Arizona has a long history, steeped in Native American settlements, wars, gold mining, the wild west and stunning geology. That all makes Arizona’s capital a pretty special place for photographers. But with so much to offer, it’s all about finding the right place. Continue reading
Two things have surprised me so far with ShotHotspot. 1. Transexuals like to take geotagged pictures of themselves (do they need to be geotagged!?), and 2. we get a lot of search for abandoned buildings.
We know some of the searches are Urban Explorers scouting out their next location, which is cool*, but a lot are photographers trying to find that dilapidated look for their photo shoot.
This post lists some derelict Abbeys in the North of England. These hundreds of years old monasteries or convents have fallen into a state of disrepair, and are in that slow process of being reclaimed by nature. They make for fantastic photography opportunities and boast leading lines-a-plenty. Continue reading
San Francisco is an amazingly diverse place, with so much to shoot. It’s no surprise that the most iconic photos of San Francisco are dominated by the Golden Gate Bridge, but it’s easy to forget how much else it has to offer to the photographer.
Here’s just some of the places that are worth paying a visit to with your camera. Continue reading
I was lucky enough to visit NYC in early 2012, but unlucky enough to not have ShotHotspot to help me plan my trip. I missed quite a few of these places, so if you’re heading that way you may want to consider these places.
We’ve used our search engine to make this list of the best photo locations in New York City. It’s quite touristy, but we’ll do another one for the more unknown spots. Continue reading
I’m not a fan of London. I suppose that can happen when you live close to any major city. But even I can’t deny that it does have some stunning sights that will leave any photographer straddling their tripod.
The sheer range of architecture on show in London is breathtaking. From the old Tower of London built in tenth century, to The Shard built in 2012, you’re guaranteed spectacular lines and shapes. With such iconic bridges and buildings, cityscapes are also a must if you’re visiting London.
We’ve used our search engine to compile this list of the top 10 photo locations in London. Being a photography website, this is aimed more at the photographer than tourists, although a lot of the spots suggest are all quite touristy. If you’re more an ‘off the beaten track’ kind of a person, I’ll do another Top 10 in the future for more unusual places in London.
