Photos in Tenerife

Reveals the most photogenic side of the island

An island that knows how to pose

Are you a photography enthusiast? You are in luck. Tenerife, with its diverse landscape and natural peculiarities, is a privileged setting to shoot your camera over and over again. So, if you’re thinking of shooting a lot of photos in Tenerife, get your eye and finger ready; you couldn’t have made a better choice.

Tenerife hosts a million different motifs under a unique light.

There are plenty of places to take pictures in Tenerife, although in many occasions the place or the motif is, as you probably know, very malleable in the hands and the lens of the photographer. From the natural wonders of the Teide or the coastline to the more everyday charms of the midlands, passing through urban settings or tourist enclaves, any place is good for the eye that knows how to look and find the perfect photo.

In any case, there are certain aspects in which Tenerife photos become something special. Light has a lot to do with it. The pristine Canarian sky offers an unparalleled luminosity, for which many professionals yearn. Night photography deserves a separate chapter, when the skies of Tenerife are revealed in all their splendor.

Here are some references related to the world of photography in Tenerife: privileged locations, stores, exhibition spaces, unmissable appointments, in short, everything you may need during your stay to equip yourself perfectly or to immerse yourself in the Tenerife photographic universe.

Photos in Tenerife North

Taking pictures of Tenerife north is a real privilege And you will also have at hand a rich cultural offer to inspire you.

Discover Experience. If you are looking for a company specialized in showing the starry skies of the island to visitors, this is it. Installed in Los Realejos, they will help you take the best photos in Tenerife with their guided tours specialized in astro-tourism and, in addition, you will learn a lot about astronomy in a very complete activity, very didactic and at the same time of leisure, one of those that enchant all kinds of public.

Tenerife Espacio de las Artes. We cannot fail to mention one of the most active cultural centers of the island in terms of photography. It houses the Tenerife Island Photography Center and holds, among numerous other exhibitions, the Tenerife International Photography Festival (the prestigious Fotonoviembre). The avant-garde building, attractive in itself, is located in the heart of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Percy Photography. Also located in Santa Cruz, Percy is one of those old-fashioned photo stores (the house was founded in 1950) that know how to satisfy their customers whatever they need.

Photos in Tenerife South

The photos in southern Tenerife are bright and warm by nature, and transmit all the life that bustles from Los Gigantes to Güímar, passing by the Teide.

Teide National Park. An obligatory reference of world-wide rank as far as night photography is concerned; you can’t afford to miss it if you are an amateur. The astronomical observatory of Izaña (at an altitude of 2,400 meters), the Guajara mountain, the park’s viewpoints (there is a self-guided astro-tourist route) or even the vicinity of the Parador are some of the privileged sites.

Tenerife Excursions. We bring you this reference in case you want to get into the tempestuous world of underwater photography… without getting wet! The submarine safaris of this company with headquarters in Marina San Miguel (Amarilla) will allow you to take unparalleled photos in Tenerife. Again, two experiences in one; it’s not every day you take a submarine ride, and it’s not every day you get to take photos like these….

Photo Teide. Speaking of photo stores, Adeje (Tenerife south) has a complete offer to get the material you are missing, print or even hire professional services. In the case of Foto Teide, in addition to their long experience in the sector, they can offer you from their subsidiary Teidecopter aerial photography services thanks to their fleet of drones, perfectly equipped.

Whether we are talking about portrait or landscape, underwater or traditional black and white photography, Tenerife at night or aerial photos, Tenerife has all the potential for any kind of photographer, whatever his style and skills, to perform as such. Tenerife is an infinite photographic territory.

Be sure to include your favorite camera in your luggage.A couple of lenses and several memory cards (or film, if you’re old school), and a tripod won’t come in handy either… You’ll need all that to capture the lunar landscapes, the humid forests, the splendid twilights and the everyday scenes you’ll see all over the island.

In addition, at the same time you can visit a theme park, go shopping, go horse back riding or play golf. Tenerife is many islands in one, and you and your camera will be there to immortalize them all. Let your instinct guide you and put into practice all the technical arts you know; the result will be spectacular.
