I did not realize, until the end, that these were models. Absolutely amazing!

I remember some of those cars very well! Enjoy!

Wow! What a talented man.

Did he make the cars or just the buildings and landscapes? I wish he told us a bit more about it!

I believe that the buildings are models, too, but that they have been superimposed onto real landscape photos.

@Setanta,
I was thinking that he green screened several setups but theres one in which a laeyer of trees is between a background building and then another set of buildings. (Maybe the second set of buildings was greenscreened too)

Very skillful work. Hecould be a matte scene artist for the pitcher shows.

I sent this to a friend of mine who makes dioramas for train setups.

It certainly is a talented display. Most dioramas don't impress me, but if he did one, i have a feeling that it would be very convincing.

I was reading around his site a bit -- he takes the models out to a location for the scenery and monkeys around to get the right perspective:

I have received a ton of responses to the Photo Shoot Setup.

I enjoy giving away trade secrets, so here is that exact same setup, but it's at camera level. You can see how the trees, which are about a block away, are in the proper perspective to the model.

As for myself being in the shot, it has nothing to do with vanity. Really.


I do look like the prototype for the Abominable Snowman from the Rudolf the Reindeer Christmas special.

Far out, Boom . . . thanks.

His method is even cooler than using a green screen, a blue screen or photoshopping the pics.

@boomerang,
I love that picture! He's such a benevolent goofball presence there.

@sozobe,
HA!, just like the time Uncle Stash shot me holding this little sunfish except I was waay back so the sunfish looked like Andre the Giantfish.

So he laid that entire little snow table top out in the countryside. Vera kewl.
