About us


Light Locations is a unique photo location agency providing beautiful, inspiring lifestyle locations to the photographic, film/TV industry.

The agency was founded by Sophie Hitchens in 2001. Sophie worked in the photographic industry for many years gaining knowledge and valuable experience before launching Light Locations. The business has grown from strength to strength and is now an established, well known and respected name in the industry.

We take great pride in providing only the finest, most stylish, inspiring photo shoot locations in the UK by keeping our portfolio to a manageable size. This enables us to build a personal relationship with both owner and client and provide an efficient and friendly service for which we are renowned.

We ensure that the website is user friendly, informative and not a chore to find a location. The website is always kept fresh and inspirational and regularly updated with new photo locations so clients have all the up to date information they need, as well as receiving regular newsletters promoting new properties.

We hope you enjoy visiting the website and that you find what you are looking for.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Humbie is Sophie’s fox terrier and is in the Light Locations office every day! When he is not fishing through the bins for anything edible, barking at the post man for more treats he is mostly fast asleep in his cosy bed! The office would not be the same without him!
