Hi, I've been approaced by a client to shoot an informational interview. They were wondering about whether the shoot would need to be done in a studio for lighting and audio quality reasons. I tend to think it's not necessary (lots of interviews with actors/celebraties happen in hotel rooms without issue). What are your thoughts?
If for whatever reason their premises is unsuitable, would it be considered professional from the clients point of view, if I just chose to shoot the interview in another office (say, a friends office which has nice wood panelling and no traffic noise). I don't think I can afford to rent a studio!
Interested in your thoughts.
