Our Top 5 Outdoor Photoshoot Spaces

Sophie Hitchens Sunday 15th May 2022

The outdoor photoshoot spaces at many of our Light Locations are as captivating as their beautiful interiors. So, it’s no surprise that many brands use their external areas to create stunning photographic sets. In particular, outdoor furniture specialists love to use these gorgeous spaces to showcase their wares. 

We’ve picked out five of our favourite outdoor photoshoot spaces. Each comes with its own character, style, and specific features. But one thing they all have in common is their privacy. With each location offering incredibly private outdoor space, clients are safe in the knowledge they won’t be interrupted by curious onlookers.


Our Top Five Outdoor Photoshoot Spaces

The Elms West Sussex

 This stunning silvered timber-clad eco property offers bags of outdoor potential, with the house providing a striking set piece. But the landscaped plot with its natural swimming pool and delightful outdoor dining area completes this incredible setting.

New to the Light Locations portfolio and currently location of the moment, we can’t wait to see how our clients maximise the potential of this outdoor photoshoot space. 


Winchester House, Hampshire 

The garden at this stunning modern house is nothing short of spectacular. Surrounded by a beautiful walled garden, the landscaped haven of contemporary grasses and shrubs is sublime. 

This location is perfect for outside furniture shoots, with lots of people choosing to shoot on the decked areas set against the building’s dark timber exterior. Winchester House also offers a slightly softer, more rustic look around the back of the house, where the beautiful walled garden acts as a favourable backdrop. And of course, we can’t ignore the stunning swimming pool which appeals to many clients.


Cotswold Barn, Wiltshire 

The manicured hedges at this gorgeous, converted barn are deliciously British. But the stunning pool area and pretty, timber-clad pool room hold the strongest appeal, especially when the hydrangeas bloom. Many outdoor furniture brands have set up their outdoor dining sets in front of the pool house with fabulous results. 


Dower House, Buckinghamshire 

Dower House is a laid-back, modern and thoroughly chic photoshoot location. Its expansive open plan living spaces and contemporary colour schemes are a lesson in modern cool. So, it’s no surprise that the external spaces offer the same stylish character. The Californian beach style vibe offers bags of outdoor potential for both furniture and fashion shoots. And people adore the dark, modern appearance of the black cladding and the lovely veranda areas.

Forest House, East Sussex 

People love shooting against the exterior of this remote property. They adore the black cladding, lovely windows, and the intimate decked areas around the house. With access to the extensive forest through the garden gate, the potential of this Light Locations favourite is enormous. 

Drift End, Suffolk 

This rural farmhouse surrounded by wildflower meadows and woodland is a wild and rustic proposition. There are plenty of quirky, ramshackle cabins, outbuildings, and even two shepherd’s huts. It enchants fashion and furniture brands, who love its earthy feel.
