Around the Web

So some exciting things have been happening lately in regards to my images elsewhere on the web.

First up. I occasionally participate in Ted Forbe’s photo assignments (you should too). And to my delight, one of my photos was chosen to be featured for Photo Assignment #12. Find me at 2:03.

The image featured in this video is from a book cover I designed for my dad’s book Working Would be Great if it Weren’t for Managershere, find it .

Next, check out Anto Nova’s 1st 2 online shows – Grand Opening, and Black & White. Their next gallery – Geometric will be on view starting November 1 and you can submit now to the themes Nature and Sculpture.

And finally, if you’d like to learn more about me and my work, check out my interview on OmArtist.

Want to know more about me and my thoughts on creativity? Check out these places around the web where I’ve been lucky enough to share all about it.


First on April 10th I was featured on the instagram account PopShopLive. An instagram interview was definitely a first for me, and what an honor it was being featured along side such widely followed toy photo accounts.

Jennifer Nichole Wells,(@jennifernicholewells) from Jacksonville, Florida, USA has a cool story about action figures collection and toy photography. Read a bit more, comment below to send love! What got you into action figures/action figure photography? I started officially photographing toys in college. For me, they are the best way to create narrative and emotion photographically. Where do you usually get your figures? Really anywhere. I think of what I want to photograph then look for figures that will work. Primarily though, I'd say Amazon and eBay. What’s your fav action figure photo so far? Right now I'm really feeling an image I made with Argus from the Acid Rain line where he's holding the hand of a little girl, both wearing gas masks, in the middle of a desert. What’s the craziest thing you have done to get a figure/figure photo? Honestly, I don't know. I mostly shoot inside so nothing seems too adventurous. I did set a mini wooden barn on fire in the bathroom once though and last time I shot outside I had 2 stray cats rolling around under where I was squatting to get the shot with angry geese approaching from the other side. What inspired you to start this Instagram? I've been on instagram for awhile- since 2012 or so. I joined just to have one, since it was the thing all of my friends were getting at the time. However, only in the past 6 months or so have I really focused my account, consistently hashtagged, gotten to know other instagrammers, etc. What's your favorite action figure photography IG account? I have to say either @the_left_hand_side or @decomp_rob. Very different accounts, but both really cool guys and great photographers.
