A week or so ago, I posted that a part of me was considering just shutting down the business. With no conventions for over a year now, which equates to no income for over a year, things have begun to look very thin on the financial side. I attempted a socially distanced shoot in January, but there were very few interested parties. As in, none. So again, things continued to look thin.
But I hate giving up. I was taught to never, ever quit. Shoulder down and drive through! I'm not certain that's the best philosophy in all things...but in some things, maybe. So I intend a Summer Kick-Off to reignite the business, reignite myself, and hopefully reignite some cosplayers along the way on the traditional Summer Kick-Off Weekend, Memorial Day Weekend. Details are being hashed out in the background. And there will be some special pricing and limited availability, but it should be lit.
I am looking to descend upon the great city of Lafayette/West Lafayette, IN for a dual purpose day of awesome. First, I'll be booking sessions for cosplayers to get out all they have been working on during the pandemic and get some professional shots to show off! But wait...there's more! In the midst of all that fun, I am also looking at teaching a two hour class around "Cosplay Photography - Getting the Shot." It will be a studio session, working with natural light, flash, and some of the biggest and best names Indiana has to offer in terms of cosplay models with whom attendees will be able to work. THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE EXTREMELY LIMITED in order to keep social distancing and safety in mind!
Maybe you want to sharpen your photography skills, maybe you're just starting out and want some experience before getting out there to shoot, maybe you want some tips and tricks on how to pose your subjects, or maybe, you just want to see what this "Cosplay Photography" thing is all about. All levels of photographers and aspiring photographers are welcome!
If the interest is there, this is going to happen. But the interest has to be there in order for me to make this financial commitment! So please, read, share, like, comment on the original post, LET ME KNOW YOU WANT THIS.
