Vienna has a lot to offer for an architectural photographer. Numerous historical buildings, beautiful parks and even modern architecture and skyscrapers.



What I really like is that there are no restrictions like in other European cities. You can use your tripod confidently everywhere and need not be worried about security guys. One exception is Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens. You can shoot there, but only for private reason. So, try not to look too professional! The worst thing that can happen is that they forbid to use a tripod, but I’ve never experienced that.



To avoid people in my frames, I prefer to shoot early morning, before sunrise and for about 2 hours after sunrise, depending on the time of the year and the weather. Alternatively shoot at blue hour in the evening, when the buildings are illuminated.
