Bear Stock Composition

Budget friendly Compositing License Options

You may only require certain elements from an image and so we offer the cost-effective option of licensing what you need. This offers you the freedom of mixing and matching to create your own image. The end result will not only be unique but without loss of resolution or quality.

Graded v RAW

We’re always happy to offer up RAW files for you to do your own thing but keep in mind – what you see on site is often a pristine version of the reality. Rubbish, building signage, street junk and road signs are all taken care of in our retouching process.

RAW’s or Retouched – your call.

Our Service

Bear Stock Service

We have designed bearstock.com as a user friendly, high quality stock image library aimed at our specialised market being clients in search of stylised location backgrounds and / or 360º HDR domes created especially to be used with 3D / CGI CAD mesh models, to refresh existing assets or for stand alone use.

We’re all about making the Bear Stock experience streamlined and personalised.
We are easy to reach by email or phone + 61 (0) 412 569366

We encourage you to contact us if you require help with:

• An image search.
• A specific grade.
• 2D or 3D post production.
• Schedule or timing challenges.
• Our pricing process.
• General site enquires.
• Commissioned shoots.

File Data

All our images have been lightly graded, retouched, un-necessary signage & rubbish removed – ready to go. By virtue of their 16 bit, 300ppi file size for backplates and 32 bit for 360° HDR Domes you will always have the latitude to adjust the grade and look.

Rights-Managed Stock Photos – what’s the advantage

All images on bearstock.com are rights-managed and are of the highest quality

The advantage of a Bear Stock rights-managed Stock Image can be explained simply as your assurance that the image you have paid for allows the use as specified by your relevant license details. If you require the image for other uses an additional license will need to be purchased.

Our rights-managed licenses can be issued on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis for the duration of your licensing period.
This can be discussed at the point of price negotiation.

Releases & Permits

All images have accompanying Property / Model Releases for unlimited usage where legally required or appropriate.

I have found the perfect image, but it has no HDR dome and I’d like one
Pleased you asked! We offer ‘compatible’ and ‘matching’ HDR domes and in the cases where there is no dome and you require one please get in touch with us and we can take it from there. We will always be happy to commission one of our photographers to take care of this for you where possible.

My layout is a composition and I only need parts of a number of images.
Do I have to pay the full price for each image?

At Bear Stock we are very fair – if you are only using parts of images we don’t expect you pay the full price. You should just advise us of this detail when you submit your form at the quoting stage. Or simply tell us by email approximately how much of the image (in %) you will be using in your layout, or better still send the layout directly to us (in strict confidence) We will then allow for this in our cost estimate to you.

I need RAW files
RAW files are available on request. Feel free to ask.
