This location is just fantastic. Definitely, a hidden gem that you can see the amazing landscape of Joshua Tree :) Spacy parking and a comfortable bungalow are very helpful to manage production flow. Highly recommended.

Giuseppe was wonderful! He went above and beyond to be helpful, a windstorm happened during our shoot day and he help find a new location for us, fixed a tire in no time and was so welcoming of me and my crew. The RV was very clean and well maintained, it really added value to my production. We had a great time and I hope to work with him again! Grazie!

At the intersection of retro futuristic and vintage minimalism this 1974 APOLLO AURORA is a well aged example of early seventies design. With a futuristic feel borrowing elements from jet design, space age and aerodynamic streamline aesthetics, this is a unique time capsule.

About Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree, California is an unincorporated area in San Bernardino County. Joshua Tree and the communities that surround it are in the California High Desert. This desert is also known as the Mojave Desert. It sits about 2,700 feet above sea level, and as of 2010 had a population of over 7,000.

This unincorporated area is mostly known for Joshua Tree National Park, which is only five miles away from the center of downtown. Since the community is not a city or town, it is represented by the Joshua Tree Municipal Advisory Council. They act as liaisons between Joshua Tree and the government of San Bernardino County.

Even though the community is famous for nearby Joshua Tree National Park, there are plenty of things to enjoy while indoors. Yucca Valley, Twentynine Palms, and Palm Springs are all just a short drive away. Joshua Tree National Park is the closest national park to both Los Angeles and San Diego.

Photo Shoot Venue Options in Joshua Tree

The scenic beauty in Joshua Tree makes it a perfect backdrop for any photo shoot. There are options in the small community, but you can also benefit from options available in Palm Springs and Los Angeles.

  • Cameras
    Your Joshua Tree photo shoot venue won’t be complete without good cameras and lenses. If you don’t own your own gear, you can rent it from a number of reputable places in San Bernardino County.

  • Catering
    If you plan for your Joshua Tree photo shoot to last over an hour or two, it might be a good idea to consider adding catering. This can be as simple as finger foods or a buffet-style layout, but it goes a long way in showing appreciation for your team.

  • Transportation
    Getting around Joshua Tree isn’t difficult, but a private transportation company can get you around the rest of San Bernardino County in style. Even if you don’t need a car specifically for your photo shoot, they can provide private car tours of nearby areas.

Pros and Cons of Photo Shoots in Joshua Tree

There are good sides to using a Joshua Tree photo shoot venue, but there are bad sides too. It’s always a good idea to know the pros and cons of any city you will be visiting.


  • The trees
    One of the biggest draws of Joshua Tree is just how close it is to Joshua Tree National Park. You can’t even visit this unincorporated community without noticing the famous Joshua Trees everywhere, which is what the park and community were named for.

  • Hidden gems
    Joshua Tree has become a popular getaway for those in Los Angeles and San Diego seeking to escape the big city lifestyle. However, the small community is also full of hidden gems that only locals know about.

  • Desert
    If you want to enjoy the desert life then Joshua Tree is one of the best communities to visit. It’s quiet and peaceful, with plenty of ways to enjoy the desert.


  • Small population
    The community of Joshua Tree is small, with right under 7,000 people calling the area home. The small population size is seen as a drawback of Joshua Tree.

  • Nightlife
    While there is plenty to be enjoyed in the great outdoors of Joshua Tree, there isn’t much of a nightlife. Compared to places like Los Angeles or San Diego, the nightlife in Joshua Tree is seriously lacking.

  • Wildfire threats
    Most places in Southern California are at near-constant risk of wildfires. The lack of rain mixed with the heat can easily lead to a devastating natural disaster.
