1) The area’s diverse landscape

Hudson Valley has been a destination for photoshoots since the early 1800s when it was known as Picturesque America. The area is now one of the most sought-after photoshoot locations because of its diverse landscape, which ranges from the farms of upstate New York to Brooklyn-Esque views in Kingston, NY. Photographers and film directors love shooting here because this diversity and proximity allow them to be in multiple locations within a few hour’s drive. It’s also much cheaper than other popular areas like Los Angeles.
