We are Rockhunter

About Rockhunter

For 18 years we have provided illustration services for architects, interior designers, property developers, property agents and marketing consultancies in planning, design development and marketing of architecture and interior design. We add value to every stage of the production from early feasibility studies and AVRs right through to marketing collateral and immersive VRs.


Our planning images successfully communicate the proposal to planners, architects, investors, stakeholders and the public. Compliant with LVMF and Landscape Institute EIA guidelines, we provide services key to progressing projects from paper to reality.


As a key component of the imaging process we strive to keep all photography in house. This opens the opportunity for creative direction and artistic freedom to deliver on our client’s vision. We expand our expertise by cooperating with aerial specialists (both drone and helicopter) to succeed in delivering any scenario.


Working closely with creative agencies, architects and interior designers we aspire to create both emotive and engaging imagery. Through a holistic approach to the entire project, we create work that is faithful to our client’s brand and market adding tangible value to all projects.

360 & Immersive VR

Using fixed nodal points, we create immersive tours which can be viewed as 360 panoramas on your desktop, tablet or mobile or stereoscopically through headsets.

Rock Hunter have been our first point of contact when we or one of our clients has needed a visualisation. We have been working with them for over a decade at every stage. Our brief can vary from a small detail to define the quality of the design, through to a major project that will redefine part of a City. Regardless of size or complexity they have always understood exactly what we require and they have delivered
