Even before I ever started photographing toys, I was in awe of Preiser’s catalog of miniatures that populate model train sets at a staggeringly small 1:87 to real life (commonly known as HO scale). Though I’ve never shot these figures myself, some of my favorite toy photographers use them.
For our first themed podcast episode of the year, Kristina and I are tackling our biggest challenge yet: Diptychs!
This week’s episode comes courtesy of a recent post from Lizzi, about the new photo project she’s working on this year. I highly encourage you to check it out, not only because it’s a good read but because today’s episode is a bit of a follow-up discussion.
Earlier this month, Shelly wrote about singing the toy photography blues as she steps out of her comfort zone. I truly feel fo her when it comes to leaving photography sessions with more frustration than photos. Yet I couldn’t help but notice that despite having a few similar things on …
Today’s podcast interview took almost a year to record, but I think it was absolutely worth the wait! I spoke with Robert Whitehead, a friend of the blog who you likely know as @shundeez_official on Instagram.
Are you still feeling nostalgic about 2018? Are you still writing an 8 instead of a 9 on all of your checks? Then this is the podcast for you!
Happy New Year! After a brief break the podcast is back, and we’re hitting the ground running with two special guests. I hope you all had a great holiday season, and want to take this moment to thank each and every one of you who listened to this show in …
Well, here we are, folks! The final podcast episode of 2018. It’s a big one too, because I interviewed a truly influential toy photographer and a personal hero of mine: Vesa Lehtimäki , aka @Avanaut.
Wow, what a year! 2018 was my biggest year yet as a toy photographer in so many different ways.
This week, we’ve spared no expense and are traveling to a land before time, to meet Jon Aiken as he captures toy dinosaurs in their natural habitat.
For our last themed podcast episode of the year, Kristina and I tackled one of our biggest subjects yet: Portraiture!
This week on the podcast, I’m replaying an old episode to celebrate some recent news.
This week, our good friend Tony Tulloch returns to the podcast to discuss our new Toy Photographers communities on MeWe and Flickr!
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?
