Product Photography; Toy Store
I was tasked to create product photography for a small independant toy store. They specialise in vintage and antique toys, hence the model choices.
They celebrated the launch of new Lego figures being released which have since gone on to become market leaders. I was then commissioned to photograph Palitoy Action Man action figures, as they had a 40th anniversary limited edition run; the organisers purchased the licences, sourced and found manufacturers overseas and oversaw the complete run of these replica models, which now have become collectors items themselves.
Some of the Action Man models were supplied by the shop, others I had to locate myself from various sources such as second hand shops, collectors markets and eBay.
In total I travelled an estimated 300 miles just to collect and research the materials for the product photography shoot as they had become quite rare in the 40 years since they had been made; the imagery was used in advertising on social media, magazines and in window displays.
