Generally it is recommended that if you want to stay on the Strip, to find a lower cost Hotel such as the Sahara to stay at. You can spend your money elsewhere. The money you save can be used for the Vegas all day buffets or a trip to the South rim of the Grand Canyon.
If you are a photographer, but on a tight budget, then you can choose to rent a room with a magnificent view of the Vegas skyline for 1 night, and then move to a more budget friendly hotel.
In this city photographers have a lot of opportunities to take cool pictures, regardless of where they stay. One of the more popular areas for photographers to snap photos is down on Fremont. The Fremont Experience offers a wide avenue of photography options during the day and night time. You can take pictures of historic hotel casinos that use to be controlled by the Mafia. You can take nice pictures of the Fremont Canopy during one of the free light shows. You can also take photos of all the visitors to Fremont from all over the world. There is nothing funnier then taking pictures of people when they are dead drunk and staggering around screaming "Vegas baby!"
Las Vegas is a fun place for amateur shutterbugs to visit. You can take pictures all over the city and even head out to Hoover Dam for some scenic pictures. The whole area is comparable to letting a kid loose in a candy store for amateur photographers. When avid photographers return from their first trip to Nevada it could take them 3-6 months just to upload all of their images to Flickr. If you like taking photos with your Nikon DSLR and have never been to Las Vegas before, you need to schedule a cheap vacation to the Greatest City of Nevada. Even though you may not be drinking, I am sure we will hear you shout out at least once "Vegas Baby!" Image Credits: (Picassa/Andreas Stumptner) ---(Flickr/Thierry)--(Flickr/craigemorsels)
