Trevor Williams Author

Trevor is a New York-based Creative Director and owner of The Brand Counselors. He has a growing collection of 150ish 1:6th scale stock and custom figures (and more and more Lego sets). Toy photography melds his childhood dreams of comic book illustration and film directing with his design talents and - in his mind - justifies the ridiculous money he spends on these things. When he's not shooting, he enjoys kayaking, catching up on good TV and building seemingly endless custom figures.
