About me

I am a passionate, pro-active 3D artist, specialising in architectural visualisation. I have years of experience from many London studios, and now in Sweden I work in-house with one of Scandinavia's biggest architect firms.

I believe networking is an essential part of being a 3D artist. I have co-founded a Stockholm arch-viz meetup called Sweviz where we encourage collaboration, skill sharing, problem solving and of course socialising. I'm British, I'm good at that!

Hayes Davidson 2012

A set of 5 illustrations showing a Swedish inspired residential development.. Every image was created using carefully selected references and the HD image planning process creating a unique feel and realism in each. I was afforded good time with these images including many client revisions.

See also my CGI alongside a photograph of the actual project.

En dag, tre bilder "challenge" ▼

Tengbom 2014

This was a one day project where I had to create as much in the images as possible from an ArchiCAD model. This breakdown film demonstrates my efficent workflow; using models from old files, simple Photoshop structure, image planning. Although not the most stunning set of images, it is always fun to challenge myself to do as much as I can and impress the architects! It also proves that 3D images don't have to be an expesnive investment.

Tengbom 2013

This was a video editing and graphics project I did for a hugely popular student housing scheme in southern Sweden. I had to clip the film together, add motion graphics and sound effects. The video got well over 8000 hits!

Tengbom Arkitekter 2013

Akademiska Stråket, Solna, Sweden ▼

Tengbom Arkitekter 2013

Competition illustrations for a new "academic mall" between the campus environments. One image was started "from scratch" and the other was worked on from another architect's work. Both of these were performed with a tight a deadline.

Mästerhuset, Stockholm, Sweden ▼

Tengbom Arkitekter 2013

Mästerhuset is a redevelopment project that will replace three inefficient buildings with a single, modern world-class property of prime office and retail accommodation.

A long running project, these 2 images were part of a marketing push by the client. This project was heavily controlled by the client, and it was important to balance their requests whilst retaining the quality of the image.

Kv Resenären, Uppsala, Sweden ▼

Tengbom Arkitekter 2013

Competition illustrations to compliment the architect's presentation boards. 5 views were from pre-decided positions. The proposal was highly praised but unfortunately fell just short. I was involved in the later stages of the design and worked from ArchiCAD imports.

Something I learnt from this project is that although we were obliged to use the supplied photography, we should have been more ambitious in adding more complimenting views of the architecture.

Marketing value in illustrations ▼

Some images I created to show the value that can be extracted from an illustration, even if it was only made for one use. For example, a client might have wanted an image for their presentation material. But this image can go a lot further than that; advertising, magazines, apps.

2008-12

A selection of images from the 3 years I spent working at this design and communication agency in London. A main client of ours was Tesco, and we became extremely efficent in producing the same image types for them; aerial overviews, entrance views across the carpark, camera matching.
