Photo Shoot is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to protagonist Niko Bellic by North Holland Hustler leader Playboy X from his penthouse on Xenotime St in Northwood, Algonquin, Liberty City. It is unlocked by the mission Deconstruction for Beginners.


Playboy suspects that Marlon Bridges had been ratting on Playboy. He wants Niko to go to the basketball courts on Exeter Avenue to kill the snitch. Niko doesn't know how he looks like and Playboy tries to explain his appearance. After a while of explaining and Niko still not understanding it, Playboy gives Niko his own upgraded cell phone to take a picture so he can tell Niko which one to kill. Niko heads to the basketball court, takes the picture (and is requested for a proper one if he doesn't take a good enough one), and sends it to Playboy. Playboy calls back and tells Niko which one to kill. Niko successfully kills Marlon.

If you aim a gun at any of the gang members, the game forces you to kill all of them, and you will fail the mission if one of them gets away because of how it may have been Marlon.


The rewards for completing this mission is $6,750 and an upgraded cell phone. The missions The Holland Play and Wrong is Right are unlocked.


  • Strangely, the phone Niko recieves from Playboy is a different, blockier phone(equal to the standard Whiz wireless phone used by the usual pedestrians and by Roman), but Niko's Phone doesn't change (he still uses the same Badger phone throughout the game, albeit with the Whiz phone's features).
