Hi Cosplayers and Anime Lovers!!!
First and foremost I would like to thank each and every one of you for allowing me the honor to photograph you in your cosplay.
Secondly, special shouts to to my friend who I met last year at AX: Jenn, Anthony, Riley, Jacob, and Angie. Thank you for supporting me in my creative vision, and for getting cosplayers to come to my shoot. It means to world to me!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! *HUGS4DAYS*
Lastly, but most definitely not least, I want to thank my wife (last photo) for coming out to support me. Thank you for always being there, and loving me for who I am. On that note, wifey and I decided that the cosplayer who took the cake this year was "person in the bathtub." We loved how creative it was to be unique and different. It gave us all a good laugh and pushes the boundary for cosplaying. However, this is not to diminish the hard work, sweat, and even tears (for some of you cosplayers) to put your outfit together.
As promised, these photos are all free to download for personal use only. DO NOT use these images for commercial purposes. These photos are strictly for the love of cosplaying, and an award for all you have done for the cosplaying community. In a world that is driven by monetary values, I want to take this back to building relationships and trust. I am not profiting off these images, so please report anybody who is/are using these images for personal profit.
Okay, enough of that talk. I want to let you all know that you have all made me so happy each day I went to shoot. Every time I showed some of you your photo(s) and you say, "Wow, that looks so good!" Or, ask me, "Wow, where can I get these?" It makes me feel like I have done my job to my fullest potential as a photographer.
Also, when you use these images to share with your family and friends on social media, please like my FB business page and tag the business page Heng it Up Photography. Or, follow me on Instagram @hengitupphotography and tag me when you post. I support you, so please support me.
