With Montreal Comic Con coming in a few weeks, I am now scheduling photoshoot times for that weekend. My slots this weekend will be more limited than they would be at Otakuthon, so contact me ASAP if you're interested in a specific time/day.

Rates are unchanged from the recent Otakuthon, and are listed below.

If you're interested in booking a shoot with me, please PM me with the following information:

1) Day and time(s) you're interested in,
2) Who you're cosplaying as,
3) Contact info (cellphone/email),
3) Preferred meeting location,  
4) Shoot location suggestions/preferences (if any), and
5) Desired mood/atmosphere of the photos (if any).

4pm - Open

Note: Based on demand, I may open up more slots, if required.

Returning customers: I offer discounted rates to my returning customers. PM me for details.

Individual - $60 per session, with each session lasting 30-45 minutes. You will receive 7-9 retouched shots.
Two people - $110 per session, with each session lasting up to 1 hour. 5-7 retouched shots per person, and 2-3 retouched group shots
More than two people - $40 per additional cosplayer, 4 retouched shots per person, and 2-3 retouched group shots

What to bring to each shoot
1. Poses! - I typically do a little research on each character/series I shoot ahead of time, but no one knows that character better than you! The more poses/ideas you bring to the shoot, the more I can work with, and the greater the shots will be. Practice your poses in front of a mirror (or with a friend), rather than just looking at reference photos/videos.

2. Props! - Pretty obvious if your character has a weapon.  However, for characters without weapons, a generic accessory that suits your character can also add to the mood and help tell a story in each photo. Examples of this include: umbrellas/parasols, books, teacup/saucer, mirror,  baskets, hats, hairbrushes, stuffed animals, scarves/mittens, and so on.

3. Attitude! - During the shoot, it helps to be in-character. It goes a long way in making each shot believable, and maintaining a good flow throughout the shoot.

4. Friends/Buddies! - Whether it be for moral support, pose coaching, or just someone to keep you company during the shoot, feel free to bring a friend/buddy.

Any questions, please feel free to PM me.
