All aboard please, photographs by Grant Maiden, Wellington, New Zealand.

Late last year I did a studio shoot for the upcoming film The Hobbit photographing all the dwarves, Gandalf and Frodo.

Warner Brothers have started to slowly release these images now and there’s one of dwarf Thorin Oakenshield played by Richard Armitage at the Entertainment Weekly website – as well as my website. He’s looking a bit lonely there on his own – but as the images are released I’ll add them to my website and complete the company of dwarves!

    Hello! Good to find out who the photographer is for all of these fine dwarf portraits we have suddenly received via the new Hobbit App. I missed your credit on the EW site for that shot, but in the printed version it lists James Fisher for the page with Bilbo, Thorin and Gandalf on blue backgrounds. Mistake on their part I guess! Would love to send people to your site so they can appreciate all your LOTR/Hobbit cast photos!

      Hi there- glad you like the dwarf portraits! Its great to see them being used in the new app.
      As you say there was some confusion with the correct crediting initially, hopefully just a one time thing! James did a shoot initially of the dwarves and then I did a shoot later- so I can see how the mistake occurred.

        We Hobbit fans are truly spoiled to have so much visual material months before the film is out. Thanks for giving us many quality photos to mull over! 🙂
