Toys Around Town 01

Posted by Daniel Picard (Ottawa, Canada) on 13 January 2011 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

This photo ends my visit at the old mansion but starts a new one as well featuring my toy collection.

I've been collecting robots and army guys collectibles for a few years now because A) the quality these artists are now getting out of 12" of plastic and fabric is just amazing - making them very interesting 3D works of art to collect for me, and B) they allow me to bring "models" to on-location shoots and create photos that are very different than the rest of my portfolio.

And as a side-note, one of my favourite design/photo magazine "Applied Arts" made a nice article about me and these toy photos a few months back if anybody is interested:

I've been reading their magazines for like 15 years now, so I was very happy when I received their email saying the article was happening :)
