These are the best photography spots in Reno Nevada. Trust me, I know that place inside and out. I spent 20 years of my life there.  Where is Reno Nevada? Reno Nevada sits neighboring California in Northern Nevada. Its exact location would be 440 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada if you were to head north.

Reno Nevada is also known as “The Biggest Little City in The World.” The sign downtown will tell you just that.

Reno Nevada is a charming city surrounded by beautiful mountains. With Lake Tahoe just over the hill, there are lots of stunning views to be had from the Biggest Little City.  However, I have found the best Reno Nevada photography spots.

The Gear

For the best photography spots in Barcelona, we recommend the holy trinity.  A wide-angle lens.  14-24mm or something similar.  A 24-70mm or something similar and, of course, a 70-200mm or something similar.

If you do not have these particular lenses, do not worry; something similar will be just fine. It would be best if you also had a tripod.
