Here are 3 brand new images of the Tokyo penthouse that I was working on earlier in the summer. You can see the complete set of images on my website here.

At the start of September I spent some time in Cloud & Horse’s studios shooting with actress Jennifer Dawn-Williams. The shoot had been meticulously planned to allow the resulting photographs of Jennifer to be blended seamlessly with computer generated images of the apartment.

I will try to post soon a short animation of the post production layering of the images.

This visualisation is of a new development in Elephant and Castle by A Zero Architects. There will be a nursery at ground floor with three town houses above. Construction work is due to start in Autumn 2015.

In 2014 I produced this series of images for Sybarite Architects of their project The Dice House. Each house has utility or retail space at its base followed by floors of living space which are capped with a roof garden covered with solar panels.

For the technically curious amongst you, these images were produced with Rhino and Maxwell, rather than 3DS Max and VRay. The hay field was produced using Maxwell’s grass extension and there is only a modest amount of post-production on any of the images.
