View Full Version : Photographers and Models for Photoshoots

I'm hoping I can organize for photographers and models to meet up at this convention.

I am interested in developing my hobby of taking pictures. I would like to request that any cosplayers interested in having cosplay pictures taken of them or their group, tell me. Tell me what you'll be cosplayiing, or include pictures of your cosplay if you can so i can start getting ideas.

I am also interested in photographers who can schedule a photoshoot with me. I have a group and we want to get some pictures taken of us. We will be cosplaying from Elfen Lied as well as Kyo Kara Maoh, possibly that akatski from Naruto as well.


[EDIT] I want to schedule an actual date and time for us all to meet up together so EVERYONE can have pictures and get pictures taken, etc. Think of it as a photo taking party. hahahah! >D

When:
---Friday at 3:00pm and again at 6:00pm
---Saturday at 10:00 am and again at 1:00pm
--- Sunday at 10:00am and again at 12:30
---(I'm open to compromise if anyone has suggestions)

Where:
--- In the center of the convention, where music is played and there are many tables with umbrellas around. I'll try to be as easily noticeable as possible.
--- Once we all meet up, we'll start moving around campus finding great spots for photoshoots so that EVERYONE can have a great set for getting some really good pictures.

Plan:
--- If we have one of these gatherings every day, then the cosplayers should be able to get a photoshoot of most of their costumes, and the photographers can get a really wide variety of characters. Also, if anyone misses one of the days, they'll still have another chance.
--- Traveling around in a group should make us feel less awkward should other students be wandering around campus, raising their brows... strength in numbers right?
--- I know and love the CSUN campus and cant wait to bring people to the settings that bet support their characters!
--- Please please please keep in touch with the people you take pictures of. I'll try to bring a note pad to make sure everyone exchanges information, but i really want to make sure everyone gets to see the pictures that are taken of them.

Hey, If you need a photographer, I have a pretty good 9.5 px camera. If you were looking for someone more professional, then I'm sure there will be quite a few there.

the only proffessionalism i look for is that the photographer is able to maintain themselves with dignity and not try to take advantage of any situations with their model. But then again, this is standard decency really.

If you're looking to take pictures, I'd be glad to have you help my friends and I.

I havent seen much of the show. if you can describe what would make for the best setting, i'll be able to find some place on campus that suits it. I'm familiar with the campus so it wont be hard for me to think of someplace for almost any occassion.

I'll be around, though I'm not sure which days. Saturday is most likely. I plan to cosplay, but I think my primary focus this event will be photography since the location & atmosphere are pretty conducive to it.

If anyone's curious, here are pics I took last year (http://epii.info/anime/2008_Mikomicon/).
Also, here's what series I'm into (on MAL, with rankings) (http://myanimelist.net/animelist/SpookyElectric&order=4&status=7&tag=), and thus most interested in photographing. Especially any Range Murata or Hyung Tae Kim character designs, as well as steampunk & neo-victorian type fashion/character designs. (So, TheSinisterLove, I'd be interested in your Elfen Lied group. But KKM's not so interesting unless Yuuri's willing to get dunked in a toilet.)

So, if anyone wants me to look out for them, let me know.

I think you doing this is a great idea! And if I had a camera I'd help out...

I'm impressed you know of the show KKM. I really do want to get a toilette series of Yuuri. Think we can find generic enough looking people around to have them pose as the bullies for a shoot like that? I'm game and i'm sure i can bully my Yuuri into it.

As for Elfen Lied, i love the costume and will have pictures taken of it whenever i have the chance.

I dont know what that is, but I have a feeling its going to be fun for picture taking. Hmm.... in front of the dealers hall, on saturday, at 1? And if you see me walking around before then, in either cosplay, feel free to shout out and we'll see if we can just do something right then and there.

I'm so glad people are picking this up. I was worried this would sink to the bottom and no one would look at it. If you dont get stocked up with tons of pictures, when I see you around I'll do a photoshoot.

Anyhoo! I'd love to participate in this! Probably as both a cosplayer and a photographer. ^^; My camera isn't that great(regular digicam) but I've done a couple of photoshoots for some friends and it seemed they liked the pictures I took for them. ^^;, (with their cams, lol. D: )

I'll likely only be going on Saturday, so...yeah. x.x Either as Shiraume from Air Gear or Time Jump Hinata from Naruto.

--- In the center of the convention, where music is played and there are many tables with umbrellas around. I'll try to be as easily noticeable as possible.

If not, then hopefully I'll see the big group of photographers around! Haha~

Especially since I know many cosplayers tend to forget to get pictures for themselves at cons. xD
I'll be going as this version of Hibari Kyouya (http://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq188/harinohime/hiba1.jpg) that Saturday, so hopefully I can get up early enough to find you guys for this. ( 10amDearGodDx )

Hopefully I can join as a photographer as well, since I definately need the experience.
I'll have to look up some of the series people are posting up that I don't recognize, it'd be cool to get a shot of a character's " signature pose " if they had one. 8D

I also think it might be kinda early to go at 10am but mainly because I am pretty far, I think it'll take me about an hour and a half to drive up there assuming no accidents on the freeway....so I'll have to leave the house early :)

Also, since the masquerade isn't until 7pm I'm not sure what I'll be doing the rest of the afternoon since I don't know anyone to hang out with really....but I suppose I could take a book and do some reading :)

Don't get me wrong though, I'm still going to try to make it because I love taking pictures and its worth it.

1 is a better time.

I can also take pictures for photoshoots. I have a nice DSLR. I'm not sure about the times, as I have a table in artists' alley, but I'll be available any other times. You can always come ask me for an individual time as well. I'll be in artists' alley most of the time, selling corsets.

Heya~ Cosplay Cyborg here!

I'm running a panel at 10 AM on Saturday featuring mini-skits from the series Hetalia: Axis Powers and we would really be grateful to anyone kind enough to bring their cameras to take pictures and video at our event. We are also desperately searching for someone who wouldn't mind filming the panel from start to finish so that we can watch the show again and again. Any and all photogs would be wonderful~ Oh, and fans too!

We'll show up for the Sunday shoot to take pictures of everybody else (and each other lol) in return, or at the very least I will. I'll probably be there for Friday's shoot as well, most likely as a character from YuGiOh. Not sure whether it'll be Mokuba or Syrus right now, though. And Saturday night for Masquerade I'll be Gijinka Raichu (I'd appreciate it if someone filmed my performance then too) and also probably for whatever night-time events are going on.

Thank you!

Does anyone know what time someone will be there so you can get your badge?
I was trying to figure it out from the website but I must be dumb cause I don't see it.
I can see from the map that registration is adjacent to artist alley

I want to schedule an actual date and time for us all to meet up together so EVERYONE can have pictures and get pictures taken, etc. Think of it as a photo taking party. hahahah! >D

When:
---Friday at 3:00pm
---Saturday at 10:00 am
--- Sunday at 10:00am
---(I'm open to compromise if anyone has suggestions)

Where:
--- In the center of the convention, where music is played and there are many tables with umbrellas around. I'll try to be as easily noticeable as possible.
--- Once we all meet up, we'll start moving around campus finding great spots for photoshoots so that EVERYONE can have a great set for getting some really good pictures.

Plan:
--- If we have one of these gatherings every day, then the cosplayers should be able to get a photoshoot of most of their costumes, and the photographers can get a really wide variety of characters. Also, if anyone misses one of the days, they'll still have another chance.
--- Traveling around in a group should make us feel less awkward should other students be wandering around campus, raising their brows... strength in numbers right?
--- I know and love the CSUN campus and cant wait to bring people to the settings that bet support their characters!
--- Please please please keep in touch with the people you take pictures of. I'll try to bring a note pad to make sure everyone exchanges information, but i really want to make sure everyone gets to see the pictures that are taken of them.

This is an AWESOME idea Wolfy. Rest assured, I'll be at every one of those gatherings, though the one on Saturday I may have to cut short cuz I have the Kingdom Hearts gathering...

In any case, this is a wonderful idea. ouo The times are pretty early for me, but I'll do my best to stop by at least some of the days. I'll be wearing Suzaku Kururugi (Code Geass) on Friday, Oscar François de Jarjayes (The Rose of Versailles) on Saturday, and Regene Regetta (Gundam 00) on Sunday.

@Sinister: Augh, omgosh. I just saw the time for Saturday and I'm like, "x.x;;;," 'cause by that time, I'll still be getting ready to head over to CSUN, haha. o.x I was thinking maybe at around 1PM or something like that, lol.

If not, then hopefully I'll see the big group of photographers around! Haha~

@Kio: Wanna do a ShinoHina photoshoot? ROFL. Or Eaa giah~? Lawl.

it seems like people are going to have a hard time meeting up that early. i'll try to be there at 10, but if no one is there, i should put up a sign to say "meet here at 12:30, or 1"

i typically show up before school, get my badge, go to class, go home, get into costume then come back and walk right in. I've never really looked at times, but it's alway seemed to open up pretty early. i'd show up around noon and if they arnt open yet ,just enjoy the scenery.

Hopefully offering two times will help people be able to make it to the photoshoots. Please PLEASE PLEASE dont just come to one photoshoot. Everyone knows, scheduled events fall flat if no one shows up.


[EDIT] I want to schedule an actual date and time for us all to meet up together so EVERYONE can have pictures and get pictures taken, etc. Think of it as a photo taking party. hahahah! >D

[[[[[[ ADDITIONAL EDIT! ]]]]]]]


Communication: I want everyone to be able to share the pictures we get of each other and i'm struggling deciding how to do this. We could all communicate on here, but i dont want to pass out my e-mail online. So here is my idea...

Photographers, please come with paper so you can write down the e-mail adress or AIM of the models who request to see their pictures when they are available. make a description of their cosplay underneath so you will remember who they are and you can send them their pictures.
!!!!If you have a gallery you post these pictures in, make sure your model will allow you to post these pictures. And if they allow you to, provide a link so they can access their pictures.

[B]Models[B/], please make sure you write down the contact information of the photographers who took your picture. Make a note to remind yourself what costume you were wearing. You may need to contact them, and you may need to remind them what you were wearing.
!!!! If you have requests, let them be known. make sure a photographer knows if you only want your friend to take pictures, or if you dont want your pictures to become accessable to the public. Also, let your photographer know if you will allow your better pictures to be pictures for their own use, such as for photography portfolios.


Is there anything else i should consider or mention?

That sounds great! I should be able to make it to each of the later times for sure. I'll do my best to get there earlier as well, though!

Haha, I don't mind at all! In fact, I would be very appreciative. I have next to no photos of most of the costumes I'm wearing this time. xD

We're going to meet in one spot then i'm going to start guiding around campus so we can all find the best places for our pictures. So if you dont meet in the meeting place when we're all there, you can try finding us... or likely you should just look for us the next time we turn up.

The CSUN campus has been used for so many movies. to name a few off the top of my head, Star Trek, Sky high, and Drag Me to Hell.
Theres no reason why we cant imagine these buildings in our anime world if the sci fi, disney and horror comunity can imagine them in theirs. lol.

the lunch break is all the time before between and after the photoshoots. but of course we can bring food along and eat if we get hungry. I'd just warn you to be careful of the squirrels on campus...

Actually yes. they have a food court, i can take everyone by both the places, they've got mexican, asian and all sorts of foods. There is a subway basically looking over the convention area. there is a little convenience shop as well, and a fruedian sip coffee place. Because of the convention there will also be vendors. Check out the hot dog men, they give pretty good prices considering a hot dog has everything you need in it to give you energy for several hours at a conventions. They're also really nice, and pretty funny since they dont understand the whole anime thing and are sort of in their own comical world... *hopes they come to this convention again* ....

There is a lot of food available around, i typically try to make sure i bring my own, but thats because i love my bento boxes.

Yeah, sadly they never happened. the plan sort of fell on its face in the end. i called around and people werent interested in doing a shoot friday. The morning of Saturday no one was there, that i heard of anyways, the later in the day one i missed because of a costume change gone late. And sunday I ended up just taking my camera and getting shots of myself and my friends cosplay.

I dont know if any of the other cosplayers got pictures, or if photographers got any shots...
