The Light at Preston Castle (Cont’d)

On our last photo day I had discussions with a few photographers about how they wished they had brought lights in. My belief is that the castle provides wonderful light throughout the entire day, so at the last Photographer Day I set out to see what light was available.

I always encourage anybody when they have a chance to visit the castle. And if you dare, “wink, wink” come out to our largest event; The Halloween Haunt. Check the website for tours, events, and more history on the Preston Castle.

The Light at Preston Castle

For the past few years, one of my favorite side projects is my involvement with the Preston Castle in Ione, CA. It was correctional institute for minors.

The Preston School of Industry was built in 1890 in the Romanesque Revival style. Red sandstone bricks quarried six miles from Ione and made at San Quentin and Folsom prisons make up the castle’s distinct exterior. The Preston School of Industry remained open until 1960 when new facilities for the school were completed. The building remained vacant and fading into disrepair until September 10, 2001.
