Photography Location Guide: Deception Bay

North Brisbane Perfect morning location spot – Deception Bay Dog Beach

The next in our series series of locations guides, designed to give you the low-down on a few of my favourite locations to shoot, from the sand to the studio and in between.  Previously, I posted about Lake Eden (you can find the link to that blog post here), North Lakes Woodlands (you can find the link to that blog post here), Brisbane City Botanic Gardens (you can find the link to that one here!), and Crest Park at Bribie Island (that link is here), and today I’ve got another beachy location to share.

This location is ideal for morning sessions between 8am and 10am depending on the time of year. There is a nice tree lined area just up the top of the car park, then we head down to the mangrove trees which give a total different look, then finish on the beach if the tide is out.. the beach is great fun for the kids and we can get some more natural and relaxed photos there.

There are toilets across the road from the beach which is good sometimes with little ones. The only thing to be aware of is the dogs that are sometimes on the beach, so it is something to be mindful of. All in all it is a great morning option for portraits.
