3DCAMP Houston 2012 Registration is now open!

The goal of 3DCAMP Houston 2012 is to encourage and educate individuals about the use of 3D in various disciplines; therefore 3DCAMP 2012 is returning with STEAM, an educational initiative that supports 3DCAMP Houston’s educational goal of incorporating and encouraging the blending and education of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM).

“The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Houston is pleased to help further the community’s appreciation and knowledge of the many aspects of 3D applications in our modern world. The rapid evolution in visualization technology is playing a critical role in advancing many important areas, from medical and surgical techniques to new methods of energy realization and information transmission,“ said Mark A. Smith, dean of the college. “With the university playing a critical role nationwide in these developments, it is satisfying as well as natural to help bring this understanding to our community through 3DCAMP 2012.”

CI Masters Series with Jeffrey Jacobs

I recently posted about the benefits of taking workshops and how it is great when they are located in beautiful places enabling you to combine work and pleasure.  Here is another one being given by Presenting Architecture member Jeffrey Jacobs. Location: GLACIER NATIONAL PARK!, do I need to say more to get you to look into this amazing opportunity? Here are the details and also note I placed this on the Presenting Architecture Event Calendar where many other terrific events get posted.

Architectural Photography Workshop

Glacier National Park: October 4-7, 2012

In this 2-day in-depth workshop, internationally acclaimed architectural photographer Jeffrey Jacobs will share extensive details of how he lights and captures the architectural images that have garnered recognition worldwide. The workshop will be a mix of classroom and location settings with Jeffrey teaching his process on an actual shoot. The classroom session will cover the equipment used, technical training, and information on job planning. Then workshop attendees will light two productions – one interior and/or one exterior on the estate with Jeffrey. Plan on getting your hands dirty as you work with the crew in the process of creating an image. You will be a part of the creation from beginning to end in these two information packed days. Jeffrey enjoys collaboration, so you’ll be involved in post-production as well. This workshop should not be missed. Best for professionals or serious amateurs.

Jeffrey Jacobs – Spanning more than 29 years, Jeffrey Jacobs’ career has focused exclusively on high-end architecture, architectural product and hospitality/resort photography. From large-scale projects to small intimate spaces, Jacobs’ artfully detailed and masterfully crafted three-dimensional lighting techniques are recognized nationally and internationally. Jacobs’ extensive experience includes all types of image production, from “bubble gum to Mack Trucks,” including food, large studio and elaborate location productions in addition to numerous television, music video and documentary motion picture presentations. In the early to mid-1980s, his responsibilities included Lighting Director, Gaffer, Best Boy Electric and Key Grip on several regional and local television commercials.

This extensive production experience has given Jacobs a unique insight into every aspect of image production, both still and motion, and enables him to explore the full range of possibilities ultimately bringing his or his clients’ vision to reality. He consistently provides his clients with unique and often unprecedented results using lighting approaches rarely considered or attempted by other professionals. He also knows when natural light and simple are the best choice.

The Architecture of Light

For any professional, taking continuing education workshops can be a hard thing to justify. From my experience, it can also be an amazing experience that is both instantly rewarding and brings long time benefits to your professional experience. One way to justify the time is to combine business with pleasure and take the workshop at a beautiful location.

Now is your chance to watch and paint with architectural artist Tom Schaller in some amazing locations. To get to see Tom paint is truly worth the trip, to give yourself a week to paint is amazing, add in Tom’s insights and invaluable teaching style puts the experience over the top. The above gallery is from Tom’s recent European workshop.

Architectural artist Tom Schaller has long been considered one of the foremost architectural artists in the world. In the field, he has won every major award for his artwork – including being a two-time recipient of the Hugh Ferriss Memorial Prize. He has authored two books ; the best-selling, and AIA award of merit winner, Architecture in Watercolor, and The Art of Architectural Drawing. He is increasingly in demand internationally to conduct his watercolor workshop series, “The Architecture of Light“. His artwork is collected and exhibited around the world.

Tom’s work can be seen as a ‘featured professional’ on Presenting Architecture http://www.presentingarchitecture.com/directory/ads/schaller-architectural-design-presentation-2/ and at his own illustration and fine art sites:

Panel Discussion Wrap Up

May 232012

The Presenting Architecture Exhibition and Seminar Series hosted by the San Francisco Chapter of the American Institute of Architect’s office wrapped up last month and over the next few blog posts I will show some of the related material including images from the exhibition, comments and some insights from the seminars.

The last event was the panel discussion titled Presenting Architecture: What works for clients, the press and the public. Moderated by Amanda Walter with panelists: John King, George Calys, Jonathan Stern, Frank Doyle and Phil Woods. This was a rare look at how architectural presentations are perceived by clients, public entities and press who constantly have presentations made to them. Getting insights from these extremely experienced people was highly informative.  In addition to moderating this great discussion, Amanda Walter also wrote a fantastic blog  Designing Your Stories about it  on her Waltercomms Blog.

Here are some photos posted to the Presenting Architecture FaceBook page of the panel discussion

And once again, this exhibit and series of events was made possible with the help of our hosts and sponsors.

This exhibit was sponsored by Arch , GCI General Contractors and William Stout Architectural Books.

Proudly hosted by the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco Chapter and the Center for Architecture + Design.
