Ideas for Halloween Photography

Halloween is nearly here and it's time to hang up the cobwebs, carve pumpkins, and stock up on unreasonable amounts of candy.


It's also time to get your camera ready for some creative and spooky photos.


Take a look at some of our ideas for some fun Halloween shots.


Pumpkins Part One


Of course, we have to start with Pumpkins. A great, simple shoot idea would be to photograph your family pumpkin picking!

Pumpkins Part Two


When you've picked the perfect pumpkins and gotten them home, the next step is to carve your pumpkins. Why not photograph the process?

Get some Halloween decorations for the background and photograph your family and friends carving pumpkins and getting into the spooky spirit.


Pumpkins Part Three


Naturally, the next photo idea is your finished pumpkins on Halloween night.


Whether you put a candle inside or a smoke prop, you can create some amazing spooky photos with your carved pumpkins.

Horror Scenes


Create a terrifying story with your images by dressing people up as zombies and picture the world ravaged by the undead, or bring mythical creatures to life.

Yes, we know this next one isn't a horror scene, but Halloween doesn't always have to leave us terrified. People can dress up however they want October 31st.

Trick or Treat


It's time to get the kids dressed up to knock on your neighbours doors for treats. Take your camera and photograph the memories, the spooky scene, and their cool costumes.
