How to Have the Perfect Amalfi Coast Photoshoot
We asked our very own Amalfi Coast photographers, how do you have a great shoot with all the crowds that flood Positano and the Amalfi Coast each and every day?
Amalfi photoshoot perfection
The colorful stacked houses on the cliff, the smell of lemoncello, and sparkling seas bring the crowds, so how do you get that perfect shot?
Timing is everything
It is worth staying overnight in the Amalfi Coast, that way you can soak up the hours that the day trippers aren’t there. Rise and shine for beautiful sunrise photos, or wait until Blue Hour, which is that twilight hour when the city lights just start to turn on. Avoid anything after 10am, or before 5pm so you can have a fun shoot experience.
Go by boat!
Rent a boat for an hour and get some amazing photos with views of all of the coast line in the backdrop. Your shoot can start at the dock, enjoy a quick boat ride to another photo spot on the coast and then ride back in about 1.5 hours.
Check out Capri
If you really want to splurge, you can stay on Capri and get photos with zero crowds before the ferries arrive and after the ferries leave. If you want to do your shoot on Capri in a day trip, you’ll find a bit of a bottleneck situation when departing your ferry, but once you have made it it is easy to escape the crowds by walking to Anacapri and beyond or towards the Villa Jovis on the other point. Go on a weekday such as Tuesday or Wednesday to avoid crowds.
Head to Villa Cimbrone in Rovello
This villa is gorgeous, and has a manageable amount of people for your shoot. Picture wisteria arches, terraces with views of the town, and a beautiful setting for your shoot.
