I have been working in the Visual Effects industry since 1999 for Feature Films and TV after studying Design and Photography.
I have been a 3D Shading / Lighting Artist for many years before moving to MATTE PAINTING and CONCEPT ART, combining 2D / 3D CGI and photography with traditional techniques.

“FIGHT FOR LIFE, Episode 4” – Marco Iozzi - Look Development Lead / Shading and Lighting Lead Artist
 

"Marco has been a highly sought after artist in the Commercials and Feature Films industry for many years. After studying Industrial Design, he started his career working as a visual effects artist. Marco quickly concentrated his work on look development and design, combining his expertise in 3D computer graphics with traditional photography to create photo-real and unique images. Projects he worked on received awards like Bafta, Gold Clio and AICP, and in 2008 he won a Visual Effects Society Award for leading the work on a BBC TV Series."
