Looking for a Cool Location for Your Next Shoot? These Guys Hunt Down the Places From TV and Cinema

While we are all talking about the Oscars I thought now would be a good time to share this fascinating blog with you. Not only are these images great fun but I actually think this website is incredibly useful for any photographers who are looking for cool locations.

Enter stage left: Tiia Öhman and Satu Walden who photograph real movie places alongside screenshots from the actual film and showcase them on their website.

These guys have visited locations all over the world to stand exactly where the Hollywood greats have. Instead of a clapper board they bring along an iPad with the images from the film and while Walden holds the tablet Öhman lines everything up and photographs the event.

It's really interesting to see what was cropped out of the original and the guys have done a great job in getting everything spot on with alignment and position. I also think that as photographers/videographers their blog could be hugely useful when scouting for your next shoot as the locations of the places are usually included with the pictures.

If you've been struggling to find the perfect place for your next blockbuster or you'd just love to recreate something from your favorite film, their Instagram and blog are well worth checking out.

Have you shot in any famous movie locations? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.

I really like the idea, and after all the people who picks those place in the first place are the Directors of Photography, no wonder why they are photogenic :)

Exactly! if it's good enough for them then its good enough for us!
