Las Vegas Strip
Just walking down the Strip in Vegas is sure to give you inspiration, and Instagram worthy shots. There are so many architecturally interesting buildings, and iconic hotel facades as well. Since I’m from Canada I was fascinated just by the palm trees alone! I visited around Christmas too, so it was fun seeing some of them be decorated for the season.
Vegas And The Strip From Above
My friend and I were lucky enough to get a great deal and upgrade at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas on the Strip, and the views were unbeatable! Not only did we get the best view of the Strip and Bellagio fountains, we also had a breathtaking view of the mountains in the distance. I never thought about the nature part of Vegas until I went there, so seeing mountains was surprising and so exciting to see! Since our balcony overlooked all of the action, we had many opportunities to photograph the scenes in different lighting conditions which was amazing! We also never missed a Bellagio fountain show.
The Bellagio Fountains
Not only is photographing the Bellagio Fountains from above amazing, but seeing them just on street level is equally beautiful. They have shows at different times through the day, so you’re sure to be able to catch at least one show if you look for it. It’s the most impressive fountain I’ve seen to date, and is a pleasure to photograph. Seriously… It’s fun to photograph!
Hotels On The Strip
You have to see the hotels on the Strip! They all have so much character. They’re all so theme oriented, so it’s like going into a whole other world when you go into them. Nothing in Vegas really feels like real life as it is, but the hotels are crazy in the best way. Since they’re all so different, it makes them all so much fun to photograph. Again, since I went around Christmas, there were Christmas decorations everywhere. Since this is Las Vegas, they were obviously completely over the top! If you’re visiting Las Vegas around Christmas, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the beautiful decorations at the Bellagio Hotel!
Other hotels I loved taking pictures of were the Venetian (a replica of Venice Italy) and the Wynn hotel which has a carousel made from live flowers! It’s something you really need to see in person to fully appreciate!
If you’re looking for the best places to take pictures in Las Vegas, I hope this list was helpful to in getting you started. There are so many amazing things to take pictures of in Vegas, so this is obviously just a small sample from my quick trip, but if you have the time I would suggest also exploring off of the Strip to see other gems that you can photograph that are slightly off of the tourist path!
In case you’re interested, these photos were taken in 2015 on the Nikon D600 with the 16-35mm lens which I swear by! I plan to switch back to Canon in the future, and they now carry this lens too, so I will be repurchasing for sure!
