A friend of mine is just setting up a new photo studio in Warrington, just outside the Greater Manchester area and he is looking for some cosplayers who would be willing to let him take some photos to build up a new portfolio. Most of his work to date has been family/baby portraits etc but he is keen to branch out into the wonderful world of cosplay and would love a good variety of people/characters to demonstrate his skills! The shots taken would likely be used on his website gallery and business card.
He is looking at getting people down to the studio for a photo shoot session during a weekend in November (date TBA). The session would be around an hour long and would be free of charge to you. You would get your shots of the day sent to you on a CD following the session, in return for permission for the pictures to be used for publicity purposes. You would be able to use the pictures for any personal purpose and would get a cover letter granting permission to have them reproduced as hard copy (some of the print labs can be funny about printing off professional pictures). There is a changing room at the studio so you are more than welcome to bring more than one costume with you. He is happy to try out a number of different poses/ideas and doesn’t mind doing some “silly” ones as well (Darth Vader reading a newspaper whilst sitting on the sofa was one silly idea battered about!!)
You can check out the website at www.munchkin-photos.com
If you are interested, please make contact via the www.munchkin-photos.com
website (Contacts section, fill in the form) and state your costume(s) and weekend availability during November. The studio will contact you directly to arrange your session.
Please note that depending on the demand, it may not be possible to offer everyone a free session, especially if there is a lot of repetition with the same costumes. So if you are interested, make contact now!
