My work career in visual media started in 1970  following a College Photography Course which took me into Commercial Photography , Entertainment Industry Photography in Theatres , Wedding and Portrait Photography , Motor Sport Photography of Formula One - Formula Two -Touring Cars....and Advertising Product Studio Photography .

My two previous websites have been brought together with my Toy Industry work since this site was created in  2016 .

This new website features a showcase of my visual media work from my career , covering most of the last thirty five years .

The studio based in Lancashire , north west England is the home of my supermation photo art style of realistic model animation creations .

The studio website has received over 173,000 viewers , with over 2000 visitors  to the site each month looking in on my latest imagery creations .

The studio also created over sixty cover shots for the monthly Action Man Comic  , together with over two hundred poster pictures during the eight years I worked for Marvel Comics UK / Panini Comics UK / Hasbro Toys UK .

In the Greetings Card Industry I created seven very successful supermation style Action Man Birthday Cards designs for the UK based Company GEMMA CARDS , together with realistic photography of Action Man for the Book Annuals published by PEDIGREE BOOKS .

In 2012 - 2014 following on from my work with Marvel Comics UK , Action Man Photostory Specials , I started the development work to create my own new SUPERMATION PHOTOSTORIES CONCEPT IDEAS for an original story to be made at a studio in Lancashire , England .

This new concept would evolve into SEASTAR 5 , following a pilot production called SEASTAR ONE .

The work was featured in UK Film - TV Media Magazine "INFINITY" in three Editions .

The American website " Animation World " , the UK websites " Moonbase Central - Projectswordtoys " ,  " Small Scale World Blogspot " , " BBC Radio Lancashire Website " ....all featured my original Photostory Series Concept "SEASTAR 5 INVADERS FROM THE ABYSS .

The Children's undersea adventure series has also been featured on a further twenty media sites across the web in the last five years........

The production has featured on this website only as a promotional presentation to show a version of it and how it might look if released in a picture book format . 

 

I entered the UK Film Industry in 2020 for the first time to design and create eight individual studio sized  miniature spacecraft models for two new British Sci-Fi Feature Films being produced by Simon Cox called "Of Infinite Worlds" .

These exciting movies currently being created in England together will once again show my modelwork visual designs to a world wide audience .

Previews of these miniatures can now be viewed on this website .

 

My Studio in 2022 is currently in the development and production of its first series of Children's Supermation Illustrated Storybooks , based on my original idea story concepts  and designs for SEASTAR 5 INVADERS FROM THE ABYSS .

This exciting series of story books which will be launched early in 2023 , will feature five new super creation format episodes in the first series of a serialized storyline release .

The new presentation has a completely updated look in every way .

 

Supermation Imagery has now arrived....we will see where it goes.....

 

Three idea concepts have been written ....SEASTAR 5 - STEAMBOAT JACK - MAGNUS JONES AND THE STARJET RANGERS.....

All these new storybooks are being developed and made in a new Supermation Images Style of presentation .

 

The production process starts with a series of model animation style art designs with the use of original photography and the creation of miniature set production design , together with cut outs , original clip art on superphoto art  picture screens .

All this is then blended together in a photoshop image through a photo realism filter process , additional drawn artwork may form part of the image .

Finally a digital paint process is applied to the end image before a presentation of the image release .

 

Please stay with us over the coming months.....the future looks fantastic in my 21st century world of the imagination....hopefully you all will like what we are now doing....stay tuned....

 

Thanks for reading my history......
