Q: How did you get started doing photography of action figures and is there a particular name for the type of photography/design you do?
A: I kinda got tired of seeing photos of action figures just standing and doing nothing. Since I do photography as a hobby and like buying figures that looks interesting to me, I might as well take it a step up. As far as I know, there's no actual name for it, it's just toy photography.
Q: A lot of the background designs are just as attention grabbing as the figures. How much staging is involved for a single shot?
A: It really depends on the figure. I try to do research about the character first before I shoot them, so at least whoever is looking at the photo, especially if they are a fan of the character, they would see some connection rather than "oooh nice figure on a pretty background."
Q: The Toy Story character Woody is prominently featured in your photography. What about the figure inspires you to implement him in so many different images/settings?
A: His hilarious facial expression. Most of the situation that he's on now wasn't initially intended for him. It was originally for another figure, figma Billy Harrington.
Q: Many of the photos incorporating Woody have overt sexual overtones that seem tongue in cheek. Do you prefer making actions shots or more satirical photos?
A: I like doing both. With action shots I tend to take my time on researching the character background whereas the challenge on satire photos is putting them on a situation you haven't seen before so it doesn't get old fast among the audience.
Q: You recently released a short video for your collection of "Juggernaut v. " photography. Can people expect more short videos in the future?
A: Yes, there will be more. It won't happen on all postings but most definitely you can expect more in the future since it's the next step to keep the audience entertained.
