I know there are some cosplayers in Davis, CA! :D

Here are some photoshoot locations that I like!

- Social Science & Humanities building (the Death Star) [UC Davis]
- The Arboretum [UC Davis]
- I think it's part of the Arboretum... but there's a flower garden/gazebo area that's kinda far from campus near the veterinary horse area...
- bike path in South Davis
- sunflower fields in North Davis
- train tracks in South Davis

If anyone needs a photographer in Davis, contact me! ^^

Does anyone else know any other locations?

Parking structures! They're empty on weekends. By the way, sending you a PM. ;]

GOT IT! :D Sorry for the late reply!

I also like those stairs in downtown Davis... it's where the Bicycle Museum (?) is...
It used to be a youth center... (near crepeville & central park)

Hello~ I just wanted to say HI! Maybe we even know each other! I'm Cathy Wu and I'm a freshman-soon-to-be-sophomore :D

Nice to meet you, Cathy! I sent you a message btw! ^^

Does anyone else know any good Davis locations?

I thought of another one- the tunnels underneath the campus. I'm not exactly sure where they are but it sounds like an awesome place for a shoot. Also, there are the random stairwells of any building on campus...

How about the "bridge" between Olson and the library? By the way, nice to meet you too, Cathy! It seems like there are a lot of UCD freshmen who cosplay right now! =]

o yeah! that's a good spot too! :)
the only problem would be people in the background...
i HATE it when people are randomly in the background of good photos T__T oh and cars... stuff like that...

I heard (a long time ago) that astronomy students go on the rooftop of the geology (now "Physics") building at night to look at the stars. I never been up there, but I imagine that it must make a good photo location too. http://daviswiki.org/Physics_Building

For rooftops, I go to the deathstar because you can climb up to a few of them.

OMG UCD cosplayers! Bummer I'm graduating soon! DX

For more industrial settings, the area behind the SciLec is really good, it would make for a good urban setting with the buildings and the small plants.

Also, our beautiful Shields library. SOOO many stairwells, hallways, and the pretty tree in the courtyard.

Totally missed this thread! I'm an UCD alum, but I still visit Davis all the time, since my brother and a lot of my friends still go there.

Another good spot for photos on campus is the "downstairs" area on the east side of Wellman.
