I find it difficult to find good outdoor locations for photographing portraits or groups in Phoenix as the city is now quite large but the dry climate provides little natural green foliage for a background for an outdoor portrait or group shot. The few locations that I do know of are the Scottsdale Civic Center-Library grounds and Encanto Park for a green background and Papago Park for a desert background. Would anyone out there like to suggest outdoor locations in the Phoenix area and post them on this forum.
Also, I would be interested in learning if anyone can recommend interesting in door venues for photographing individuals, groups or models. For example there is Boo's Warehouse at 5th Ave just south of of Madison Street. I would think there may be other locations like nightclubs or resorts that for a fee might allow their location to be used during the day for a photo shoot.
Anyone, please post your suggestions for the greater Phoenix, area.
