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.
In a very special edition of the podcast, I’m joined by Shelly and Brett to discuss our recent LEGO Ideas Voltron project! Form Voltron! Due to scheduling conflicts and the last-minute nature of this recording, I wasn’t able to assemble all of our Voltron Paladins. Anna, David and Janan were sadly absent …
Just before the Oregon Toy Photo Safari, the fine folks at Spider Holster offered to send me a few products to review for the podcast and blog. They didn’t arrive in time for the meetup, but the recent Voltron shoot gave me the chance to get out of the studio …
This week on the podcast, I’m joined by friendly neighborhood photographer Janan Lee, a.k.a. Spideygoeshygge!
On this week’s episode of the podcast, Kristina and I tackle Still Life photography!
In the mood for a good binge watch this weekend? Check out these shows and movies that seem to be made just for toy photographers!
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.
