A JOURNEY THROUGH MY CREATIVE WORK FROM 1988 TO THE PRESENT AND BEYOND..........

 

With any story ....a begining.....for me it started late in 1988 when I decided to take my work into a new direction .

 

Following nineteen years of photography work in the north west of England covering Portraits , Weddings , Theatre Entertainment Photography and General Advertising work for Trust House Forte - Entam Ltd - EMI - FIRST LEISURE CORPORATION - ODEON CINEMAS , I moved into the UK Toy Industry and Children's Comics .

 

This new direction for me over the next thirty two years would use my creative talents and imagination across many areas of the Toy Industry , Children's Publishing Projects and the Greetings Card Industry .

 

I have worked with many Companies over these years.....with big and small projects.....the list of the Companies and the Products are endless...many I don't remember now ....they were extremely busy times.......but here are some of them.....

Kenner Toys - Bluebird Toys - Hasbro Toys - Mattel Toys - Marvel Comics - Panini Comics - Titan Comics - MGA Toys USA  - Toontastic Comics - Cartoon Network Comic - Warner Bros Looney Toons - GEMMA Cards - Pedigree Books  and many more......

............    some of the best products in the Toy Business have passed through my studios over the years .

 

ACTION MAN - THE BRATZ - MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE - GI JOE ACTION FORCE - LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER - TRANSFORMERS - BUTT UGLY MARTIANS - POWER RANGERS - QUAKE 2 - MASK - MEGA FORCE - MANTA FORCE - MIGHTY MAX - BETTY SPAGHETTI - PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - SPIDERMAN - DIGIMON - and my own Photo-Story productions have now been released to join them on the web....SEASTAR 5 - SINBAD GOLD RAIDER HEROES - MAGNUS JONES STARJET RANGERS 2400AD.........

 

I am currently working on a new British Sci-Fi feature film called "Of Infinite Worlds" over the next months and into 2021 as a Production Designer Creator of studio sized sci-fi spacecraft miniatures for the film production .

 

The next photo story series "MAGNUS JONES STARJET RANGERS 2400AD" has also started production and more images will be appearing on the web site over the coming months.....

 

I hope you enjoy looking through my work.......
