The JJ media complex forms it’s own ‘Shoreditch Triangle’, having established itself across three sites just minutes apart. As the ever growing creative capital of London, we’re proud to call Shoreditch our home.
One day Johnny was born. A few years later he established Motordrive Location Co, providing location vehicles for photographic and film shoots. He also scouted and location managed photo shoots and the Johnny Jones Location empire started to build brick by brick. The name was eventually shortened to JJ Locations and the website was born. The library was converted into digital online content, lovely, friendly staff were taken on board and rusty fax machines were replaced with 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
Josh Jones joined the family business and JJ Locations moved offices to the courtyard oasis of Perseverance Works in Shoreditch, an area of designers, creatives and East London sceners! JJ Locations opened their first location studio and the idea for The Shoreditch was born over a dinner party with friends after too many After Eights, while overlooking the courtyard in 2008.
Six months later, after being arm deep in vintage furniture shops, overseeing a team of dedicated craftsmen, and extensive renovation work, The Shoreditch Location Studios launched with a bang in April 2009 with its second studio space.
The beautiful and emotional birth of the The Shoreditch LOFT and ROOF studios heralded a new era of London’s premier studio spaces, with ZONE joining the action on the 1st August 2009. In August 2010 the amazing BASE completed the successful collection of boutique and designer location studios which are all owned and managed by JJ Locations.
2012 saw JJ embrace all that is modern, giving way to the JJ rebrand and a new website. The JJ brand is now home to four beloved studios: BASE, LOFT, ROOF and ZONE. As well as continuing as the well-known and hugely successful location agency, JJ now offers a full lighting, catering and digital service.
In August 2013 JJ acquired Sarah Eastel Locations who, along with the very talented Emma Clarke-Bolton, have now been relocated to our Shoreditch office. SEL bought a wealth of new locations and clients to the table and also meant that it was time to move into a bigger office. We also got our hands on a new studio after months of development and design and were happy to announce the opening of HOME.
April 2015 saw the addition of a fifth studio to the JJ collection in the form of AREA. This 2,100 sq ft studio is a fresh, double-height space adding a new look to the JJ studio portfolio. Talking of new looks – this year ZONE underwent a sleek makeover, incorporating elements of Scandinavian minimalism into its neutral palette. We were also delighted to announce our new exclusive collection – a handpicked selection of properties from our portfolio which are now solely represented by JJ.
In June 2016 we were thrilled to announce the acquisition of SNAP Studios and ThreeFour Lighting and Camera Hire. All together JJ now spans 30,000 sq ft, comprising 10 bespoke spaces in Shoreditch, a full stock of lighting and camera equipment, and a 2000 strong location library. The acquisition marks an exciting redirection of JJ as a brand. The newly forged JJ Media Group encompasses JJ Locations, JJ Studios, JJ Equipment and JJ Events, each driven forward by its own dedicated and experienced team. We look forward to welcoming clients new and old to our unparalleled selection of fully-serviced studios.
