Photographers at the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign


If you visit the iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, you’ll likely see photographers ready to snap tourist photos.

Like street performers, they are not official employees, work for tips, and you are not obligated to employ their services. Just ask another visitor to snap a pic for you instead.

While there is commonly a line that forms for the non-official photographer, you can feel comfortable skipping it. Walk right up and take your own pictures.

Oftentimes, showgirls or Elvis impersonators will also be present to take a photo alongside. As mentioned in the scam above, don’t feel pressured to overtip.

If the photographer or dancers tell you that the work for the Las Vegas Sign and try to charge you for picks, just walk away as that is a scam.  Otherwise, it’s okay to tip them for taking pictures of you or your group.
