Perth has no shortage of beautiful places for landscape photography. Generally speaking the best time for landscape images is at either sunset or sunrise. Some of my favourite locations include:
If you were going to choose one photography location to capture a variety of unique images it should be Fremantle (picture above). The beautiful heritage buildings, the industrial port and harbour provide so many photographic locations within a short walk.
Probably the most famous beach in Perth, Cottesloe is a great location for iconic images of the groin and Indiana Tea rooms.
North beach jetty is a local landmark and an awesome foreground when photographing the setting sun. Fishermen casting a line make a great silhouette.
John Oldham Park
Located between Kings Park and the city. Although it is a very central location it is surprisingly less well known than other parks in the area. The park has a beautiful waterfall and is also popular with bird photographers.
This beach is popular beach with surfers and tourists and has seen a lot of development in recent years. The new pool, restaurants and artwork provide lots of photographic opportunities.
Its elevated position overlooking Perth and the Swan River has made it one of the most popular locations for tourists. It is a massive park with a large variety of plants. It is especially popular during the Spring flower festival.
