Personal Photo shoot locations

Every cosplayer out there loves to have there picture taken. . but not with the 1500 other attendees in the background. so Im starting this thread to list the places in and around Anime North land (TCC, DT, Raddison, Park plaza and other hotels) to take pictures of all the awesome costumes that come every year. Please list good places at night as well as people cosplay into the evenings as well. Also the series shoot spots are a given already so no worries on listing those when there not in use. also if you have a picture of the location please post a link to that as well.

ITCC1 will be used for people getting personal pictures taken. It's a room that was just built in the TCC, will be carpeted and black backgrounds will be set up. We also will have a water table there and I think some risers will be brought in as well.

Another good spot outside is around the left hand side of the Sheraton towards the back. There's a picnic table there, lots of privacy and it's nice looking.

Edit: I made a picture for it.... yay.

Also for small groups of like 5 the Sheraton lobby it a really nice location for personal shots.

You can see some photo's taken there here.

Also the DT has some open space at the lower level of the back stair well that work for single or 2 people shoots.

Behind the TCC between the building AN is held and the other building is a good spot too. Not many people go by that area.

Question. can there be a white and/ or Green backdrop as some costumes are black and with a black background it can be very hard to see the costume in the pictures afterwards

Hmm, I think they only have black to work with(TCC provides that stuff) but I will ask. Actually it's a walled in area so I assume the wall is a beige tone like they use everywhere else. I'll ask on that too, because if thats the case the wall can also be used.

I was actually going to start a thread XP if people could include what KIND of shoots work in the locations they are suggesting that would be great too!
something like

Area Behind TCC- good for industrial series shoots

Hotel Lobby- good for elegant shoots

etc!

I know I look for locations heavily based on how appropriate they are for a series, especially if we're going to be paying money to a pro for the pics!

I'm assuming it's a hotel; it's nowhere near the main few hotels, but it looks like the same general area. I'm thinking it might be the Westin. Tried looking on Google Street Maps but the whole lower floor of the Westin was being blocked by a TTC bus in the current images, lol.

that is the North TCC building its a very nice location. you have to go to the very back of the South building (the one AN is held in) and cross a parking lot. i kind of wish we could get inside at least for the lobby as its really nice interior. (i have never been in but have looked though the windows)

If only... it looks so beautiful. We're not even allowed in the nice parts of the South Building as it is; just the massive warehouse-looking parts. No wonder there are so few good places to take photos. /whine of the day

Holy crap. Those areas are so nice. Dang. It would have been an awesome place to take pictures.
