Photographer needs Cosplay models
« on: February 27, 2010, 05:11:15 pm »
Hello All,

I'm a semi-pro photographer looking to expand my portfolio. As such I need people willing to model for me. This is an unpaid position, but will still need a model release. If you are under 18, it will need parents permissions in addition to your own.

As this is unpaid, the model release will be modified to give the model full copyrights to all photos. I will in turn retain the right to use photos for my portfolio only and will not be using them for any other commercial purposes.

Examples of my work can be found on the following sites:
http://1nova.com/photoblog
http://www.onemodelplace.com/member.cfm?P_ID=203744
and http://www.modelmayhem.com/1450265 (which is in approval apparently).

I have worked with professional and amateur models before, but due to variety of reasons I am not able to use those photos for my portfolio. I can also do some photo retouching, having taught people how to do so in the previous jobs.

I am extremely familiar with Anime, having been watching it since the days that the only way to get it was directly from Japan, or via an Anime Club. I have attended Kumoricon in the past, and plan on doing so this year.

I'm willing to travel to a certain extent, I live in the Portland area, but can go to Seattle, Eugene, the Coast and parts east if need be. Outside of PDX, I'll probably need help with locations though.

Please email me if you're interested or ask questions here.

Thanks!

You going to Sakuracon? I have several photographers lined up for cosplay photoshoots, but one more never hurt :3

Otherwise I would definitely love to do a photoshoot on the UO campus here in Eugene, but not until this summer D:

Out of curiosity, why are you thinking you want to start doing cosplay?

I would do one, as I have never had a shoot taken, and I'm just finishing up a few of my cosplays :3
I agree with Richie, are you going to be at Sakura-con?

I will not be able to go to Sakuracon this year. Have other plans that weekend.

LtCommanderRichie - Summer works for me, if you're still interested at that time.

soundninja12 - I'm a geek. I like taking pictures of others being geeky. From a portfolio standpoint, having a wide variety of subjects and situations give clients a good idea of what your skills are and helps get the gig. Since I'm starting to freelance, this is becoming increasingly important.

chelseahavoc - what part of Southern Oregon? I might be able to justify a trip depending on location.

I can easily get to Portland (lives in Beaverton). And I would love to have a photoshoot some time ^^

I'll talk with one of my friends to see when she's free, to do one for Sven and Eve.

And then, I'll probably end up doing one with Fallon ^^ We should do Soubi and Rituska! Or the old ladies!!!

nekovamp13 - I'm technically in Beaverton too, so something will be easy to setup.

For those in Central Oregon, I can probably swing something to Bend. Even Medford might be a possibility. One of my other hobbies is Ghost Towns and both areas are filled with 'em.

If you're going to be at Kumoricon, and have time that Sunday, I'm sure my cosplay group would be more than willing to do a photoshoot! I'll have to talk to  them, but I'm sure they'll be cool with it. There'll be 7 or 8 of us there. :D

Monday or Tuesday from 8am - 11am, or 4:30pm to 6:30pm, Thursday Morning from 8 am to 1pm and Sunday 8am to 2pm.

I'm scheduled to do Konan-ChanX3 this Sunday, so the next earliest time would be next Monday.

I've been rather lax in following up with people due to having to actually work this week and last, but I'm ready for the next round.

All - I've still got Tuesday and Thursday mornings available along with Tuesday 4:30-6:30. Email or post here if you're interested in those slots.

My girlfriend and I would be interested! We have some Cosplays that have yet to get their photos. My weapon consists of an 8 ft cannon, however. So I'm not quite sure where the best place for a photoshoot would be. We have upcoming Cosplays that are going to make their debut at AX, if you're attending. If not, we would gladly like to have a shoot with you sometime in July!

Unfortunately my major travel budget is shot for this year. I'm still planning on Bend and Medford for those that live down there, and Seattle area will be a real possibility too. So July time frame works fine at this point.
