bringing toys alive
Welcome to Photoy72.
My name is Paul Massey, a photographer from Stockton Heath, Cheshire with a passion for action figures, quirky toys and creating a world in which they can live through digital photography.
My son, Bobby would fill the house with his toys, mainly Lego and Thomas The Tank Engines. Now and again I would take a photo of them in amusing situations and they would get a few laughs on social media.
Fast forward to 2020 and I have created an ever growing profile of toy art that has been recognised by The Wonderfactory, an exclusive pop art gallery based in Singapore.
I am part of a worldwide community especially on Instagram where I have made some very good friends who all share the same passion for toy photography and inspire me everyday.
During mid summer I was also chosen as 1 of 100 photographers worldwide to take part in The Exclu Class 2020, a collection of toy photographers from all over the globe.
There are no rules with toy photography, it's an amazing hobby and your imagination is it's only limitation.
