We are a professional photo shoot and filming location. Our 2 acres of south facing oceanfront grounds offer maximum light exposure, giving photographers the flexibility of many backgrounds, and magnificent sunsets. Many catalog photo shoots have used our spectacular ocean backdrops, our one acre infinity lawn, and our extensive manicured hedges. Our location offers two distinct settings. One setting is our upper level, with its large green lawn, nautical Cape Cod, Victorian home, rose and flower gardens, towering Cypress trees, and ocean backdrop. The second setting is our lower beach level, with bamboo cottage, tropical landscaping, Caribbean beach bar, tall, swaying palms, sandy beach, and ocean waves. Our private beach and point has spectacular rocks that make a great ocean backdrop. The adjacent cliffs bounce light off for great photos.
We understand and have the experience to anticipate our client’s needs. We recognize that you are on a budget and that time is always an issue. Therefore we are set up logistically for photo and film location use. Our amenities include unlimited Wi-Fi, two dedicated bathroom buildings, one located on the upper private road, the other on the beach level. The upper bathroom building has its own make-up table and special lighting. The upper level nautical house has a 400 sq. ft. staging room which is utilized for wardrobe, hair and makeup. It has dedicated circuits for steamers and hair dryers, and a 16 foot long wood counter top for sorting props and jewelry. There are several windows for natural light. The staging room has large warehouse doors which open wide, allowing for easy access of equipment which we allow to be stored overnight for multiple day shots. We also have over 100 outdoor electrical outlets placed in all areas of our 2 acre property. We have a mechanical equipment hoist to facilitate transport of equipment to the lower beach level. Most importantly, our private road allows for secure 30 car on-site parking, a place for an RV (with water & power hook up) & a shaded food service area with seating for the crew. For celebrity shoots, security and privacy is enhanced by our 20-foot wide private entrance gate as well as fencing along Pacific Coast Highway
