Seems I've confused a few people, what with my pesky captions and all, so just a reminder - I am a photographer. I am also a costumer. I state in the caption of each image whether I took the photo, made the costume, wore the costume, etc. I'm not a cosplay model - if I am wearing a costume, I made it :)

My photo tumblr is here: and has teasers of each shoot as I shoot them :) I spend a bit of a ridiculous amount of time on tumblr, so it gets updated a lot more often than this thing does!

glad someone other than me is still cosplaying here XD
Many thanks for adding 'Aveline' to your favorites! :D
Hi, awesome work you have done. Nice job with the cosplay book. Great to see people making the effort in NZ.

I'm a hobbyist photographer based in Wellington & Auckland. 
I'm really interested in cosplay photography. Could you point me in any directions for collaborating with NZ cosplayers?

Hi Dylan! Thanks :D I'd check out the CNZ facebook group and introduce yourself there. A lot of photographers post and make a general inquiry about shoots and who's interested, with mixed results, but I'd recommend asking individuals directly as well. A lot of the time people seem respond well to a general call but not actually follow through, I think just because most of us are super disorganised! You'll have more luck asking people directly :) There are quite a lot of cosplayers in Welly, and HEAPS in Aucks, so start with the fb group and check out the cosplay new zealand tag on tumblr as well. I spam that tag a lot though, so apologies in might have to do some sifting through all my crap! But yeah, basically just ask people :P Just a heads up though, cosplayers are usually NOT models, and very frequently need a lot of direction. Bear that in mind, or you might end up pretty frustrated (I don't know what you're used to - ignore if not applicable).
