CORBAS began as CAFE CORBAS, founded by Basul Parik and Corky Engel.

After 9 years, Basul and Corky left the cafe business and drew upon Basul's family history of photography dating back three generations to Prague and his family's "Professional Color Laboratory" in San Francisco.

Basul's early 60's history with Fantasy Records and Bill Graham, along with Corkys' knowledge of the newly emerging computer based video editing field led to the founding of Corbas Video.



With the advent of digital photography, the ability to "paint" with the camera was born.

Highlighting only those areas that convey the idea and leaving out those elements that may detract.

Not only do these panographs express, we believe, the rapid, jumbled and dense world of information available to all of us living in this age, they also express an element of time.

Some of these works required anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours to photograph.

They can contain anywhere from 20 to 150 individual megapixel images.

Lift Stand


We love to read in bed.

But, holding an iPad, Surface, or even a Kindle for any length of time is awkward and painful.

Why use one hand on a touch tablet?

We created the Lift Stand to let us recline and use both hands for as long as we like.

Vertical or horizontal.

The large base allows the station to rest securely on any surface.

We raised the tablet closer to eye level to minimize neck strain.

The result is a more relaxed working, browsing, reading or gaming experience.
