Location, location, location……Big Sur has to hands down be one of the most beautiful spots on this earth, beautiful and rugged. Mother nature does not let you forget her presence for long in this wild area. Highway One was closed in two different sections, for mudslides and a bridge failure, so we were fortunate to be able to shoot running shots on the famous Bixby Bridge with very little traffic. With the help of Aspen Productions, their awesome crew and two California Highway patrolmen and a gorgeous day the shoot went off beautifully. I can honestly it was one of my personal favorites shoot days ever.
From Big Sur the crew headed to Oakland for some urban street scenes and urban gym shots. Oakland provided not only great locations but some of the best restaurants you can find. The gastro scene in the East Bay is out of this world. A few suggestions below.
