Specialty: Imaginative worlds featuring tiny animals
Price Range: ($$) Mid-Range

We've written about animal realism as used in children's themes before, but this Canada-based photographer is by far one of my favorites. Check out the fantastical worlds Jeff Friesen creates using animal miniatures as his subjects.

With a portfolio of work that includes romantically shot seascapes and foliage, award-winning photographer Jeff Friesen's standout work really includes the small worlds he creates using tiny, but realistic looking animal figurines. The set-ups for each shot is rather simple—a couple of zebra miniatures on a beach, shot from three feet above—but his use of light and play with scale help give his photographs a dramatic and whimsical appeal. Images are available as high quality prints in sizes ranging 10"x8" to 30"x25", and would make chicly imaginative additions to the walls of children's rooms of many ages.
