Boston is full of history and incredible for photography. From colonial houses to beautiful greenery Boston is full of places to photograph.

Here are the best places to photograph in Boston, Massachusetts:

Acorn Street

Acorn Street by @yanan.aurora

Probably one of the most iconic streets in the United States; Acorn street features an incredible cobbled street. Lined with beautiful houses you’ll feel like you stepped into back in time.

Preferably visit after rain to get the full effect of the cobblestone street in your photo.

Bates Hall of the Boston Public Library

Bates Hall in the Boston public library has stunning coffered ceiling. Best of all it’s free to enter, just keep quiet when you’re in Bates Hall since people are likely working and reading.

It’s hard to resist the stunning row houses in the Beacon Hill neighborhood.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is full of art and a fantastic courtyard.

The Boston Public Garden is located in the heart of Boston and is loaded with 600 different types of trees and plenty of flowers. Just a great place to relax and to take photos on a sunny day. In the center of the park is a statue of George Washington riding a horse.

Another park you can’t miss in Boston is the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park. Great to visit when the rose garden is in full bloom.

Leonard P. Zakim Bridge by @chrisrocco

One of Boston’s most unique structures is the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge. With its unique suspension system you’ll want to get a photo of it lit up at night. There is a walking path through it but you’ll most likely want to explore to find the best angle.

Very similar to the Washington Monument in DC you can see the Bunker Hill Monument poking over the houses in northern Boston. Plus if you climb the 294 steps to the top you can get scenic views of Boston.

Boston Skyline from Fan Pier Park

Fan Pier Park is a great spot to get a view of the Boston skyline at night. It’s fun to work with the angles especially with the massive chain running down the pier.

It’s important to stay motivated as photographer. Any creative field can have its ups and downs but it’s important to stick to your photography.

Photography can be an up and down struggle, especially if your income depends on it. Keeping your focus is important especially when you have to buckle down to deliver photos to a client.

Whether you’re a wedding photographer dealing with hundreds of clients or just growing your photography skills it’s important to stay inspired.

Here are over 150 inspirational photography quotes.

'Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure.'
Tony Benn
'I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.'

'In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.'
Alfred Stieglitz

Bruce Gilden
'A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.'

Edward Steichen
'Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies.'

Edward Steichen
'It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.'

Edward Weston
'There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.'

You may remember when the National Building Museum was transformed into a massive ball bit by Snarkitecture. Well they are back with an all new installation called Fun House DC. The fun house is loaded with rooms full of pieces from Snarkitecture’s history including their iconic white ball pit in the back of the house.

This installation is sure to be king of the selfies for the summer with it’s massive ball pit in the back to dunk your entire body into.

Photos from Fun House DC

The entrance to Fun House in the main hall of the Building Museum

The entrance to the installation is filled with massive seating that spells out fun house when viewed from the upper levels.

One of my favorite rooms in Fun House was full of white streamers you could walk though.

Near the pools in the back yard pools is a great spot for portraits. This little house shaped tunnel gets smaller as you walk in for a fun portrait.

Here are some more photos from the exhibition:

Botany Bay is a 4,687 acre wildlife preserve full of unique vegetation located on Edisto Island in South Carolina. With its huge 2.8 mile long shore full of dead trees this is a great destination for nature and landscape photographers.

Entrance to Botany Bay is free but a donation is recommended. When entering Botany Bay you’ll have to sign in using your license plate number and you can pick up a map with information of all the sights.

Here are some of the best things to photograph in Botany Bay Plantation:

Tunnel of Oak Trees

Avenue of oaks leading down to the entrance of Botany Bay

The first thing you’ll see when driving to Botany Bay is the avenue of mossy oak trees. There isn’t much traffic on the road so it’s easy enough to stop and wait for cars to drive though.

The entire wildlife preserve is a dirt road with many bumps. I don’t think many cars would have trouble driving here but I could see it being a bit cumbersome after a heavy rain.

The Eroding Beach at Botany Bay

Dead Tree on the shore of Botany Bay

The main highlight of Botany Bay is its massive shore full of dead trees and overgrowth. Depending on the tide and time of day this location can change quite a bit.

I’d highly recommend bringing an ND filter to fully capture the sea and cloud.

Walking Trail to Botany Bay Beach

Using the walking trail to access the beach is mandatory. It’s about a 10 minute drive from the entrance to the beach parking lot which had plenty of parking during my visit. The walk to the beach using the trail is about 1/2 a mile which will probably take about 15 minutes of walking.

If you’re planning to photograph sunrise here be sure to scout the location beforehand. Since the gates open 30 minutes before sunrise you have very limited time to make it to the beach.

The entire beach is about two miles so you could easily spend a couple of hours just walking up and down the beach.

Ice House at Bleak Hall Plantation

Ice House at the Bleak Hall Plantation

One of the only standing buildings left on the plantation is the ice house. Located on the Bleak Hall plantation which is one of the first things you’ll see in Botany Bay. There is also a small gardening shed on the plantation but the Ice House is far more fun to photograph.

Botany Bay Driving Tour

Mossy trees during the driving tour

When you first enter Botany Bay you’ll be given a map at the sign in booth which will give you information about stops on the driving tour. The driving tour in Botany Bay consists of a single one way road looping around showing off lakes, trees, and rubble of historical buildings.

Hours & Rules

Hours of Botany Bay are typically 30 minutes before sunrise and 30 minutes after sunset. The gate closes at 8pm to prevent new people from entering but when exiting the gate automatically opens.

At the main entrance is a daily updated list of hours and rules which is also located before the beach. They prohibit visiting the beach at high tide but the hours will be listed on the board when you enter.

Due to the fact that Botany Bay is a wildlife preserve taking shells or anything is prohibited. Additionally they have plenty of signs saying no drones so I wouldn’t recommend trying.

The latest art exhibit to be feature at the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum (SAAM) in 2018 is Do Ho Suh’s Almost Home. If you’re in Chinatown it’s worth checking out the SAAM and some of my other favorite places to photograph in DC.

Do Ho Suh is known for his immersive architectural installations crafted with ethereal fabric and this exhibit does not disappoint.

The exhibit’s centerpiece is what Suh calls the “Hub” which is a long narrow hallway created from fabric and wire. There are many details to note in each room of the hallway such as detailed locks, door knobs, and sprinklers all made from fabric.

We got an exclusive look at the “Hub” but I can foresee this having a long line during peak times.

In addition to the “Hub” Suh has created many household items made out of fabric which he calls “Specimens”. It’s amazing to see the level of detail in items such as fire extinguishers, microwaves, and even light bulbs. Even the detail of the text on the lightbulbs is captured with thread.
