Cinematic Pictures Group brings together rare talent and experience for photography, publishing, & production.



Founded by award winning director TJ Scott and internationally renowned photographer Dennys Ilic, the Los Angeles-based media collective is best known for exquisitely produced large format photography books featuring fan-favorite TV Shows and stunning actor portraits. 


Whatever the subject and whatever the price – from $20 to $10,000 – the company strives to treat every topic with the same respect, and to produce, design, and package each of its products beautifully and uniquely.



TJ Scott is best known for his award-winning directing prowess of the hottest TV series on air (Star Trek, Frontier, Gotham, Bates Motel, Queen of the South, Dark Matter, Orphan Black, 12 Monkeys, The Strain, Spartacus, Longmire, Black Sails, Hemlock Grove, Constantine to name a few), but also carries a strong passion for photography.

This was best realized with the highly successful 2014 release of his coffee-table book “In the Tub”. This book is jam-packed with a veritable who’s who of celebrities from the film, television, music and sports industries. Sales of this book resulted in raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for breast cancer awareness and TJ donates 100% of profits to this cause. His amazing eye and experience as one of industry’s leading directors has given him the ability to capture breathtaking images which attract tens of millions of views on the web.

TJ has been published in and on the cover of dozens of magazines, captured over 250 pages of Editorial and Fashion spreads, as well as Book Covers and Album Covers for Bands.
