My name is Jørgen Herland. I’m a graphics designer currently employed at TV 2 Norway as a graphics designer and animator.
10 years ago I started learning the principles of 2D and 3D design, with my main focus on 3D modeling and rendering. I also got my first DSRL and spent a lot of time with photography, and most importantly, combining this with my 3D work using a technique called HDR lighting.
After a year building my skillset in photorealistic rendering, I started learning animation. I also began experimenting with fluid dynamics in 3D.
My work in photorealistic rendering has always centered around the HDR rendering techniques. Early on I began shooting my own HDR panoramic images and implementing my CG work within these photos. In 2008 I got my first fisheye-lens and began shooting high-quality HDRs.
In 2010 I enrolled in Noroff Institute in their 3D Design and Animation-class. I continued their 3D Film production the next year.
In 2012 I finished my exams and got a job as a graphics designer and animator at the TV 2 News Dept. A couple of years later TV 2 build a brand new graphics dept. as an extension on their Technology branch and now I work within a larger team of graphics designers serving the whole of TV 2 Norway.
In late 2013 I got in touch with an awesome 3D artist from Australia called Grant Warwick. We started collaborating on his Vray-course in which I was happy to provide my HDR material and insight.
In 2015 we’re in the process of building an online shop for my HDR material and this will be released soon.
