What is this?
Want to impress someone at a cocktail party? Here’s the spiel. Our library is a collection of location photography packages created using HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging), a technology that digitally captures and allows you to edit all the light and reflections in a scene. Paired with each high-resolution background image is all the scene-specific lighting data required to seamlessly place a rendered product into a real environment.
This technology is used most often (though not exclusively) by the automotive industry to apply realistic lighting and reflections to a virtually rendered car in a photographic environment.

Why do you need this?
You need to get a shot of your product with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, with a nice blue sky and puffy white clouds, by next Thursday but the product won’t be available for two weeks and the budget just got reduced again. Sound familiar?
If you’ve been tasked with sourcing the creative, you want high quality options. And, you need confidence that what you get is going to work; it’s going to meet your deadlines and fit your budget.
When you select one of our location packages you can let go of the logistics of organizing a photo shoot and move past the schedule constraints of season or weather. You don’t need to worry that the product is still a prototype. And, you gain the flexibility to feature whatever aspects of the product you want in whatever way you choose.
Along with exceptional location photography we’ve captured all the lighting and reflection information, so you can be confident that your rendered object is going to fit seamlessly in the scene. Every reflection, each secondary shadow is perfectly placed. The final package will be a spectacular, beautifully composed and lit image of your product in an utterly believable real world setting.
