Seattle, Portland, Dallas, NJ, NYC, Philly, SF, LA

Dallas, TX: ~March 12-14New Jersey / NYC: ~March 16-19Philly + Allentown, PA: ~March 19-21Seattle, WA: Sakuracon - March 25-27Lots of bouncing between LA and SF in April, and mostly in SF starting May, including FanimePortland, OR: May 30 - June 1 - at this location, ideally something Chinese-inspired like Yona/Zhang Xiao Bai's art for shooting at Lan Su Chinese GardenI'm also considering London in May, though that is unlikely and very budget dependent. As for what I'd like to shoot, in Portland, I want something specifically Chine
Giving in to the Dark(er blue) Side
By popular demand, I made a Facebook page, to join my tumblr as yet another place you can stalk me. Awhile ago I posted a Google Doc of things I'd like to shoot. And I still keep that doc somewhat up to date, so check it out. I've also added a Facebook Album of photoshoot ideas too, which is maybe an even better format. I've been using tumblr to post all freshly finished shoots. Facebook content I may focus on planning and behind the scenes. That's not really something I share much elsewhere. And Deviant Art will remain the place for highlights. There's also a Google+ page I don't use at all, and a YouTube channel I hope to use someday.
tumblr and Feature on CosplayPhotograhers.com
I have not set up a FB page yet, but I may soon. Until then I have one more way you can follow me - tumblr. When/if I setup a Facebook page I'll post about that both here and there. (I have three tumblrs - that one for cosplay photos. Another for a photo per week, and then my base tumblr for random reblogs.) This month I'm featured on CosplayPhotograhers.com for winning their 2013 photo contest with my Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen cosplay photo. Sadly the rest of that shoot isn't online yet. I'm so backlogged I am trying to keep my list of stuff I want to shoot up to date. Earlier in the year, I completed the Euterpe Inori photo from that list. And
Stuff I want to Shoot
I general, I think I take the best pictures when I'm shooting things I know and I'm interested in. Also, for me, cosplay photography has gone from taking pictures of cool outfits I saw to being a form of fanart. I can shoot more than I can cosplay. So, to further my fanart, as well as hopefully making it easier for people who may want to shoot with me to approach me, I made a Google Doc of things I'd like to shoot. As a side note, for where I shoot - I live in California, near Santa Monica. I also visit the bay area (San Jose / SF) and east coast (NJ/NY/PA) regularly. I hope to visit HK+SG+maybe MY sometime in the next two years. I will pro
