A few months ago I decided to improve my skills in photogrammetry. Photo scanning has always been a passion of mine, but I had never actually created an entire environment using my own scans. I saw an advertisement for a photogrammetry course taught by Vlad Vanzariuc at Vertex School and figured it would be the perfect opportunity to learn from one of the best and finally start to create my own environment.
I decided to focus on Norrtälje Stadshotell, a beautiful late 19th century building in the centre of my home city. Almost everything in this scene is built from my own scans taken this summer and I followed the development pipeline of a modern AAA game in creating it. I built everything in a modular workflow, trying to keep within a reasonable game budget as well as running in real-time in UE4.
I learned so much throughout this project and I would like to extend a huge thank you to my amazing mentors Vlad Vanzariuc and Jacob Claussen, who generously took time out of their busy schedules to give me guidance and feedback along the way. I appreciate it more than you can imagine. I hope you all enjoy the scene as much as I enjoyed creating it!
