The Lord of the Rings has been my love since the first time I could see the movies in the theater almost 20 years ago.

This project has been something I wanted to do for so long. First, it started when I wanted to see if I could merge portrait photography and toy photography into one image. After some test shots, I came to the conclusion that it was possible.

First I started designing the plans to build the Bilbo hobbit house with a design in some graphic software. After developing the plans, I cut them with a laser on the wood to build the base frame of the house. Then I started building the landscape. After three months of work, I put the final touches of the trees and fences.

All my images are taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Sigma 35mm Art lens. The 35 mm gives the most cinematic look to each of my photos. When I am able to complete the photographic aspect of the diorama, I move on to the shooting of the human model. I use exactly the same lighting and lens settings to make sure all my color tones match in the camera.

When all the photos are ready, I move to Photoshop to compose the image. Adding the sky tends to be the hardest part because I have to make sure that all the lighting is correct with the diorama and the human model to make it look perfect. Each series of photos can take up to three months to complete.
