Taking to the Skies with Direct Line Fleetlights

We supplied the location for this Direct Line video promotion of their new prototype service, Fleetlights.

Saatchi & Saatchi then hosted an event where they screened the video Fleetlights for Direct Line | Explore the Technology to journalists in one of the location’s rooms. It has racked up over 15k views on youtube since its launch!

Shot in Petworth, which is home to one of the most dangerous roads in the UK, watch as people experience Fleetlight in action.

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!

Historic Royal Palaces

Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 15.53.24

We just about managed to keep our heads whilst out working with photographer Adam Hinton for Historic Royal Palaces recently!

Adam (Wyatt Clarke & Jones) shot some hair raising reenactment scenes at the Tower of London for their ‘unforgettable day out’ campaign that states ‘real drama doesn’t come in a box set…from the Kray twins to traitors and polar bears, the Tower of London has seen it all.’

A world away from all that drama was the shoot for The Empress and the Gardener, a current exhibition at Hampton Court Palace, presenting for the first time ever ‘a remarkable collection of watercolour paintings and drawings once owned by the Empress Catherine the Great of Russia’ and ‘vividly captures Hampton Court during the time when Capability Brown served there as Chief Gardener to King George III.’ It is on until 4 September 2016 and entrance to the exhibition is included with palace admission.

Locate Productions provided shoot production services for these summer stills campaigns that were used in advertising posters seen across the capital.

Capturing the Skill of Parkour with Shamil Tanna


We recently went underground and over rooftops with Photographer Shamil Tanna on this energetic shoot of some Parkour personalities. Shamil is an ascending star in his own right and is sought after for his portrait and campaign work, having captured many well known faces in the world of sport and beyond.

One of our urban Library locations provided the backdrop and platform for this display of athletic choreography, that at times appeared to defy the law of physics. The results were stunning frames of runners suspended in motion, as if frozen or held by an invisible force, that make you look twice.


According to Parkour UK ‘the sport originally termed Art du Deplacement, now also often referred to as Parkour or Freerunning, was founded in France in the 1980s by a group of nine young men.’

The urban streets and car parks of France seem the natural place for such a sport to be conceived and forged that reflects their national motto of ‘Liberté, égalité, fraternité’. This is not rebellion in action but freedom, vive le Parkour!
