Photographer Available - Southern California - AX2011 Update

AX2011 Update: I will only be doing a couple free shoots per day at AX 2011 to give everyone I shoot with as much attention as possible and still enjoy the con (as last year I was shooting all day and forgot to eat). Once the 2 slots per day are filled, I'll only be taking paid requests. The rate for these will be $50/hour for groups of 4 or less.

I've done a few cosplay shoots and am always looking to do some more when time permits. I like using series-appropriate or fun/creative locations. I'm usually available nights and weekends.

I don't charge but will gladly accept any offers for ramen, curry, or other deliciousness.

You can see my work here:

I've also done a majority of the photos in the following gallery:

Feel free to post/PM me if you'd like to schedule something. And if you've worked with me before, I'd love it if you chimed in!

Fiverings = teh awesome. =3

Fiverings found me through the AX Forums, after having taken my pictures there as Yoko. We later set up a private shoot (after a long time of me being lazy about re-building my gun haha). It was my first shoot ever, so I was REALLY nervous about the whole thing, but he made it a REALLY fun and enjoyable experience. =3

I really do love how he likes to choose settings which pertain to the character or its series, because that gives the pictures a lot more power imo~ If you look in his or my profile, you can see the shoot we did of my Yoko cosplay, which I was really happy with. ^-^ We just did another shoot this past weekend, and I had a blast. It was more like hanging out honestly than doing a strict photoshoot or anything.

Definitely recommend him! And especially if you've never had a photoshoot before, don't be scared to do it! He's really friendly (although very shy at first :P) and fun to do pics with, and his pictures are awesome~!

I hope I didn't talk in circles.. kind of on NyQuil atm. XD And very tired, haha. <3

I'm mostly in LA and OC, but I don't mind driving to SD/IE/Ventura county if I think a shoot is worth it.

This man is amazing.

I had found one of his pictures he had taken of me at AX as Yoko, it was really pretty and I was very pleased with it. Then we set up a photoshoot a couple weeks later (It was my first photo shoot, didn't know what to do really ><). He's a clam, laid back guy. Very nice to work with and very creative. Even though he says he's new to the world of photography, I don't believe him. He's far better than some seasoned "professionals" I have seen.

I have done 2 and a half shoots with him (half cause one got messed up.. ) and I have never had such good results from a shoot.

I recommend him 100%.

My profile has the Yoko Beach Bikini shoot I did with him and also a Princess Velvet shoot.

Wonderful photos, check them out.

I've tagged along with Fiverings as a photographer and I can definitely vouch for him. He is very professional and easy going. Not to mention his results are pretty damn good.

I'm just trying to get back into the modeling game. Glamourcon is a con I'm shooting to run to right now with my agency. I am just looking for photographers for TFP work.
I don't need the photos to be fixed up, I just need the shots. I'm also building a website that might be running in a year or so.
I also have another model I'm managing who is looking for TFP work.
If ANYONE is interested please Please let me know by PM-ing me.
I am in the Hollywood Area (yeah I'm in the right town) If you needed to know Location.
