Battery Park | HDR

On a recent work stint in the Big Apple, taking textures and reference images. I found myself having a few hours to spare after going all around Manhattan and upstate NY. I already had my Nodal Ninja and the Canon 5d in the car and I told my driver Eric to circle around the block while I took a few HDRs in and around Battery Park. In the image you can see the newly built Freedom Tower as well as the Statue of Liberty, happy...

The George HDR

Numerous pints and stories have been shared around The George in Soho. If  you walk down Wardour Street and stop by The George  sometime after 6pm you might hear tales of subdivision surfaces, hops, subsurface, bi-directional path tracing, malt, HDR, BXDF and everything else a VFX worker might have on their mind. VFX pubs are a mystery, from one day to the next the “house pub” might change. One day Cinesite has claimed...

The place is covered in graffiti and I used it for a photo project called “In someone’s bed” featuring homeless peoples night stay, five or six years ago. You can hear...

Cinesite VFX London HDR

Back at the crime scene early in the morning, the usually busy Soho is now empty. It almost feels like the zombie apocalypse is in full effect. But no! It’s just very early on a Saturday morning and most sane people are still asleep. Me….? I’m sane in my own way and I’m here in front of Cinesite where I have entered the doors many times to do what I do best and that would be Visual Effects. Since I arrived from...

The Foundry Free HDR

Exiting the tube early on a Saturday morning, my goal was utterly shattered upon first entering Golden Square. The name ‘golden’ to me represents something shiny and divine, but the image captured on my retina was far from golden and divine. There was a mountain of trash right outside The Foundry‘s headquarters. Plan B was quickly set in to motion and I ended up taking the first HDR of the day outside the MPC office...
