Things in the Universe / San Francisco Cosplay Photobook
February 01, 2017, 10:12:14 PM
Hello Fanime Forum readers!

I am Kairu Photography and I was a panel presenter on cosplay photography last year at Fanime (my first time hosting a panel event ever!)

I just wanted to share a project that I've been working on the past 2+ years called "Cosplay by the Bay: a San Francisco Photobook" -- I shot with over 30+ cosplayers in and around iconic locations of San Francisco... and am now ready to share the project with all of you !

If you're interested, find sample photos, details, and more here:

Thanks and hope to see you all at Fanime in a few months ! (eek!)  :-X
Hello everyone,

I am happy to say that Fanime has accepted and scheduled my panel !!

The panel is called "Intro to Cosplay Photography" and will cover the following topics:

  • Type of photography equipment best used in different scenarios
  • Etiquette for taking photographs of cosplayers (in and out of conventions)
  • Legal issues surrounding cosplay photography (including photo rights, sales, printing, etc.)
  • Photo editing, a brief overview of the types of tools people should familiarize themselves with to take their photos to the next level
  • Q&A, at the end, if time is available.

Is there anything you would like to see covered, mentioned, or discussed for this panel?

The panel will be in Room 3 at 6pm on Friday (Day 1) May 27th!! Hope to see you all there !

I've been watching more and more current anime shows after catching up with my backlogs. I've loved checking out new and different shows at Fanime but would love it if Fanime were to show any current episodes from current shows. I don't know if this has been done before and I just haven't noticed it, but is it possible?

Hello Fanime Con Staffers and attendees,

I am a Bay Area photographer and have been doing cosplay photography for the past 3 or 4 years. I haven't presented a panel before and submitted a panel for Fanime 2015. My submission was for Convention Cosplay Photography 101 and would go through the basics of con cosplay photography (gear, rights, respect, posing, etc.).

As of now I have not been accepted nor denied, so Fanime Panel's Twitter team said I am probably on the wait list (tbh, not sure what that means besides maybe being  accepted if someone drops out? I find that unlikely though)

So now I would, perhaps too late, like to ask what typically goes into the decisions to accept, deny, or wait list one panel over others? I recognize sponsors will usually get their panels, as well as guests of honor. Outside of that, do things such as repeated panels (ones from previous years), number of presenters, etc. play a factor? I planned on presenting myself but wasn't sure if that would be a mark against me. Any tips or info would be appreciated.

I am asking so that if I don't get accepted this year, I can set my panel up for success in the future.

Thanks for any feedback ! Look forward to hopefully seeing many of you at the con in May!
