Toy Photographer // Lowepro Storyteller


Thankful for Family


This is an image I created for the Lowepro Storytellers Blog, my first one created as a Lowepro Storyteller. Every month Lowepro gives their team of Storytellers a theme to create an image around. The theme for November was "thankful."  The word "Thankful" can have many different meanings depending on the context it's used in.  For me, I am thankful for my family.  You can see the actual post on the Lowepro blog HERE.

Toy Photography // Hot Wheels Star Wars


Hot Wheels & Other Cool Rides

Here's an assortment of amazing Hot Wheels Star Wars vehicles and other toys.  All were created using practical effects, meaning everything was photographed in the scene in real time, with minimal digital effects added for laser blasts and rocket thrust.

Los Angeles Toy Photographer // Toy Story Series


Toy Story - To Infinity and Beyond!!

I create amazing Toy Story imagery using real toys.  Images are created using practical effects. Flying objects, cracked eggs, smoke, fire, splashing liquids... all real, and all photographed real time in the scene.

California Toy Photographer // Lego Minifigures


LEGO Minifigure Photography


These three images are my first foray into LEGO photography.  The top image, titled Emergence, is featured in the gorgeous LEGO photography magazine, Bricks Culture.  

LEGO Minifigures are just that... mini figures.  They measure roughly 1.50" tall and have minimal articulation. Given this, they still allow amazing stories to be told and photograph beautifully.

My toy photography is created using practical effects. Flying dirt and debris, smoke, fire, splashing liquids... all real, and all photographed real time in the scene.
