I'm an architectural photographer, and I shoot products in place many times. I may have the opportunity to travel and shoot some architectural metal decking and ceilings in a newly built, but functioning, airport for a client.
I see some complexity with arranging this shoot that I need some help with. I know this is the Urban Life & Travel talk rather than the Architectural photography forums, but I thought I might get better feedback here.
1. Releases - Although I don't plan on including people in the photographs, there might be a case when they end up in them. Do I need to arrange to have releases for people to sign?
2. Arranging the shoot - Would I need to arrange with TSA, and the building manager ahead of time to get clearance to shoot? I won't be using auxiliary lighting, just the camera/tripod and my basic gear setup.
3. I will be flying into the airport, so I suppose I could shoot it as soon as I land, but the odds of picking up a flight back several hours later might be difficult to arrange. If I have to get back into a terminal and I'm not flying, I see that being a challenge. And if I'm flying to a town I've never been, I might as well stay there a day and check it out.
Any other hurdles I may have to jump through to make this happen? Thanks in advance for your input.
