10 Photo Spots in Miami for Inspired Photographers in 2023

As a local photographer living in South Florida. Here are ten free or affordable photo spots in Miami for inspired photographers. These outdoor/public locations for great for models, couples, and families.

Wynwood, 2019, Capture & Embrace by Jisseth, CEBYJISSETH

1. Wynwood Walls

Wynwood is located near Miami Design District. It is a collection of giant wall murals painted by various artists from around the world. While Wynwood Walls is a trendy tourist spot. I recommend getting there early, especially on weekdays.

2. Lifeguard Stands of Miami Beach and South Beach

The lifeguard stands on Miami Beach, and South Beach is ironic. Not all lifeguard stands are the same. Some are recently remodeled. My tip is to take photos at Miami Beach. Avoid going to South Beach. It is too crowded.

3. Museum Garage

It is a seven-story garage with innovative art, design, and architecture. The Museum Garage is located in the Miami Design District. It is known to be the colorful parking garage in Miami. Perfect for Instagram photos.

4. Greynolds Park

Graynolds Park is located in North Miami Beach. There are a few limestone rock structures and bridges, which are excellent for exploring and portraits. If you are into wildlife photography, there are qualities of mangrove forests and wildlife animals like birds. Once I saw a young gray fox, I thought I was out of my mind. Luckily, the person next to me witnessed it, and we both laughed. However, it isn't allowed if you want to shoot on location with equipment and backdrops. I tried to once and was asked for a photographer permit.

5. Cape Florida Lighthouse

Cape Florida Lighthouse is one of the oldest lighthouses in Florida. Built-in 1825. It is a beautiful backdrop for your photos; you can climb the stairs. This might not be for you if you're claustrophobic or fear heights. Walking the path near the lighthouse will lead you to a cute old cottage.

6. Matheson Hammock Park

One of my favorite locations to shoot. It is a lovely scenic beach and park. It is a pristine beach which makes it perfect for photos. I do recommend coming on the weekday. During the weekend, this park gets overcrowded.

7. Ingraham Park

This is a small park located in Coral Gables. The park's centerpiece is a beautiful fountain inspired by the Palace of Alhambra in Granada, Spain. This is great for formal portraits like engagements and quinceaneras.

8. The Berry Farm

The Berry farm is a farmer's market located in Homestead. It is known for the sunflower field. Just keep in mind that the sunflower season is from March to November. If you decide to visit later in the year, the sunflowers would look less lively.

9. TY Topeekeegee Yugnee Park

Topeekeegee Yugnee is not only a long name to pronounce but also located in Hollywood, but it's worth it. It's one of the biggest parks I have ever been to in South Florida, but there is various shooting spot with shades. The white gazebo used for couples and weddings is my favorite thing about this park.

10. Dania Beach Pier

Yes, I know Dania beach pier is part of Broward. The location where you want to take photos is under the pier. It is excellent for couple's portraits.
