Tips for Location House Owners

1 – clean and tidy – please make sure all your personal belongings are put away!  Don’t forget to hide that pile of ironing.

2 – provide teas and coffees to the team, it makes them feel welcome and at ease.

3 – cover with material your items that may easily stain or get damaged; the team can easily remove any cover for the shot that they need.

4 – make sure you understand what areas of the home are required and what they will be doing there; ask your location agent as they will know; it makes you less anxious.

5 – make sure you give the client your mobile number so that the client may contact you if they cannot find something.


Have a great shoot and enjoy location work!
