Missouri is a state with diverse landscapes and rich history. Whether you are a nature lover, a history buff, or a city dweller, you can find something to capture your interest and your camera lens in Missouri. In this blog post, I will share some of the best places to photograph in Missouri and some tips on how to make the most of your visit.

One of the most iconic landmarks in Missouri is the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. This 630-foot tall monument is the world's tallest arch and a symbol of the city's role as a gateway to the west. You can take stunning photos of the arch from different angles and perspectives, such as from the ground, from a boat on the Mississippi River, or from the observation deck at the top of the arch. The best time to photograph the arch is during sunrise or sunset, when the sky is painted with beautiful colors and the arch reflects the light.

Another great place to photograph in Missouri is the Ozark Mountains. This region covers the southern half of the state and offers scenic views of rolling hills, forests, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. You can explore the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, which preserves two of the most pristine rivers in the country: the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers. You can also visit some of the caves that dot the area, such as Onondaga Cave or Meramec Caverns. The Ozarks are especially beautiful in autumn, when the foliage turns vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow.

If you are interested in history and culture, you can also find plenty of photographic opportunities in Missouri. You can visit some of the historic sites that mark important events in American history, such as the Harry S. Truman National Historic Site in Independence, where you can see the home and museum of the 33rd president; or the Wilson's Creek National Battlefield in Republic, where you can learn about one of the first major battles of the Civil War. You can also experience some of the cultural attractions that Missouri has to offer, such as the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, which houses a collection of over 35,000 artworks from various periods and regions; or the Silver Dollar City in Branson, which is a theme park that celebrates the 1880s with rides, shows, crafts, and festivals.
