  • New to the industry

    Hi everyone,

    I've been looking for a website like this for a while now and I've finally found it! I live in London and my background is in Architectural Visualisation CGI having spent over 2 years at a world leading Architectural Visualisation studio Hayes Davidson http://www.hayesdavidson.com. Some examples of the work I produced while working there can be seen at: http://www.beachlandsbarbados.com/#/imagegallery/
    and http://www.delliscay.com by navigating to the “Villa D by Zaha Hadid” on the sites home page.

    However, with the global economic downturn there is a hugh shortage of work in this field so I want to use the opportunity to move into retouching and perhaps eventually photography which I have had a life-long passion for.

    As I have a lot of experience using Photoshop and Lightroom to composite sometimes quite complex images together to create realistic visualisations so I hope this side step into a new career is realistic & achievable, especially as I know all industries have been hit hard by the downturn.

    Ultimately I would like to gain employment with one of the bigger and well established studios here in London such as Taylor James or Saddington & Baynes as they also produce CGI as well. Any advice about how I might go about this would be very much appreciated.

    Yours,

    David

    hi
    everyone is tightening their budgets at the moment and it seems to be worse in the uk than elsewhere. retouching is not an easy thing to get into at the moment. best thing for you is to put a proper portfolio together and start contacting various companies. maybe you will be lucky.

    there is work out there, but you gotta chase it... good luck x

              by Liberty
              Hi

              I thought I would say hello on this dismal and rainy day in London.

              My name is Liberty and back in 1999 I graduated from a photography degree but at the time decided that the steady (boring) work was needed to get on the property ladder. Now 9 years later (three house...
