I often get emails asking for advice, favors, and freebies, but it isn’t often I get an email like this. It made my week, thank you!

Bobby,


I want to say thank you for the inspiration. I have referenced your renders for a long time in trying to improve my skill. Also your contributions to the Arch Viz community through your blog and various forums are a great resource. I appreciate you taking the time to post on the forums offering advice and providing solid solutions to the questions people have. I started following your work when I was employed at an architectural firm in Calgary, Alberta. This was around when my daughter was born and I was inspired by your business model to take the plunge to go freelance. Since then I have been working from home and it's the best thing I have done for my family. 

Anyway, I'm not selling or asking anything I just wanted to pass on my appreciation of your work.  
All the best,

Rush jobs are uncommon, but do happen. When they do happen, it does create a scheduling nightmare. My objective is to meet my clients rush need without jeopardizing normally scheduled projects. My first questions is why is there a rush?

Lack of Planning on Your Part Does Not Constitute an Emergency on My Part

A rush job will usually cost you more and not only will it cost you more, everything is rushed and the quality of your rendering might be compromised. These images turned out great, and there was no compromise in quality; my rush client got me all the needed information in a timely matter.

12 Cornell Road House Rendering

12 Cornell Road House Rendering

Great testimony on the benefits of an architectural rendering. The house was designed, went through all the review processes, and signed off by the owner. All the CAD files we sent to me and I virtually built the house. After sending my client a gray-scale proof, they noticed that the detail at the entrance formed a perfect Christian cross. Now, my client’s name is Christian, but I don’t know is religious affiliation, but I can assure you, he didn’t know he would have a cross at his front door. Personally, I loved it. The design was changed and now it doesn’t look like a Christian Church. Everyone involved scratched their heads wondering why they didn’t notice from the CAD drawings. Once they saw the architectural rendering it was plain as day, even on the CAD drawings that they have been looking at for months.

I absolutely love this house!

I work for people across the globe and I see a lot of architecture and I know a lot of architects world-wide. Most architects outside of the states mock me for the american houses I illustrate. You know, the box with the garage door taking up most of the front facade. Well, this American house breaks that mold and I love it; I think they will love it too.

This looks freaking amazing!... I am serious, thanks so much for creating these, should really help market and get them SOLD SOLD SOLD!!

Great piece of property with a nicely designed home. There are three proposed structures. A main house with an outdoor pool, a garage, and a crafts building. The site is hilly and heavily wooded, which added a level of complexity to the project.

3rd and Taylor Nashville, TN Rendering

Nashville, TN, a place my daughter wants to visit and a place I have done many architectural renderings for. Another thing about Nashville, TN, I have yet to work on an architectural rendering project that had a flat site; very hilly. Well, my daughter will get her wish because we are making a trip down to TN this weekend. I am going to Memphis and my wife and daughter will continue West to Nashville, TN.

Manor Streetscape Rendering

Manor Streetscape Rendering

Streetscape renderings are pretty time consuming and not easy to pull off, but hopefully I pulled it off on the Manor Streetscape Renderings. With a ton of detail, subtle depth of field and creative color grading, my objective was to make it a real an natural looking suburban street.

This projects has six more images and I’ll those later, so please come back in a week. Each house gets a one point perspective and then I have an overall view to create.

Lahaina Beach Club Rendering

Lahaina Beach Club Rendering

Often, I get real estate brokers or agent wanting to pretty up their properties for marketing. I'll hear, “can you put lipstick on a pig?”. This one, the Lahaina Beach Club property, is a beautiful building on the ocean, however, it needed a major make over. I didn’t have CAD files to work with, actually, the architect wouldn’t release them to the owner. It turned out that the architect wanted to provide the architectural renderings, but the real estate broker wanted something better than the architect could provide.

Summer Set House Rendering

Summer Set House Rendering

I really enjoy these single house rendering projects. Some projects can last weeks, months, or sometimes years, so it is relaxing to spend just a couple days on a project.

I average one house a week and each one takes me about two days, start to finish. It’s nice to fit these smaller projects in between larger ones, which tend to take a while to receive feedback.

Hancock Apartment Interior Renderings

Hancock Apartment Interior Renderings

These came to me as a previous client referral, which is always a great complement. They already had interior renderings created, by someone else, but they were not happy with them and they didn’t think they could use them for their marketing campaign. 

At first, I received partial information, so the project started off strange. The interior images were dark and gloomy, however, I wanted to show the client an unbiased look into their interior spaces, so I didn’t do any tricks to brighten things up. After receiving more information we realized that the windows I had built, where 1/2 as small and 1/2 as many. Once I opened up some more exterior wall with openings, the spaces became bright an cheery.

Truth be known, the spaces are a little small, however, with some photography tricks, light and bright colors, and limited furniture, the spaces look spacious.
