Photo Locations: Greater Portland, Maine

Some popular locations in the greater Portland Area for photos. Keep in mind that these are meant to be a guide for backdrops only. Different seasons, weather conditions and lighting due to time of year and time of day lead to very different ascetics in photographs that won't necessarily be able to be re-created.



Old Port, Portland in Winter

Some winter scenes around Portland that I found online to give you a feel for how it *could be depending on the snow fall of the season. Note, a lot of these are taken at blue hour.






Going into cafes/pubs, etc can add a nice authenticity to images.






Kettle Cove: Cape Elizabeth

In addition to the rocky seaside, Kettle Cove has some pretty wooded trails.

From the Internet on a very wintry day:




4, Portland Head

Portland Head and Fort Williams State Park also offer more interesting locations on the property including rugged shoreline, wooded areas, and cool stone ruins not shown here.







Two Lights State Park: Cape Elizabeth

You'd need to be in the treaking frame of mind for this location.

I've not personally shot here but admired the dream like look. Again, in the winter this would be a boots on, walking in the snow type of session.
