5 Toronto Spots to Get the Best Instagram Shots

Figuring out what to post next on your Instagram while nailing that right ‘AESTHETIC’ can be challenging. Seriously, take it from someone like me, who has done professional modelling and has also just helped out with my friends’ photography projects.

I’m all for self-love, so go ahead and post another 10 of the same selfies in your room if you wish, but wouldn’t you rather take advantage of Ryerson’s great location in downtown Toronto?

Here are five locations that I’ve found to give the most Instagram-worthy pictures:

1. Atrium

Atrium is located mere steps away from Ryerson and Yonge-Dundas Square. When inside this retail and office complex, you can see the stunning modern architecture by just looking up.

2. June Callwood Park

The June Callwood Park (often referred to as the Pink Park) features geometric pink patterns dotted with native Canadian trees. Getting the right colours in your outfit can really emphasize the otherworldly nature of this environment.

3. Chinatown

The neon lights of Chinatown provide a completely different atmosphere from what many are used to seeing in downtown Toronto. Come here at night to get those silhouette shots.

4. Don Valley Brick Works

The Don Valley Brick Works (often referred to as the Evergreen Brick Works) operated for almost a century as a brickwork factory. A restoration project by Evergreen converted the surrounding quarry into a city park and the old factory was opened as sustainable community centre. Take your pick of what you want in your pic because this place has everything from vibrant community events to the Lower Don ravine below.

5. Aga Khan Museum

The Aga Khan Museum is dedicated to showcasing Islamic artwork and history. However, it’s the exterior of this building that can make for some truly dramatic shots.

There you have it; five Toronto spots to step up your Instagram shots! I hope everyone now knows a few more places in Toronto to take pictures outside the touristy clichés of Nathan Phillips Square and Graffiti Alley. Have fun Instagramming!
