As one of her models, I can definitely vouch for her. She's an excellent photographer to work with, and takes excellent photos.

The Zombie Gathering sounds absolutely Amazing! I'll have to theme one of my outfits for that while I take pictures! I'll put that one up right away! :)

Kuroi: As always it is more than a pleasure to work with you love.

Naruto's a good way to start I suppose. Those sound huge! O_O I'd probably go to the first one :)
Thank you so much sweetie. I just know that when I take my friends pictures, it is so much fun, and I love to do it. It'll be great to participate in any of these and get some great shots. Should I go let the forum know? (I did for the Zombie one so I'm just doubel checking for this.)

Wow, with all these gatherings Maybe I should open it up more to like three a day....

^___^ If you'd like to sure, the gathering tends to get quite a few photographers showing up. I don't think any of them ask the forum about it though, they just show. Also, if you want to, there's a section around here for the photographers to talk about photography and all the photoshoots and such. One that I know that tends to post around this section is Fremen, great photographer. Another whose known on the site is Eurobeat King, he pretty much goes to all the cons and is excellent.
If ya wanna, I got a facebook, care to add? ^^

Oh really? ^^; I don't know, I felt like i'd be intruding if I did that/ heh heh, i'm actually kind of a spaz and really freak out on these kinds of things. To have met someone nice off the bat was a first and a pleasant surprise.
Oh god! I couldn't post with the big time photographers >////< My measly amatureness would be humiliating. The only reason i posted this (other than to be polite) Is because my girlfriend had to kinda talk me through it XD

I'd like that very much :) Thank you.

People at the cons are general nice and friendly, easy to get to know too. Just be yourself and enjoy the atmosphere if anything. ^_^

One thing I would recommend is not to focus on the gatherings themselves. As you photograph the gathering, keep an eye out for people in good costumes or people who are really into it. Then once the gathering is officially over and most of the photographers have moved on, talk with these people individually, photograph people in smaller groups, with different scenery (less crowded), and so on.

I don't know if it's actually true (never counted) but often times the gatherings feel like there are more photographers taking pictures than cosplayers.

Would you be interested in a K-On gathering? I'm hosting it, but haven't finalized whether it'll be on Friday (5-ish) or Saturday (mid-afternoon)

You might want to check the Fighting Generation Gathering too (Friday 11:30). There will be a lot of cosplayers from different fighting games, and from how the thread is going, it seems like there's a good mix :)

Our gathering had to be moved due to the stupid South Hall being taken by registration. So we are now in the West Hall Lobby. The time is still @ 4pm on Day 2

Sorry about the sudden move, but it wouldve happened anyway. ^^;;

Hey I'm wondering if you could possibly do a photoshoot for me after the Vocaloid Gathering. I'll be there at the gathering as Deadmaster (ref: http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs39/f/2008/333/1/e/dead_master_by_ryoheihuke.jpg). Since the character is rather dark/evil, I was hoping I could have it set later during the day. Possibly in the evening or at night? Your thoughts?

xloveagain: Got you in the scheduale! I look foward to taking pics!!! Dead Master's pretty cool. You can find me either as Piplup!Kaito or Fear Garden!Rin. I'm pretty tall so I stand out XD

Bunny Dragoon: Is there another time or day possibly? I have the organization shoot then as well.

StarlitHellsing: I can deffinately see about going to that! It'd be very wicked! I got you in my list!

mewCATmew: Any time before 3 is available on Day 1~ :)
