Private Photoshoots?

If anyone is interested in a private photoshoot at DragonCon please reply here so I can gauge the interest. I've never attended DragonCon but if I know at least a few people will want one, I'll put them up in the store as we get closer to it.

I'd be interested in hearing more about them, but I'm not sure if my costumes would be up to snuff for a cosplay.com photoshoot. o_0

Oooo! I'd definitely be interested. Although I'd have to tidy up some of my costumes, LOL~

I'll have to check out the pictures I have from last year... I know there's some good places around the hotels -- I just have to remember where they are. Hehe!

I live about 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta, and I've been to Dragon Con for the last 4 years or so. Sadly enough, I never stayed in the hotel because of this...lol...so I can't really guage if there's any good place around there. As far as I know, virtually all cosplayers and costumes just kinda roam the halls, since there's no set gathering place like at AX between the con centers.

Most of the time however, cosplayers are in the main lobbies of the hotels, just outside / in the exhibition hall or in the dealers room (the ex hall and dealers room are different, too). Of course there's the parade, and masq, etc...

However, if you can stand walking roughly 3-4 blocks outside from the hotel in costume, the Olympic Centennial Park is about a third of a mile away and has the best scenery downtown for photoshoots close to the hotel. Dancing fountians, water gardens and lots of other stuff. Pics are here. Although it may be INCREDIBLY HOT on the day you decide to take pictures, and costume + heat + walking 3 blocks = pain. But then again, Dragon con is alot closer to fall, so it shouldn't be too bad, and the park shouldn't be packed, so you won't have too hard of a time finding a clear spot where no one is going to get in the shots. Hope that helps.

There's a really cool fountain in front of the marriott - looks very scifi. The lobby (3rd floor) of the Marriott is also really nice, and usually not too crowded.

I'm interested and in fact the whole group of costumers I'm going to be with

"G. I Joe Costumers"

MIGHT be up for it as well. What goes on with these photoshoots and how much do they cost? I'd have to ask the group about it before confirming anything.

Admin, There are several areas that are good for shoots at Dragon Con. As mentioned the fountain at the Marriot and also the stairs and fountains at the Suntrust center. I will ask about for other suggested areas for shoots and pass them along for you. Us locals can be the best help in finding areas for them.

The connecting skywalk between the Hyatt and Marriott would also be a good place for scifi costumes.

The only problem is that DC can be very crowded, so I had a hard time getting good shots sometimes as people would get in the way. The Marriott is usually easier to shoot in, as less crowded (its got interesting visual architecture looking up too).
