10 Dope Places to Take Pictures near Phoenix

When Phoenix comes to mind, most of us associate it with a hot, barren Arizona, unlike anything northeast. Despite its proximity to the Sonoran Desert and temperatures that can exceed 110°F, Phoenix has quite a surprise under its belt. The canals that the original inhabitants of the Americas built made Phoenix an important center of crop production, and farming was the major profession associated with Phoenix up until the end of WW2. In simple words, you can define Phoenix as the little oasis in a big desert. Now home to many tech enterprises, Phoenix has plenty of iconic and spellbinding places to offer where you can go to enjoy nature, take stunning photos, and shoot creative content for your online community. So, let’s see the 10 most dope places to take pictures near Phoenix.

1. Explore the benefits of biophilic design

While modern architecture advocates for a minimalist and functional approach to the built environment, it also pushes people away from nature, thereby reducing the warmth and feelings associated with it. On the other hand, biophilia tends to reimagine spaces concerning the environment’s perspective. This small, jungle-themed space offers you a very similar experience. A range of wild and exotic plants infuses a serene environment inside the space, making it refreshing and relieving all of your stress. For content creators and environmental advocates, this place is an ideal spot in Phoenix for creating content that preaches to people the benefits of caring for the environment and living sustainably. The furniture inside this Peerspace bookable loft is also minimalist to make use of space effectively.
