We're unique!

We see locations from every angle

We work closely with everyone involved in the location industry:

  • Production Companies
  • Location Managers
  • Location Owners

We understand the needs of these groups and it's our goal to make life easier for all parties.

So if you're a location owner, looking to maximise income for your property through filming, or a location manager or production manager looking for the best possible range of location options within your budget, The Collective offers you a unique, new approach to location management.

Our location library

Most location libraries consist of properties sourced through in-house location scouts or by inviting members of the public to send in images of their property.

We use these methods too, but the majority of the locations in our library are submitted to us by our location manager members, from their own individual portfolios, often on an exclusive basis.

That's why on The Collective website you'll find thousands of fresh, untouched locations, updated on a daily basis, scouted and assessed by professional location managers.

Our members' portfolios

Our location manager members know what makes a great location.  In the course of scouting they find some fantastic, unknown properties and bring them to us, to market to the location industry for filming and photography. 

With our huge database of industry contacts The Collective can create awareness and interest for a wide range of properties with filming or photographic potential.

We're delighted to reward our members for this constant supply of new locations by offering a royalty every time one of the locations they have discovered is hired.  Find out more about our location manager commission system here...
