Iran is a country of endless photo opportunities. The diversity of attractions, lack of tourists and open people always happy to pose for the camera make it a perfect photography destination.

 1.Masuleh village.

Best for stunning landscapes.

Tip: go off-season. The city looks magical in fog, and absence of tourists also gives a

great chance to take some great shots of locals.
 2.Traditional houses in Kashan.

Best for: interiors photography and panoramic city landscapes.

Tip: go late afternoon – beautiful window glass work means you will be able to photograph stunning

colourful rays of light in the room. Don’t forget to ask to get to the rooftop: the

view of evening Kashan is breathtaking. 10 best photography spots in Iran2.jpg

 3.Abyaneh settlement.

Best for: portrait photography.

Tip: allocate at least few hours to wander around. People here are not many, especially

in the more beautiful, older part of the town – but once spotted they make a great picture. Traditionally dressed old women in rose-patterned clothes against the background of red

buildings provide an excellent photo opportunity.

 4.Esfahan center.

Best for: architectural shots. Imam Square is one of the most beautiful squares in the

world, combining in one place mosques, palaces, bazaar and fountains. The buildings

are beautiful at day time with exquisite blue mosaics ceilings, impressive facades and

delicate artwork.

Tip: don’t forget to wander around bazaar – it gives a fair amount of great photo

opportunities. For a truly great picture – come after the sunset. Long exposures at

Imam Square make a truly magical shot: colorful passages and arcs, majestic domes

and soft light of the fountains uniquely interlace to produce a unique, one-of-a-kind



 5.Tehran traffic.

Best for: city shots.

Tip: try not to get killed in the process. Traffic in Iran is incredible – colorful taxis,

motorbikes and crowds of people all mixed up together provide an interesting few but

can also be very quite dangerous and unpredictable. 10 best photography spots in Iran Taxi.jpg

 6.US Den of Espionage.

Best for: unique anti-US graffiti.

Tip: come late afternoon when streets are the busiest – it will provide a chance to get the

shots of people with walls as a background. 10 best photography spots in Iran 6.jpg

 7.Tehran Grand Bazaar.

Best for: portrait photography.

Tip: no place is better fitted to take portrait shots as Grand Bazaar. 10 kilometers of

corridors ensure plenty of beautiful photos. Don’t leave too early: staying after closing

hours means a chance for unique pictures of vendors after work and an opportunity to

see bazaar in a unique, unusual light. 10 best photography spots in Iran7.jpg
 8.Domes of bazaar in Tabriz.

Best for: architectural shots.

Tip: wander around domes and make your way to the one where carpets are sold. Rare sunrays and red colour of the carpets add a magical touch to the picture. 10 best photography spots in Iran 8.jpg
 9.Kandovan village.

Best for: landscapes.

Tip: come in the morning to avoid crowds and get best shots of local Hobbitland. People here are among a rare few in Iran who are not very eager to pose for pictures – but stunning photos of local buildings will surely compensate for that. 10 best photography spots in Iran9.jpg
 10.Local celebrations.

Best for: portrait photography.

Tip: try to catch one of the unique Iranian celebrations. Most exotic: religious Ashura in November, when thousands of people in black are gathered to commemorate the death of Huseyn. holiday you could never imagine Ashura6.jpg
