Posted to Flickr on 04 August 2011. Part of the Stormtroopers series.

Ah, the ever-observant, always determined, strong-minded stormtrooper.

Stormtroopers: the Empire’s finest.


I had wanted to do a Star Wars / Doctor Who crossover photo for some time. I finally got around to it with this one. I really like the iconic imagery of the stormtrooper and the T.A.R.D.I.S. together.


This stormtrooper has been spotted looking for droids in these places as well:

Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.


This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.

Selected imagery background information.


The stormtrooper is the elite soldier of the Imperial forces in the Star Wars universe. They typically wear white armor and helmets and are armed with blasters. Imperial stormtroopers were first depicted in the film Star Wars (1977). As shown in the Star Wars prequels Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005), the stormtroopers were preceeded by the clone troopers, an army of soldiers cloned from the bounty hunter Jango Fett and loyal to Emperor Palpatine. In many ways stormtroopers are an iconic symbol of the Galactic Empire.
