Erik Almas has become almost synonymous with beautifully composited landscapes that are not real, and yet our eyes just want to bathe in the scenery as if it somehow was. Recently, Almas was asked by Saatchi LA to work with them and Toyota on an image honoring Nature conservationists. Like many of his projects, that meant that the image would be created from various locations and shots.

Almas says about the project location that the team looked “for truly lush and green environments,” which led to “Olympic National Park in Washington, spending 3 days capturing background plates.” Erik and his crew then captured the talent in a location south of San Francisco that had similar natural features to Seattle. Almas stated “this so that we could seamlessly blend our talent into the background.”

And simply because we love his work and the imaginative concept behind the project for the French company Dassault Systemes, we wanted to be sure you took a look at this series as well. Again, you can see how Almas maintains his artistic signature style while bringing together a great image for his commercial client.
