Happy Valentine’s Day fellow toy photographers!
Taking flight – a six image narrative
A few weeks ago I shared a link in the email newsletter (have you signed up yet?) to an article called Bokeh Photography: Everything you ever wanted to know.
Last year I didn’t start a single photo project. This year, I’m going back to project based photography.
Whilst 2019 is officially here, I’m still looking back at 2018. Here at Toy Photographers we love to do some analysis on our photos, so as part of that this year, I thought I would take a look back at the blog as a whole for 2018. The following is …
After three months of procrastinating, it’s finally time for my review of the Hogwarts Express (Set 75955). This is the final review of the 2018 wave of Harry Potter sets. Why not take a look back at the earlier reviews as well? Hogwarts Great Hall (Set 75954) Hogwarts Whomping Willow …
I honestly can’t believe it’s already almost a week into December. This year has absolutely flown by for me. This time last year I was buried in a full house clean out as we tackled carpet moths. It’s felt a little non-stop since then! It’s not been the best year, …
Warning: this post contains self-indulgent meandering thoughts around the lack of photography in my life right now. Feel free to skip over this post and go explore the new MeWe community or the new Flickr group instead if you don’t feel like reading!
Happy Halloween folks! Make sure you eat lots of sweets and watch scary movies!
It’s time to continue with our Harry Potter reviews! If you missed the previous ones, you can check out my reviews of the Great Hall and the Whomping Willow set before this one, which is taking a look at the Quidditch Match set. As before, this isn’t a ‘bits and …
At the toy safari last week we spent a surprising amount of time around water, especially considering we were in the middle of a city.
The London Toy Safari took place last weekend. We had 12 toy photographers in all, and it was pretty epic.
The London Toy Safari starts tomorrow, and I’ll be hosting 11 Toy Photographers over the weekend, showing them the sights of the city!
After over six years of living in my area, I finally decided to make a little effort to go find some woodland to play in.
A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the LEGO Harry Potter Great Hall (set 75954). This week I want to take a look at a set that expands on that and provides additional opportunities for the toy photographer – the Hogwarts Whomping Willow (set 75953).
With the London meet-up in less than a month, I’ve been preparing madly. Part of this preparation involved getting a set of custom TV Heads (from @krash_override) for the paid participants! If you’ve been following Toy Photographers for a while, you will almost certainly have seen these guys around. Since they …
I was lucky enough to be sent the recent wave of Harry Potter sets by our friends at LEGO so I wanted to spend a post (or 2, or 3) looking at the sets from the toy photographers perspective.
For some years now I’ve been printing my photos in book format.
A few months ago I wasn’t that keen on BrickHeadz. Then I got the Go Brick Yourself set, which was lots of fun and I had a great time photographing it! As did a lot of toy photographers when they got to build themselves at the Oregon toy safari! This …
Anyone who has any involvement with the toy community probably won’t have missed the fact that the LEGO Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts collectible minifigure series just came out.
