I’m a native of St John’s and have spent most of my life here. During that time I've photographed the area extensively and enjoy capturing its history and character. Speaking from experience here is my list of the top ten places to photograph in the St John’s area.
1. Cabot Tower / Signal Hill
2. Cape Spear
You will find great walking trails at Cape Spear, miraculous sunrises and revitalizing North Atlantic fresh air! So you’re bound to get some great photographs and after a few breaths of that great fresh air your lungs will love you! :-)

3. Bowring Park

4. On the Waterfront

6. The Rooms
The viewing deck allows a great view of the city, a lovely high vantage point. Best light to photograph the city is in the afternoon.

7. Petty Harbour
8. Quidi Vidi Lake
A lovely lake with a popular walking trail and there are bald eagles, hawks and otters in the area year round. If you want a chance to photograph either you have to be patient and keep a sharp eye. Best times to sight these animals would be early morning.

9. Quidi Vidi Village
A little fishing village that became a part of St John’s many years ago.
Calm After the Storm
10. The War Memorial
The War Memorial is Newfoundland’s shrine and is in a part of the city blossoming with colour and character.
