Interview with Sci-fi & Fantasy photographer Darrell of BGZ Studios

Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Darrell: My name is Darrell and I currently live in the Atlanta area. I photograph awesome cosplay and costumes from all over the country.. i absolutely love the community and love comics and anime.

How long have you been a photographer?

Darrell: I have been using film since the High School ages (I am 28 now) – I have been photographing professionally for about 7 years – I own numerous contracts with agencies and catalogs.

What made you want to focus on shooting sci-fi and fantasy projects?

Darrell: I have been a nerd my whole life.  Comics and being a gamer used to NOT be the cool thing to do when I was in school.. and now suddenly it is.. shows you my luck..

Any plans for future sf/f projects?

Darrell: I have a couple up my sleeve and on paper for planning. This weekend I will be shooting a Psylocke in a Matrix replica Dojo.. excited about that. I also have some plans for another big x-men shoot :)

If you were on a deserted island what would video game, comic/book, movie, TV show would you bring?

Darrell:  I wouldn’t bring any of that.. I’d bring a camera and lots of memory cards :).. because a deserted island has to have some epic places to photograph!

Where can we find you in the web?

Darrell: I am mostly active on my fanpage – – You can also follow me on twitter @BGZ_Studios

Picture of the Week- 8-Bitscapes

Flyover Squad

Geek-Art, my go-to for all things amazing, featured work from photographer Kevin Rozario Johnson and illustrator Jamie Sneddon. Johnson and Sneddon combined their forces and produced these truly spectacular series of 8-bitscapes.

More about 8-bitscapes from the artists:

“8-bitscapes is a concept created by artist & illustratorJamie Sneddon & photographer Kevin Rozario-Johnson.

For their first 8-bitscapes exhibition, they have brought together their two disciplines to create this stunning series of works.

With a ‘giant nod’ towards the world of 8-bit gaming, the artists have produced a series of 8, strictly limited edition prints. These thought provoking images re-imagine well loved, iconic retro digital characters in real life scenarios. Framing them forever as they munch, invade, race, battle and bleep their way around planet EARTTTTTHHHHHH!!
