Who are we? - 1st Option, the London shoot locations agency, which was established in 2001 and is now in its 12th year of representing the very best residential and commercial shoot locations in the country. We've built up a great reputation over the years for being knowledgeable, professional, efficient, caring and extremely nice to work with.

What makes us good? - Coming from a photographic and filming background, we understand what makes a good location from the photographer's, filmmaker's and client's perspective whether they are being used for stills shoots, film or TV. We understand the importance of light and space and focus on only showcasing the best properties available. If a location, however lavish, isn't shoot-friendly, you won't find it on our site!

You will, however, find many amazing shoot locations, whether it's a house, apartment, warehouse, factory, bar, restaurant, beach house, studio or entertainment space, if it's cool and works for shoots then we'll have it.

How can we help you? - We pride ourselves in offering the highest level of customer service and strive to give the best help and advice to clients and property owners through every stage of the shoot process. We also have close working relationships with other reputable London location agencies, so if by chance we don't have the shoot location you're looking for we can usually find it for you with one phone call.

How good is the site? - The 1st Option web site uses the latest technologies currently available. We're the only agency that showcases our location images full-screen, our advanced search facility lets you drill down to the exact shoot criteria you're looking for and view images of just the selected features, you can order catering for your shoot direct from the site and the light box lets you save whole locations or individual images and send them on to your colleagues and friends.

What else do we do? - 1st Option also represents a carefully chosen selection of top interior and fashion stylists and hair & makeup artists, helping you to organise all of your photo shoot needs in one convenient place! You can view all of the artists portfolios full-screen too, which hopefully saves planetary resources by not needing couriers to transport books around London and saves you time on go-sees as well...

Call us! - Whatever your shoot needs, feel free to call us here at 1st Option. For peace of mind you can always get hold of us, at the office during the working day or on our mobiles out of hours. Whether you're a client organising a photo or film shoot or a potential owner considering offering your property as a shoot location, call us anytime and we'll be happy to help.
