Fashion Shoot | Preston Castle

“A castle? An abandoned castle? In the middle of nowhere? Sweet!” These were my thoughts when I was invited to shoot with a group of local photographers at the Preston Castle in Ione, California.

It’s pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Although, they do have a Mexican restaurant with lunch specials. But it basically consists of a main street. In fact we passed the location of the shoot about three times before we realized where we had to turn.

A couple of weeks ago, I went with Jessie Cho, Rosaura Sandoval, Traig Smith, Greg Montanio, Dave Schilling, and Jackie Willard up to Preston Castle. It was hot and dusty and just plain dirty. And according to the lady who opens the gate to visitors and such, also potentially dangerous. Dangerous due to unstable scaffolding and old construction. But it was a very cool place to shoot at. The natural lighting was amazing and so fun to play and experiment with.

Here are some of my favorite shots:
