This was the first chance I got to attend Anime Japan. I wasn't sure what to expect from this Japanese con as I've only attended Comiket up till this point. Hear my thoughts below.Read More
A great way of ending the year is by going to an anime convention, this is one of many ways of course. Comiket 91 took place on the last 3 days of 2016, a year that shall never be forgotten.Read More
Comiket 90 took place this past weekend. I was there to capture some of the cosplayers hanging around—and to sport a cosplay of my own.Read More
Are you interested in Cosplay Photography? Do you have questions? I'm writing a book and I'd like to hear what beginner photographers are struggling with or want more information on.Read More
I've recently come across some chatter about an anime convention banning paid shoots. To me this is rather disheartening as I've been a big supporter of this con and what it does for over a decade. I want to talk about this issue and address some points.Read More
I've seen some incredible cosplay photos over the years, I've also seen some incredible photo manipulations involving cosplays, there are some truly wonderful and inspiring pieces out there. I'm able to appreciate the art direction both art styles can take, and I've even dabbled in some photo manipulations myself. I do find that they are something of a double-edged sword though.Read More

Comiket is my first non-North American convention. As I haven’t been and likely won’t be attending any NA cons for a while, conventions in Japan will have to substitute. Comiket proved to be entertaining!Read More

It was a dream come true! I did and visited so many of the things and places I wanted and more!Read More
At the beginning of April this year I visited Osaka and Kyoto respectively for the first time. Respectively meaning in the order that I put them in, so first Osaka, then Kyoto. Though it was a short trip, lasting only about 3 days/4 nights, I managed to see a lot of great places with my GF Alex and our friend Chantal. This was a trip we had been planning for over a year!Read More
It has unfortunately taken me sometime to go through, edit and post this article and the many photos in it. I went to Japan (Miyazaki prefecture mainly) back in November for about 10 days to visit my girlfriend Alex.Read More
Not to be outdone by last year’s winter storm mayhem, Mother Nature threw us some very strong winds for this year’s Katsucon. Despite nearly being turned into a frozen human-kite without a string, I did go outside a few times to get food and do some photoshoots.Read More
I hope everyone had a great Holiday season and hope that you didn't gain an extra 44lbs from all those holiday meals. Go ahead, eat that leftover turkey. Its getting cold.Read More
