As always Rob was fantastic to work with. He pays great attention to the lighting and detail and really captured the perfect atmosphere for the products. Highly recommend.

Fear of the Deep Series 2 is the new collection of figures by artist and sculptor Tom Rush aka Creaturehut. Tom digitally sculpted each figure, then created a mould and cast each set out in bright neon colours. The figures have been created in a similar vein to the classic Monsters in my pocket series from both mine and Tom's childhoods. With the shoot we both wanted to create something that had a similar look and feel to the toy adverts that you would see in comics and the Argos catalogue circa 1985.
For the shoot Tom created a custom backdrop with moveable pieces, allowing us to recompose for the individual close up shots. All images were shot on a 50 megapixel Phase One medium format camera.
The project has just launched on Kickstarter, so be sure to check it out through the link on darkheartwood . co . uk
