Toy Photographer: Brian McCarty

Brian McCarty is a toy photographer extraordinaire who has shot for the first three issues of Hi Fructose Magazine. He has a signature, conceptual style where a toy is shot on location. Many of the locations are truly fantastic, and must require a lot of planning.

Brian seems to do really well on the marketing end of photography. Talk about exposure…his photography was just featured on ABC News. Brian’s ePostcard list is definitely worth checking out. The emails are not too frequent, very cleanly designed, and feature his latest work. And issue #3 of Hi Fructose featured a custom view master reel of Brian’s photography – hands down the coolest self promotion piece I’ve ever seen.

Brian recently did a shoot for Scott Beale’s wonderful web hosting company Laughing Squid (pictured above).
