There are fantastic photographic opportunities in and around Buffalo, some world famous and others less known. While Iceland, New Zealand, Italy, Greece, and Hawaii are just a few of the destinations I would like to bring my camera, this list is comprised of locations within a 45 minute drive.
This iconic location can be viewed from either side of the border, maybe just maybe Canada has a better view, but my shots are from the U.S. side. Be prepared to encounter crowds, as it is a popular tourist destination.
Our Lady of Victory Basilica
The attention to detail inside and out offer the opportunity to capture fantastic imagery.
Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens
Great for any flower/macro photography fan
Gallagher Pier/Grain Elevators
For sunsets over the water
Tucked away next to the Coast Guard Station you can find a small outdoor park focused on the history of Buffalo lighthouses
Offers a variety of looks depending on the water levels. In addition to the waterfall, Akron Falls is located in an expansive park offering a variety of other photographic opportunities.
Architecture throughout Buffalo
Whether you appreciate modern or classical design, take a stroll through the city. As you may be able to tell I prefer the older buildings.
