Meet Your Lens Lab Facilitator

I'm Callum King, I work creating Snapchat Lenses for top brands in my spare time. Working with Lens Studio also gives me creative freedom, allowing me to bring my own artworks to life. I have a passion for development and design, further allowing me to create programs that allow me to express this creativity further. With a passion for music, you can find me in my spare time playing guitar or learning new skills. I hope to help you with my knowledge of Lens Studio to bring your own artworks to life!

    But remember, go for it and create your own unique image!

  • Q: What software do you use for 3-D modeling?
