I've been photographing my kid's toys over the years, Lego, fluffy animals and whatnot. The Clone/Star Wars action figures proved to be such a joy to shoot that I decided to put some of them on Flickr. Then I made some Lego photographs, too.
My photography has been featured on some websites, here's some of them:
Wired (uk), Gizmodo, Geeks of Doom, and Brothers Brick
In March 2011 Flickr itself blogged some of my photos. That was fun.
In August 2012 gizmodo.com blogged again, this was about the spaceships poster.
A really nice Feb 2013 Wired interview about the Lego on Hoth photographs.
Then, the holiest of the holy: Lego did a piece on their website.
It's been good.
Some photos I have not uploaded here can be found in my Instagram account. There is also a Facebook page and a Twitter feed: @TheAvanaut.
If I'm a little slow to response to questions it's due to a heavy workload I'm experiencing from time to time (it's a good thing). Some correspondence left to my photostream may just slip thru altogether without me catching it.
All images are fully copyrighted, please do not use them without permission.
if you like what I do and you want to do the same, please go ahead, I love to see your photographs too, but remember, be polite and let everyone know where you got your ideas. Be a good sport.

"Always an inspiration - imho the best lego/toy-photographer on the web. Nuff said? No. He combines great technical skills (photography, editing) with innovative setups and methods and often great humor.
Master of Hoth, movement and action in photography and a really nice guy to communicate with."
