Behind the Scenes with WorkMoreOrLess
Great shot! What first drew you to this medium?
What does this assignment mean to you as a fan, especially now that the original Star Wars saga is reaching its conclusion?
I'm a huge Star Wars fan, and it is an incredible honor to be involved in this toy photography campaign. It’s been fun to reflect on the last several decades of Star Wars stories via my photography. That said, I'm anxiously awaiting The Rise of Skywalker and am very excited for other Star Wars stories coming in the future!
This particular scene reminds me that every hero's journey has not only success, but also failures. It is in those moments that we learn from our mistakes, reevaluate, and grow towards success. As Master Yoda says, “The greatest teacher, failure is.”

A very, very subtle Easter egg made it into my shot! A lot of times when I am building out a scene, I’ll look around to see what is available to act as props or background elements. I needed something large to reflect the blue light, so I placed the 6” scale Black Series First Order Tie Fighter in the background, which worked perfectly!
What do you hope fans will get from your work?
Toy Photography has unexpectedly evolved into a massively enjoyable creative outlet for me over the last few years. I recognize how important it is for everyone to have a personal hobby that is in line with their passions, and I hope that my work provides joy and excitement to those who see it.
Thanks so much for sharing ~ we think you nailed it!
