This will be the first group shoot out at this beautiful location but it won’t be the last! A hidden diamond on a sunny hillside with panoramic views of Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay, this exquisitely designed rustic European estate is not to be missed.  You will note a castle-like feel upon entering the gates of the residence. With old world materials like 200 year old reclaimed oak and pine barn wood for the flooring and stairs, and recycled roof tiles from the 19th century from Spain, its no wonder. The distressed French limestone on the lower level spilling out to the rear patio terrace and pool deck gives the estate a warm earthy feel under your feet. The interior lighting is second to none. The Chefs kitchen and large antique center island and perfect for themed shoots.  There are four guest rooms with warm inviting colors and private full luxury baths.  Locations like the professional grade pool table in the lower quarters, or the lower terrace by the infinity pool and spa make inviting backdrops.  Photographers with waterproof cameras are welcome to jump in the pool and get some underwater shots!   With a full vanishing edge pool overlooking the beaches and lights of Monterey Bay, you may never want to leave. At night the estate comes alive with the moonlight reflecting on the LED lit pool, which slowly changes color from blue to violet to white.  This venue is truly a dream come true!

What are the typical $$ rates for 1-on-1 time (30 min sessions).  Also, what kind of $$ is required for model releases?  Without a release, are we not able to publicly post the images in our portfolio's?

Thanks...

There's only one model so far?  I'd be interested in knowing how many photographers and how many models you are planning.  Thanks.

It's going to be faaabulous! (Yes, I am watching some RuPaul). Aaaand, I'm going on a cruise to Mexico two days later! It's going to be great. And I'm probably going to stay in the area, if anyone wants to shoot on the beach afterwards.

Still looking for some one on ones! I'm so stoked.
