Our Story

Established in 2007 in London, we started with just a small portfolio of location houses and a pocket book of contacts. 12 years on and Shootfactory is an industry name, working with a portfolio of more than 700 locations and an enviable client list boasting some of the world’s most exciting brands.

Known for our high quality locations, every listing you’ll see in our portfolio has been individually selected from thousands of applications, and our years of experience (42 collectively!) has culminated in a process which is proven to be the most effective way of pairing our clients’ requirements with the most exceptional locations.

Our website and operations have all been designed by our in house team, and with great attention to how our clients work. The website is easy to navigate, and contains just as much information as necessary to showcase our incredible portfolio of locations, and (if we do say so ourselves) it looks pretty good too.

Shootfactory is a team effort, and with strong family values. Coming from all manner of professional backgrounds, we are a collective of creative minds each with strong organisational skills and a genuine desire to nurture lasting relationships with our clients. Every member of our team brings a different quality to the operations, and we’re pretty sure we’ve cracked it with this bunch.

I always enjoy working with the Shootfactory team because everyone there is so professional, knowledgable and friendly. Shootfactory make the process of using my house for shoots incredibly easy and transparent, and they are always happy to help with advice and support when it’s needed, which is very reassuring as the homeowner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Shootfactory to anyone thinking of using their property as a shoot location!

We have worked regularly with ShootFactory over the past 9 years – they have a great selection of locations, and the team are really helpful and quick to respond to enquiries. Ryan looks after us really well and does his very best to secure the right locations for our projects. The website is easy to navigate and the pictures are very clear.

Shootfactory are an amazing agency to work with. Their representation makes you feel so comfortable with having people using your home. Their communication is fantastic – from putting your property up for an assignment, to arranging the recce and then keeping you updated throughout. They always work to get you the best daily rate and ensure that all invoices are paid promptly.

I couldn’t recommend Shoot Factory more highly, they are so efficient, knowledgeable, honest and nothing is ever too much trouble.
I work with them on a wide range of projects and publications and they have always got the location we are looking for, however complicated the brief is.
Lauren Clarke, John Brown Media

I have worked with shoot factory for many years and always find the whole experience very enjoyable. I am an interior consultant/stylist and regularly use shootfactory to source locations. The website is easy to use and if you do not have much time they will happily send a selection of locations over once briefed, which is time saving. I would highly recommend their services.

In my job as a Picture Editor I use Shootfactory regularly to find lovely locations for Editorial shoots. They are always incredibly helpful, friendly and a joy to work with. They have a great range of properties and their website is well designed and user friendly. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a location.

Thank you Shootfactory.
