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

  • Photography Studios

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:

The Welsh House Cottages Pt 1
The Welsh House Cottages Pt 2
The Forge, Hampshire
The Crow's Nest, Lyme Regis
The Forge, Hampshire, Spring 2019
The Arched House, Lyme Regis, Spring 2019

Air bnb very local to our studio on Thornhill Square:
This is a good option if you want a kitchen/diner setup as we do not have that at our studio.
£400-£650 per day depending on the shoot type/client.

Location agencies offer a choice of properties that are often custom built/dressed for photo shoots
They are expensive, from £1000 per day + VAT, but can be worth it if the style is right for your brand.
