Scale models photography
I accept orders for photographing scale models such as tanks, planes, vehicles and other military and civil technics.
I have perennial experience in professional product photography. Moreover, it happened that for the last few years my good fellow, highest level modeler Dmitry Skurkis asked me for shooting his works. If my first attempts in 2009, was just not bad (Wespe gun carrier and Panther), by the moment, I managed really good result (Abrams, D9R, T-90 and others).
Though I provide high quality photos, my prices are at average level. Why? Well, I think it’s because I really interested in WWII history and, in general, in different mechanics. For your money, you’ll get not only images for web using but also photos acceptable for big size printing.
If you are a modeler, but not sure about professional photographs of your works think about participation in scale model contests. Sooner or later, you’ll come to this wish. And believe me: quality image of your model showing all the stunning little things and details (like ammo belt loaded in the machine gun, drinking water bottles with labels in the box on the tank’s gun turret, dust and dirt on caterpillar’s tracks and so on). Such photos are at minimum half of success!
You can learn historical photos of some concrete tank from certain division for months and then make truly legendary model spending on it few years, assembling it from different sets by different manufacturers, ordering metal cannon and tracks from another one, making some of the details by yourself cutting it from plastic pieces; then masterly paint the model showing tiny attritions, cleavages and bullet holes with the surgery precision, and then… photograph it with your old good compact camera using table lamp light! And as a result, your model loses to the significantly weaker one made by some awkward newbie but shot by professional photographer with hi-end equipment…
Once, Dmitry said to me: “On your photos, my models look even better than in reality!” So, when you’ll be ready, contact me. You can mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org or fill the contact form on Contacts page with your order details. We will approve date and time of shooting and quantity of images.
Furthermore, if you have any ideas about the best frames, I will certainly use them because nobody in the world knows your model better than you!
