…the before & after

Proposed development plans set against the backdrop of a real photograph for interior or exterior projects.

2D architectural proposal drawings transformed into a 3D render & seamlessly superimposed onto a photograph of the current environment.

Developers in the commercial, residential & leisure sectors use Joanna James Photomontage to support planning applications & illustrate design ideas.


Typical project price example:

  • First view at c. £500+vat
  • Each additional view required at £250+vat

Prices are based on size & complexity of project. ie – A large industrial project or housing development proposal will cost more than a single dwelling.



Interior photomontages are powerful tool that allow designers and clients to visualize and explore potential interior design concepts. By combining realistic photographs of existing spaces with proposed design elements, photomontages create a compelling and immersive representation of how a room or space will look after renovation or redecoration.


The exterior photomontage is perfect for projects wanting the most realistic look and feel to their project. It allows for the proposed scheme to be seamlessly superimposed upon the backdrop of a photograph of the existing environment and context. Particularly useful for planning permission application and especially in high density areas such as towns, cities, industrial and commercial backdrops.


2x photomontages to show impact of proposal on the existing built environment and immediate environs. Client provided both eye level and aerial drone capture photography as well as proposal 2D DWGs and material schedule.

  • 2x Photomontages
  • Turnaround 5 working days
  • £795+vat total
