Tampa Photography Locations Ideas

Here Are Our Tampa Photography Location Recommendations


There are many great Tampa photography locations. From living here most of our lives, we have found some of the most adorable Tampa photography locations that are great to use for all session types. We have tried to gather a wide variety of our favorite Tampa photography locations: beaches, cities, parks, and downtown areas. (This page is always in progress, and we are still working on finishing videos for each spot so more are being added soon.) 


Our photo sessions are not limited to the Tampa Photography locations on this list. The truth is we love trying new locations. if you have a location in mind for your photography session please let us know and we would love to try it with you.


Sand Key Park Beach

Location Type: Beach
Address: 1060 Gulf Blvd, Clearwater, FL 33767
Parking fee: $5


Fred Howard Park Beach

Location Type: Beach & Park
Address: Howard Park Causeway, Tarpon Springs, FL 34689
Parking fee: $5

Fred Howard is such a fun spot for a photoshoot. The majority of people like to spend all of a photo session on the beach, and you know what? That’s okay because it is absolutely gorgeous for photos.

There is also a large park before the beach that makes this location very diverse in what it offers. It usually is not crowded with people during the week, making it very easy to capture all the great spots around the beach. Depending on if it is low or high tide (you want low tide), it opens up a few places on the beach that make for some unique photos. When it is low tide, you get some fantastic large rocks that are covered in vines giving it a real island feel. If you can, low tide is the time to go, but if that doesn’t work out, you have some of the best palm trees around. This beach is the perfect definition of Florida. (Great for photos, not swimming!)

Philippe Park

Location Type: Park
Address: 2525 Philippe Pkwy, Safety Harbor, FL 34695
Parking fee: None

Let me tell you, Philippe Park is a total hotspot! If you don’t already have photos here, I am clearly not doing my job right. Some would “this park say is to die for” from the large tree canopy over the road to the beautiful brick stairways, it is a total package. All that said, it can get pretty busy during certain days of the week. It is an excellent location if you love and want to show off the Florida green in your photos. It is, by far, one of the top favorite Tampa Florida photography locations.

Indian Rocks Beach

Location Type: Beach
Address: 1700 Gulf Blvd, Indian Rocks Beach, FL 33785
Parking fee: $5

This beach is great for photo sessions. Between the beautiful sand and tall seagrass, there are many picture-perfect spots for a photo session. Indian Rocks Beach is significantly less busy with fewer people running around compared to other beaches in the area. Being less crowded makes sessions here feel very relaxed and calm compared to some other locations where there are people everywhere. My wife and I love this beach so much that it is our go-to vacation spot. There are many local and delicious restaurants around making it great to grab a fun local meal after a photo session.

Honeymoon Island

Location Type: Beach
Address: 1 Causeway Blvd, Dunedin, FL 34698
Parking fee: $5

I don’t know why, but I always seem to forget about Honeymoon Island in my initial recommendations to people looking for beach photography. I then catch myself and always send a follow-up email saying, “wait, wait, wait, here is one more amazing location to consider!” Consider this your follow up email 🙂 This beach is hands down one of the best beaches on this list. With picture-perfect white sand, captivating dark granite rocks that rest in the beautiful saltwater, all captured during or around sunset making a perfect Florida beach picture that you will love for a lifetime. With my ranting and raving out of the way, this beach can get a little more crowded, especially on the weekend from both people visiting the beach and other photoshoots occurring.

Downtown New Port Richey

Location Type: City
Address: Grand Blvd &, Bank St, New Port Richey, FL 34652
Parking fee: None

People always overlook downtown New Port Richey or Sims Park for photos. I do understand why, but those thoughts were based on this area a few years ago. The city has spent lots of time and money, making this area great. They took it from an old rundown, stale park, and ultimately torn down, reworked, rebuilt and updated it to have a very clean new feeling. All of the work really paid off, and now it makes for a great photography location. There is a massive sound stage, big beautiful trees, a river walk, and some boardwalks around the lake that makes for some adorable pictures. The downtown area is also great with some older buildings and unique walls.
