Model car photography with full-size backgrounds

Michael Paul Smith's photos of a fictional mid-20th century town, Egin Park, are accomplished using his detailed scale models shot against real backgrounds. The effect is spectacular.

Born in Pennsylvania in 1950, Michael has been building scale models for over 25 years. His model making skills have been accumulated through his varied job and life experiences; he has been a text book illustrator, wallpaper hanger and house painter, designer of museum displays, architectural model maker, and art director for retail stores. His love of the 20th Century has been a constant inspiration for all of his work.
