Standorte Lieux

We can show you around different locations in Kiev and near Kiev, and we can also provide you with the driver who will be taking you from one location to another during the day if necessary.

You can shoot at the river, in the forest, at the beach, in old abandoned buildings, in typical Ukrainian village surroundings, with the windmills, stables with horses etc.

We can also organize trips outside of Kiev (Crimea, Lviv, Odessa) on request and depending on availability.

Here you can see some samples of the places where you can photograph in Ukraine. Most of these places are not crowded so you can take your time and work in privacy.

NEW - Abandoned Building

Located in central Kiev there is an abandoned building and which has been vacant since the 1970’s. All the furnishings have been removed and the plaster is now crumbling and where doors hang from their hinges - ideal for artistic images. On the top floor there is a ballroom with 360 degree views over Kiev and where the natural light is just perfect for photographers. This location has to be booked in advanced and is only available at weekends - please contact Phototours-Ukraine for more information.

model_206_04_Rimma_22goda_171sm_50kg_87-60-87s River_dnieper1 model_88_Viktoria_08_22_174sms

Located in the very centre of Kiev there is an island on the river Dnieper which has many forests and private beaches where you can shoot models in private and seclusion. This location can easily be reached by taxi, or if you prefer PhotoTours can arrange pick-up and drop off for both you and your model(s).

Our driver knows how to take you to the area next to the river, in the forest where there are no or very few people. It is basically a forest, some fallen trees, river, a bit of sand at the shore. It is the most central location if you need nature and want to save time getting to the location.

Costs involved: driver to take you there.

Country Club and horse hire

Phototours-Ukraine can also arrange the hire of horses for that photo shoot with a difference. How about shooting your own Lady Godiva!

There is a horse club where you can hire a horse and photograph in the forest and fields there as well. There is also outdoor pool there.

Costs Involved: Horse Hire (25-30 euros per hour), Use of pool (15 euros), driver. There is a nice restaurant with wooden bridges over lake etc, and you can also do nudes there.

Pirogovo (open-air museum)

Location_05s Pirogovo-location-s1

Only a short 30 minute drive by car from Kiev there is an open-air museum called Pirogovo which contains windmills and other samples of Ukrainian architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries.

It covers a total of 1.5 square kilometers (370 acre) and contains over 300 pieces of folk architecture brought here from all parts of Ukraine and carefully reassembled.

The entire territory of the museum is divided into sectors, each representing the folk architecture and life of a specific Ukrainian region. In the center of it there is a picturesque hill with windmills.

It has wooden houses, wide fields and forests too. Very special are the windmills and the wooden houses, and it is better if you have a model that is not shy as there might be some people around (we can advise). The area is huge, and if you go far away, you get to the places where there are no people at all, but there are no windmills or houses there, just forest and fields. You can go there for a day, there are several simple style but very good typical Ukrainian restaurants.

Costs Involved: Entrance ticket, ticket that allows you to photograph on the territory (we highly recommend you get one) (around 15 euros). and if you like, you can walk there, or you can also come in with the driver by car and drive around. In that case you need to buy ticket for the car (also around 15 euros). That means you will probably need to pay drivers full day rate (100 euros). Or he can also drop you off there and pick you up later.


Forests, marshes and lakes

Also on the outskirts of Kiev there are vast forest regions, some with marshes and lakes and where it is easy to find an idyllic and secluded location to photograph your model in private.


Although it is possible to hire a car, PhotoTours Ukraine would recommend using one of our drivers who could take you there and then pick you up later at a pre-arranged time

Costs involved: driver to take you there.

Derelict building / dam and river location

Location_nature_02s river3

Derelict building, 2.5-3 hours drive from Kiev. Very beautiful ruins in extremely picturesque place. The advantage of this place is that a short drive from there you can find some impressive rocks, river and nature in general. The disadvantage is that sometimes there might be  some people around. We advise to go there for the whole day as this place is far away and has a lot to offer.

Costs involved: driver for the whole day (only drop off and pick up are not possible).
