Thanks to The LEGO Group, we’ve been given the opportunity to review the upcoming LEGO Movie 2 Collectable Minifigure series due for official release on February 1, 2019.
Over the holidays I loaded the car with the kids, clothes and toys and embarked on the 5 hour drive up north to visit my Mum. We left behind a morning of 20°C and drove north braced for temperatures over 40°C. I wasn’t ready for the tones that accompanied the …
Hello 2019. And hello to you! As we pack away the Christmas decorations and tidy up after the New Year celebrations, it’s time to jump into another year of Toy Photographers fun.
As we rush towards the end of the year, I thought I’d share some Lightroom tips and tricks that I’ve learned this year.
November saw our first monthly photo challenge across G+, Flickr and our new home MeWe. The theme for November’s challenge was fairytales! As well as the usual fun and the chance for the winner’s photograph to adorn the MeWe community’s banner, we also had a fitting prize attached. To go …
Oh no! Not that content jerk again! What’s he doing here?
We’re super stoked to review two Hasbro Star Wars Black Series, thanks to our friends at Big Bad Toy Store (BBTS). They even sent us two extra Black Series to giveaway!
Sure, we’ve all heard of sigfigs, most of us LEGO photographers have one. But what about kitbashing a one sixth scale version of ourselves?
What a ridiculous task it was to pick the winners of the #LEGOdarkArts Riddikulus contest! There were just so many amazing entries, but eventually we have the winners.
It’s time to announce the winners of the 2018 Melbourne Toy Photographers Meetup photo contests!

What goes on BTS when Toy Photographers work with LEGO?

Last weekend Shelly and I had the unenviable task helping judge the winners of Lume Cube’s Ultimate Toy Photo Contest.
…and I’m cool with that! Just because there aren’t photographs of toys being added to my memory cards, it doesn’t mean I’m not still working on toy photography, even if some might call it work!
There’s a plethora of resources out there on evoking emotion and feeling in photography. However, simply adding the word “toy” before photography in a Google search, and the results point to articles of toy photographers that do this, but don’t direct us to tips on how to evoke emotion. Tips …
Last week you might’ve heard a lot of hubbub celebrating the 40th anniversary of the LEGO minifigure. August 29th saw the celebrations kick off! This was the original date that the first patent (Danish) was handed in, in 1977. The first minifigures were not launched until 1978, and hence we …
October in Melbourne. The Royal Melbourne Show. The Melbourne International Arts Festival. The Victorian Seniors Festival. And now the 2018 Melbourne Toy Photographers Meetup! While I was off enjoying myself at the Oregon Toy Photo Safari, Tony (@tonytulloch_tp) and Janan (@spideygoeshygge) organised informal toy photo walk in St. Kilda, Melbourne. …
I’ve been photographing big lately. Voltron. Ninjago dragons. I’ve missed photographing small. And what’s smaller than a hand trowel of moss dug up from our backyard?
