Photo processes

Shipmodeler - Photographer

Sometimes it is better to show once than to talk for a long time. Therefore, I capture all stages of model construction in the photo. And even I often look into my photo processes to remember what and how I did on this or that model. Here are all the processes of already built models, as well as the laying of the keel and finish of construction ...

It's a habit to take pictures of me from childhood, sometimes I don't even know what I'm doing, but all the footage is arranged into directories by years, months and dates with the name of the shoot. Now I really needed all this with the advent of my own site - I can share all this material with you! Because I very often ask modelers with experience, and whether they have at least photos of their models and quite often I get a negative answer. This makes it sad, especially when the model is for sale and nothing remains of it.

For my own sailboats, I also arrange a final photo shoot in the studio with good light and a great background. Photos then become great advertising material, and the portfolio model sells faster. And the pictures taken in the process are more for your own archive and for the most curious ...

I myself like to look at my photo processes, as if to relive those exciting moments when something was out of the way, or vice versa. And now I'm happy to share my archive with you ...

Schooner COLUMBIA – in a bottle

The Columbia schooner 1923 became my first model in a bottle and it came as a result of moving to a new country, until I have a new workshop and have no opportunity to continue a large project - I can try myself on a small scale M1: 640. Have wanted to try to build a model in a bottle for a long time ...

H.M.S. VICTORY - 1765

The VICTORY keel on my shipyard table was laid at the end of 2011. Then three and a half years was a pause. Since January 2017, I have taken this model firmly and not distracted, until the complete completion and installation of the pennant and covering the model with a glass cap in June 2019 (that is, the full 4 and a half years it took to build this ship) ...

H.M.A.V. Bounty – 1787

Kiel H.M.A.V. Bounty in my shipyard on the table was laid in June 2012, when all the details of the power hull from EAGLEMOSS magazines were collected, but the ship was built with a break of more than a year. In fact, the assembly took 3 years, but the process ended in November 2016 ...

Bot St. Gabriel – 1728

The keel of the little St. Gabriel bot in my shipyard was laid in early April 2014. Construction went on, almost every spare minute was devoted to this model. Received a lot of pleasure from the quality set, which she received as a gift at the Championship of Ukraine 2014 (Kiev). In fact, it took three and a half months to complete the process - it ended the process at the end of July 2014 ...
