Shooting people is fun. and Shooting people in weird situations is even more fun. A recent group cosplay shoot here in Brisbane was an opportunity to do something a little different. We shoot a lot of cosplay so decided to do shoot some ballerina poses in different locations – and just for fun throw in some cosplay – in the form of Death – the grim reaper complete with scythe in the background!
The locations we utilised were the Powerhouse Museum in Brisbane and Fort Lytton where we had access to an old Autoclave unit used for sterilising things in the quarantine days.
Here are some of the shots – including a fun one where Ben and his fiance posed together.
When the DC Bombshells contacted us to shoot their calendar for Supanova 2015 we were pretty excited. Along with a couple of other photographers we created the shoot to show case each of the characters and provide high quality edited images for print. In all we have 7 of the 12 images in the calendar. The calendars were created and printed to raise funds for Look Good Feel Better.
We love Supanova! The annual pop culture convention is a fantastic time of crazy costumes, wonderful people and fun. We always love to shoot candids of the crowd and people as well as posed images for those who catch our eye. In addition this year we also shot a spread for the DC Bombshells Calendar. This will be showcased in a separate blog post.
All the unedited sample images are on Facebook in these galleries:
Natasha Romanov - code name Black Widow is a member of the Avengers team. She was born in Russia, where she received her training at a very young age, before being recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. She is played by Scarlett Johansson in the films Iron Man 2, and The Avengers. While at Supanova we discovered her capturing Lex Luthor and just being generally awesome!
Its tough being the bad guy – but Lex Luthor makes a career out of it – we shot him hard at work overseeing his minions and ensuring that chaos and mayhem continued unabated at the Gold Coast Supanova. Eventually however he got locked up and did some hard jail time. Finally he convinced some gullible girls to bust him and and secure his freedom and he made good his escape through the underground car park.
