Looking for photographer for Otakon 2010 :)

Hi!! Like the title says, I'm looking for a photographer for Otakon.

It will be for a small group shoot, and after the wonderful experiences we had at Fanime with Shibuya as our photographer, I know for sure the type of photographer I'm looking for will be willing to devote ample time to us...up to an hour possbly...,will have played the game and have knowledge of the characters, and be willing to try new things to get unique shots.

The photoshoot will be based on Final Fantasy XIII.
So far, confirmed, there will be a Lightning, Hope, and Jihl, and we may also possibly have a Snow and Fang(but probably not).
I'm looking to hopefully have this done Saturday, but at a time that does not conflict with Hall Costume Contest(and no mornings either...we are sooo not morning people and probably won't even start getting dressed til a little before noon lol).

If you are willing and interested, please post here and/or PM me. Thanks so much!!!

I am very likely to be going to Otakon and I would love to do a shoot with your group, especially since it is FFXIII!

I love trying new things out while learning new techniques. I am still a newbie at cosplay photography so this would be a great experience.

Here are some of the shots I have taken so far in terms of cosplay photographs. I hope to add more before Otakon. Feel free to check out the rest of my gallery as well to get a better idea of what I am capable of.

Feel free to contact me at annielam414@gmail.com if you are interested.

Okay, awesome.

Those photos with the cute geese look pretty amazing.

Just one question...you are obviously very good and your still shots look wonderful, but are you able to do good action shots?
Well, either way, I think we would all love a photoshoot with you. And if you can't do action, no biggie..I was kind of planning on scheduling photoshoots with more than one photographer either way, just to get some variety.

I'll be in touch.

I can do action and movement shots. I have recently attained a camera that would help with this without causing too much noise to occur. In term of action, do you mean something like jumping off a ledge and taking a shot of it where the subject is in mid-air? Or are you referring more to panning with a blur background and clear subject? I can do both.

I am going to try and get more variety in my shots this summer. Hopefully, I will be able to show you a few samples before Otakon.

Thank you so much! ♥

If I go to Otakon (getting airfare is tough currently) I'll be happy to meet-up with you for some pictures. It was fun chatting & taking your pictures this past weekend at Fanime! Plus you have my contact # so you know how to contact me.

I shall keep you posted!

You know we would love some photos by you. I hope you're able to come to Otakon.

And @FallenInnocence... Basically I meant action like jumping off of something, action fight scenes, etc. I really look forward to seeing what you can do for us.

I just bought my ticket going to Otakon, and so I will be going, from Thursday til Sunday!

Contact me during the con and we'll do our best to meet up! It'll be busy (busier even than Fanime, perhaps) but I'll make-time to see you and get pics!
