Photography Locations

Helpful Information

 

To help you choose the best location for your photography session, I am putting together a list of Toronto and area photo shoot locations with sample images from past sessions. This will hopefully help you to get a sense of some of the many amazing spots available to you. It will also give you a visual sense of each spot – what the spots look and feel like.

Please keep in mind that the season (winter vs. summer), weather (rainy, cloudy, stormy, sunny), light (sunrise, night, harsh midday sun, golden hour, diffuse), time of day all have a drastic affect on how a location photographs. Additionally, what you wear, the props you bring, and how you look and interact with your partner (are you playful, serious, sensual, adventurous?) will also change the look of your a session. This is just meant to give you some ideas and get you excited! 🙂

You can take a peak at the project below. I have many locations and images to still add (I have to go back in time and revisit seven years of sessions!) but also suspect this will be an ongoing project as I run into new and wonderful locations. 🙂

In the meantime, these are some other great resources I’ve found to help you to find a outstanding location for your session:
