    Hi My name is Ken Hawkins. My email address is and I’m on mobile number 07831611308. I’ve scouted the area before and I know the town. I’m not sure when you are planning to shoot but I can understand your concerns about tourist areas. It is a classic regency town and very popular during the summer months.

    Hello Gemma
    I’ve lived 30min from Cheltenham over 20 years and LM’d a feature there and in the near countryside. On a recent stills shoot on a Gloucestershire farm I was amazed that the photographer wanted to know precisely where I had taken my recce shots and framed his picture for the campaign exactly like one of mine. The director of a recent promo asked for one of my photos for his website and today’s suprise, on day 1 of a drama shoot, was the producer asking me to take the publicity photos!
    From also working outside the industry I have found bits of backstreet Cheltenham like a garage which is a complete throw-back to the 1950s. I recently helped devise a photographic tour of Cheltenham for a council-backed body. I’ve tried to send 4 stills, all in or near Cheltenham, some being old recce stuff, but ‘exceeded maximum size’. So these are just two. Would love to work with you!

    Gemma, I should have left you my contact details: 07939 042361! Rob Champion


    Not sure if you are still looking but I’m a Location scout living in Cheltenham! If you’re still looking or need to reccie anywhere in SW, please contact me.

    Keep well
