Pursuing his dream, he studied design at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig, Germany and Pratt Institute in New York and has since collaborated across the globe with clients for the last 25 years. He has worked in the corporate world for a decade as European Design Director for Symbol Technologies in the UK before founding Thinkable Studio in 2005. Thinkable Studio are developing award-winning consumer, medical and high-tech products for a diverse range of customers, from Fortune 500 companies to small startups.

Workshop: A guide to Product Configurations
We wouldn't call product configuration in KeyShot a new feature any more, but many users still don't know about it or what to do with it - which is a shame because it is a great tool for many use cases. In this Workshop, you'll learn how configuration in KeyShot works and why you would want to use this amazing feature in your daily work. Starting from setting up your scenes and ending at the different output options available.
Workshop: Dynamic Realism in Renderings
In this workshop, our resident digital reality artist, Saskia Failla, shows you how to add some more realism to your renderings to lift them to the next level. You will learn how to prepare and import your geometry and materials, what to watch for when lighting a scene, and how to choose camera angles and image styles.
Workshop: Augmented Reality and KeyVR
Did you know the new and exciting world of Augmented reality is just a few clicks away? In this workshop, Saskia shows you how to prepare your KeyVR scenes and optimise them for different outputs like AR or web applications.
Workshop: Lighting your scenes
You'll need a basic understanding of lighting in order to create realistic renderings that look the part. Hazel will show you some best practices you can follow and build from to set up your HDRIs. Also, you will learn how to create and manipulate the different lighting features available in KeyShot.
