OUR EARLY DAYS

WITH BLUEBIRD TOYS - ZERO HOUR

In 1989 to 1990 Richard Dixon was principal photographer and set designer for Bluebird Toys of Swindon on its ZERO HOUR Toy Range .

 

This turned out to be my chance to show the Toy Industry that pack shots and straight forward advertising for toys could be done in an attractive creative way using photography and model animation .

 

Zero Hour successfully showed the way.....in Catalogue Photography Presentation , Exhibition Design at the Toy Fair in London / Harrogate and in Children's Comics......TPD Studios presented an alternative way to show and display products to their best advantage.....give the products a realistic presentation at minimum cost...the technique was very successful .

 

It launched Richard Dixon's style of model animation photography to the Toy Industry and Children's Publishing which has continued in his work to the present day...

****************************************************************************************

OUR EARLY DAYS WITH HASBRO TOYS

Richard Dixon followed Zero Hour Toys in 1990 with a move on to Hasbro Toys UK .....taking on the ACTION FORCE  Brand with extensive photography on the Range . Images here show Stealth Jet X 19 and Rolling Thunder land attack vehicle in a Marvel Comics advertisement 1990 . He then moved on to the USA Range of GI JOE which was being sold on a limited basis in the UK and Europe . The images above are from GI JOE SKY PATROL....the submarine craft SKY SHARC with two of the characters in the SKY PATROL range .

The large green assault vehicle is the GI JOE Warthog . Launched in the USA and the UK into the range in 1990 and 1991.

 

All Art Direction , Photography , Set Design and Build by Richard Dixon . All Images copywrite Hasbro Toys UK ...The images should not be used without permission of HASBRO TOYS UK .

RICHARD DIXON'S PHOTOGRAPHY

 

 HOW IT STARTED , WHERE ITS BEEN , AND WHERE WE ARE GOING ...........

 

Richard Dixon started photography for the Toy Industry and Children's Comics in 1989 following a College Photography Course in Blackpool and ten years photographing portraits , weddings and general product advertising photography in the North West of England .

 

The starting of photography with the Toy Industry followed a period of work practice in the Financial Services Sector with National Savings over a number of years . His skills in photography were soon realised by the Management of National Savings in their staff news magazine and photographing the Miss Premium Bond Contest for the Government Agency . This work quickly introduced him to Public Relations Managers for Companies in Lancashire who helped spread the quality of his work to a larger audience with articles in the regions newspapers and magazines  .

 

Advertising photography was his next target in the Entertainment and Leisure Industry in the North West who started to use Richard's photography in an increasing number of areas . Trust House Forte Leisure , Odeon Cinemas and First Leisure Corporation were the first to use his talents in promotions and photography of their Leisure Centres , Hotels and in their Theatre promotions .

 

His next move forward was unexpected , into the Toy Industry following a chance meeting with Animation Director Mark Hall from Cosgrove Hall Animation Studios in Manchester . With Mark's guidance and encouragement Richard began to learn the art of photographing miniatures at his Television Studio in Manchester .

Other professional meetings followed with Gerry Anderson and Ray Harryhausen the Monster Animation Film Modelmaker .

 Richard started to learn how to film models on miniature sets with Movie and TV style presentation techniques and then apply them to his own projects . He produced a set of demonstration toy photography images of his work which would form a presentation to take and show the Toy and Publishing Industries what he could achieve with his techniques.

 

With his presentation folio and an extensive mail shot publicity drive he began his journey forwards into the Toy Industry and Children's Comics.

 

Soon his miniature photography product work started to become noticed by Toy Company Marketing Directors and the first to give him a chance on a major product for Toy Advertising was Bluebird Toys in Swindon.

 

They allowed him to create his new realistic style with presentations for their new product line in 1990 - ZERO HOUR....with Catalogue photography ...posters...model display dioramas for the Toy Fair in London and Harrogate...Christmas Display in Hamleys London...and his first advertising pictures in childrens comics.

Richard also assisted the Bluebird Marketing Director and the TV Commercials Director in setting up the model production sets at the filming of the TV Commercials for the Zero Hour Brand / Manta Force and Polly Pocket at Jacob Street Studios in London during his time when he worked for the Company .

 

More presentations of his work followed to 3D Licensing / Kenner Toys / Griffin Bacal Advertising Agency London and Universal Pictures with Saachi and Saachi in London for the movie Robin Hood Prince of Thieves Licensed Toy Range for Europe as his work style gained interest from the top Companies dealing with the Toy Industry .

 

Richard's new style of presentation with Zero Hour quickly came to the attention of Hasbro's Marketing Department in London and he was asked to start producing work for their Action Force Range and continued with Hasbro's GI JOE Range.

 

Additional work assignments followed from Bluebird Toys to promote their MIGHTY MAX range.....

 

Then Hasbro's ACTION MAN was re-launched in the UK after many years. It was the end of 1996 .

 

Richard produced three concept presentations of images for the Action Man Product to show how his new realistic work style could be used to benefit the advertising of the product .The images were shown to Hasbro's Creative Director Edward Catchpole who immediately gave Richard the go ahead to take the work to their Licensing Associates to be used in the promotions for the product range.

 

Some of the first Licensing work was completed with Richard's TPD STUDIOS for GEMMA CARDS who released an Action Man Greeting Card Range which featured this new realistic style of photography presentation . Pedigree Books took further images for their Action Man Annual Cover and inside pages .

 

Marvel Comics in the UK under Panini Publishing had also just launched ACTION MAN COMIC . It was early 1997 and now required some additional photography for the new Comic.

With Hasbro's help Richard produced two sample covers , Action Man Raid Cover MAY 1997 and Action Man Sniper Cover JUNE 1997  for the Comic using his realistic photomation work style . Both covers were accepted for publication . The journey forward with Action Man had started for Richard Dixon and his model animation style of work which would take him on to a whole new level of professional work .

 

Richard was asked to come on board and join the Marvel Comics UK team working on the Action Man Comic and he started to produce a series of realistic images for the comic......and to continue with them over the  next eight years with the creation of over 60 fantastic realistic cover pictures and posters....lots of competition pages photography and Action Man support material ....his style of realistic photography images were now getting national recognition across the industry .

 

With the success of the ACTION MAN COMIC pictures , Marvel Comics UK owners PANINI UK gave Richard's Studio the opportunity to create a series of realistic Photo Story Special Editions of the Comic .

Using Model Animation on model sets and movie style photography techniques with real backgrounds ...fifteen photo story concepts were written and produced by him before handing over to his Editors to prepare the dialogue sections and finishing for publication , sets were designed and photographed at the Toy Photo Design Studio in Lancashire by Richard over a number of years......the ACTION MAN COMIC SUMMER and WINTER Specials selling over half a million copies in sales.....a superb window for the Action Man Product and proved a very successful Comic in the UK
