    The scanning system I used is a custom designed rig, the original inspeck system was so lacking in its capability to capture enough data from the angles they recommend, so I designed the rig to capture with 4 1280 x 1024 firewire camera’s using structured light. the rig now actually takes 4 shots at a time from 4 different angles resulting in 16 shots, the head is captured seperately using a Cyberware PS head scanner and the hands and feet with a high res camera, the resulting image is usually around 5 to 8 million points of information . Inspeck rewrote the software to enable me to use the PLY format written by Greg Turk at Stanford university, this format not only carries XYZ data but also carries RGB data in the file for each XYZ co-ordinate and is a nice compact format similar to Wavefront OBJ.

    Oh and incidentally I have worked with Naomi many times and am still working with her often, she is a real pleasure to work with and a true professional.

    Essentially the I designed the system for film and TV work, capturing actors and sets for animation, and capturing people for maikng replica’s statues etc, but I like to create images by using the scanners in a different way, you can see some examples here.

    As a result of this a few fashion photographers like Nick Knight have used my services to create unusual images for fashion magazines.
