About Malibu

The city of Malibu is known as, “a fabled beachfront with real star power,” and that’s exactly what you get when you visit or work here. Malibu is home to many celebrities and some beaches that are just as famous as those same celebrities. The Pacific Coast Highway runs along the 21 miles of ocean in Malibu. Although it has a reputation as home to some of the Hollywood greats, most residents in the city are from the middle class.

There are 11 beaches along those 21 miles of the Pacific Ocean, and many of them are favorites of surfers. There are also plenty of other outdoor recreation opportunities in the Santa Monica Mountains, the Malibu Bluffs, and other locations. Los Angeles is only 30 miles away from Malibu, making access between the two fairly simple. But, with a population of around 11,000 people, you really are away from it all in Malibu. There’s also a strong arts and culture community in Malibu.

Pros and Cons of Photo Shoot Venues in Malibu

What’s not to love about the fabled beachfront? Actually, there’s a lot to love, but there are also a few pros and cons of choosing a photo shoot venue in Malibu that you should be aware of.

Advantages

  • Mediterranean climate
    The Mediterranean climate in Malibu means they have warm, dry summers. They have moderate temperatures year-round thanks to the proximity of the Pacific Ocean, so while other California cities are heating up during the “dog days of summer,” it’s still fairly pleasant in Malibu.

  • Scenic
    Malibu is stunningly beautiful any time of year, and each season brings something new to see and adds to the scenic advantages of the area. There’s a reason people love it here, and most recognize it as soon as they arrive.

  • Cultural opportunities
    There are plenty of cultural and recreational opportunities in Malibu, so you will have plenty of entertainment when you’re not working on your photo shoot. The Adamson House and Museum is a popular spot, as is the J. Paul Getty Museum. There are many events throughout the year too, and cultural opportunities at art galleries and through the garden club.

Disadvantages

  • Natural disasters
    It’s not all sunshine and mild temperatures in Malibu. The area is prone to natural disasters, including wildfires, mudslides, storms, and earthquakes. Well-informed is well prepared.

  • Price tag
    Malibu is expensive, which isn’t a big surprise, given all the advantages and amenities the city has. Be prepared for the costs of working in Malibu to take a bigger chunk of your budget than originally anticipated.

  • Dangerous roads
    The Pacific Coast Highway is famous and on many people’s bucket lists. But driving it at night can be dangerous. There are a lot of car accidents on the road because of the canyons, curves in the road, and the excessive speed that many drivers use on the road.

Famous Locations in Malibu

  • Zuma Beach
    Zuma Beach is everything we think of when we think of Malibu. Wide, expansive beach with glistening sand and gorgeous waves. It’s the stuff that photographers, vacationers, and beach bums dream of. With sunny skies almost every day and an average temperature of 80 degrees, be sure to pack your sunscreen and swimming suit.

  • Malibu Lagoon State Beach
    Malibu Lagoon State Beach has the nickname Surfrider Beach. Three guesses how it got this nickname and the first two don’t count. Surfers love it here. Surfrider Beach was also dedicated as the first World Surfing Reserve in 2010. Its location across the street from the civic center makes it easy to access.

  • Santa Monica Mountains
    The beaches aren’t the only thing that Malibu is known for. The Santa Monica Mountains are a huge attraction for visitors too with its trails, waterfalls, canyons, and expansive grasslands. It’s a wonderful place to explore and enjoy a different side of nature.
