Baldwin Production Services is a full service custom location scouting and library service based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
"Our concept to completion services begin with custom file pulls, follow up research and field scouting, permitting, and on-site location management.
We work primarily in commercials, stills, and advertising events, from huge Super Bowl projects to small product and lifestyle branding shoots.
We scout everything, and maintain a huge library of private and public properties, from yurts to palaces, cities to desert. We travel anywhere, for as long as needed, with a sense of urgency fuelled by coffee, adrenaline, and the thrill of production."

Baldwin Production Services, Inc location service and scouts
“My dad was a director-cameraman in New York, my uncle a career editor at CBS news for 30 years for Walter Cronkite and Charles Kurrault, and the women in my life are powerful. I was fortunate to have a strong education, and I came alone to California with a camera, darkroom experience, and a backpack.
I started as a printer in a huge commercial graphics shop, printing 8 x 10-foot advertising photographs. I joined freelance production in my early 20s as a PA and location assistant with great mentors, and after several years in huge features and commercials, I was drawn deeply into the rapidly evolving print industry. My storytelling and production methodology translated well from motion into stills, as catalogues exploded and lifestyle became a thing.
The State of California and some major clients recognised my early work collecting and cataloguing locations, and quickly BPS became the largest and most diverse location library in Northern California. I continue to scout every day, building the location files at night.
I have always loved the rush and urgency of our work, the quirky asks, the deadlines. Every project is unique and sudden, and new challenges are exciting and satisfying, particularly because we can meet them quickly based on our experience and wide-ranging contacts. I love to shoot, solve puzzles, and make introductions. I love to explore, and meet people. My clients are my friends.”
