Dr Rehan Zia holds a practice-led PhD in photography/visual effects craft practice. Rehan has been awarded the Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society (FRPS) – the highest level of RPS distinctions – as well as the Fellowship of the Royal Society for Arts (FRSA). Rehan is also an Unreal Virtual Production Fellow and a certified Nuke Trainer.
Visual storytelling lies at the core of Rehan’s creative practice, teaching and research. He has a passion for telling stories through light, form and colour, creating images that lie on the cusp of fantasy and realism.
Rehan teaches a wide range of visual effects and camera acquisition related courses at the Bournemouth University’s prestigious National Centre for Computer Animation in the UK.
These courses include practice areas such as camera acquisition, visual storytelling, previsualisation, cinematography, compositing, matchmoving, digital texturing and lighting, project management and photography for visual effects, computer animation and games. Rehan has a keen interest in course design and has delivered a number of talks on best practice in teaching visual effects and computer animation for The Creative Skillset (now known as ScreenSkills).
He has exhibited work at a number of group and solo exhibitions and his images have been published in print and on the BBC.
