Places to shoot scenic shots in Taos, NM

I'm sending a TV crew to Taos later this week, and I'm curious to know where the best places are to shoot beauty shots and establishing shots. Things like "Welcome to Taos" signs or artists' markets. I would greatly appreciate any and all suggestions!

While I'll leave the specific places to locals from up there, your crew should have no trouble filling their needs.

In fact, they'll probably have problems choosing from all the beauty shots available. Quite a scenic place!

Sorry for the late response, but we've been away at a Professional Innkeepers Conference in Charleston, SC where we also were meeting with representatives of TripAdvisor.com.

TV crews generally have the best luck contacting the staff in the Visitor's Center or spending time with a local who will direct them to various locations throughout town.

Again, I apologize, but it is simply impossible to list the venues in a forum post since there are dozens and dozens. Without some feel for the nature of the TV show, for example, there is simply no way to direct you to "beauty shots." For example, when we were recently visited by a television crew from the French "Voyage" channel, we spent considerable time narrowing down their areas of interest and then assisting them in finding those places.

A warning: the Taos Pueblo is a World Heritage Site, but TV crews are not allowed open access. Very high fees are associated with filming on the Pueblo if your venture is commercial.

Check out the website I listed above.

It is amazing the number of places the NM film office has uncovered, including maps to find each site. I am impressed!
