Nightvision is a celebration of the brilliance and diversity of architecture found across Europe. Over the course of three months I journeyed with a friend through 36 cities in 21 countries with the ambition of capturing some of the greatest European structures in a new and unique way. Comprised of thousands of carefully taken photographs, strung together and stabilized in post-production, Nightvision aims to inspire appreciation for these man-made landmarks.
Nightvision would not have been possible without my Kickstarter backers, the support of the American University of Paris community, everyone who helped along the way, and of course, those who designed and built these architectural masterpieces.

Cityscape Chicago is a personal timelapse piece consisting of over 30,000 still photographs shot on the Canon 5D Mark III incrementally between July and October 2012 around downtown Chicago, Illinois.
The inspiration of this piece was my fascination with the city of Chicago, particularly at night. For me, there has always been a mysterious sort of feeling to Chicago at night, so I decided to explore and capture it.

This is my first architecture visualization job. I was responsible for shading/texturing, illumination, render (BlenderCycles) and final composition (AfterEffects). I received the models from the client since it's a real building planned and modelled by an architect.
I'm very happy with the results since I had a short deadline and a great help of a powerful denoiser that was implemented into a separate Blender branch (GoogleSummerOfCode)
I know that it's not perfect but I think it's a good start.
Here you can find more info about the denoiser if you are interested:
