Hello! I'm new and a photographer
Good morning folks. I came upon the site via an image I saw on DeviantArt. I must admit, I am no Cosplayer myself, however I am a photographer and usually do weddings, portraits etc. This is not a plug for my business in any way. I usually struggle to find people to photograph for my personal obsession with photography, and not just people but INTERESTING people. I find the costumes you folks wear pretty incredible and would love the chance to do some outdoors photography with some of you should you be keen. I am not promising amazing images from the outset as I have never tried this before, but hopefully we can work together to produce something good. I am in the North West area and willing to travel should you know of a good location etc.

Here are a couple of examples of my photos for you to have a look at....

If you're in the North-West then MCM expo in Telford is coming up on Feb 19th, where there should be hundreds of cosplayers happy to have their photo taken

Thankyou. I have seen that and may go down out of curiosity for sure. However I was thinking more of creating images in a good outdoor setting rather than an Expo. I have been browsing some members profiles on here and there are some fantastic looks and costumes.

Wow love you're work, I'm a model myself, love to shoot with you, I live near gatwick. I will also be going to May Mcm Expo, huge event, over a thousand people go, tis held at the excel centre

Gareth your work looks amazing! I always wanted one of those photos with a frame... I am in the Stockport area if you're interested :0)

THANK YOU Crazedteensie: I never knew EXPO was in Telford as well... much better than London as it's about £25 getting there and back opposed to almost £100 to London incl tube and all that.. so probably will go Telford now instead, thanks for that.

Thanks folks. To be honest I thought I would have gotten a slightly better response.

Alienqueen, had a quick mooch at some of your photos and you have some nice images. Shame your so far away.

Draco malfoy, Thankyou, you are much closer and maybe we could sort something out sometime.


Shame there are not more people interested.

Really nice photos!

Yeah I see what you mean about outdoors setting; Expo and cons are pretty limited in terms of background.

I think people are interested, they're just a bit shy. Where are you located? I'm sure lots of cosplayers would be happy to meet up for photos. Also, if you see a costume you want to take photos of, PM the cosplayer! There's no harm in asking.

CosI is a relatively slow moving forum, it might even be worth posting on a few convention forums just to let people know you're out there and interested.
I would definitely be interested but it would depend how far north you are as I don't drive annoyingly.

*peeps up from behind mountain of wigs* o///o;; Yeah. This. Your photography is gorgeous; I'm definitely interested, just a little bit... intimidated? Idk xD I don't think I have anything pretty enough yet orz;;

Me and some friends are working on a Kuroshitsuji group though; if you're still up for something like this around summer/autumn time, we'll be in contact? :'D Or maybe after I get Minamimoto done... Hnnggg idk. I live in Chester, but I have a railcard so travelling isn't really a big deal... But yeah, your photography is so lovely *___* Professional shots!!

Yeah this! I love working with different photographers so i'm interested, but i'm based in London at the minute so it's a little tricky...if you went to some events I would be interested in booking a shoot with you though. ^^

I'm on the wirral so it's a similar situation for me XD There's also one in manchester over the summer so that may be easier to get to as well!

Seconding this, if you don't want to go for on-site shoots perhaps looking for local places around the con that would be good?
I know a couple of times myself and others would have loved to go to offsite places (churches, forests etc).

Thats better! No need to be shy, I am lovely. Thanks for some of the suggestions. I might try PM'ing folk, thought that might be a bit forward though! Ha. Will see how it goes. Some of the costumes though are really good. I am well impressed with the effort that goes into them. I will try and be more active on the forum and see what it's all about.

Love your photography, very striking.

I do have some photo-shoots planned with another photographer. If they fall through I'll consider you as an option. I'm based in Manchester.
