When setting out to create our first issue our first port of call was to the hugely talented Jason Yang who has supported our project from day one.
His enthusiasm and can-do attitude comes through strongly in his photography as he remains one step ahead of the trend. His “Toys with Toys” series immediately made Jason stand out and drew us in to take a further look at his work. From there we were fortunate enough to get him on board for a conversation in our debut issue. Take a look at what he had to say in this small excerpt from our discussion :
“First of all, it states in your bio on Instagram ‘a place to play’ when you’re not working, but how big a part of your life is your toy photography?
To be honest, it has definitely become a much larger part of my life than I had ever expected. I try to stay consistent by posting a handful of new toy photos throughout the week which also means I’m shooting pretty frequently after work hours in the evenings. Having three kiddos who love toys just as much as I do also makes “playing” with toys way more enjoyable as an adult. Over the years my wife has also come to recognise that I probably won’t ever grow up and has truly been my best supporter. I’ll be the first to admit that taking pictures of toys is pretty nerdy, but I love it!
You’re page is really going strong with just over five thousand followers, but what was the main goal when you originally set up workmoreorless?
I still can’t believe that @workmoreorless just recently passed the 5K followers mark! For the last couple of years I started to see an abundance of toy photos pop up in my personal instagram feed. At the beginning of 2016 I decided to invest in a professional camera and give it a try why should they be the only ones having all the fun, right? When I created my @workmoreorless account I really didn’t have any goals other than to just have fun while sharing my appreciation for toys through my toy photos.“
