Christa Nicole Photography’s Location Guide

r016Back in 2013, I began compiling a location guide of past shoots. I was thinking that when I use Google to see what locations are like for photography, having it all in one page would be SO helpful for inspiration. I like to take time to explore the areas I will be using in photos, and sometimes it’s hard to find the time to get there in person, but looking at the work of other photographers helps me out. For the Greater Victoria Area, I have arranged it more or less as if you were driving into town from the Westshore, around downtown and then up to Sidney. Sort of 🙂 Have fun following along, and I hope you gather some inspiration for your next session!
