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 plan to be there on Saturday taking pictures. Hoping to photograph as many of you as I can while I'm there.

I'm no professional, but here's some samples:

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've already made arrangements to shoot a couple cosplayers there, but that should only take an hour or so. Feel free to PM me here if you want to set up something separately, otherwise I'll just be roaming around taking pictures!
