Our story
1987 - 2004

One day Johnny was born. A few years later he established Motordrive Location Co which provided location vehicles for photographic and film shoots. Being the multi-tasker he is, he also scouted and location managed photo shoots and the ... Johnny Jones Location Empire started to build brick by brick. Of course, back in the day this comprised negatives, prints and a trusty fax machine. Times and technology moved on, and in the process the company name was shortened to jj Locations and the website was born. The library was converted to digital online content, lovely, friendly staff were taken on board and the fax machine was replaced by shiny new Apple macs. The jj empire well and truly established itself as a well loved and respected location agency, finding locations for photo shoots, TV, films, music videos, commercials, press launches and media events.

In August 2013 jj acquired Sarah Eastel Locations who, along with the very talented Emma Clarke-Bolton, have now been relocated to our office in Shoreditch.
