How many years have you been into photography and what got you into cosplay photography?
I’ve been into it for four months.

What regions do you usually cover, and do you charge for photoshoots? Also, how does one get in contact to shoot with you?
I cover New York City. Not just no for charging, hell no. Right now, you can contact me on Facebook. Soon, Cosplay.com.

What type of photoshoots do you prefer and why?
Good question, next?

What is some of your favorite equipment you work with and why?
“The best camera is the one you have on you.” – Ansel Adams. Although, my DSLR is probably my favorite.

What are you excited to be working with in the future and why?
Cosplayers! Although in a technical sense, I’m waiting to pick up a nice flash with a diffuser. Light is supremely important.

What are some of the traits you like to see in other photographers and who do you think does them well?
Passion for the fandom. It becomes easy to geek out over lenses or sewing machines but the best times are when geek synthesis happens between photographer and cosplayer.

What is your view of the “cosplay scene”?
Exciting! New people are getting into it and photography equipment is getting better and cheaper. In fact the iPad I’m typing this on has a better camera than my first point and shoot.

What are some of the things you want to see change in the scene?
Closure of /cgl/.

What is some advice you could give people starting to get into photography?
Learn your camera. Learn it’s limits.

What are some of your favorite conventions you’ve attended and why?
Otakon! Really it’s the people that make the con. So… wherever there are awesome people around.
