Digital Watercolor

Between specific 2d and 3d digital techniques a watercolour style rendering illustration can be achieved. This technique is sometimes

useful in the early stages of the design process. This looser style of imagery suggests design which is still in process.


Architectural Animation

Architectural animations can be as simple as walking through the interior of a 3d model or more comprehensive with a storyboarded sequence of shots that give your viewing audience a story that makes a strong impression. An animation can really help a client envision the entirety of a project, as well as capturing the interest of potential project investors and wowing the local city officials. Animations are extrememly valuable when you're trying to make a strong impression.


Architectural Photography

Photography is typically utilized when a project is complete and you're ready to add some imagery to your website, portfolio or next big project proposal. Ken has been photographing architecture for almost 20 years and applies many of the same principles that are used in his illustrations, such as composition, lighting, and color.


Drone Photography for Visualization and Animation
