Hi there!

I'm looking to do an outdoor shoot with a model. The setting we've been talking about is hard walls (either stone, brick, or concrete) with graffiti. We'd like the shoot to be topless, at the very least.

Anyone in the Los Angeles area know of a location that would work for this and be secluded enough for a model to take off her clothes? Something in Orange County would work too.

Thanks in advance for your help!

DM Gremlin Studios in in Long Beach has an outside graffiti wall that would work.

The Blast Tunnel is pretty sweet... about 20 minutes from where you are in Chino... always vacant with no one ever there.  I'm not gonna post location info here cause they'll be a thousand GWCs there next week... PM me for details... wink

Try looking at underpasses with highways.  I bet you could find a couple that don't have homeless living there and don't have a bike path underneath so you'd have good privacy.

seconded - a lot less chance of meeting people that remind you of "28 days later"

Parking structures and buildings work at the crap load of business centers and business parks around the Tustin/Irvine areas. I recommend shooting on a Sunday at those locations. When I was going to school down there, I used those places all the time.

Thanks for the recommendations, everyone!

Still haven't found a location yet, so if anyone else has any ideas, let me know. :-)

There are a bunch of places like that around the Los Angeles River around sixth street bridge.  It's way over shot, but it may give you the look you want.

Also downtown area near San Fernando road and the 5 Freeway.
