Suggestions for photoshoot locations in Orange County ?

All,

I'm looking to do a proper photoshoot for my car here in Orange County. Does anyone have any suggestions for good locations? Did a quick search in the California forum but nothing helpful came up.

Here are the three main categories I'm looking to take shots in - (1) Industrial locations, (2) Parking Garage, (3) Scenic locations. I'm also considering doing some (4) rolling shots.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate them.


Thanks in advance to everyone .

Behind the shop is one of the most ideal industrial locations as it offers a great backdrop for photos.

Yeah, that's why people use it. Try looking it up on google maps and see.

I used to work at the Oakley HQ. If only they would allow you to bring your car inside the lobby to shoot.

May be a bit late but if you want to drive a bit farther you can go to route 74/Ortega Highway and stop by "The Lookout" Thats a pretty cool place.
