IL Photog available.

Hi folks!

Name's Arseny, I am a Chicago area photographer who is looking to expand my horizons a wee bit.

My main focus has been concert work so far, and this so far has stretched for about 5 years. I have done some portrait and wedding work, and now am really interested in shooting a more creative minded people in a slightly different hobby. That said, I come here.

Truth be told, i've been a huge fan of Cosplay for years, but I am not talented enough to fabricate costumes, so I end up enjoying watching people make / wear and make the best of them.

here are a few shots i've managed to snatch..
- a good friend of mine, she's a body painter, as you may have guessed.








I am currently shooting around the Mundelein area, primarily, but we are moving to Schaumburg area in the end of next month, and my availability is going to spike.

That said, let's get together, and snap a few shots!

I can be found on FB

my site is under construction, but you can find it at www.Foquesphoto.com

cheers

I currently live in the Schaumburg area. I do a lot of Disney cosplays (not all of which are featured on my profile because I had a few costume updates). My most complete costumes are Alice in Wonderland (my favorite with a new unphotographed costume), Wendy Darling, Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Tinker Bell, and Ariel's town dress. If you are interested. I enjoy photos just for fun, if you are looking to expand a portfolio. I am typically available on weekends.

Aww, I'm disappointed that you won't be at Acen. Your photos are gorgeous!

Thank you Pocky, let's schedule something outside of ACEN?

If changing into a costume is an issue, You can always change in my truck - I have limo tinted rear section; we had to use my 4Runner for that on several other shoots (hence the limo tint, really).

Sounds good! I am actually really interested in body painting so if you need a model for that I'd be happy to do that. Also I don't really have any cosplays left because I sold them all, but I am working on a Harry Potter lolita outfit for Acen. If you would like to shoot other fun stuff, the Chicago Zombie Walk is a blast. I live about an hour-45 min away from the city by Metra.

I shot with for Zombie March last year. I am not a huge fan of going to the city.. partially due to my current location, and partially to the fact that all of my cars were / are cannot be legally driven in there. But I hope to start visiting city once I move to Schaumburg. As to shooting, I am interested in shooting anything and everything; so it is not a trouble at all. When you are ready, just hit me up.

Bodypainting is a whole another venture, i've had a few of shoots, and I am sure we could arrange something with Chantal (the talents behind Fanciful Faces, pictured above). She's super sweet and incredibly talented painter.

Once you move closer to the city it's not so bad. I never drive into the city unless my bf does. I can't stand parking costs as well as the added stress of actually driving. It's so crazy! Oh yeah, not to mention being about an hour or so away, gas costs a lot plus the darn tolls! >.< So I understand not wanting to go to the city a lot. :P

holy smokes, I didn't see your message. My sincere apologies.

I concur. Though, I do prefer to drive and pay the tolls/parking rather than take a bus/metra. Not my cup o tea.

It's okay

I do like driving and having the option to get up and go in my own vehicle versus taking public trans...but... tolls. >.< GR! They raised the price this year.

I've never been there before (I'm usually going to Sushi Station in Elgin lol) but I've always wanted to. I've heard that their burgers are pretty tasty. I checked their bands and I have never heard of them before! lol I may swing by to check it out. It's only like 30 min away.

If you do, make it a point to find me - i'll be by the front stage, most likely.. just look for a guy with a camera, and neon green ear plugs

The Elgin Highland court (TK) is one of the best Kilts on the face of IL. And the owner is a grand man, as well.
