This is a cute category we have included in our website. Each year we produce 13 images for Bartel calendars and then add them to our website. We try to bring teddy to life and include him in everyday activities. He travels all over Australia, he has quite a social life. Based in Port Macquarie, he likes to fish and together with his business partner out to sea and bring back fish for market. As you can see in this image he has all the required equipment.
This image is photographed in Port Macquarie and the teddies are shot in my studio. The two images are then deep etched and worked on to produce this great shot.
Teddy also likes to take his family on Picnics, this shot is of Bermagui on the South Coast NSW.
The Teddies are shot in the studio, and then deep etched into the scene. The lighting is the most important part, you need the Teddies to have the same lighting as the scene otherwise the image looks fake. We like to add all the bits and pieces to make up the scene. This is one of our favourite parts, shopping for props. All the little intricate detailed objects like the fruit the sandwiches, fishing rods, kite and surf boards everything a family would take with them on their picnic or day out.
The next image is for all those surfers out there, we have the surf boards on some very cute VW beetles. The guys have had their surf and are now enjoying an ice cream, and before the drive back home. The background image is of Yabbarra Beach near Narooma on the South Coast NSW.
And for the final image for this blog we have added Santa Teddy and his six white Boomers, in the outback on His Australian run.
Merry Christmas everyone, hope you enjoy the adventures of Teddys World. More of these delightful images can be viewed on our website www.owenwilson.net.au in the category Teddys World.
