OK, so I just got off two Cons in as many weeks IkkiCon over New years and Anime Los Angeles the very next weekend. . . back-to-back Cons sounds like great enjoyable fun. . . but MAN is it tiring. . . photo workload increases, and it just piles up, and if there wasnt a month till Ushi COn Id be afraid of it endlessly snowballing :p

ANYWAYS. . . Ikki Con was amazing fun, I really enjoyed myself, even amongst the epic Failboat of organization. . . 80% of my pre-scheduled shoots had to be rescheduled or even canceled due to scheduling conflicts with the Con schedule, and I even made it a point to not schedule any shoots until after the thing had been released the week before. . . in any case I got to meet new people and become that much closer to others that Id met before

and as for ALA. . . well. . . it started slow as Ill admit I was a bit homesick, missing the familiar faces of home, but through the motivation of a special somebody I was able to get up and shoot away, and I walk away having met some AMAZING people, especially my new Photographer friends :D . . . speaking of photographers, that was part of the discouraging bit ,is there there are SOOOOOOO many out there as opposed to back here in Texas where I can pretty much count high-profile shooters in one hand (not quite that bad, but the basis of comparison is about accurate). . . it was to the point where I wrapped up a Sunday night shoot with 6, thats right SIX other photographers, sharing just ONE Cosplayer. . . you may think thats a recipe for disaster, but youd be surprised just how well most Cosplay photographers work with eachother. . . and I do mean most, but thats another story for another day

in any case after I catch up with this backlog Ill TRY my best to update this thing. . . especially after 2 K-on shoots, that really made me smile :D

Love your photos!!! I was looking through the forums on, saw your sig, and thought I'd ask some questions if that's okay! So far, I've only been to a convention once (A-Kon this past year) and now I'm trying to start on my very first cosplay for A-Kon 23! Also, because I guess I'm just a masochist like that lol, I want to try my hand at cosplay photography. Any tips or words of wisdom? Anything from the standpoint of "when taking pics do/don't do this..." or "when getting pics taken of you do/don't do this..."

Keep doing your awesome work and congrats on doing cosplay photography for over a year!
