Freelance Advice – Tips and Tricks
(Any Software – Design Business Type)

Welcome to the introduction to starting up a freelance operation. In this article we will cover the various mistakes and hardships of beginning this type of venture. Most of the topics covered can be applied to just about any type of freelance operation, from 3D Design to Graphic Design to Mechanical Design, the list could go on.

The items I will be discussing have come up many times over the course of my career and if you know these things in advance, you’ll surely be freelancing in style.

Starting up a freelance operation is a lot of hard work that most cannot fathom until they step into the shoes as owner / operator. Perseverance is a key item in this venture. Most operations do not take off for quite some time and at first you may make barely enough to survive. Keeping your focus on the big picture is extremely important. If you are looking to make fast money then you are probably doing it for the wrong reasons.

This is by no means a complete list of everything to watch out for. I will be updating this article as time goes on and new topics present themselves to me. If anyone has any thoughts on new topics that I should cover regarding freelance operations, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Creating A Detailed Master Plan Rendering – Part 1
(Autodesk 3dsmax 2010 – Adobe Photoshop CS4)

In this tutorial set we will cover the massive undertaking of creating a large site plan from sketches over about 5 sessions. I will be using Autodesk 3dsmax 2010 and Adobe Photoshsop CS4 in this tutorial, although many of the involved steps in the process can be transferred to other software.

This specific rendering was created for EcoCentrix, a Landscape Architecture Firm based out of Los Angeles. They have been kind enough to let me show all collateral information that I have been provided when contracted.

The focus of this rendering is based mainly off the site hardscape, planting and how it flows rather than the architecture of the buildings.
