Downtown: If you are staying near a city or a trendy spot where people like to hang out in then simply take a walk downtown sometime and locate many cool places that you will be able to capture in one 30 min-1 hr long session! (Brick buildings, parking garages, benches, funky doorways/window frames, capture your subject walking down the sidewalk...the list goes on!
Are you interested in adding some grit or contrast to your cf cards? Take a stroll to your local junkyard and ask for permission to use the location for a shoot. Your local junkyard will be able to add contrast if you had a female wearing a bathing suit or a formal cocktail dress and it certainly adds some amount of grit to your images no matter what your subject may be wearing.
You can say bye-bye to the parks as they are so overpopulated and well, expected! Instead, you can surprise your client and take them on a short hike through a nature trail. Nature trails are awesome as you will stumble across many interesting parts of nature to play within your photos. You may see a lake, a riverbed, maybe a beautiful part of the forest provided that you are shooting a couple, have them carve their names in the tree and take a personalized portrait.
