Wisconsin's most trusted location scouting service



Location Services You Can Trust

Milwaukee is more than beer, Harley’s, Summerfest and Happy Days. No one knows that better than Dave La Haye. The City of Milwaukee trusted Dave to capture the heart of the Cream City for 30 years, photographing its people, places, events and culture. Now Dave shares his breadth of knowledge and photography expertise finding locations for clients like Microsoft, Duluth Trading Company, Harley-Davidson, Mercedes Benz, Reebok, and more.

Reliably Efficient



Everything you need

Dave connects clients with the fresh takes on Milwaukee’s greatest features and the overlooked, under appreciated sides of the city. Vogue calls Milwaukee the coolest and most underrated city in the Midwest. Dave can show you why. His local knowledge of Milwaukee and the surrounding areas leaves no stone unturned, and no abandoned warehouse forgotten. Whatever your location needs may be - urban, suburban, rural or on the water - Dave knows where to look.


Milwaukee - a hidden gem

In addition to location scouting, Dave La Haye has spent the majority of his professional career photographing Milwaukee. While his familiarity with the city's well-known areas is important, his vast knowledge of Milwaukee's more obscure corners is what guarantees you'll find what you're looking for, and we've got the photos to prove it.

In fact, all photos on this site are Dave La Haye originals. 




I was challenged with finding snow covered roads to shoot footage of a new vehicle within a very short time frame.  I hired Dave as our location scout/manager for our winter footage shoot in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He provided us with many locations to choose from, which made for a very successful production.  I was very pleased with Dave's professionalism, and easy going disposition. I would recommend him to anyone as a location scout/manager

I was fortunate enough to find David when I was in a pinch. I was in from Los Angeles and had a shoot in Milwaukee that had to be done on a tight timeline and budget. David came through on time and budget with great professionalism. I highly recommend him and his team. He is the go to guy in the Wisconsin area and I will gladly work with him again.

Real Appeal

I scouted Milwaukee locations with Dave La Haye for the film Public Enemies, directed by Michael Mann and starring
Johnny Depp & Christian Bale.  I can attest to the fact that Dave was professional in every way, and very easy to work with, as well as very knowledgeable about Milwaukee locations. I would definitely recommend Dave as a location manager/scout.

I had the pleasure working with David La Haye recently on some properties we needed photographed in the midwest...on a VERY tight deadline. He accommodated our requests, kept in constant contact throughout the entire process, and offered a high degree of professionalism while delivering high quality photos. We look forward to working with him on future projects.
