Skilful Model Makers and Photographers Demonstrate their Creativity
At Everything Dinosaur we get sent in pictures of all sorts of prehistoric animals. It never ceases to amaze us how creative our customers are and some of their studio shots and model scenes are absolutely fantastic. However, to get that realistic shot of a dinosaur, to reproduce a scene from a movie, you don’t necessarily have to be limited to working indoors. Even in the north of England, in between the showers you can get the chance to set up a dinosaur themed diorama in a garden.
A border can become a backdrop to an encounter between an Allosaurus and a Barosaurus, the garden pond can become a watering hole for a herd of hungry horned dinosaurs, some of the imaginative shots sent into our offices are very creative and extremely skilfully done.
Take this example, using a Papo Tyrannosaurus rex figure sent into us by Alan. Using the right vegetation, careful lighting and interesting angles some amazing shots can be achieved.

When we were discussing how this photograph had been staged, it reminded us of the Tyrannosaurs seen at theme parks that are situated around corners so that you come across them unexpectedly. Alan refer to the Papo range of models as “stars”, they are ideal for his photographic work. The fine details and dramatic poses make them excellent subjects for Alan’s creative endeavours.
