Celebrating Women and Non-Binary Cosplay Photographers of the UK
Celebration of Women and Non-Binary Cosplay Photographer in the UK!
We're super lucky to have some amazing photography talent in the UK, especially on the cosplay scene, and today we're shining a light on some women and non binary photograhers we love.
Check out some of their awesome work, and some exerts from our chats with them.
What got you into cosplay photography?I used to Cosplay from as far back as 2006 and I have always been with in the realms of costume making ever since. Back then the Cosplay scene wasn’t as big and popular as it is now. There weren’t many people who took photos at events and meet ups. Photography was my means of getting to speak to people I was too shy to approach. Somehow the camera and photography gave me confidence. Now I aim to make people feel confident in their costumes and themselves. I love giving to the community something that wasn’t available back in my Cosplay days.
What new skills are you working on or have learned recently? I am in the process of learning 3D Modelling both to make my own props but also to use as renders in images. I have fallen in love with the combination of practical effects and locations partnered with digital effects to create a story in an image.
