Rehan Zia is a photographer, a visual effects artist, a filmmaker, a researcher and an academic. The thing that links all these areas is visual storytelling – Rehan has a passion for telling stories through light, form and colour and creating images that lie on the cusp of fantasy and realism.
Rehan teaches a wide range of visual effects related courses at the highly prestigious National Centre for Computer Animation, Bournemouth University, UK. These include subjects such as compositing, matchmoving, cinematography, digital texturing and lighting, digital filmmaking, project management and photography for computer animation and visual effects. 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.
Rehan’s on-going PhD research is based on his photography practice. He has exhibited work at a number of group and solo exhibitions and his images have been published in print and on the BBC.
