Stop Sleeping on All This Talent

Written by Cole Bekah I want to start this off by saying that I love the photography community I am a part of. It’s full of some of the most supportive and wonderful people I have met, but lately, I’ve noticed some recurring trends in the way some photographers approach who they work with that really bothers me. The first trend I noticed as I became more involved in the community was the lack of p...

Interview with Elena Kampouris of Sacred Lies

There are few things more fantastic than the tales of the Brothers Grimm. Many of us know and love the Disney takes on Snow White, Rapunzel, and more, but their origin stories are far more, well, grim than we realize. Those original stories are a heart pounding read and will send a cold chill down your spine. Thankfully, more of those tales are coming to light with modern series. One of which is S...

Cosplay Handlers, the Real MVPs Vol 1

When it comes to the world of cosplay, it is so easy to get caught up in the sheer beauty of the costumes.

AZ Cosplay Photographer, Adam Walsh, Has Passed Away

There is a line, “Tomorrow is never promised today,” that I had heard when I was young and it always stuck with me. That one line is such a hard truth that many of us tend to overlook in our day to day lives. Unfortunately, every so often we are reminded of this harsh truth when a friend passes away. Today I am sad to announce that the Arizona cosplay community has lost a photographer ...

Schrei205 Interviews Glenn Rane (Warning: Fangirling Within)

World of Warcraft holds a special place in my heart for a huge variety of reasons. One of those reasons includes the incredible art that accompanies the game, from the illustrations, to the concepts, to the in-game scenery. The quality of Blizzard art has always been truly impressive, and I was so excited to hear that a long-time Blizzard artist, Glenn Rane, would be a guest at Phoenix Comic Fest ...
