A not-unexpected-in-hindsight confluence between my genre writing, my interest in microfiction and fan fiction, and my lifelong love of that subset of dolls often ascribed the avoidant term “action figure” has resuled in the emergence of my practice as a toy photographer.
What started as something more akin to a hobby has become something I am devoting serious creative energy to as I populate my growing toy-photo Instagram account with photos of little plastic people accompanied by tiny fictions speculating about what might be going on inside the heads of superheroes, aliens, monsters, robots, cyborgs et al.
If that sounds like something that might float your boat, there’s a cornucopia of colourful creatures waxing philosophical over on Instagram at @adamfigurephotography, plus a few samples from said IG below to give you a taste. You can click on each of the pics below to read the full story attached to each in their natural habitat over on IG.
I’ve also written a bit about my toy photography for the Toy Photographers blog – you can read those articles under my contributor profile over there.
