Main Street Minnesota Rendering

Main Street Minnesota Rendering

Over the past couple of decades, I have created architectural renderings for projects around the globe, on every continent and virtually every US state, however, only a handful for the state I currently reside in. Main Street Minnesota rendering was for a Twin City Minnesota Architect.

Often, I get emails or phone calls about rush projects and usually, I'll pass. There is usually a reason a project is rushed and it is due to poor planning, which usually extends to the architectural rendering. The Main Street Minnesota rendering was a rush project, I asked my pertinent questions, and I chose to take the project. All went well and the project was delivered on time.

Wedding Venue Rendering

Wedding Venue Rendering

Another fun one that I wanted to share. My objective was to take a pretty basic building and make it romantic.  From the white flowered plants, to the flowery ground cover, I thing I accomplished my objective. Do you agree?

Kiddie Academy

Kiddie Academy

This was a great project that I think turned out well.  I am always impressed when the business owners reach out to me. From architects and designers to business owners and homeowners.

What is happening is, like most businesses, architects and designers find a way to create revenue. With most design software today, the architectural rendering is a by-product of the design drawings. So, it becomes something that the architects and designers can charge for, however, the quality, for the most part, isn't' really good. When the owner requests an architectural rendering, so they can do their marketing after the design is done, they find that the renderings will not suffice and that's where I come in. 

Having said that, I see another change happening. The architects and designers are starting to approach me again because they are finding out that they can't compete with their renderings if they do them in-house. Like anything, it takes a lot to get really good at something and to get a good rendering you need someone, like me, who specializes in it.

Palma Plaza Renderings

Palma Plaza Renderings

Some project last longer than others, it is part of the business. I can do my best to schedule things, however, sometimes that schedule isn't' worth the paper it was written on. The Palma Plaza Renderings takes the award for the longest running project I have ever had in my 25 years in business. I didn't start the project until well after the project's deadline had passed; I was waiting on plans. Halfway through the project, I had to explain the process again and explain that if milestones are missed the deadline is in jeopardy. I always aim to avoid frustrations on all sides, including mine. If a milestone is missed I might have to reschedule things, and I don't like to do that, and sometimes, it could be weeks, and that would cause frustrations. I take milestones and deadlines seriously, and I do lose sleep over these things, even if the project is going smoothly.  Sometimes, if not more time than not, I am far more stressed about the project deadline than my client is. 

Anyway, here are the stills from the Palma Plaza project.

672 Steamboat Road Renderings

672 Steamboat Road Renderings

My family and I love watching Forensic Files. Did you see that they are doing new ones now? I was commissioned, by a legal team, to illustrate the proposed Steamboat Rd. house, which is under some kind of variance dispute. Okay, nobody died, but it is great knowing that I can help someone plead their legal case using one of my renderings.

White Mansion Architectural Renderings

White Mansion Architectural Renderings

There is a story with these white mansions you see me do.  A couple years ago I got a phone call from a gentleman out of upper New York State.  The gentleman had some mansions that he wanted to get illustrated, he saw my work and was extremely impressed. He was having an outfit out of China doing his renderings and he wanted to up his game, but didn't think that the Chinese company could compete with the quality he is seeing on my website. We discussed price and the phone call ended in, I can't possible produce the quality you want for the price you paid the Chinese company.  Over the next 24 hours I was not having a good feeling about not being able to work on such nice houses. I decided that if I come down a little and he comes up a little, maybe we can work something out. The next day I called him back and after some haggling, which I usually don't do, we decided on a price.

Now, some might hit me in the back of the head if they heard what I charged for these, however, just like charging more for projects you can't get excited about, sometimes it makes sense to change less for projects you can get excited about. If you really want to know what I charged, feel free to email me.

Hill House Bayport

Hill House Bayport

Here is the story. The developer gets a quote from the architect to include a 3D rendering with the construction documents. The architect sends the developer the rendering and the developer forwards it to the real estate broker, who is hired to sell the project. The real estate broker says, "I can't use this!" and then I get a call. This happens often and I have no complaints

Villa Capobianco Exterior Renderings

Villa Capobianco Exterior Renderings

Here is a little story.  When I was in middle school my parents hired an architect to design them a house. On paper, the house was nice and my parents were please, however, after it was built my parents questioned a lot of the detail. See, in 2D you don't fully understand things, unless you spend your life reading blueprints. I tell you this story because although I  looked at the plans for the Villa Capobianco residence for a few days, not until I build the 3D model did I appreciate the structure. The project really came to life after I added the materials, landscape, and lighting. 

The renderings look amazing!! I love it. you are very good, congratulation for the talent you have.!!
