Our story began in 2001 when experienced photographer Sophie Hitchens created her own photoshoot location agency. To reflect a passion for beautifully proportioned, well-lit and inspirational spaces for photography shoots, Sophie named the agency Light Locations.
Our first location house in Brixton (sadly no longer a shoot location) was very unusual and offered something that no one else was offering at the time. It gave Light Locations fantastic exposure, which, together with Sophie’s established industry contacts meant our location portfolio and client base grew from strength to strength.
Initially based in the hub of London city life, we moved to the beautiful Wiltshire countryside in 2009. In the summer of 2015 we bought and renovated a new premises of our own. Our stunning office is a serene, calm and flexible space near Devizes in West Wiltshire that is also available to hire for photoshoots.
We believe in taking the stress out of finding and shooting properties and pride ourselves on providing only the most stylish and inspiring photoshoot locations.
We’ve always ensured our portfolio stays manageable so that our clients and owners experience very personal and efficient service. Our friendly approach to organising shoots has made us a well-known and respected name in the industry.
We only choose locations we’d personally shoot
Our founder, Sophie, knows what makes a great photoshoot location. If a property inspires her, she will visit and take the photographs to ensure we only take on the very best.
We know our properties like the back of our hands
Everyone in our team has visited the majority of Light Locations. We’re able to tell our clients about the small things — from the quality of light in each room to whether or not we think their vision for a location would work.
We treat our owners and clients like family
We keep our portfolio to a manageable size. This means we can form a personal relationship with all of our owners and clients. If you work with us, you will get to know the voices at the end of the phone, and we will get to know yours. We will go above and beyond to work around your dates and deadlines.
We keep our website user friendly, fresh and informative
This means it isn’t a chore to find the right location. The site is regularly updated with new locations for photoshoots and newsletters go out regularly to ensure clients have all the up to date information they need.
I have worked with Light Locations for just over eight years now and I cannot speak highly enough of the team. They are super friendly, efficient and make the process of booking totally pain free. All of their locations are of a super high standard and little gems continue to appear on the website throughout the year which is fantastic. I could not recommend a lovelier team to work with.
We have been working with Light Locations for years now and choose them for their consistently brilliant selection of locations and total professionalism. We shoot at multiple locations during some weeks of the year for Next Home and find the team always friendly and very helpful in facilitating our sometimes crazy shoot schedule.
Light Locations are always a pleasure to work with, they come back with options very quickly and have a very good choice of locations. All the team are very helpful and friendly.
