"The best way to learn photography is doing photography" - Daniel Sands Interview

Updated: Mar 28

Daniel Sands is a computer programmer from Dorset with a passion for photography. When he set up a Facebook page in late 2016, his work gained him an incredible 500 followers in the first month, and he continues to experiment with the art.

His recent toy photography project, "Bricks From Another Galaxy", started when he couldn't leave his home as frequently due to COVID restrictions, and decided to try something new.

This stemmed into an ongoing series of incredibly realistic toy photography, where he recreates iconic scenes from the Star Wars films using LEGO and homemade special effects, which has gained a lot of attention online.

During our conversation, Daniel talks about how he got into photography, the processes behind his work, and how accessible he believes the art is.
