Best Photography Spots in Orlando Florida can be found all over the place. When you think Orlando, you think of Disneyworld, Universal, and NASA. Orlando is full of awesome theme parks that would take you an entire summer to visit them all.
I have put together a list of the best photography spots in Orlando Florida. As a photographer, no matter where I go, I am always looking for the best photography spots no matter where I go even if it’s theme parks. From Disneyworld to NASA, there are some real gems in Orlando that cannot be overlooked.
Are you looking for images of Orlando and its surrounding areas for one of your projects? Check out my Orlando library. They are all available for licensing.
Are you are looking for amazing skies for your images? Check out my vast library of EPIC sky overlays you can use to create award-winning photos.
The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon D800 with a Nikon 14-24mm and a Nikon 24-85mm. A MeFOTO tripod and a wide angle is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.
Best Photography Spots in Orlando Florida
1. Disneyworld. Disneyworld is an incredible place, however, it gets better once the sun sets and the fireworks start. Best time to shoot is at night during the fireworks. I suggest a zoom lens and a baby tripod.
2. Harry Potter’s Castle. The castle is incredible, you will have a blast just walking around photographing this place. It is just epic. I recommend a wide angle lens. Best time to soot is at dusk.
3. JFK Space Center, NASA. One of the coolest places to go explore in Orlando for sure. NASA has incredible sights, endless possibilities where your imagination will go wild. Atlantis is one of them. A wide angle lens is a must.
4. Florida Polytechnic University. Focusing on careers in advanced fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava was selected to design the campus’ first building. A must on your visit Orlando.
5. Orlando’s eye. This is a massive Ferris wheel that looks just like the London Eye. It’s a cool spot to photograph. Best time to shoot is at dusk. Bring your Wide Angle Lens.
6. Epcot. Have you ever traveled around the world? This is the place to do it. There are 11 countries to visit and lots of photos to be taken. Below are my favorites. A tripod and a wide angle are a must. Best times to shoot is at dusk.
7. China Pavilion. For sure one of the coolest spots to photograph when you are inside Epcot. Bring a wide angle lens. Best time to shoot is anytime.
8. Venice Italy Epcot. If you have ever been to the real place you will instantly get transported when you visit the Italy Pavilion.
9. Japan. Can you see the stars? Japan is awesome. Best time to shoot is at night. I shot this with my 24-85mm lens. A tripod is a must.
10. Morocco. When in Morocco? Exactly, take a lot of photos. A wide angle is a must. This place is packed, I recommend waiting until dark to take photos.
11. Universal Orlando. Whether you are here for the rides or just to hang out, make sure you bring your camera. Everywhere you look is worthy of a photo.

Florida Polytechnic University an epic architectural feat. It is no secret that I have a bit of an obsession with architecture, once I saw a photo of this place I wanted to visit right away. Lucky for me the opportunity presented itself and there I was. Once I arrived, I was intrigued by the design, it looks like a massive spacecraft laying in the middle of nowhere. Lucky for me there was no-one around and I had the entire place to my self, inside and outside.
Florida Poly was established on April 20, 2012, and it is located in Lakeland Florida, between Orlando and Tampa Florida. It focuses on careers in advanced fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava was selected to design the campus’ first building.
Upon its arrival, I was stunned by what I saw. The Florida Polytechnic University looks like a spaceship that just landed from outer space. The closer you get to it, the better it looks. As I approached the front door, my jaw began to drop. It is such a cool building, I stood there in awe for a few minutes before picking up my camera to start taking photos.
If you ever get a chance to visit, stop by you will not be disappointed.

It’s Friday!!!! What an insane week I have had, started off with the amazing Miami Beach Photography Club (organized and created by yours truly) and ended up at the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando Florida. OMG what an amazing week and series of events. Where do I even begin???? I suppose I will post photos and tell you about it photo by photo, for now here is this one.
The Atlantis at Kennedy Space Center, I mean WOW. How can I descrive to you what this thing looks like? I really can’t, anything I say will not do it justice. I have been wanting to see this for a very long time and I finally got to see it inches from my face. What an unbelievable experience. If you are reading this, you absolutely have to put this on your bucket list. When I first saw it I got tears on my eyes, this thing is an amazing human accomplishment and for it to be open to the public for everyone to admire you have to take full advantage of it. I spent about 3 hrs admiring this thing letting my imagination take me away, it is so incredible that I am going back in the near future to check it out again, thats how cool this is.
A big massive thank you to the Kennedy Space Center for putting this up for the world to see. One of the most amazing things I have ever seen.
I have so many trips infront of me, so many more memories to make, smiles over ice-cream and some crazy road trips ahead. Here is whats coming in the next couple months in chronological order: West-coast: Reno NV, SF for Outside Lands, Black Rock City for Burning Man, come back to Miami chill out for a week or so and head out to the East Coast to Boston, catch a plane to Iceland and kik it with my crazy friend in a van driving around looking for the Northern Lights. Shortly after I head down to Ecuador, I might squeeze more trips in-between but for now thats whats on the books. I will keep you posted. If you are going to be at any of those places and want to hook up for a beer, shoot me a message. Life is short peeps get busy!!! Click on pic to enlarge. (more photos coming soon)
