Hello fellow Toy Photographers!
We love our fellow toy photographers and would like to inspire others to join us in this fun hobby. To meet this goal we enjoy featuring a variety of photographers as part of our Feature Friday series. These features are a combination of a blog post on the site as well as being featured on our various social media channels and email newsletter.
These features are by invite only and we appreciate that you have agreed to be a part of this series. If you have gotten a link to this page please email the corresponding answers to the ToyPhotographers.com team member who reached out to you along with the photos.
We ask that you look over the list of questions below and choose your favorites five to ten to answer. In addition to your answers please send over a few photos that we can add to your post. We will need at least five photos, one of them a strong horizontal that we can use for the lead image of the post and as our social media image. Please choose images that you love, that you’re proud of or that you mention in your answer.
If you have any questions about the process please reach out to the team member who originally solicited you, email us at email@example.com or contact Shelly Corbett at firstname.lastname@example.org or via social media.
