Being a profession that is really young everything (its history, methods of learning, references) hasn’t got a track as large as other more traditional artistic disciplines such as painting, photography or cinema.
The ones who have already been in this for a few years, remember our beginnings as a solitary adventure. There was still no internet (you can believe it!) And access to information was far more limited than it is today.
We were all self-taught. The test and error were our teachers. Any book was welcome. Any quality work became an example to imitate. Both hardware and software began to appear. It was the beginning.
Can you imagine how long the render times were with those machines and those first versions of software?
In recent years, periodically, I receive emails with a recurring question:
Which archviz school / academy / university do you recommend me to learn architectural visualization?
There are more and more options. Although I still think that the effort to be self-taught fits you in the process, it is true that when they take you by the hand, times are shortened and learning is more effective.
Today I place here a list of official learning sites.
Even if you take notes about one of them, I invite you to “draw” your own path. Do not limit yourself to academic learning and continually look for your own references.
And, above all, experience, experience and experience.
