Here is post of some of my favorite locations to photograph in Richmond. These locations are all fun because they all have an urban feel and there are so many individual locations within each.

 

Scott's Addition

Scott's Addition is an industrial warehouse district that has had a recent revitalization. A few breweries, restaurants, and apartments have popped up. Many think this is going to be the new "hot spot" of Richmond! This location is great if you want to have a beer at a brewery after your shoot. Take your time and walk around all of the unique old buildings.

Libby Hill Park

This location is best when there are leaves on the trees or if it is a cloudy day. Otherwise it may be too sunny! You have a great view of Tobacco Row and the city skyline. There are also a lot of benches, a fountain, and a really cool old tree that is growing into the sidewalk.

Monument Ave

Starting with the Robert E. Lee Memorial, Monument Avenue has turned into a grand street made of cobblestone with large historic homes. This is the perfect location if you want your shoot to have a historic Richmond feel.

The Canal Walk

Growing up in Richmond, I really think I visited the canal walk 4 times during field trips. This locations is a huge part of our history in America. There is the canal itself, monuments, old buildings, graffiti, restaurants, tall grass, and so much more. You can spend a lot of time at this location as you go from the heart of our city out towards Brown's Island.

Legend Brewery/Manchester

Just like Scott's Addition, this location is an industrial area that is being revitalized. There are working warehouses mixed with warehouses that have been turned into apartments. This area of town has so many cool little nooks against the old brick buildings plus a very nice view of the skyline. Out of all of these locations, this is my personal favorite.
