Personal Quote: "It's all in the reflexes baby..."
All Cosplay models that are working with me, meet up at the NORTH MAIN ENTRANCE of the Hilton Anatole for your photoshoot scheduled time. Live by this moto; Early is On Time, On Time is Late. We'll be moving and shooting quick as we only have realistically about 45 minutes together and I have a lot of gear to setup between shoots. We'll find a spot we like, setup, shoot and move to another if we have too. Weather permitting, your shots will be outdoors unless you request indoor only. Just let me know when you show up. Indoor WILL be crowded and I may be limited in my shoot setup. I want to keep your background as clutter free of people as possible and I may be unable to do that in this hotel. I have not shot here before and don't know the layout but I have heard the nightmares of how overcrowded it gets. If you are not up front when I arrive I will wait for 15 minutes after your appointment time. If you do not show I walk. If you are going to be late, send a runner to tell me and I will stick around. The attached picture is what I will basically look like, expect I will probably have light stands and umbrellas thrown over my shoulder too.
Things you can do to maximize your time with me:
o - Come with some pose ideas. We'll do your poses first then I'll take over.
o - Come with reference photos if you want to recreate a scene.
o - Bring a friend with you to help hold your stuff or better yet, HELP ME. I may need a reflector monkey or a light stand grip while we shoot.
o - GET SLEEP. Do not come to your shoot with 2 hours of sleep in you because you partied all night or stayed up until 6am sewing. I can only photoshop so much!
Let's MAKE some pictures! See you all at the con!

It is time to rotate out the Cosplayer Spotlight and this time the lamp is setting on the lovely and talented who I have worked with for a few years now. Besides being breathtakingly beautiful, she is *THE* Sailor Moon of America. She is hands down, the best Sailor Moon cosplayer I've worked with in my ten years of doing cosplay photography. Click on her little avatar above and head on over to her page to check out her other work and go check her VBLOG on YouTube, especially because I am featured as a guest on the latest one (shameless plugging for the win!). Also, run over to Otakuhigh and check out her question/answer interview from me to learn even more about this wonderful cosplayer! Without further adieu, some samples of her work! ENJOY!
This list is subject to change as I get closer to the con dates and determine my financial situation. Here is the list as it currently stands:
