Agoura Hills & Calabasas Photography

Photoshoot Locations

There are so many great photography locations in Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and Malibu from which to choose for great photography. As a photographer I shoot at the beach and at parks or anywhere that the surrounding helps produce a fantastic image. One of my favorites to photograph due to its fabulous diversity is Paramount Ranch.

Paramount Ranch

Parmaount Ranch is so MUCH FUN!

Paramount Ranch is an old western town and is the set of numerous movies and television show.

Paramount Ranch is GREAT for outdoor photography.

As stated on the official website, "When Paramount Pictures leased the ranch in 1923, they began an era of film production that continues today. You can experience the area where Bob Hope starred in Caught in the Draft (1941) and Sandra Bullock had a leading role in The Lake House (2006). In the 1950s, Western Town was created for television shows, such as The Cisco Kid. More recent television productions at Paramount include The Mentalist, Weeds, and Hulu's Quickdraw (2013-2014).

Paramount Ranch offers several miles of easy to moderate scenic hikes through chaparral, riparian, and valley oak savannah plant communities. Equestrians and mountain bikers may access these multi-use trails. Wildlife sightings might include red-tailed hawks, acorn woodpeckers, blue heron and deer.

There are numerous structures and each structure provides fabulous back drop for photographs with a variety of textures and colors.

The photo of the stunning model on the motorcyle is Alina, Miss Laguna Beach.

This was one of the last shots of the day. It was captured at Paramount Ranch. Stunning!

Getting Ready for the Photoshoot

Great make up is important for the subject to look their absolute best.

Even the most beautiful models, pageant title holders, and actors know that everyone has flaws.

The purpose of make up is not necessarily to hide the subject's flaws, rather it is to ensure that minor flaws to not detract from your strengths.

Arranging Make Up

You are more than welcome to do your own make up.

However, if you are not comfortable doing your own make up then I will be happy to arrange a professional make up artist.

Make Up Artist Cost

Depending on who you choose the cost is typically between $100 and $200.

Where Does It Get Done?

Generally, we need a quiet place with nice light to do the make up.

The client may find it convenient to stop at the make up artist location. I work with make up artists in Hollywood, CA and else where in Los Angeles as well as in Agoura Hills.

Of course if we meet at my home/studio then you may get your make up done at my location. This is actually convenient as we can guide the make up artist to achieve the look we are seeking.
