About Us     back to top

Founded in 2004, CGIBackgrounds.com is here to provide a broader range of options than just your average, "middle-of-the road" pictures. We specialize in offering the creative essence of photographic environments for the express purpose of showcasing vehicles. Simply put, we love shooting roads. We love road shooters. And we love our clients who love road photography as much as we do.

Today's auto manufacturers are able to render virtual vehicles into photographic environments. CGIBackgrounds.com meets this distinctive industry with rights-managed photography that takes you straight to where you need to go. No more weeding through "mega-sites" with time consuming inconsistent results. We are the #1 creative source for rights managed road and moving scenic photographs; from dark to daylight.

Our clients can render or strip their vehicles into our backgrounds with substantial savings over traditional methods. In fact, CGI provides three types of imagery for licensing: 2D backgrounds to composite with existing vehicles, HDRI lighting and reflective domes to assist in the rendering of virtual vehicles into 2D backgrounds, and 360 degree HDRI virtual world environments for 3D web applications. In addition, we offer directed stock, virtual shoots, and assignment photography from our worldwide member base of talented photographers.

From advertising agencies, design firms, rendering studios, web agencies and manufacturer design groups and marketing companies, our clients represent a worldwide audience.

As seemingly commonplace as streets, highways, paths, and crossroads may be, roads have an ability to inspire and transport people's imagination. Roads take you someplace. They can be used to enhance a business, send a message, illustrate a point, convey a concept or instill an idea. That's why we're here. CGIBackgrounds' fabulous collection of roads has grown to over 65,000 road images from around the world.

When all you really want is a perfect road, then you've already stumbled upon the shortcut to your ultimate destination. Get there faster with CGIBackgrounds!
