Meet the Team: Locations & Production
In today's blog we're meeting the wonderful locations & production team that is Emma & Rhiannon! As well as representing models, actors & influencers we also represent stunning film & photographic locations across the UK. The locations team work to source on-brief locations for our clients and negotiate the best rate for both our location owners and our clients. The team also offer full production services which keeps them super busy making sure the whole production team, locations and props are booked for shoots as well as catering, accomodation and much more to ensure the shoot runs smoothly from start to finish.
With over 20 years experience in booking and producing, Emma has recently taken on the role of Client Account Manager working alongside Rhiannon! Emma is constantly busy working on client enquiries, building relationships with location owners & clients and seeing production jobs through from first enquiry to the finished product which is so rewarding.
Emma started out her career at a TV Production company and originally joined SR as a Junior Booker, then Head Booker for over a decade! Remembering hundreds of model and client telephone numbers by heart is only one of her many skills and we are looking forward to the day she can backflip across the office as acrobatics is the thing she would love to learn to do!
Becoming a mother is Emma's proudest achievement and being married to one of our favourite photographers means that her job never really stops. She relaxes by running to very loud house music and is happiest with her family by the sea, possibly camping and preferably in Ibiza. As one of the most positive people we know, Emma hates negativity and bad manners in others and says the best thing about working at SR is "our gorgeous and fabulous team - my second family".
Location Scout Rhiannon has just had her 1 year anniversary at SR! Joining the team just before lockdown 1.0, Rhiannon has spent more time at home than in the office the past 12 months but has loved all the chats and fun we've had on Zoom & Slack over the past year and is very happy to be back in the office finally. Working alongside Emma, Rhiannon works on client bookings for locations but also works to source incredible locations across the UK to offer to our clients for a whole host of briefs for fashion, interiors, lifestyle and so much more... She loves that no two days are the same, it's always super busy and she gets to use her organisational skills with many a spreadsheet for her and Emma to share.
When Rhiannon started at SR we asked her what her goals were for 2020... she told us she would love to have a puppy of her own one day and was aiming to do 'Dry 2020'. We now have the absolute pleasure of playing with Rhi's puppy Grace in the studio when she comes to visit and can confirm Rhiannon did a whole year without a glass of prosecco or a cocktail last year (how did she do it?!)
In her spare time she loves walking her pup, renovating her new house and having a Sunday evening pamper session before a busy week ahead. Her favourite thing about her job is sourcing and visiting amazing locations and getting all the interiors inspo for her own home, making every day full of inspiration.
