Hello friends and welcome back to another Team Meet. This time we will go to South America to the country of Chile. This team is ready for the competition and it is time you guys know more about them.
My name is Daniel, I have been collecting toys since I have a memory. My first toy line was the original MOTU, and since then I never stop. As an anthropologist, I have a particular interest in material culture, so I guess that has translated to my hobbies somehow (¿or is it the other way around?). I’m kind of a globetrotter and my collection has traveled with me through 3 countries, that is how I found myself being the first captain of the first team Chile has ever had in the toypic community, despite not being exactly from Chile, but I love my adoptive country and gonna make my team take the gold on their first OlymPics whatever it takes.
My name is Max Rios, I am 32 years old and I am from Santiago de Chile.
I am a sound engineer and I work in television, and maybe that aroused my interest in doing toy photography … I started 3 years ago in the damn and expensive world of collecting and 2 years in toyphotography, which I entered without objectives or anything and I was overwhelmed by the reception of people making me grow a lot in my first year, which motivated me to improve a lot.
My favorite figure is radamanthys since it was my first figure and I think is one of the most striking of the myth cloth line.
Hello, my name is Daniel Parraguez.
I am 28 years old, I live in the city of Valparaíso, Chile. I’ve been in the collecting world since 2013 and taking photos as a hobby since 2015. Already in 2017, I started in the world of Toyphotography. I will compete for the Chilean team in these Olympics. My Instagram ID is @ Dan.figures
Greetings to all.
Hi! My name is Giselle, a 30 years old Air Traffic Controller and also a Full-time collectionist of anything Saint Seiya Related. (And a little bit of Sailor Moon too)
My collection started 3 years ago with Shiryu V1 and hasn’t stopped since then. I’m so passionate about this that I also created a YouTube Channel to help others put together their Myth Cloths.
Through Instagram I mixed my 2 hobbies into one, taking pictures and collecting. Although I’m a self-taught AND amateur photographer I’m really proud to represent CHILE in the 2021 Olympics and get to know amazing artists!
Hi, I’m @Zsincler, my real name is Tomas Singlair, I live in Santiago, Chile. I am 27 years old, my last 5 years I decided to enter this expensive Hobbie haha… what do I tell you about me? My first SHF Goku Awakening figure inspired me to enter this world of photographs and editions, unfortunately I sold my first complete collection and forgot an ig account, I returned 3 years ago collecting Dragon Ball z and I wanted to expand my world to other franchises like Mafex, amazing yamaguchi, etc. And with this new zsincler account I have met wonderful people and very good friends. So I invite you to be inspired by our work, take your cell phone or photographic camera, take your figure and start playing.
Hears! My name is Miguel Polo, I am from Antofagasta Chile. I’m a fan of He-man. I’m very creative! and I try to do my best to share it with my toy photography. I also do stop-motion, which is my passion! My dream is to one day make a movie for the cinema! I am part of the Chile Team and we appreciate all your support.
Hi! My name is Camilo!
I’m a fan of action figures and a kid at heart still hehe. I started with the photography of toys about 3 or 4 years ago and I love doing it for fun, because at the end of the day that is what moves me in this hobby: FUN.
I am always imagining scenarios to recreate with my figures and I love seeing what other people in this community do with their creativity on a day-to-day basis.
My account on IG @the_photo_trooper has been a great way to connect all the things I love, be it movies, series, or video games.
