Since several months, our Shanghai studio team is working on a 3D rendering, photography and retouching solution, which we are very excited about as we plan to launch it to the market shortly. In brief, we will be using room scenes built in 3D (instead of conventional room scene building), and use those virtual scenes as ambiance backdrops when shooting our customer's products. The composed photomontages look very real, and the average age won't be able to tell if the scene was actually built in 3D! See below for a key visual we created:
This solution allows us to shoot your products in various ambiance settings and lifestyle situations, be it modern European apartment room scenes, an American town house or a South-East Asian beach villa.
Please contact us anytime should you be interested!
Check out this little video showing some behind the scene footage of our just recent and latest location photography shoot in Dallas/TX, which we managed for one of our main customers, a large retailers of the U.S. We casted and ended up using multiple professional and semi-professional adult and children models, stylists, make-up artists, location scouts, producers, etc.

Rimagine MD Lorenz was invited by the German Chamber of Shanghai to give a speech on Sep 24th about the topic "how to start, grow and sell a company in China". The restaurant "To The Sea" provided a beautiful backdrop for the little event, which welcomed about 40 attendees. The second speaker of the night was Nathan Kaiser from EIGER Law, a lawyer specialized on this topic. The host and moderator was Andrea Cristancho from ChassPort Consulting.
Lorenz shared with the audience how he co-founded Rimagine and grew it to one of China's leading photography companies, managing a team of commercial photographers and retouchers in Shanghai, and after eight years becoming part of the packaging design and production company YFYJupiter. Below some snapshots of the event (provided by the German chamber).

We are currently in the middle of a large room scene shoot which we do for one of our associated ad agency partners - this time it is for a leading Chinese kitchen appliance brand. The set is massive and consists of a full-sized living room and connected kitchen scene. We can not show any images of the sets, just some random behind the scene shots taken with our phone camera. The team consists of our photographer David, producer Victor, retoucher LJ, one Caucasian model, one hair-and-make-up-artist, one food stylist and several runners and assistants. We will post some images once we got official confirmation from our customer, which is an Italian creative agency!
There’s a reason why we call the people who work with us 'talents', rather than 'employees'. Just look at John’s – our Dallas photographer – most recent passion work. It takes TALENT to titivate such commonly used, uninteresting and aesthetically dull things. Who knew apple boxes, electrical tape and battery clamps could look so cool? Now that’s what we call ARTistic.
We are very excited to finally have received our brand-new set of Elinchrom lights, which from now on are available for all of our high-end shoots, especially when we do fashion, beauty or above-the-line jobs! The Swiss equipment brand is known and widely respected for its very consistent flash power and its fast recycling speeds, paired with top precision and stability!
In total, we got 2x RX 2,400 Power Packs, 4x Pro 2,400w mono light head (of the RX series!) and 10x FX 600w flash lights.
We just finished up a not so ordinary shoot for DOWNTOWN, a European magazine covering aesthetic mobility, lifestyle and quality of life topics. Led by the two magazine editors and one representative of a leading bike brand, we went over to the offices of JWT, a leading ad agency and fellow customer of our Shanghai studio, and photographed Terence, creative director, in this case one of thir testimonials who is a enthusiastic biker himself. Below are some of the behind the scene shots of the photo shoot, and the entire magazine, courtesy of DOWNTOWN. Big thanks to Max-Philipp, Robin and Florian for the great shoot and cooperation!
