View Full Version : Photographer Available - Los Angeles Area

01-16-2010, 12:06 AM
I'm looking to take more photos at locations other than conventions. Since I'm in LA, that means Los Angeles Basin / San Fernando Valley / Orange County / etc. (I might consider San Diego for something particularly epic.)

I'm interested in shooting cosplay and also Steampunk + Neo-Victorian. (I would consider other interesting fashions as well.) For my taste in anime, see ratings on my anime list (http://myanimelist.net/animelist/SpookyElectric&status=7&order=4)

My schedule tends to be more flexible on weekdays.

Various examples of past location shoots:

You can see more examples of my photos:
- best are on deviantArt (http://spooky-epiic.deviantart.com/)
- some shoots are here on cosplay.com (http://www.cosplay.com/shoots/m14694/)
- and the rest are on my own site (http://epii.info/anime/).

Hi i'm no longer a con runner nor do I cosplay, but I am infatuated with certain styles and am in the process of toning up and hiring seamstresses to build designed outfits. I would love to work with you just to have a shoot going. TFP?

I'd be up for some creative fashion. I'll send you my E-Mail in reply to your PM. As a heads up, I'll be pretty sparse over the next several days due to Katsucon.

No Problem! :) I'm busy with meetings for upcoming events XD
Enjoy Katsucon. :)

Yea, are you going to go to AX?
because im looking for a photographer to do a shoot with, and I looked at your pictures they were really fantastic.

do you think we can set up a shoot?
me and my friend are going as Uriko and Alice from Bloody Roar 2

I'll be at AX.
As mentioned in the first post, I'm looking mainly to do shoots not at conventions. That allows me to take advantage of cooler locations, and frees up time at cons for other stuff (like cosplaying).

So, I'd prefer shooting some other time. But, looking up the game, it seems a generic urban setting is the ideal location. So, downtown LA would probably be my choice anyway. Given that, I'm ok with shooting during AX.

Any particular day(s) you plan to wear it, or is that flexible? How late at night is OK?

It's been awhile since I posted in here. Here are some pics from shoots coordinated here with my2wings and lilyun5368 last year, and a recent one coordinated with a friend:

At the moment I'm pretty busy up till June, but I should have some availability this summer.

Of things I'd particularly like to try, I have some ideas for:
Evangelion: Rei, Shinji + Kaworu, and Mistao (PM for details)
K-On: full group in school uniforms @ karaoke
Shikabane Hime: night time action shots
Sailor Moon: fighting evil by moon light (ideally a group with both a villain and one of the sailor scouts)

A location I'd like to try out that I don't have any particular ideas for what series to shoot is the Salk Institute (http://www.google.com/search?q=Salk+Institute&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1139&bih=642)

Posted something here about your interest in a K-On group. Hope you get one soon :)
I'd request for a shoot, but I only know a Mio ^^

It would also be cool if you could the Genderbent K-On group I saw at AX last year!

By the way, that location looks cool!

Hi <3
We live in LA too, and we would like to do a Durarara! Shoot and in dire need of a photographer.
Would you be willing to shoot with us?
please pm me :] we would be really glad to have you there with us.

@qutesis93 - it says you don't have PMs enabled - try E-Mailing instead maybe? I'm tschundler on gmail.

I am a big Durarara!! fan, so that definitely sounds interesting.

Oh you make some beautiful scenic shots! If you are attending AX, may I get a few photos of my Sheryl Nome (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y69/Susami_Masaki/macross-frontier.jpg) cosplay from Macross Frontier? I'll be wearing it on either Day 3 or 4. Let me know what you think! :]

In general, prefer to not schedule photoshoots during cons since they are often pretty busy already even without photoshooting.

That applies particularly if you're from SoCal - we can meet up for a more relaxed shoot at a cool location anytime. Those traveling I'm more open to shooting at a con since that may be the only time we could shoot together.

(I'll be sending / have sent you PMs individually)
