoot in this area, be aware that costs will vary widely depending on the location. For a studio, expect prices to start around £70 for an hour or £300 for full-day hire. For outdoor locations, you will need to factor in the application fee for a permit. Prices will start at £50 and range upwards to £300 and include various charges. For a private location, prices can range from £20 or more per hour. (All data from Tagvenue.)
This city is a favourite with photographers for a good reason. There are some traditional iconic locations for striking shots in places such as the stadiums at Villa Park and St Andrew's or the Bullring or Grand Central shopping centres. However, many other areas are perhaps a bit off the beaten track, but worth a look. The towpaths and canals of the city are high on the list of beautiful locations. Radiating outwards from Sherborne Wharf, this network passes through some of the city's most appealing areas. For vintage charm, this is the place to start. For a more natural backdrop, check out the Botanical Gardens or areas such as Joy's Wood Local Nature Reserve or Edgbaston. For unspoiled charm, you cannot beat these photoshoot locations. Modern architectural triumphs also deserve a look in. Check out areas such as Brindleyplace or the modern art gallery Ikon. Birmingham also offers several underdeveloped areas such as The Bond for a more natural look.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
