Top Spots for Photo Ops in Metro Detroit
My name is Romney Funderburg, I’m a double major in Drawing/ Photography in my 4th year at Wayne State University, and a freelance photographer since Spring 2018. I like to take photos of people, places, and shoes. I also like to sleep whenever I get the chance.
I wouldn’t consider myself an expert, but I’m always trying to scout for new locations for future photo shoots, and having my go to spots. Whether you just entered the realm of photography or have been in the game for a while, I hope this list can be informative!
Z Park Garage A
Z Park Garage A - Library Street, Detroit MI
With a different mural on each floor, and a killer view of Downtown Detroit, this is a top spot for good portraits and the city! TIP: A lot of parking lot structures on the top floor have great views of the city!
Eastern Market - Russell Street, Detroit MI
Similar to the Z Lot, there is a plethora of murals, and simplistic buildings, to have a variety of environments. Also, there is rarely traffic except on Market days and events going on, you can shoot in the street. And, with the Murals in the Market campaign every year, there is always something new!
