Best Photography Spots Reno Nevada

Updated Post Click Here For More Locations

Reno Nevada, also known as “The Biggest Little City” Known for its gaming and being close to Lake Tahoe (Nevada and California). These are the best places to shoot in Reno Nevada.

I shot both of this photos shortly after sunset. On the first photo it was so cold I couldn’t wait to be done, but I had to tough it out as the conditions for photos were good.

For my composition, I wanted to get the mountain in the back as part of the landscape because its one of Renos most popular sky resort “Mountain Rose” and the Reno skyline would not be the same without it.


The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon D800 with a Nikon 14-24mm and a Nikon 24-85mm.  A MeFOTO tripod and a wide angle is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.

Getting to this spots:
The best time to photograph any of this two places is at sunrise and or sunset. (I prefer sunset)

You will need a tripod and zoom lens of your choice, but it must be a zoom because the city is far away.

The dots on the map indicate where I was standing. Super easy to get to and accessible by car.

Good afternoon my peeps, I have been traveling the last week, I got in this morning a bit under the weather, blah… I went to San Francisco to Outside Lands with some of my really close friends, what an amazing music festival (photos soon to come). I got to see Metallica, Steve Wonder and some other amazing bands and musicians.

Of course I had to make a pit stop in Reno Nevada where I took this photo. I was shooting a couple bars my friend built here and of course I took some other personal photos. This is a mine inside the Silver Legacy Resort and Casino in Reno NV. I spent a better part of my youth roaming this place amongst others close by, if this walls could only talk, my Reno peeps know what Im talking about….. Have a crazy awesome weekend peeps and spread the love…

Shot of the Day-Reno’s Circus

Here is your photo of the day. This is in Reno Nevada outside the Circus Circus down town. This is very cool clown and fun to shoot. I got him from all kinds of angles but this one is the best. (I think?!?!)

I woke up at 3 am this particular morning to go shoot the sunrise in Lake Tahoe. I was exhausted by the time I took this photo witch was around 11:00pm but I just couldn’t put my camera down. Happy Thirsty Thursday peeps…
