Generally all of the current drawings, landscaping plans and elevations are required to start the job. Usually these documents are also accompanied with materials or styling and all of these are very important as it’s inefficient to start without all of the documents.
These are required from all clients however some clients don’t have finished design or styling and in such cases I can make my own design and recommend styling that will work in a particular image.
I do work in my own style, however if the client requests a particular style they would like for their marketing I’m always open to suggestions. However this needs to be shown and agreed clearly through references.
The most interesting projects for me are the ones with nice architecture and unique design. Challenging jobs for large scale projects are interesting too as I get to push that level of quality even higher.
If I have a good model to start with, sketchup or revit model, doesn’t count, I will start with setting up some good camera angles and rendering wireframes for the client to see how it’s going to look like.
Establishing the correct camera angle and composition is crucial for the image success. Than it goes into color and usually there are 2 revisions, however, in a lot of scenarios the clients don’t require any or just minor changes as they are generally happy with the produced image/animation.
