Thanks to our friends at the New Orleans Visitors & Convention Bureau for this great list of the Top Photographed Places in New Orleans.  Let's take a look!

  1. St. Louis Cathedral - suggestions for getting the best photo of this historic Jackson Square icon include shooting at dawn or dusk 
  2. Architecture of the French Quarter - photo tips include ensuring you capture the elaborate verandahs to be found on most buildings such as at the corner of St. Peter and Royal Street
  3. The Culture of Frenchmen Street - if possible, slow down your shutter speed to capture the essence of this vibrant cultural street full of artists and musicians
  4. New Orleans Swamp Country - when you venture out into the swamp lands of Louisiana, photo tips include taking a close up picture of the haunting cypress trees draped with moss or the beautiful lily pads
  5. Cemeteries & the Mansions of the Garden District - photograph suggestions include the George Washington Cable House on 8th Street or the Van Benthuysen-Elms Mansion on St. Charles Ave and the above ground tombs & beautiful marble statues
