Exclamation Los Angeles Photography Help/spots

I'm located around Westwood/Pacific Palisades/ Santa Monica/ Malibu/ Beverly Hills. Needing ideas (exact addresses) for where to do my next photo shoot. As of now I think I'm going to get a couple on an incline between Pacific Palisades and Malibu, but feel that it will take away from the stance since its on a slope. Basically looking for a flat spot with a nice background. Remember the cars pretty dark. Give me some suggestions!

Spot 1



The car (without the new setup)

Should do the alleyway next to my apt. Pretty sweet lighting and urban feel.

Palos Verdes

If you want a nice drive, checkout Palos Verdes. Hawthorne Blvd heading up the hill to Ernie Howlett Park has some sweet trees and would make for some sick rolling shots. I've been wanting to shoot there for a while, but haven't had a chance. Bonus is that Hawthorne Blvd dead ends at the ocean, which is always a classic place for a shoot.

Hawthorne Blvd shown below...





Earnie Howlett Park below...


Once you get to the ocean...


The one below is actually taken from Hawthorne Blvd...


I did a shoot of my car at the Pointe Vicente Lighthouse in Palos Verdes...




Plus, you could always check-out my digs and head over to Redondo Beach. Snap a few pics along the Esplanade...
