Looking For Photographer - 07/04/10 - Anime Expo & Little Tokyo - Los Angeles, Ca

hey~

I was wondering if there was a photographer skilled in both amazing photos and directing pictures (knowledge of poses that increase the appeal of the cosplayer) for our photoshoot that will take place in July 4, 2010 (Sunday) (As for the time it is undecided but it will be between 10 AM & 5 PM). I would also like if the photographer has pre-hand knowledge about the series: Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan (<----information link provided). And in April an anime is going to come out based on this video game (so there is more "information" right there)

As mentioned in the thread title, it states that it concerns Anime Expo and Little Tokyo, in Los Angeles, CA. The reason being is that July 4, 2010 is the last day of Anime Expo, and since Little Tokyo is near by, I thought it would be a great opportunity to have a photo shoot in an environment that suited our theme. Not to mention that there is a building that has a beautiful garden that is very ideal for photo shoots.

I understand that July 4th is Independence Day and the last day of Anime Expo, but I am hoping that you can help us out and complete this photo shoot with us~

Oh and after the shoot if the photographer is interested we are going to eat at a restaurant called Kashi Shabu (third floor at weller court) and its on us~ all you can eat shabu shabu, and all you can eat dessert

The following links are picture references of each character and their outfits: (those with * = mean that at the current moment we do not have an available cosplayer cosplaying as that specified character)
Hajime Saito Cosplayer: yuukayuu
Okita Souji Cosplayer: EatnRunBandit
Hijikata Toshizou Cosplayer: Kooni (doesn't have any account what so ever)
Yukimura Chizuru Cosplayer: Twinkleprincess
Heisuke Todou Cosplayer: samiii
*Nagakura Shinpachi (keep the hair brown though)
*Chikage Kazama
*Sanosuke Harada

Please either leave a comment if you are interested or PM either me (yuukayuu) or Twinkleprincess

Hey there! Not a photographer, but just popping by to say Hooray for Hakuouki cosplay! I can't wait to see you guys during AX! ^^ Good luck finding photographers~

I've been to two gardens at Little Tokyo, and one's actually in a hotel (I forgot the name of the hotel, but it's the one next to the weller's court). ^^

I'm not sure if I'll have room in my cosplay schedule to bring hakuouki, but a couple of my friends started an otome game gathering at AX. (I really can't find the thread right now D It'd be cool if you guys could come.

I'm trying to avoid making any plans for shoots during conventions, but, possibly of use:

Shooting in the Kyoto Grand Hotel's Gardens has resulted in mixed success - when i tried during AX last year, we were kicked out. But during Nisei Week, the staff didn't bother us. I'd guess a combination of the outfits during AX being crazier (Sengoku Basara) and there being more colorful types around during Nisei Week already.

There are other gardens by the JACCC, which I haven't been kicked out of, but they seem to be closed most of the time. So I'd suggest checking in advance to see if they're open and try to schedule based on that, since I think you'll have the best luck there.

one of the gardens is a hotel, and the other is for a retirement home if you are talking about the one on 3rd street
