Photo Opportunies are only available in San Fierro. You have to take a picture of the icon that shows up, but they only show up when you're looking through a camera. However, once the in-game clock strikes midnight, you'll be able to see a glow where the icons are located. For every Photo Op you get, you will receive $100 and if you get all 50, then you gain $100,000 and four weapons will spawn outside of your garage in Doherty; Micro-SMG, Grenades, Shotgun and Sniper Rifle.
Here are some easy-to-get locations for a camera:
- Bedroom in your house in Los Santos
- Inside the terminal station across the street from your garage in Doherty
- Near the end of the docks in Easter Basin just north of the airport
- On the steps in front of Avispa Club
NOTE: These Photo Ops are done in order, so it might be confusing if one is picked at random.
