As a company we now have a number of car shoots under our belt, working with our car specialist John, and other specialists we have recently produced shoots for Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Vauxhall and VW. John has a zillion years of experience behind him in cars, and we as a production company boast some of the best production experience in the UK.
We can take you to some of the most iconic roads in the UK, as well as much more discreet and secret spots across SCOTLAND, ENGLAND and WALES.
Because of our structure, we can bring you super speedy service, quick turnarounds and competitive prices. Send us your brief and we'll prove it!!
Wales has without doubt some of the most dramatic landscape in the UK, and some of the most unusual and interesting architecture. Not to mention the myriad of forgotten corners, hitherto untouched by production kind! Here is a small selection of some of our recent wanderings across this diverse and welcoming land. Not far from London and the other production bases of Manchester, Bristol and of course Cardiff - Wales can offer much of what Scotland has to offer, only without burning a hole in your budget!
We are delighted to announce a new location partnership with the Althorp Estate. Set in the tranquil privacy of its walled 550-acre parkland, Althorp has been the country residence of the Spencer family for more than 500 years. This classically English corner of Northamptonshire is a matchless setting, studded with captivating, photogenic features offering unique possibilities for both filming and photography.
Althorp is one of the most beautiful stately homes in England, showcasing one of Europe’s finest private collections of furniture, paintings and ceramics in this magnificent, yet warm family home. Besides the obvious beauty of the house and stable block, Althorp also has numerous unusual buildings and landscapes within the park walls as well as in the wider 13,000 acre estate.
The Estate is now open to filming and stills requests through us here at GBPC, and is open all year around barring other events and festivals hosted at the house. There are a number of bedrooms available for shoot-and-stay options, and the Earl’s private chef can also be made available for catering requirements.
Here at GBPC we have worked on many a whisky campaign. We can take you to some of the most photogenic distilleries in Scotland, and help you expand your story beyond them to the traditional supply trades such as copper stills manufacture, coopers, barley farmers, maltings and grain stores.
Because we understand the business, and know the people, we can make your shoot happen quickly and efficiently. We provide a sensitive link between the whisky marketing teams and the local people who actually make the stuff.
We love London, we love the UK. Come and shoot here in 2015, and you'll feel the same. Here's to a happy and successful 2015.
We have a new London HQ, slap bang in the middle of town. Pop in!
The lovely team from ELLE Germany visited the beautiful Devon shores this summer to shoot a number of stories including this excellent set by Carl Bengtsson. We looked after the team while they were here, provided local production facilities, transport, crew and of course... locations.
We were commissioned by Don Productions in London to source, secure and manage all locations and unit bases for this fabulous EOS 70D ad shot over 4 days in Scotland. We had a great time and loved working with the teams from Japan and the UK.
Have a great holiday season people, thanks for making 2013 such a good start, and remember we are here to assist in 2014 whether your production is a bit showy-offy or somewhat more subtle, we would love to help you out either way! x
We were fortunate enough this month to provide locations for a large TVC project on the Western Isles of Scotland, including these magnificent and ancient stones, which are over a thousand years older than England's famous Stone Henge. It also gave us the chance to explore other parts of the islands, wow, so much...!
Our lady in the south west of England, Poppy, scouted and line-produced the latest Missoni A/W advertising stills shoot, shot in her native Cornwall at the start of the summer. Much to the astonishment of the Italian clients and photographer, all of our four seasons were repsresented at one point or another over the course of the two day shoot! But I think you'll agree the shots look amazing...
Our roads portfolio is steadily growing with these great new shots just in from our scout Kirsty. Check out the roads section on the location ideas drop-down and you'll see we now have a great diversity of fantastic roads around the UK. So if you're looking for car ads, road-trip photography or just fancy a pootle around the country on a Sunday afternoon... we can help.
Now that we're up and running we thought we'd introduce a news page which is a little more interesting than the general twitterings found on the social links we already have. Here we will attempt to give you a bit more info about what we're doing, and we'll also highlight new work as it comes in.
We thought we'd start off by outlining a recent reccie for a Japanese client we undertook in Islay. A fabulous island off the west coast of scotland full to brimming with whisky and wonderful locations. Not to mention the islanders, who were to a man, woman and child among the most firendly and helpful people you're likely to meet. Here are a few of the shots which are now scattered across the Location Ideas section of this site.
