APEX | Official Photo Studio Gallery Thread



This thread will be used to show off our professional studio shoots in our recently finished, in-house cyclorama studio.
One of APEX’s primary goals has always been quality photography. We understand that pictures offer information that can rarely be articulated in words. Our older photography was shot in our industrial complexes with distracting backgrounds out of necessity. We wanted more, and we grew tired of taking photos that lacked any style, so last year we set out to build a 3,600 sq. ft. in-house photo studio. The APEX studio took six months to erect and boasts a three walled, infinite-white cyclorama with 5’ curves in all corners. All of this is lit by one of the largest Chimera lightbanks on the west coast, and numerous cyclorama wall lights.



The entire shooting area is surrounded with cinema grade blackout curtains which eliminate all outside light, and unwanted reflections. Opposite of the white cyclorama is a pitch black, concrete-floored area where we can take clean, elegant, light-painted photos. With all these features we’re able to take extremely detailed, awe-inspiring photos for your viewing enjoyment and education.

Below we will post interesting photos, and complete sets we’ve taken in the studio along with some details on each featured car.

Volunteer your car:
APEX is always looking for volunteer cars to test fit product on, and to feature in photoshoots shoot in our cyclorama studio. We're looking for cars local to the San Francisco Bay Area. For more information and to participate, please contact us.

Shoot #1: BMW E92 M3

This tastefully modified, dual-duty BMW E92 M3 in Alpine White belongs to a friend of ours. A full list of modifications can be found listed below. He brought the car by to test fit our prototype 19” non-track oriented setups. We wheeled it around our studio all day as a test subject for various lighting and camera setups. We didn’t get many “artsy” or “stylized” shots in, but we’re really happy with our front , rear , and side profile angles.

Exterior:
  • Vorsteiner Carbon Lip Spoiler
  • Challenge Race Carbon Diffuser
  • Dinan Exhaust with single-wall tips
  • Black and carbon Roundel Badges
  • Black Fender Side Grills
Interior:
  • Black with Carbon Leather Trim
Suspension:
  • Dinan Stage 1 Suspension Kit
Wheels and Tires:
  • Front: EC-7 19x9.5” ET22 Race Silver with Hankook V12 - 265/30/19
  • Rear: EC-7 19x10.5” ET22 Race Silver with Hankook V12 - 295/30/19

Awesome studio! The white e92 looks similar to mine with EC7's. Too bad I didn't take any pics before swapping them out!
