Cosplaying and creating your own cosplays is a long and arduous process, one that really needs the creator to invest a lot of time and money to create these amazing costumes. This is why these incredible pieces should be photographed in a way that is true to the source and allows everyone to truly see the amount of work the cosplay has invested. This is the reason why when I photograph cosplay, I take my time to understand the source material, and to find which style of shooting, and what location would be the most optimal for the cosplayer's work.
Starting in December, I'll be opening myself up for cosplay bookings. This means that I'll be offering these same services for everyone else, so you all get the chance to have these amazing photos taken of your work. For some examples of previous shoots I've done, check out the gallery below.
Use the calendar below to select a date and time you had in mind to shoot. I would recommend to shoot 1-2 hours before sunset as lighting conditions are the best at that period. If such a thing is not possible, I'll make sure to accomodate with your wishes and still get the absolute best out of it of course.
After having selected a date and time everything else should be quite straightforward. After the booking has been made I'll be in contact with you on that same day to discuss the details of our shoot.
Where would the photoshoot take place?
Since each cosplay requires a different kind of environment to shoot, I can not give any promises where we could shoot right now. After booking a shoot, I'll make sure to come up with a list of options for the shoot itself. Some of the locations might require an additional payment for the righs to shoot there. Since the cost of the location would be on the client, it is their choice whether we would shoot at a paid or free/public location.
What will the process of shooting be like?
The shoot take place on location or in studio with part of the photos being edited and selected on the go. This allows me to make sure that you like the look and style of the shots that we're taking during the shoot itself and adapt on the fly. After the shoot is finished, we'll go through a quick selection process, after which the photos will be uploaded to your personal password-protected gallery. After the session you can take your time to select the photos that you like from this gallery and decide which one you want color-corrected, and retouched.
How long does it take to deliver the photo?
I strive to deliver the photos within a month after selection. If this is not possible due to unforeseen circumstances, I'll make sure to update you as soon as possible.
Can I have the photos edited by myself or my own editor?
I do not allow the photos that me, or my editing team, has edited to be further edited by anyone else. This does not mean however that I don't grant any leeway on this. If you really would like to have the photos edited by someone else, the original files can be bought out for a reasonably fee.
What rights do I have on these photos?
You have full and exclusive rights to use the photos delivered from these shoots for personal use. This includes posting them on your social media or website, printing them for your business cards, etc. However, in case you want to use these shots for anything commercial like an album/book cover, or to sell. However, if you wish to use the photos to sell as prints, or for places like patreon, it's possible to buy out that options for a small additional fee.
