Photographers’ Dining Club


We had the pleasure of helping organise the twelfth event for the Photographers’ Dining Club, which took place on Thursday 6th April 2017.

Held quarterly, the Photographers’ Dining Club is an evening of photography talks, great food and new connections. With the theme for this event being “Getting Commissioned,” the evening consisted of 4 fantastic guest speakers followed by a Q&A panel discussion.

Speakers and Special Guests:

David Wren (Photographer and filmmaker, recently signed by agent Germaine Walker)

Steve Ryan (Food and portrait photographer and Co Founder of Root + Bone and 40FT Brewery)

Dannie-Lu Carr (Communication and Creativity Specialist, TEDx Speaker)

Sarah Williams (Art Buyer at M&C Saatchi)._X8A8589

















Guests enjoyed a lovely 3 course dinner, including sharing food platters and plenty of beer and wine to go round!

We took care of all the logistics; from finding the venue, sourcing the catering as well as setting up on the day. We needed an interesting and versatile location to host the event, and using our location library we were able to provide the perfect setting in the heart of Brixton; Location #3913.

We look forward to seeing where the next event takes us!_X8A9794

Cats, dogs and a Wellbeloved blog

What happens when you mix 12 dogs, 3 cats, 2 locations and 1 mischievous ferret? A beautiful, James Wellbeloved pet-food campaign! Commissioned by AMV BBDO and shot by Andy Sewell (Black Dog represents) on location at a national park in Hertfordshire and in the grounds of one of our most enviable, residential library locations, Lake Manor House.

Cropped Animals-3

Back in November 2016, Locate Productions were tasked with finding open fields, country woodlands and old rustic homes to act as locations for the branding campaign. We found the ideal locations through our in-house Location Library and Scouting services.

BeFunky Collage

With winter just around the corner, we had to make the most of six hours of daylight by starting at 4am. Although challenging, the early start was certainly made easier with the accompaniment of cute talent!

On the Road with Channel 4


Working in locations can take you far and wide, you never know where you might end up. It can be an adventurous calling but not always a glamourous one.

We recently found ourselves in the lavatory of a local football club on a job for Channel 4 to promote their documentary  My Trans American Road Trip. Presented by Abi Austen, the world’s first soldier fully transitioned from a man to a woman, the show investigates what it names the ‘bathroom debate’.

We sourced the loo-cation and provided shoot management and production. Abi was photographed by Sebastien Nevols.

The image was used in various UK press titles to promote the show.

Jigsaw AW16 Photographed by Todd Hido

We provided the location for Jigsaw’s AW16 Lived Not Modelled campaign of eye catching, closely cropped and seemingly candid images. The model’s appear in a style more reminiscent of portrait photography where the viewer becomes the unwitting observer of a private moment, all lived not modelled.

The domestic scenes were shot in one our beautiful location library townhouses that met the brief of a subtle, sophisticated backdrop with real light to shoot real life images.


Photographer Todd Hido is known for his breathtaking and sometimes stark portraits so he was a bold and refreshing choice. Jigsaw interviewed him about his approach to shooting the campaign and his trademark style in their behind the scenes blog.


The ads will run in fashion magazines including Elle, and national titles including The Sunday Times Style and The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazines, throughout October. Campaign also wrote about the campaign’s appearance at Oxford Circus tube station.


Agency The Corner, Production Company And Production.

Saving Lives with the RNLI

Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 16.18.49We supplied the shoot management for this RNLI ‘Keep In Touch’ campaign having been commissioned by Art Buyers and Agency, Proximity London.

The image has been used online on the RNLI website with the important and timeless message that ‘your support will save lives’.

Shot in the carpark of the RNLI HQ in Dorset, the people in the tick all either work or volunteer for the RNLI and even included individuals rescued by them.

With the help of runners from Bournemouth Art College, we brought the beach to the RNLI by laying sand on the ground. There were plenty of laughs as a cherry picker and megaphone were used to co-ordinate the tick formation so Photographer Howard Bartrop could get the perfect shot.

The aerial shot of the sea was taken using a drone over a beach in Norfolk before the two images were combined to create the final result!
