Here are some of Birmingham's Top Places for Photographers to Visit!
1. Railroad Park - Railroad Park is a 19 acre green space in downtown Birmingham that celebrates the industrial and artistic heritage of our great city. Situated along 1st Avenue South, between 14th and 18th Streets, the park is a joint effort between the City of Birmingham and the Railroad Park Foundation. Hailed as "Birmingham's Living Room," Railroad Park provides a historically rich venue for local recreation, family activities, concerts, and cultural events, while connecting Birmingham's downtown area with Southside and UAB's campus.
2. Morris Avenue - A historic street in Downtown Birmingham offers landscapes, backdrops, and open areas. Here the cobblestone street, the brick buildings, nearby railroad tracks and the 105-year-old Peanut Depot, provides ideal backdrops for photos. Plus, there is not a lot of traffic on the road.
3. Botanical Gardens - Probably one of my favorite places to go! Springtime flowers and breeze will make you fall in love with this place. Open 365 days a year with free admission, the Botanical Gardens is Alabama's Largest living museum.
4. Sloss Furnace - A national historic landmark, Sloss Furnace is home to preserving the Southern Industrial History. Great for rustic and vintage shoots.
5. Vulcan Park & Museum - What better way to experience Birmingham than atop one of its tallest structures in the city? Vulcan Park is home to the Vulcan Statue and Museum. The Roman god of fire and forge, watches over all of Birmingham as a symbol of the city’s iron origins–and the ever-present spark of its indomitable spirit.
6. Peavine Falls - Comfortably situated in Oak Mountain State Park, Peavine Falls is a 65 foot tall spring fed waterfall.
