We see ourselves as a collective of international photographers offering high quality cgi backplates.

CGI (computer generated images) or CG is a technique to use the capabilities of 3D technology to create new image worlds or put products into already existing images ( so called "CGI Backplates").

As we have been doing professional CGI Photography for several years we know all the processes and what it takes to create cg artwork. We can serve you with hi-res HDRI-Spheres (also called HDR Domes), perfect cgi backplates and backgrounds and we also can help you with positioning the virtual car.

And with the help of our partners at VIRTUAL RIG STUDIO we can convert all our static images into speeding ones, just as you like.


VirtualRig™ Studio software creates realistic curved motion blur simulation previously only available with expensive camera rigs. VirtualRig™ drastically reduces the cost of professional car photography, cuts production time and brings new opportunities into CGI photography.

Thanks to our partners at Virtual Rig we can offer you to add motion blur to any of our static images or adjust the speed in blurred images.


Time is money! It might be a bit too much to look through our huge archive. But we are happy to help you. We know our archive, the backplates and categories like no one else because it’s us that created them. So if you need help finding your images just send us an e-mail and we will come back to you as fast as possible!
