What are great places in BGC to take photographs in?

- The Heart of God’s Country: A mural that many millennials will find pleasing to the eye.
- Unit 27: A café during the day and bar at night that has a stunning brick and lights aesthetic.
The reason why many people choose to buy a condo for sale in the Fort is because it’s just… so… beautiful. That being said, the city is the best place to take your friends out and take some awesome Instagram pictures to show off to your friends how epic your OOTD is. So grab your smartphones and get on the bus to the Fort; it’s time to take some artistic flat lays and blogger poses. But before that:
First Things First: Photography Rules
The rules of BGC regarding photography are a little unclear. Even though it’s marketed to be a photo-friendly city, there are a few less-marketed rules that you have to know before freely taking pictures around the city.
One of them is the “photo-friendly”-ness of BGC is for your personal use. So anything professionally-done, like commercial shoots, pre-nuptials, and other similar photo/video shoots need permits. To get one, you need to contact the Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation (818-3601 loc. 3109).
Another rule is that taking photos and videos of some specific buildings is not allowed for security reasons. So, whether it’s personal or professional, you may need to ask permission from the management of these buildings.
Now that you that, it’s time to take some Instagram pictures!
Sunnies is no longer just an eyewear brand; now, it’s also a café! The interior is branded just like their eyewear products and stores, so you can imagine it’s just as aesthetic. But, instead of eyewear, you get full meals, drinks, and desserts. It’s perfect for the summery OOTD photo with matching Sunnies shades.
Farmacy Ice Cream and Soda Fountain
Sadly, there is no real soda fountain here. But none the less, this place will satisfy your cravings for sweets and photo. This is because Farmacy makes some of the best ice cream scoops ever; both for the tongue and the eyes. You will definitely want to put your flat laying skills to the test and show every last drip of perfection in glorious HD. You can even tempt your follower even more by having a barkada shot of five servings of ice cream in one photo.
The Heart of God’s Country
This is only one of the murals that decorate a few of the best condos for sale in the Fort. Being that it’s huge – literally 85 feet tall – and that it’s popular style of art nowadays, it’s the perfect back drop for you and your hipster barkada to take a photo with. Just be sure to credit the artist, Andrew Schoultz. You can find this on the side of W Fifth Building.
No matter what time of day you choose to go to Unit 27, you will be able to take the most awesome pictures for your Instagram. During the day it’s a brunch café and, at night, it’s a happening place to party. With brick walls, neon lights, and lush color schemes it’s a perfect place with many option for backdrops for you and your friend to take some vanity shots in. The best part is that it goes well with the live music you will experience here at night.
These places show just how beautiful BGC is in and out. It’s no wonder many people aim to buy a condo for sale in the Fort. Living here is not only comfortable, but it’s also very recreational. Just imagine living like your life with Instagrammable visuals. What a life that would be! It makes buying a condo for sale in the Fort so much more tempting.
