The Big Apple is calling not just you, but your camera too.

People come to NYC for many reasons. Some come to chase fame and money, some come for freedom and equality or to try something different. Heck, people come for anything. A city as diverse in culture as in geography, it’s no wonder that it’s a top spot for many photographers

My first time in New York, I was swamped with work related meetings and events and hardly had time to snap some good New York photography. This time, I made it my mission to truly see the city.

If you’re hitting the Big Apple and want to capture every iconic (and cliche) spot, be sure to check these out.

I did. I couldn’t help it.

    I haven’t been to Washington, so I can’t pick a favourite place – but some of those shots are amazing!

    Great post! Every time I go back home to New York I try to get some of these iconic photos, especially a photo on the Brooklyn Bridge!
