He’s taken hundreds of brilliant pictures showing life from the perspective of a one-inch tall Lego character.

And now Portsmouth commercial photographer Andrew Whyte has produced a series of eye-catching shots of the latest Lego characters - Batman and his sidekick Robin.

He created capital images of the caped crusader after teaming up with the producers of The LEGO® Batman Movie.

Andrew, 41, has been photographing Lego perspective shots for more than five years. His latest creations show the dynamic duo hailing Hackney cabs, dodging pigeons in Trafalgar Square and racing to the rescue across Tower Bridge.

He said: ‘Photographing LEGO® has been a passion for five years and has enabled me to see the world from a very different perspective.

‘Working with LEGO® Batman has been a fascinating creative challenge. His role as a protector and watcher over the city lends itself perfectly to this nature of photography, as the minifigure interacts with the city of London and all its quirks.

‘My shoot is a mixture of brooding intensity as Batman watches over London like he would Gotham, with humour as he struggles with the pitfalls of life in the Big Smoke, from pigeons to public transport.

‘I was honoured to be able to offer some advice to The LEGO® Batman Movie star Will Arnett, teaching him a few tricks of the trade using his smart phone to photograph the character he so brilliantly voices. I was also thrilled that he lent his Batman voice to some of the images and video I took, which really take them to a new level!’
