On this week’s episode of the Toy Photographers Podcast, I talked to Australian photographer Tony Tulloch, who you may know as the “MacGyver” of the Toy Photographers community over on Google+.

Tony has been a photographer for over 40 years, but didn’t begin shooting LEGO until about two years ago. Since then, he has cemented himself as an important part of the community, thanks in no small part to his efforts on Google+. Our community simply wouldn’t be what it is today without Tony’s work behind the scenes as a moderator and his nearly daily posting, behind the scenes tips and tricks, and technological know-how.

The Interview

Tony and I had a fantastic chat about what inspired him to start photographing toys, our mutual nostalgia for the LEGO System line, why he loves Google+, and more! The episode is live now at all the usual places, and as always you can listen here:

Big thanks to Tony for being a fantastic guest! We actually talked for nearly two hours, between dealing with technical issues (we eventually had to record this over a Google Hangout, which is actually perfect considering Tony’s love of the Google platform), recording this episode, or simply chatting off-air about life and toys.

I hope you enjoy the episode and will join our conversation in the comments below!
