Filming and photography locations agency launch by Leeds entrepreneurs

A pair of Leeds-based entrepreneurs have launched a locations agency which finds residential locations for filming and photography shoots across Yorkshire.

Lifestyle Locations, set up by Louise Bates and Clare Armitage, offers a portfolio of locations which are showcased on the website, from which production managers, photographers and both advertising and media agencies can select their ideal location for a shoot.

Bates 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.”

Armitage added: “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.”

Bates 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.

Armitage’s background is in business partnering and human resources management within large blue-chip companies.
