Scouting Shevlin Park

We’re so grateful to Visit Central Oregon for supporting our work!  With their grant support, we’re able to expand our media library, sharing the stunning locations Central Oregon is famous for. Today we scouted one of our favorite parks, located an easy 10 minutes from downtown Bend. Shevlin  has a myriad of locations on its nearly 1,000 acre park, all with Tumalo Creek running through the center.  With multiple bridges, including a covered bridge, tree varieties (aspens and ponderosa’s) and incredible vistas, Shevlin is a film set waiting to happen.  We also think it would be a fabulous location for a car commercial given the road winding along the river, with distinct looks on either side.  We’d love to see someone shoot here in the Fall when the Aspens are golden and shimmer in the breeze. Bend Park and Rec are easy to work with on inexpensive permitting and we’re here to help you in any way.

Fall Creek (Winter)

Every now and then we find a hidden gem in Central Oregon. This stunning river is located in La Pine, close to Sunriver and Bend.  It’s perfect for a fly-fishing shoot, recreational or even a wedding layout.   Parking is available close to the trail down to the bridge and Deschutes National Forest maintained restrooms on site.  Beautiful year round.

Deschutes National Forest permit required.  Please apply 30 days in advance.

Prineville and Highway 27

Prineville, and the areas around it are a film set waiting to happen.  Ever see the film “Pleasantville”?  Prineville has a Normal Rockwell charm to it with beautiful buildings and a small town Americana vibe.  Prineville is the oldest community in Central Oregon, dating back to 1868 and many of the buildings reflect the charm and character of that time period.

But what’s even better than downtown Prineville, are the areas outside it.  We recently scouted Highway 27 which runs along the Crooked River.  The rock formations and topography are just breathtaking.  Check out our images below to get an idea of where you could shoot.

With  a proactive Chamber of Commerce and a  plethora of varying locations to choose from, we highly recommend Prineville as a destination location. The area has stunning rock formations, golf courses, reservoirs and a currently empty medical building that could be the backdrop of your production.
