Ciro Sannino
V-Ray for 3ds Max, V-Ray for Rhino

Ciro Sannino started his career working with V-Ray and photorealistic renders and was totally in love with the idea of creating images that carried the excitement of a photograph's light. He decided to strengthen his training by studying photography and graduating in process design. With the combination academic training and his photographic vision, he created the 5SRW method, a workflow to produce renderings entirely based on the photographic approach. He became the first official V-Ray Licensed Trainer certified by Chaos Group and published the book "Photography & Rendering with V-Ray", which has been translated into 3 languages. Ciro is today the project manager at Learnvray.com — available in 8 languages — and he continues to give master classes and workshops worldwide.
