This is a podcast episode six months in the making! After inviting Dave DeBaeremaeker onto the show in person at the Oregon Toy Photo Safari this May, we were finally able to sit down and record an interview.
And we’re back! Thank you for bearing with me for the last few weeks as I’ve been sick. I’m itching to get back into recording the podcast, and am excited to have recorded another one of our themed episodes with Kristina.
I love photography projects. Or, to be honest, what I really love is starting photography projects. Because while I always have a project or two (or three) in the works, I don’t think I’ve ever really finished one. And that usually means not posting the photos at all…
I’ve got an odd show lined up for you this week, as I recover from a cold and get back into the swing of things.
The longer I’ve been an artist, the more phases and routines I’ve gone through. Lately, it’s been watching horror movies while I photograph.
After a busy month of podcasting, it was fun and refreshing to reunite with Kristina to discuss our latest theme, “Reflections.”
In three days, I’ll reach a major creative milestone: My 5 year anniversary as a toy photographer! So why does it feel like I’m just getting started?
After Sunny joined us on the podcast for the Lume Cube roundtable review, I immediately invited him back to do a full interview. He’s been on my list of hopeful guests since the podcast started, as he’s one of my favorite toy photographers and has such a unique style.
Get ready for a big episode of the podcast this week, because I interviewed Johnny Wu, aka SgtBananas! Johnny has been called an “Instagram sensation” by outlets like the Wall Street Journal and Yahoo, had a book of his work published by Dynamite Comics, and has worked with big companies …
For the last 9 months, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing toy photographers from around the world for over 30 episodes (and counting!) of the podcast. When first pitching the show to Shelly and Brett, I hoped it could be an extension of the “Why?” posts we do here on the …
Our coverage of the Lume Cube and their toy photography contest continues on the podcast this week, with another roundtable discussion! This time Shelly, Brett and I are joined by our good friend Sunny Ang, aka @zekezachzoom.
This week on the podcast, I interviewed Lume Cube’s head of marketing, Trevor Farrow, to discuss the upcoming toy photography contest happening throughout the rest of the month!
This week I learned that sticks and stones don’t just break bones, they also make excellent additions to your indoor photo studio!
I may be biased, but I’m thrilled for this month’s themed episode of the podcast. This was one of our best themes to date. So good in fact, that we invited a special guest onto the show to discuss it!
Get ready for some 1980s nostalgia, because this week on the pod I interviewed Eric Ronnebeck, aka @intangibledandy!
I’ve been a toy photographer now for nearly five years, and this week something happened to me for the first time: I had someone steal my photos and post them as their own!
Since we didn’t end up doing a full review of the new LEGO Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them collectible minifigures here on the blog, I thought it would be fun to do so in podcast form!
Anyone who’s read the blog knows that we often ponder the rules. Both Shelly and Dave have discussed various ‘rules’ of photography, and when it might be better to break them. But what about mythology rules?
Now that we’ve tried taking Still Life photography with toys, Kristina and I have moved on to another classic photography style: Landscapes!
I’ve written before about my own struggle with depression and how I’ve used toy photography as a therapy. So it should come as no surprise that my ears perked up when I first discovered #WithToysInMind on Instagram.
