Family: n/a

Worked with 3d: since mid 2002 - started out with Cinema 4D R7 back then. Started with 3dsMax a year later.. went through a lot of renderers and was fooling around with WinOSI and some other brute-force renderers before maxwell finally came up.. i'm on maxwell since the early alpha-days. Stopped using it when RC5 came up. Now i'm using VRay for most of my stuff.

Worked with Photorealism: Since i started 3d.. C4D R7 had everything you needed.. glossy reflections, radiosity and area-shadows.. ;)

Why: because i hate to model.. and even if i do model, i'm not very good at it.. so the best way to cover up crappy modelling is kick-ass shading and lighting :)

Name: Chris Sicilia
Age: 29
From: United States - Pueblo, Colorado
Family: Single
Worked with 3D: Since 2003 (Solidworks and Mastercam) also have experience with Inventor, Pro E, and Solid Edge
With Photorealism: For the past 2 weeks
Why: I am actually a machinist first off Certified in both Mastercam X2 and Solidworks 2008. I teach both on my spare time at the local community college. I got into Maxwell for two reasons, first and foremost my new job wants to put their part catalog online so instead of just taking pictures like everyone else does I thought it would be better to put it in Maxwell. The other reason I thought it would be great to learn something new and possibly turn it into a hobby.

Name: Patrik Rosén
Born: 1982
From: Stockholm/Sweden
Family: Girlfriend
Worked with 3d: 7 years
Worked with Photorealism: Since I started with 3D

Why: Started to do some renders for Philips Medical Systems directly after I finished school in 2000, started my own company pretty much directly after graduation and worked as a freelancer/consultant for a few years. Worked with 3D for ads, movies and architecture.

After that I've worked at a few different architectural companys in Stockholm, and at the moment I'm running a 3D department at Temagruppen Arkitekter.

Name: Yossi Rachevsky
Age: 39
From: my office is in Tel-Aviv, Israel
Family: wife and 2 kids.
Worked with 3d: About 16 years since arc+ version 6.
Worked with Photorealism: About 15 years.
Why: I studied architecture and started working in architects firms during my university studies, just to find that it's boring sketching and planning all day... so I switched to something I knew after working as a storyboard painter: CG . and for architecture, it seems much more interesting.

Name: Bjørn Kantereit
Age: 41
From: cologne, germany
Family: girlfriend (she´s an architect like me) • 2 kids/girls • 9 and 11 years old • one ex-wife .-)
Worked with 3d: since mid 90´s - started with MiniCad4 and StrataStudio and ElectricImage (i guess 2.7.x) on Quadra650
Worked with Photorealism: since i bought Maxwell in 2008. but i´m always beyond photorealism and i will always be .-)
Why: i think as an architect, that 3d-viz should always be a tool to visualize your idea and have the spectator think his own part of the things that are not perfectly shown. why else? because i love building ideas in 3d and keep on designing while modeling.
