Los Angeles Stock Footage Philosophy

Is there such a thing as “the perfect Los Angeles stock footage shot”?

We think there is and we are constantly trying to discover it! What sets us apart from other stock footage sources is the way we photograph and compose multiple shots from the same location that allow you to select the best composition and time of day for your projects unique aesthetics. From wide shots, close ups, day, night, magic hour and time lapse you will not find a better single resource of Los Angeles stock footage. See Our Entire Collection on our – Homepage.

The length of our Los Angeles stock footage clips are longer than most stock footage providers. Clip lengths depend on the action taking place within the shot. Traffic lights & vehicle patterns, changing weather conditions, metro trains, camera slider movement or “in camera zooms” all effect how we select our final clip lengths. This lets our clients select the the best “sweet spot” within the clip for a more personalized stock footage experience.

We return to the same locations several times during the year to capture various camera angles, times of day, weather conditions and traffic & pedestrian congestion. Over 90% of our clips are available in both 4K (UHD 3840×2160) and full HD (1920×1080) in 23.98 to satisfy current network and new original programming finishing requirements. Our clips are available after purchase via emailed download links.
