These images are produced when site photography is combined with a 3D rendering of the proposed development. By matching the camera position and lighting of the 3D scene to the site photograph, these images are very effective in demonstrating a proposed development in context with existing buildings.
It is worth noting that photo montages can often be produced more economically than full 3D images and the production of “before and after images” can greatly assist in alleviating any anxiety and opposition for a difficult scheme.
Photomontages are frequently requested by planning authorities as Verified Views in support of a planning application and this will involve a site survey to identify the camera positions and height data of the site. We can produce Verified Views using a stated methodology at different levels of detail ranging from building outlines to photorealistic visuals that are fully matched to the lighting conditions of the site photograph.
