Best outside places for Photoshoot

in and around Las Vegas

near Red Rocks and calico basin 

There are numerous amazing spots in Red Rock.  To reach the locations we can to walk between 5 minutes and 1 hour. This amazing image required a half an hour walk. Some other locations are as close as 5 minutes walk and offer trees and greenery. The rocks vary greatly too: from grey to deep red. The exact location will depend on your preference.



Dry Lake Beds

Between 40 and 50 minutes south of Las Vegas there are fantastic dry lake beds for a unique desert look for your pictures. They give a beautiful natural reflection and lots of space. It is possible to bring props to add to the images. 

Nostalgia Resources and Dogwood Rentals can provide packages with props and furniture for outdoor photoshoots.

Mnt. Charlesont -kyle and lee canyons

40/50 minutes north of Las Vegas we can quickly drive from 4000 ft (1200 m), to 8000 ft (2400m) and with the height comes the temperature drop! Even when town is above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature on the mountain ranges between  75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit! It is the perfect location for summer shoots or for snowy portraits! 



Nelson landing

 An hour south of Las Vegas, Nelson is an old mining town, now ghost town with numerous old cars, barns and even a fallen small plane! It is an ideal place for an old time desert feel.  The permit for photoshoots here is very reasonable.

The casinos do not allow any photography inside but we can photography on the Strip itself, outside the buildings. Some locations outside are also privately owned and do not allow professional photography.

A fantastic historical location for a true Vegas photoshoot. A 30 minute private slot permit for a photoshoot starts at $500.

Best Indoor Places for Photoshoots 

hotel rooms and suites

What better way to treat yourself than to book a nice hotel room on the Strip and to use it for a beautiful photoshoot?! Please note that most hotels do not allow photoshoots in lobbies and especially never in the Casino area, however we can shoot in rooms and suites.  

My personal top Hotels on the Strip for Boudoir, Lifestyle and Product Photos are: 

  • The Delano at Mandalay Bay - Nice large room, mostly white with a lot of natural light and a very clean, chic look.
  • The Palms - in particular the Ivory tower has great rooms and suites with interesting wall art, bright colors, wall paintings and the added bonus of the view on the Strip.
  • Encore and Wynn - sophisticated and always classy, the rooms feature a large window and lots of exciting mirrors
  • The Mansion - if you are a lucky person and know of it, you know what I absolutely love to photograph at the MGM Mansion in Las Vegas
  • Cosmopolitan - it is rare to be able to open the windows in hotel rooms on the Strip. The balconies and open windows are fantastic and give much need natural light
  • Hard Rock Hotel - another place where we can open the windows and capture that rock vibe! 
  • The Palazzo - when every room is a suite there is a lot of space to pose and create a unique, sensual photoshoot.
