Podcast 21: Brecht Cuppens (@xwingtmgphotography) Interview

This week we’re jumping into hyperspace and travelling to a unique corner Toy Photography universe, because I interviewed Belgian photographer Brecht Cuppens, who goes by @xwingtmgphotography on Instagram.

A Long Time Ago in a Podcast Far Far Away…

Brecht exclusively shoots miniature Star Wars ships from the popular X-Wing Miniatures Game, bringing them to life in a cinematic and photorealistic way… but that’s actually not where he started or what he originally wanted to capture!

I talked to Brecht about how he started photographing such a unique subject and his history with Star Wars, and he gives some great photography tips and takes us a bit behind the scenes. I am a huge fan of his work, so it was fun geeking out for the podcast. Enjoy!

Make sure to follow Brecht on Instagram and Facebook! And you can listen to the awesome Star Wars synth music by Scandroid I found for this episode here.

Have you ever played the X-Wing Miniatures Game? I can’t wait to get my hands on the new version when it comes out in September!
