Photography Locations Lethbridge

Popular Photography Locations Lethbridge

Often I am asked about photography locations in Lethbridge.  Over the years I found many public or semi private locations that you can use without booking or paying. Then lately I started to noticed that a lot are starting to charge.  As one person said to me.  “We did let photographers use our space but they became to demanding so now we will regulate it and charge”. 

In the following list I have contacted each one to check on any requirements.  I am not including private locations as this changes so fast. I have kept it to ones that most clients ask about. 

If you have or find a location that is not on the list please let me know.

When using any location please be a professional. 

The actions of a few bad apples rubs off on ALL OF US! If we keep getting banned soon we will be without some of the great spots we have come to love.

Semi or full nudity

I have had a couple mentions from locations about nudity and questionable shoots.  The general response to this is that all these locations are public places and photographers need to respect that.   No nudity is acceptable if the location is open.  A couple places suggested that if you require nudity that you should book the entire place off hours.  Of course the cost is substantially higher.
