As far as I know, you can't delete a post, but you can re-edit the second post's text, and apologize there, instead of making a 3rd post. Now it is four, with mine. Sorry. :-x

I will put in my two cents, to make it more worth it:

The photographer should have been more specific about what he "wasn't feeling", instead of causing the cosplayer to wonder, especially if he could have taken responsibility as the photographer, for not making it work.

There were instances where I didn't "feel" a photo and they ended up loving it. What I may consider a little derpy and unflattering they may think it is a great natural shot.

Different strokes for different folks.

They still get my photos, and if they didn't like it then they would not request my services again in future cons. I am proud of the fact that the percentage of returning cosplayers is high, so I must be doing something right

Speaking as a photographer myself, it seems theres 2 things going on here...so i'll ask you...is this a less experienced photographer? And if he is, he may not like what shots he captured due to the limits of his own skill. As a photographer, your in control if the photos are going to look great or not. EVen if his reasoning was that he didint like the poses you made, its up to him to direct you otherwise.

It's the photographer's job to make you look awesome, it's your job to show up and look awesome.

I'm guessing the photos sucked and the photographer is embarrassed. It happens sometimes with new photographers.

I don't think you should be upset, he shot you for free. If you want quality I recommend finding a good pro.
