I have been itching to write this blog post about my favourite photo shoot locations in Stockholm!
It started in my mind when I was searching for different places to go shooting with my son. Although Stockholm is absolutely beautiful and there’s so many things to see and visit, I could not find a good, clear article about locations for a photo shoot. Places like Gamla Stan , Stadshuset and so on are all pretty but too touristy for my liking, so it had to be something different. A Stockholm hidden gem that only locals really know of, which meant less people around and more freedom for shooting!
So here I am on a quest to explore and find as many unique sightings one can visit and shoot a pretty spectacular image, too.
Mäster Mikaels Gata
Master Michaels Street is in the eastern part of the South Hills (Södermalm) in Stockholm. It stretches from St. Catherine’s Church (Katarina Kyrka) to Renstiernasgatan, via Cornelius Park at Glasswork’s Cliff (Glasbruks klippan).
The origin of the neighborhood’s name
“Mäster Mikael” has got its name from Michael Reissuer, the city executioner: “mäster” was a common Swedish title for the executioner. Master Michael was – Masterman, executioner and supervises executioner helpers
and rascals during the period 1635 – 1650.
The beautiful Tranebergsbron (The Traneberg Bridge) is a double arch bridge in central Stockholm, Sweden. Stretching over the strait Tranebergssund it connects the major island Kungsholmen to the western suburb Bromma. It carries a road and metro tracks.
The very first version of this bridge was envisioned by Gustav III, and created in 1787, to create a better route between the city and his little palace in Drottningholm. It is a amazing location for stunning photography, with the huge concrete pillars.
It’s the highest natural setting in Stockholm! And it is also one of my personal favourites because of the relaxed vibe. The view of Riddarholmen and the city hall is breathtaking, and there are a bunch of photo opportunities on the way as well. Be very very careful on the rocks tough!
Even during the summers, Skinnarviksberget is a perfect place for anyone who wants to get away from the crowded touristy places and blend in with the locals. It is also a great place to create timelapse videos.
The busy city seems so far away on top of the beautiful hill in Odenplan. Observatorielunden is a green oasis only a very short walk away from Drottninggatan. Exactly as the name implies, there is an observatory in the beautiful park that dates back to the 1700s.
