Yeah... late announcement is late. I did say in my last journal about the photo shoot for the MCM London Comic Con. But a lot happened back then. Bad things. But that's all sorted now and I can finally tell you about the photo shoot bookings~!
Read the journal before you start booking!
As I've mention in the previous journals. Things will be different.
1) There will less time slots. A lot less! The time slots are:
1pm - Booked
4pm - Booked
1pm - Booked
4pm - Booked
**2 Slots left**
There's no time limit since the time gap is quite large. So until either one of us is satisfied with the photos. If you've missed out. I will add you to a waiting list (if you want to be added) and I will call/text you if anyone cancels or drops out for whatever reasons. If you do need to cancel, please let me know asap so I can contact the others to replace you. You don't have to tell me the reason why you want to cancel if you don't want to. It's first come, first served. BUT, read number 2 before you book!
2) In most of my shoots. I've always done it in one location. I wanna change that and do at least TWO different locations. So you must be willing to walk around to different locations with me! How far to walk is depending on what costume you are wearing.
The locations I've done for example are by the docks, the stair way on the bridge that crosses over the docks, the tree and bushes outside the West entrance, underground car park, East side hallways etc. Just look at the photos on my Facebook page.
3) Please bring your own references of the character(s)/series you are cosplaying as. Be it on paper, phone or tablet etc as I will not have enough time to research due to work and my preparation for the Chester half marathon run.
4) If you have any certain request that you want me to take a picture of, by all mean let me know. I am happy to do any kind of shoot, long as it does not contain, violence, nudity, racism or discrimination etc. Got props for the shoot? I'm ok with that. Long as it within the MCM rules.
Q & A
Why the low amount of time slots for the shoot?
In the past I've always planned photo shoots that cover nearly the whole day. But doing that, I hardly see any of my friends and the Comic Con is pretty much the only time when we're all in one area. Plus I wanna do more photo journalism/ candid shots. I've not done any of that kind of photography for a long time!
Why the long trek for location shoots?
Every time I do a photo shoots and I always check the photos and decide if I am happy with the results or not on my camera. And most of the time where I look at the photos on my laptop, I change my mind and I don't like it as much as I did. And I always react where I thought " ahhh I should of done this or that" "oh I should of done this shot at x place" etc. Plus I want to give better environment of the character(s) in the shot and I am trying to be more creative with my shots.
And one advice to everyone. Since it's summer and it will be HOT inside the Expo hall. Bring plenty of drinks i.e. water, face towel (I kid you not, that will help you!) and bring a friend to help you out etc. Dehydration is not funny. I've seen it lots of times at the event and even I suffered from it once or twice! There's plenty of food outlet stores inside and one convenient store. There is a NISA (I think that's the name?) and a Tesco Metro outside the ExCel Centre which is about 5 or so minutes walk. I recommend to buy stuff for the weekend rather than for the day because they WILL get very busy and really crowded!
And that's pretty much it. You can decide and book now! Message me if you have any questions! Once booking is confirmed, please copy the form below, fill in the form and send it to me via note.
