I will be doing photoshoots again this year and setting up a studio in the hotel with a high key back drop and something more pin-up style, as well as shooting in the park around the hotel.

http://www.photopersuasion.net/f229296197
The above is an example from last year.
And my website. www.photopersuasion.net

http://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/70A0B...A75-photoshoot
I'm going to give this a try for a schedule. Or at least a starting place for a schedule. I'll be fine tuning and contacting people who sign up once the event draws closer.

Prints, Payment Etc:
I will be putting all the pictures on my website, available to download. Length of the shoot is at my discretion and will be directly related to the cosplay.

A guaranteed way to get a full shoot with the studio look would be to arrive with one page write up of how your cosplay was created. In exchange you will get the full shoot, multiple looks, prints, and credit in the book I am hoping to put together.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to let me know if would like to do a shoot and have some creative ideas.

More then happy to do groups as well, though I prefer smaller groups where a story can be told in the pictures.

Thanks

I really like your work! But I do have a couple of questions before I sign up.

1. Is the sign up sheet only for the studio setting? Or is sign up for all shoots, and in addition if you want a studio setting you have to bring the 'essay'?

2. You mentioned 'Prints, Payment, Etc:' but I didn't see anything about payment listed, so can we get a payment list?

3. Do you limit cosplayers to a certain number of shoots they can have per day/weekend?

Hello,
sorry for the delayed response. For some reason I don't get a notification when someone posts something to the thread. I am very easy going with the photoshoots and encourage people to swing by the studio location for a quick portrait. I'm going to have an open door policy unless someone requests a closed set.

I'm using the sign up sheet for both studio and outdoor shoots. If someone wants to do an outdoor shoot then I just need to know where so I can plan for it. Once people sign up, I will look at their requests and see what works best.

At this time I don't have a payment list, but everything would be e-commerce through my website. I will provide one or two pictures at no charge for everyone that models. I am thinking I will charge .25 to .50 cents for the high res version of the digital print. I know that everyone is on a budget.
If somone has a high quality costume then I am going to spend more time on their shoot. different looks, different lighting styles. (If someone comes in just wearing a T-shirt then I'm probably just going to take one picture.)

For those that bring in a page outlining the creation of their costume, I will do either studio or outdoors, or both, and provide all the pictures at no charge, including edits. They will also receive mention in my book project.

No limit on the number of shoots. Not every shoot is going to take 30 minutes, so feel free to reserve a time, or stop by when you are free.

I also encourage groups. It is a lot of fun when people can feed off the groups energy, and I can go do individual and small group shots in the studio.

Hope this answers your questions. Feel free to message me with any additional questions.

Once I know my cosplay plans a little better (and if I like how my newest costume turns out) I might try to grab one of your time slots. Your work is fantastic and I would love to get some good pictures of my cosplay. And I wouldn't mind bringing a write-up for you since I support anyone attempting to make cosplay books to showcase the awesome hobby.

A friend and I are cosplaying Leonardo and Ezio from Assassin's Creed. She wants to do a photoshoot. Me, myself, am not very good at posing, but I agreed to it. Any chance you could send me some information at:

Hello. I have a few questions on the photoshoots. I've never done one before and neither has my partner so if you would message me so I can ask, it would be awesome! We're cosplaying Leonardo da Vinci and Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed II.
