Get ready for some 1980s nostalgia, because this week on the pod I interviewed Eric Ronnebeck, aka @intangibledandy!

Eric and I first met at the Seattle Toy Photo Safari in 2016. Both of us were fairly new to toy photography then, and had yet to really tap into the community. I’ve always been impressed with Eric’s photography, especially his ability to tell long form, serialized stories. In fact it was this very conversation that sparked my recent blog post about breaking mythology rules in toy photography.

In addition to the regular questions about his toy photography beginnings, I asked Eric about his love of 1980s cartoons like He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, Transformers, and G.I. Joe. He shed some light on his past and present storylines, his creative process, how toy safaris have changed him as a photographer, and his recent panel at the Washington State Toy and Geek Fest in Puyallup, Washington. Enjoy the show!

As always, thank you so much for listening! You can find more of Eric’s work on Instagram and connect with him on G+.
