A pair of Leeds-based entrepreneurs have launched a locations agency, which finds residential locations for filming and photography shoots across Yorkshire.
Lifestyle Locations is the brainchild of Louise Bates and Clare Armitage. The pair have already developed an impressive and selective portfolio of stunning locations, which are showcased on their website, from which production managers, photographers and both advertising and media agencies can select their ideal location for a shoot.
Clients can search for properties via the new website for the key features they are looking for to find a perfect fit for their brief. From grand Victorian period properties to homes with modern open-plan interiors, the locations all have one thing in common – style.
And if a client wants an allotment, a garden shed, and a rustic kitchen all in one location, the team will work at speed to identify the most suitable properties to match the brief and budget.
Louise Bates, director at Lifestyle Locations, said: “There is huge demand for quality residential locations in which to host film or photography shoots for everything from advertisements to TV dramas.
“We want to supply the best range of options across Yorkshire primarily, with plans to expand the portfolio of locations into the North West as the business grows.”
The pair pride themselves on, and are committed to, knowing each location owner as well as their property personally within their handpicked location library. It is this knowledge and personal touch which will bring added value to the agency client.
Clare Armitage, director at Lifestyle Locations, said: “Lifestyle Locations has carefully considered its simple pricing strategy to ensure that the locations are both affordable and attractive to clients, whilst financially rewarding location owners.
“We pride ourselves on our relationship management and making the process as streamlined and straightforward as possible for both clients and location owners. We have combined our knowledge of the locations industry, marketing and great relationship management with our passion for interiors. We are very excited about the future.”
Louise has previously worked as a location scout and relationship manager in the industry and combines this with over ten years’ experience in the marketing industry, working both agency and client-side.
Clare’s background is in business partnering and human resources management within large blue-chip companies where business strategy, communication and customer focused relationships are paramount.
