Golden Ticket Cosplays

I am an international professional travel photographer who started attending conventions with my children years ago. I immediately fell in love with the Cosplay culture and decided to combine two of my greatest loves: Cosplay and travel. The goal of this personal project, Cosplay 50: The United States of Cosplay, is to photograph amazing Cosplayers from every state.

I bring an entire studio (all 7,500 pounds of it!) to conventions and scour the floor to find exceptional examples of Cosplay. They are then given a Golden Ticket which entitles that Cosplayer to a free thirty-minute professional supermodel-type photography session. Every session is unique and is loads of fun. Golden Ticket holders receive a fully retouched, high resolution, non-watermarked image for their personal use after the convention.
