  • 1. CN Tower
    CN Tower, Toronto, Ontario

    The tallest free standing structure in the world, pretty much speaks for itself. There are many ways to photograph the CN Tower from far away to being right there. It is probably the number one tourist attraction in the city and you really can't miss it!

  • 2. Flatiron Building
    Flatiron Building, Toronto, Ontario

    The Flatiron Building, with it's unique shape and look, has been a landmark in Toronto since the late 1800's. For tourists interested in architecture and photographing interesting buildings, this is a must.

  • 3. Casa Loma
    Casa Loma, Toronto, Ontario

    It's hard to imagine this enormous structure was built as a home for a regular family. Casa Lamo, is a gorgeous castle like building that is also a must for the amateur or professional photographer. It was built in the early 1900's by Sir Henry Pellatt. However, sadly due to circumstances beyond his control he wasn't able to stay in his home very long. On a brighter note, it is a wonderful place to bring the family for a tour. And there are some wonderful photographic opportunities both inside the castle, and in the beautiful surrounding grounds and gardens.

  • 4. Roy Thomson Hall
    Roy Thomson Hall, Toronto, Ontario

    You can't help but notice this unique building in downtown Toronto. And not only is it an interesting structure from an architectural point, it is also a wonderful concert venue.

  • 5. Lake Ontario
    Lake Ontario, Toronto, Ontario

    Whether you are at the Toronto Islands or walking along the path, there are so many wonderful areas of Lake Ontario, to take photos. Regardless of which season you happen to be in Toronto, try not to miss the opportunity to get some pictures with the lake in the background. A perfect photo of Toronto has the lake, the city buildings and CN Tower in the background ...it makes for stunning shots. Also, night shots are equally as beautiful.

  • 6. CNE

    The CNE grounds has some wonderful old structures, that also will make the visiting photographer happy. It has been a landmark in Toronto for well over a hundred years. And although,the CNE is open for just under a month every year, it is worth a visit to be able to get some photographs of the surrounding architecture.

  • 7. Old City Hall
    Old City Hall, Toronto, Ontario

    The Old City Hall, is a beautiful building in downtown Toronto that has been a landmark in Toronto for over a hundred years. I just can't imagine Toronto without this historical building. It came close to being demolished at one point, and thankfully a group of concerned people caused enough attention to save it. It is now a National Historic Site and it deserves that honour.

  • 8. New City Hall
    New City Hall, Toronto, Ontario

    Right around the corner from Toronto's Old City Hall is Toronto's New City Hall. It is so interesting to see the very different architecture between the Old City Hall and the New City Hall. The New City Hall is also a unique building, with actually two identical structures facing each other. Outside the City Hall are flags from all over the world and a pond which turns into a lovely skating rink in the winter months.

  • 9. Roger's Centre

    The Roger's Centre, is located very close to the CN Tower, in Toronto. It is another landmark structure in the city. Both during the daylight and evening hours, the Roger's Centre, which was incidentally formerly known as the Skydome, is a great background for photographs.
