5 Best Places to Photograph in Vancouver


Vancouver is one of the most versatile cities in the world. With its close proximity to the ocean, plenty of lush green spaces and miles of mountain range just a few hours north of Seattle; it's no wonder as to why it's been named Canada's top destination.

We've come up with a list of the five best places to photograph in Vancouver. Not only as a way for you to see just how majestic it is, but so that you too can have the opportunity to capture the beauty that this city has to offer.

Capilano Suspension Bridge

Capilano Suspension Bridge park consists of multiple bridges suspended high above the Capilano River and through thick forest wilderness. Walk across the main suspension bridge from one side to the other, where you'll run into the infamous Instagram tree house and a massive network of bridges perched among the trees.

Lynn Canyon

Lynn Canyon is where you can find Vancouver's second suspension bridge. It's a great park to go for a walk, while being surrounded by lush green forest. For the best photographs, visit the bridge early in the morning to avoid the crowds and walk along the newly renovated boardwalk for plenty of other photo opportunities.

Sea to Sky Summit

This intermediate hike does have its challenges, but once the summit is reached you'll instantly be rewarded with some incredible vantage points. The two main ares to photograph are the suspension bridge and Panorama Lookout, which is featured in the image above.

Stanley Park

Designated a national historic site of Canada, Stanley Park is a magnificent green oasis in the midst of an urban landscape. The best vantage point of the Stanley Park seawall can be seen from Lions Gate Bridge. Park at the Prospect Point parking lot and walk along the Lions Gate sidewalk to the middle of the bridge for an opportunity to capture some amazing photographs.

St. Marks Summit

St. Mark’s Summit is a peak along the Howe Sound Crest Trail that offers spectacular views of Howe Sound. This hike may prove to be a little challenging for beginners, but the views are well worth it.
