MOTU Origins Stinkor and LOP Mer-Man

My favorite Masters of the Universe character (after Skeletor) finally got his Origins entry. Behold Stinkor, Evil Master of Odors. I pre-ordered mine from BigBadToyStore and it just arrived. Take a look as I take a few pics and give him a sniff test. Bonus, I also got Lords of Power MerMan so I have a few pics of him too. Click below to see more, PLUS (it just keeps coming) a brief behind-the-scenes video of creating this Stinkor scene. Go ahead and read more!

Time Travelers Poker Game

During quarantine, I’ve filled my time by giving myself complex photo assignments. I thrive on having a project that I can’t solve immediately. I need to work out composition, sourcing props, figuring out lighting, taking the photo and finalizing it for its final form. My latest photo composition asks what if pop culture’s time travelers that visited the old west all played poker together?

Civil War Poker Game

Attempt 3 - Candle light
Of all the historical time periods, I’ve always been the most fascinated with the American Civil War. I grew up close enough to Antietam and Gettysburg National Parks that my family visited often, and I felt the most connected to that moment in history because of those family trips. I recently rekindled my obsession with Civil War paraphernalia and decided to use this extended time at home to challenge myself to making an accurate studio photo suitable for framing and hanging in your game room. Read on for the research I did and the lighting process to get the perfect shot. …continue reading Civil War Poker Game

Playmobil in the studio


I got some sweet playmobil sets for Christmas, including this shuttle and launchpad. A friend of ours has a fog machine so I thought I’d take over a handful of sets and try out how the fog works in a studio setting. Click below for more pics and get excited for Toy Fair!
