Founded in 2002 out of the San Francisco Bay Area, Import Image consist mainly of auto enthusiasts that are also experienced freelance photographers and videographers.  They believed that their skills and talents in the multimedia forum can be applied to the growing auto-aftermarket industry.

By applying numerous years of knowledge and experience of this growing culture and in the media genre of video and photography, Import Image will be able to create new and exciting projects as well as business opportunities (and partnerships) that they believe this growing market will embrace.


Import Image continues to provide media content of photos, video & articles to several media outlets especially to those located in the San Francisco Bay Area and/or focused in the auto aftermarket industry.
