Belmar New Jersey
Photography Hot Spot Location
Home>Belmar, N.J. Photography Hot Spot
This location is a sunrise, sunset, and milky waters location photography hot spot. The New Jersey Shore offers many fishing piers along its coastline, and this is one of them. You will never get the same shot twice and can repeatedly return to this area for fishing pier photography. The New Jersey Skies blast colors during sunrise and sunset. In the morning, you can get a direct view of the sun, and in the evening, the colors will blast from the west.
Before you head over to the dock, stop just a few blocks away at Nourished by Nature, our new favorite place. Our owner and their owner have a lot in common; they nourish their bodies for health. Our owner, health fanatic that she is, is one of the healthiest people you will meet. She nourishes her body for health and does not eat for flavor. She is very well aware of everything that goes into her body and the benefit of each ingredient. She only eats organic.
Ok, back to photography, her other passion. You can pair this location up with Point Pleasant or another nearby photography hot spot during the summer months. The fishing pier and sunrise/sunset are pretty much for photography in Belmar if you want incredibly dynamic subject matter.
The only bags we use! That should say it all.
Where NOT to go. We went into 7-11 across the street from the pier to get a super large hot cup of coffee to take with us on our Belmar Pier Photography shoot, and we needed to use the bathroom. It was the dead of winter, and barely a soul around. We were denied access to the bathroom even though we explained it was pretty urgent.
I said, “Well, you just lost our business; I cannot buy a cup of coffee until I get rid of the two I just drank.” jokingly. He said, oh, well, that’s okay. He could care less.
So we got in our car and traveled several blocks south to the Dunkin Doughnuts, which allowed us full access to the bathroom and didn’t blink an eye. They said even in the peak season, all are welcome to use the bathroom, and you don’t even need to buy anything.
Please don’t use the seven-eleven even though it is across the street out of principal. Stop for coffee at Dunkin Donuts south of the location. We were then on the late side for our sunset photo shoot.
Daily badge sales begin with the Memorial Day weekend, continue on weekends only until the full season starts (the Monday of the third week of June) and then daily for the rest of the season.

Don’t forget that you can use a rain sleeve on your camera if it is raining. If it is bright and sunny, you want to use a low ISO such as 100.
If you are doing photography along with your ghost hunting on cloudy days, you can do running water or waterfall photography to avoid the glaring sun. You can also use an ND filter to get a long exposure for dramatic effects, even in the sunshine. If you ghost hunt indoors in abandoned places be careful!
