View Full Version : Eurobeat King's Private Photoshoots : Anime LA 2007

Hey everyone,

Anime LA 2007 will be the first convention in So.CA to start 2007, and with it starts the new idea that I've been planning for a while but will finally launch it in 2007: Eurobeat King's Private Photoshoots :skidude2:

What Are These? These private photoshoots are similiar to the ones that I take at conventions, but the difference is for these is that members will be able to sign-up for a photoshoot at the time they choose, we meet up, and I do a photoshoot of them (solo, pair, or group) in the costume of their choice, inside and/or outside the hotel/convention center. In return for paying me a reasonable $$ fee for taking the pictures, you will receive stuff as well (see below.)

Why am I doing this? Beforehand, admin & ziggyB were the only moderators from cosplay.com doing these private photoshoots, but I myself haven't done so. I have done free private photoshoots before, where cosplay.com members would sign-up for a photoshoot time-slot, and we'd take pictures which I'd post in my convention galleries. People have asked me why don't I charge $$ for it, and before I stated that I enjoy taking pictures and would feel bad asking for $$. However.. this past year has been rough on me, with me being laid-off from my job at Sony, surviving the summer w/o a job and still going to big conventions, and just recently, with my laptop being stolen at AnimeUSA which prevented me from posting the pictures from the con. With the help of cosplay.com members who sign-up for these photoshoots and don't mind paying $$, it allows me to continue doing what I like doing and be able to have fun, see friends, and take lots of pictures.

How do these photoshoots work? The post below is a list of the available time-slots I will be having for photoshoots. If you are interested, please reply and tell me what day & time you are interested in, and how many in your group (solo, pair, or group.) Please DO NOT post what characters & the series you're cosplaying from. That will be discussed via PM when I contact you after you reserve a time-slot.

Then, I'll add you to the list, and then PM you with details regarding payment (before the con), and where/when to meet come the con for the photoshoot. And then come the con, we meet and do the photoshoot! :) If you have multiple costumes, you may reserve more than 1 time-slot.

How much do these photoshoots cost? Here's the pricing:

$15 for 1 person per costume.
$13 per person for 2-4 people.
$12 per person for 5-8 people.

I accept PayPal as payment which I request you please pay before the convention. Please send payment to my PayPal account: animeng@msn.com Please note that I cannot give refunds unless you cancel out on the convention entirely and I also cannot accept cash at the con. Thanks for understanding. If PayPal is a problem for you, please PM me to discuss another form of payment. I will NOT be accepting cash at the con.

What equipment will be used? For the private photoshoots, I will be using my new SONY DSC-N2 which takes pics at 10.1 Megapixels which you will be getting on CD-R. I will try to take pictures with and w/o flash, depending on the lighting and background. If my battery for that dies out, or I fill-up my memory card, I will use my backup camera, my Canon Powershot S2 IS which takes pics at 5.0 Megapixels This camera I primarily use when walking around taking convention pictures.

What do I get out of these private photoshoots? Snce you are paying for these photoshoots, you will get a CD-R of all of the pictures I took of your photoshoot before the convention ends and these pictures will be full-size (10.1 MP) and unmarked (w/o my Eurobeat King watermark logo) It is important that you find me before the convention ends to pick up your CD-R. After the convention is over, and after I finish posting the regular convention pictures, those who I took photoshoots of will get their own individual gallery showing the pictures from the photoshoot similar to this one (background varies per convention.)

http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?cat=56165&member=18

NOTE: You may post the pictures in your cosplay.com gallery and/or website before or after I post them in my gallery. It may take me a while since I'll be posting the convention pictures before making the photoshoot galleries.

How do we go about taking the pictures? When we meet up for the shoot, we will find a location either inside or outside the hotel/convention center and take the pictures. The # of pictures I take will vary depending on: 1. how many are in your group (if more than 1), 2. details of your costume, and 3. if you have props for your character. I usually would take anywhere from 20-30 pictures, but again, it depends on the above-mentioned factors.

