Top 5 Gold Coast Portrait Locations

Aren't we so lucky to live at the Gold Coast?!  This beautiful city of ours is such an awesome backdrop for portrait photography. We’re so spoilt with choice here!  Whether you’re into nature, greenery, urban settings or beaches, there’s a beautiful location that’s bound to compliment your branding.

My top 5 top locations for portrait photos on the Gold Coast:

 

1. The Spit | Seaworld Drive, Southport. Map here.

The Spit is hands down my favourite Gold Coast beach to shoot at!  Why?   Because you can capture so much diversity in one location.  There’s beautiful beach paths with greenery, long grass, there’s a rock wall, jetty, dunes with long grass and of course the beautiful ocean.

2. The Borrowed Nursery | Cronulla Aveue, Mermaid Beach. Map here.

I absolutely LOVE this location!  I love how clean and bright the white looks and the contrast of the peach coloured doors, adds such an awesome pop of colour in photos.

Hint, this location gets really direct sunlight right into late afternoon. So it’s always a last stop on a branding shoot for me!

4. Graffiti Lane | Scarborough Street Southport. (Near corner Nerang St, near ANZ bank) Map here.

This is a great location for anyone who loves bright, bold colours and wants to introduce an urban feel into their portraits / branding. There’s another great pink and blue wall that’s a couple of minutes down the road in Nerang Street.

5. Len Wort Park, Currumbin Map here.

This is one of my favourite Southern Gold Coast beaches to shoot at.  I love the greenery, sand dunes, ocean and at certain times of the year there’s a beautiful wall with blooming bougainvillea that I just can’t go past!
