As a 3D artist with over 16 years of experience and 14 years running my own successful 3D Studio, I have found a true passion for teaching and mentoring others in the field. Self-taught and understanding the struggles of teaching oneself, I have created my course VizCourse to provide the fastest and best way for kickstarting a career in Architecture Visualization. With 4+ years of tutoring experience and having taught over 50 students worldwide, I am proficient in using 3D Max, Vray, Corona, and Photoshop. My expertise is guiding beginners new to 3D Max, taking them step-by-step through the process until they are confident in producing their own 3D renders. I am incredibly proud of the course I've created and would be honored to be your mentor and guide on your 3D journey, helping to enhance your career.
