Photo Update: Newt Scamander Cosplay Studio Shoot

Sorry for the long wait. I’ve been busy with work, photo shoots, and a lot more exciting things planned for the future. 

With the recent release of Fantastic Beast: Crimes of Grindelwald, Nick reached out to me to do a cosplay studio shoot of his updated Newt Scamander cosplay. This is actually my second shoot with Nick in his Newt cosplay, which was at C2E2 this past year. It’s interesting how much his cosplay has improved since C2E2; with a new coat, new beasts, and even makeup to give more character.  As great as the shoot was, a studio shoot can only give you so much diversity in photos. In the future, it would be nice to shoot a Newt cosplay around the historic parts of downtown Chicago.

Also to add, this was also my first photo shoot using my new Pixel Tubes from Astera. These items are 3 foot LED tubes that This light was demoed at my workplace, and thought of getting a few for my studio. They were not as powerful as I hoped to change the color on the backdrop. However, they were nice to have for additional colors and more lighting on the subject.

What Do You Want To See?

Hey Everyone,

Sorry it’s been a while since I last posted on my blog. Been busy the past couple months with work, conventions, football games, photoshoots, and just life. Hopefully when things calm down, I’ll be more attentive to this new blog.

So while I’ve been busy with my freelance work, I’ve been trying to think on what I should post/write about. There’s a been few ideas that have been running through my head. I can write about myself, my photo studio, advice/recommendations, and maybe give my personal thoughts on certain subjects/topics. These topics can range from photo subjects like headshot, cosplay, and boudoir to questions like watermarks, photo ownership, release forms, etc. These posts will most likely be short essays and not frequently posted  

Along with those deep thinking and/or opinion posts, I can post updates on photo projects that I’ve been working on. Not only will I post a few photos, but I can give a quick description on the photoshoot and provide a Facebook link to view more photos. These posts will definitely be more frequent than the long written posts and easier to write about  I just need to remember to post about it once I’ve finished editing the photos  

Now I think it’s important to reach out to my audience to see what you guys like to see. Do you want to see more written topics on photography or get updates on my photo work? If there’s anything you’d want me to post or write about, please leave a comment below or message me your ideas. Thanks very much and have a great day!

Hello Everyone. Welcome to my blog.

On this blog, you’ll not only get detailed updates and reports on my shoots but also advice for novice photographers & thoughts on certain discussions. If there’s any topic you wish for me to discuss, please leave a comment below  

Now it’s been a while since I managed a blog. Since I’m no longer a college student with free time, I’m not sure how often I’ll post to my blog. It could be daily, weekly, or by photo gig. No matter what, I’ll do my best to entertain and inform my readers. 

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy future posts.
