Hired studio or hired house?
Choosing the location for the shoot is a crucial part of the planning process and will dictate the style and logistics of the shoot. We shoot at our Islington studio 90% of the time, however occasionally we need a more unique space. Here are some options and examples.
This page covers:
Our regular location shoots in hired properties around the UK
Location properties / Air bnbs
3-4 times per year we arrange hire of a location property in the UK for 3-5 days. We offer shorter shoot options, like 4-5 products, as well as full day shoots.
In most cases we transport the products to and from our studio and style/shoot on location without the clients there. Therefore this option requires a detailed plan and communication with our stylist.
See examples of these shoots at the following links:
