This is where the magic happens
Words Nadia Abraham
Whether shooting for film or TV, music videos, or the pages of fashion magazines, the location is at the heart of the image. London agency JJ Media is an industry secret, with a vast library of over 2000 locations from disused warehouses, to working churches, grand architectural gems, and everyday family homes.
Founded by Johnny Jones in 1987, the agency became a family affair with the joining of his son Josh in 2005, and along the way there have been acquisitions of other agencies to bolster its resources and reputation. These days JJ Media encompasses studios, locations, events and equipment, with a team of over 20 experts in image creation.
Here are just a few of their diverse locations available for hire.
This late Victorian terrace has beautiful original features including ceiling roses, stained glass, and a dramatic 3 storey staircase. The monochrome colour scheme is complemented by details such as bespoke steel bannisters and a brass island, a concrete floor with brass inlay, and grid style Crittal windows.
St Giles’ Church
St Giles’ is the parish church for Camberwell, in south-east London. It is a wonderful grade II* listed building designed by George Gilbert-Scott (who also designed St Pancras Station, the Albert Memorial and Glasgow University) with stained glass windows designed by John Ruskin. It is a great example of an early, neo-gothic, Victorian church and one of the largest in south London.
