In every city there are hidden gems scattered all around. Toronto has some great and unique locations to photograph either it's landscape and/or portraits. In this blog post I've compiled my top 5 favourite places to go and take photographs. Some require permits so you would have to acquire prior to doing photo shoots. If there are any locations that you feel that needs the recognition let us know in the comments below!
The park known for it’s historical architectural preservation makes it a unique location in the GTA and great for portraits and wedding photographs. The park is also surrounded by natural forest which adds to the whole experience.
Leslie Spit (Tommy Thompson Park)
Located on the waterfront of Toronto the made-made peninsula is known for its natural habitat of wildlife, cottonwood forests, coastal marshes and cobble beaches. During the summer the park is great for cycling, fishing and hiking.
Located in Hamilton, Albion Falls is one of many waterfalls in the area. If you or the people you are taking photos of are feeling a bit adventures this place is a perfect for portraits.
This place is what I call a hidden gem in Toronto. Located in Scarborough the vast blue body of water is surely to take your breath away. Please advise that the cliff edge has become unstable and dangerous the past year. One tree that was hanging off the edge has already broke off and gone into the water.
Old Mill Inn
Almost a century old, the Old Mill In offers fantastic hotel services and great photo opportunities. The architecture outside as well as inside says a perfect wedding shoot all over it. Beside the Old Mill is the Humber river that also has a beautiful park. To photograph clients here it is required to have a permit. Visit www.oldmilltoronto.com for more information.
