In few hours 2020 will end.
For sure 2020 had been hard for all of us, " Annus horribilis " in latin words.  :-\
Onestly I never thought I'd live a year like this.

On 2020 my very last thoughts were about collecting prehistoric figures.
I stopped collecting for months: simply it didn't seem right to me while people around were dying.

So, even if 2020 was "poor" from a collecting point of view, I'll try to describe it through the few figures I found and images I took.

___________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________


Personally I was coming from a great 2019, full of good memories:



On December 2019 I was at New York, visiting the NY Natural History Museum too:



On January 2020 I received one of the best statue in my collection, from my friend at Dinosaur Darkroom Market:




On February 2020 I was shooting over the Alps when there were first news about Covid-19 in a small town not so far from Milano  :-\



At that time I wasn't aware that Sars-Cov2 was so dangerous; stupidly I thought that China was overreacting about that..  :-[

On the same month I was lucky to find some really good pieces (mainly on Urzeitshop):




Even new Safari were easily available in Europe:



On March 2020 the virus started to spread all over my Country.


I had a special permit to shoot in Venezia; I remember that Piazza San Marco in Venice was spectral, without all the people..  ???




On mid-March 2020 there was a total lock-down in Italy: everyone had to stay at home.
The lock-down was from March to June: it was really hard..  :'(


During lock-down period my work had a stop: no clients at all (for safety, good reasons)..  O:-)
I completely stopped collecting on those months.

So I decided to re-organize my all collection:




At the end of June the total lock-down stopped and people were able to go outside with lots of precautions (facial masks, social distancing, etc..).


On June/July my work started again.

I found some interesting models too  ^-^



On August, after 4 months of total lock-down at home, I felt the need for a free time/vacation into fresh air and I went to my beloved Sardegna (Sardinia):



On September bad news: Covid-19 started to spread again in Italy..  :-X



On October there was a "soft" lock-down and I was able to work (a lot..  :) ).

I mainly bought CollectA:




On November there were first news about a vaccine for Covid-19 and it was great  :D



Even some good surprises from China:







December was totally about PNSO



..and what about January 2021 ? We will see..  I really hope things will be better than 2020 (..because I don't think it could be worst than 2020  ::) )



Happy New Year to Everyone on DTF and STAY SAFE

Kind Regards

RobinGoodfellow

Thank you for posting this retrospective.  A good summary.  The image of the Piazza San Marco is stunning - but also desperately unnerving without its people.  I have often in the past wished to see popular places without all the crowds: but one should be careful what one wishes for.

Of your models this year, I especially admire the Sideshow Protoceratops and Velociraptor repaint by Martin; and also the Shane Foulkes Troodon pair, painted by Martin.

An interesting view of a horrible year ... I like it a lot (your view, not the year).

Thank you for sharing your year! This is a good way to look back at 2020; you're an amazing photographer.

Also, where did that Thylacosmilus come from? It's fantastic.

@Dusty Wren That's a Sean Cooper kit

@RobinGoodfellow Beautiful photos, here's to a much better 2021!

 :)  Do you make some of your own bases or borrow them from other figures?

Thanks, @Halichoeres! I'm familiar with Sean's work, but I hadn't seen that one before. Guess it's only available through Urzeitshop?

What a beautiful and personal Recap. Thank you and have a happy new year aswell! :)

(That one Beachphoto from Sardina. Great. I like the roughness of it. Reminds me of the Beaches we have here where i live. Minus the Hills and Mountains. We do not have anything high up here. :D)

I really appreciate the over view you've shared here (and of course the wonderful images of the figures in your collection, and the others as well). Despite being far away from you, it has been quite the relatable experience I've had here as well. I hope we all continue to stay safe (or ultimately survive) as we head into 2021.

Thanks to all for your kind words.  :))

Usually I describe my job as "photography" for simplicity.
But technically I'm not into "still" photography but "motion picture" photography.
Mainly for commercials, fashion, music video and documentary.


( a "food" shooting for a well known company..)


( a pre-shooting camera test)


(..that's me and a small crew on a second unit shooting for a mobile phone company  tv commercial)


Even if not "still" , it's photography after all.. ;D

:)  Do you make some of your own bases or borrow them from other figures?

Sorry but I'm terrible at sculpting.. All bases are from other figures


Thanks, @Halichoeres! I'm familiar with Sean's work, but I hadn't seen that one before. Guess it's only available through Urzeitshop?

Sean Cooper's megafauna figures are from an old line mostly out-of-production now.
Some kits have been recasted recently by a small web-shop in US.

what company did zebra striped pliosaur.

It's an unbranded figure from China on Aliexpress

I really appreciate the over view you've shared here (and of course the wonderful images of the figures in your collection, and the others as well). Despite being far away from you, it has been quite the relatable experience I've had here as well. I hope we all continue to stay safe (or ultimately survive) as we head into 2021.

I wish you all the best  :)

Such a exquisite and excellent way of telling a story. I honestly believe that you could become some kind of film/book writer.
Wish you a Happy New Year. I hope the COVID Virus is treated, and everything can become calmer and less tense this year.
Also did you photo shop that T. rex Walrus that’s your profile pic? If so, great work on it, you made it seem well blended

Thank you for your summary on what we suffered in this year 2021 and a nice collection of figures and shelves. Sincerely agree with you. It has been a horrible year for all of us, as my case is worse than for another.

Hopefully this new year 2021 will be less tragic for everyone than the one that has ended. I have blind faith that it will be much better or at least one could say much less bad than the one that preceded it, namely 2020.

Those aparatus... are really something to drool over.

I wish I had a set of those but all I got at shooting is a 4-year-old smartphone (given by my dad).

Well, may 2021 be a flourishing year for us all and I can finally afford my first camera! ;)