Requests? The photoshoot is what you are paying for, so if there are any request pictures that you'd like, feel free to ask: costume-detail pictures, action-poses, silly poses, etc. And if there are pictures that I take that you don't like, please let me know so I may re-do them or not post them after the con.

Multiple Costumes & friends joining in? Each photoshoot & price is for each costume. While a lot of cosplayers have multiple costumes, if you'd like a photoshoot of another costume, you may choose an additional time-slot for that 2nd (or 3rd) costume. If you have friends with your group that are cosplaying different characters, they may join you even though they may be from different series. I'll just post their solo pictures in the group's photoshoot gallery.

In closing, I know this project will be tough for me, since I usually don't do too many private photoshoots because I'm busy running all over the place taking pictures of other cosplayers & gatherings, and I will miss a lot of solo costumes & gatherings by doing these photoshoots, but hopefully people will understand and still wear their costumes during the weekend so I may find them and still get their pictures. :)

Soooo, here are the days & time-slots I will be doing my Private Photoshoots at Anime LA 2007! It's first-come, first-serve, so do reply ASAP if you'd like to reserve a photoshoot! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about anything regarding the photoshoots. Thanks, and see you at the con! -Al

Just a quick question, if one does a photoshoot with you on Saturday, will the CD be available by the end of that day or the end of the con?

If there's a slow-down time on Saturday for me (like before the masquerade) then I can transfer the pictures onto the CD-R for you, or later in the evening when I'm done taking pictures for the day. If you aren't going to be there on Sunday, then I'll get the pictures to you on Saturday. :)

Please find out and reserve a time-slot when you can for you and/or your group. Since I'm not scheduling too many per day, they could get reserved pretty quickly. :thumbsup: So don't delay for too long, A. :)

Also, PM me when you reply the costume you'll be wearing (or when you do decide which costume you'll be wearing.) As I mentioned, please don't state the name of character you'll be cosplaying from when you reserve a photoshoot.. it ruins the surprise. ;)

Thanks! I've reserved the 10:00am Friday photoshoot time-slot for you. I should be up before then for the shoot, since I will probably get some rest on the drive down there the night before. I'll call you 30 minutes before the shoot to verify that we're on schedule.

I myself have forgotten if I sent you a PM with the details yet or not, but I think I was waiting to hear from you how many you'll have in your group (100% finalized.) But I'll send it again justobesure. ;) I'm still recovering from Ohayocon but ALA will be here before I know it, so I have to get the ALA ones ready also. :thumbsup:

Would 1:00pm on Saturday work for you? I originally wasn't scheduling any further photoshoots between 1-3pm due to the hectic rush of cosplayers that afternoon, but I can fit the three of you in at 1:00pm if this is okay, and there aren't any gatherings scheduled at that time. Let me know, and I'll reserve the spot for you 3. :)

Yeah, 1pm is fine since we just need to be done by the time of the Naruto gathering (but that's at 3 so we'll have more than enough time)
Thanks for squeezing us in!
By the way, when do you need the money?

Your status is all-set (look at the 2nd post of this thread) and if you're only going to be there on Saturday, here's what we'll do: After your shoot, we'll all go about our normal business and then after my last photoshoot at 6pm, I'll work on putting the pictures onto CD-R for you. Since most people will be getting ready for the masquerade, I will use that opportunity to return to my hotel room and prep the pictures for you. Then when I'm done or before you leave, we'll contact each other so that I get that CD-R into your hands. :)

Sounds good? See you this weekend!

i have a similar question, actually. I'm leaving pretty early Sunday morning, so could we arrange something like that as well? Unless my friend Frost-Aya is staying all day Sunday too, though i'm not sure, then you can just give the CD-R to her...

Sure, that's not a problem either. If I don't watch the masquerade (but simply wait until it's over to take pictures of the contestants/winners) I'll have more free-time after 6:00pm and have my laptop with me and sit in the hotel lobby and transfer the pictures. You have my cellphone # so you can call me to find me before you leave. :)

All right. Sounds good since I have no clue how long we're sticking around. Depends on how entertained we are LOL, but we'll make arrangements for what works for you on Saturday.
