By Edhat Subscriber

Does anyone knows if there are abandoned houses that I can use for a photo shoot?

Yes, there are. You'll need the owner's permission though.

Without permission, no. With all the scarpers out there stripping places of copper and other valuable materials left I'd be careful. Mr. Denkin's has been known to shoot trespassers on sight for example. If you can get permission though you're all good.

What about the old Devereux on the point at/by UCSB? There are plenty of old houses/buildings there. I just don't know who owns the grounds..

Call a realtor - I'm sure there are still a lot of bank owned properties that are abandoned.

I believe you're looking for distressed structures with lots of visual texture. With the high cost of real estate in this area such properties don't sit undeveloped for long (Miramar exempted) so you may have to travel a bit.

Have you considered the abandoned refinery Ventura along Hwy33, right next to Brook's Institute?

There are also many decaying structures in the Mojave desert where you don't have to worry about being charged with breaking and entering.

There's a decaying house on Alamo Pintado just past the children's park in Solvang, across from the apple orchard. It's surrounded by a barbed wire fence now and I don't know who owns it but it would make for some great photos if you could contact the owner and get permission.

Be careful about visiting the abandoned refinery. Our last visit there we were confronted by a guy living on the property claiming to be a security guard, but lacking any of the credentials, sketchy. He carries a gun (loaded w\salt pellets) and has dogs. Unless you are stealth I'd avoid it.

I am looking for a visually not appealing home...I need it to look like a damn crack house! LOL... I kind of did not want to travel and wanted to stay in SB. Thanks anyways for the comments and I guess I will skip on this concept.

Have you watched, "Breaking Bad?" A crack house can look like any house here in SB, Goleta, or Carp.

If your looking for a "free" place to shoot give up. You need owners permission, insurance and if you bring in a crew the city can require a permit. Your best bet is through friends. Sometimes people will let you shoot if you compenstate them with photos or cash. One of my favorite places was Camp Roberts, the barracks. Good luck on finding that special place.

Ok, how about a nice looking property! Does anyone have a large property that I can use, mostly looking for grounds that are nicely landscaped, preferably a large property in montecito or hope ranch...NOT bringing a crew, just me and the model....Images will not be used for publishing, just my personal portfolio.
