These hand-picked Naples Florida best photography Spots are all close together so you should be able to shoot them all in one day. I visit Naples often to catch a nice golden sunset over the west coast.
Naples Florida is a beautiful place located on the west coast of Florida. When I want to get out of Miamis hustle and bustle, I take a 2-hour drive to Naples. Here I find peace and I the sunsets are to die for. Here is my photo Gallery from Naples.
Living in Miami, I usually have to get up at 5 am to catch the sunrise. However, the sunsets in Miami are not as nice as they are on the west coast. It’s always great to catch a sunset knowing I do not have to be up at 5am.
The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon with a Nikon 14-24mm a Nikon 24-85mm a Nikon 70-200. A MeFOTO tripod is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.
Naples Florida Best Photography Spots
1. Old Pilings. Located North of the Naples Pier, these old pilings work well to create interesting compositions over the Gulf of Mexico. A wide angle lens is a must.
2. Naples Pier. This is the most popular and one of the coolest piers on the west coast of Florida. A must on your visit to Naples. A wide angle and or a zoom lens will work fine.
3. Naples City Dock. This is a great place to walk around and get some great shots of the actual dock, the boats, and the fisherman all around. A zoom lens is perfect.

I shot this photos one week before Hurricane Irma hit Naples Florida. We had no idea the devastation that Hurricane Irma would leave, we knew it was coming, but we did not know it was going to hit the West Coast of Florida.
I have been to Naples million time, however, this time felt different, it felt special. The day started by riding airboats in the Everglades national park, and it ended up at the beautiful Naples Pier.
The photography gods were with us that evening, making sure we captured the perfect sunset before the hurricane hit.
Every time I get the chance to go to the West Coast of Florida to shoot the sunset I take it. This is one of my favorite spots on the coast, it is Naples pier. It is an really cool place to photograph of just watch the sunset.
I can’t think of a time when I shot a bad photo here. This was on a very overcast day, it looked like it was going to start pouring, so everyone left the beach. I had the entire place to my self, it was perfect.
I shot this with a 14-24mm Lens here are my settings:
244 seconds at f/22 ISO 50 on my Nikon D800 (no filters)
A couple weeks ago some friends and I drove up to Naples Florida to watch the sunset. We kind of go stuck at my house watching Dumb and Dumber so we ended up leaving late. By the time we go to Naples the sun was already setting, and by the time we got our cameras out the sun was gone.
We were bummed out for about 2 minutes until the hues in the sky stared to change to this really nice golden yellow, then it was all good again. Lesson learned, no funny movies before a mini road trip….
5 Second Exposure f/18 ISO50 200mm
Ahh Naples Florida, a quiet little town away from the hustle and bustle. I love driving up to Naples from time to time. Its on the West Coast of Florida on the Gulf side so I am able to catch incredible sunsets here. I live in the East coast of Florida so getting up at 5 am to get a sunrise is hard, but worth it when I can actually accomplish it. I prefer sunsets tho, and Naples has them all, not only that but the 2 hr adventure driving through the Everglades is always lots of fun.
I shot this right after the sun had set, the sky turned orange and purple and I couldn’t get enough.
My settings: 90 seconds, F22 ISO 50, I shot it with my 14-24mm lens with out a filter, thats why I had to bring my ISO to the lowest setting and close my aperture quite a bit.
