My name is Benjamin Brosdau, I am a 3D artist by calling and a photographer by passion. I am selftaught starting with "3D- Animationsstudio" (now discontinued), Cinema 4D and finally moving to 3dsmax which still serves as the backbone of my work, although it is now being complemented by a host of supporting applications. I have around 12 years of experience the last 6 of those working professionally fulltime as TD and Lead artist for purerender in Berlin.
