Age: 36 (after going through the many pages, im not that young!)
From: Sarawak (East Malaysia), stationed in Singapore for now.
Family: Wife, married for 8 years. No kids. 3 Dogs and a cat consider? : ))
Worked with 3d: Since Newtek, Lightwave 3. 10 years ago i guess. Have been doing animation for most of the years but rendering stills (For print ads) are what im doing now.
Worked with Photorealism: Since doing still rendering about 3 years ago.
Why: I love details. I love doing still rendering. Lastly, life has to go on... is about working.

Worked with 3d:4 years (1 year professional)
Worked with Photorealism:Since I started 4 years ago
Why:For the MONEY! In all seriousness, aside from it being the basis for my career, It's a challenge. Recreating the world from inside a computer is a very good way to understand it better

You're right; I'm actually a little embarrassed about how often I was ignorant of a certain physics concept before encountering it in Maxwell.

Did not know about this thread before now, so this is me :)

Name: Tor Martin
Age: 30
From: Oslo, Norway
Family: engaged with a lovely girl, we share a little Parson Russel Terrier.
Worked with 3D: several years. Startet out with Carrara, poser and Bryce. Played around with Maya, Modo, Houdini before ending up with cinema 4d.
Worked with photorealism: I am an owner of animation and design studio in Oslo, and we always tries to mix different styles. So our productions are usually a mix between non-photorealistic images and something that looks real.
Why: Jurassic Park, Independence Day and Starship Troopers. Those movies just rocked my world when I was a boy.
