Cosplay Boudior Photo Shoot

By Mort Productions

We are starting off 2019 with a bang by launching our very first Cosplay Boudoir Photo shoot!

We have gathered our homies Chocozumo, Mort Productions, and Schyler Anderson Photography to work with clients in order to bring them quality photos. Whether you would like to dress up as your favorite fictional character or be yourself, all are welcome! Be sure to follow our Facebook event page as well for updates directly into your social media.

The event will take place on 1/19/2019, which is close to February! That gives you the perfect opportunity to get your significant other or fans that special gift for Valentine’s Day. The location of our event will be at Studio 1st located in Mesa, Arizona and owned by Mort Productions! We’re excited to get to work with the studio to provide a great space to take photos for this event. It is yet another step towards supporting local!

If you have little experience with boudoir, do not worry a bit since all three of our photographers are professionals and have a great portfolio!

The price for this event is $75, if you are doing a duo shoot it is $140, and trio is $195. Each solo/group client(s) is/are guaranteed up to a max of 30 minutes of shooting time. If you finish prior to that time and are satisfied with the session, that is completely fine! However, you can not go over just to ensure the photographers have ample time with each of their clients! The cost of the event will go towards snacks, water, rental of location, 30 min session with a photographer of your choice, and 4 edited photos! Because of the location, the slots for clients will be limited to 6 clients per photographer to ensure everyone gets enough time and space. If we do sell out, we’ll consider extending the amount of clients but there is no guarantee at this time.

Clients can bring one guest (significant other, handler, friend, etc.). They will be classified as ‘non paid’ and the photographers are not required to shoot them but can if they wish.

If you would like an extended session, more photos, or anything else, you’ll talk with whichever photographer you’d like to work with and pay them whatever amount they see fit!

Photos will be returned to clients 2-4 weeks after the event.

Payment will be through Paypal to darthmexican@thegeeklyfe.com! Please list in the note your cosplay name!

For the safety and privacy of everyone, we will not be allowing anyone who is not a client, staff, or photographer. As a client, you are allowed to bring a single person with you if you need a handler. Photographers may bring assistants if they feel it is necessary, and our female staff will be on site to assist anyone who needs it.

We will be filming and taking behind the scenes photos for our post event coverage. However we will only do so with participating clients as indicated by your submission email.

Be sure to include your name, cosplay name (If you have one), and which of the three photographers you prefer in the order of priority. You’ll be contacted shortly after to set you up with your chosen photographer and you can discuss ideas so that when the shoot comes, you’ll have an idea in mind! If you are a part of a group, list everyone in the group. If you overpaid, you will be refunded the over payment.

Schyler Anderson Photography

Schyler Anderson is a fantastic photographer that is experienced all various forms of photography from cosplay to products to fashion, and so much more!

We’re excited to work with her on this project and know she’ll do a wonderful job with ever single client that she works with!

Chocozumo

Chocozumo is a professional cosplay photographer based in Arizona. Ask the public if this man has talent and you’ll soon find yourself drowning in positive testimonials and examples of his work. He has worked closely with The Geek Lyfe over the years participating in both the 2017 Swim Suit Shoot and Horror Shoot. He was also one of the main cast of our Dungeons and Dragons charity event that was focused on raising money for Phoenix Children’s Hospital!

Mort Productions

Mort Productions is with out a doubt one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. We had the chance to work with him at our Swim Suit Shoot and Horror Shoot and he was an absolute professional! He is such a solid guy that is easy to work with and is always willing to try out new techniques. It would be worth your while to check out more of his work on his website and social media!

Previous Events

Horror Shoot

What happens when you have a convention drought in Arizona, talented photographers, fantastic cosplayers, and a crazy person(Me)? Well you get an event focused on great photo shoots in a unique location that offers the chance for cosplayers and photographers to meet one another as well as cosplayers and other cosplayers to help network and make new friends. All the while The Geek Lyfe is on site helping folks get what they need and meeting folks from the community.

For our Horror Cosplay Event we secured the location of Fear Farm which is a local seasonal establishment focused on scaring customers with various sets, actors, and effects. This would not have been made possible without the help from one of the participating photographers, Courtex Studios! We reached out to our friends, Tony JuliusCourtex StudiosMort ProductionsChocozumo, and Deegan Marie Photography to be our designated photographers. A number of cosplayers rushed to join in on the event and we had such a blast!

One of the many great aspects of Fear Farm was the various aesthetics each location offered. In it’s natural state, Fear Farm has five different locations from a clown mad house, a sci fi experimental site, slaughterhouse, an old western aesthetic, a corn field maze that leads to abandon vehicles and more. The event was like a playground to costumers and photographers alike as every single turn was a new possibility for a shoot.

Swim Suit Shoot

Our Cosplay Swim Suit Shoot event has occurred two years in a row now, selling out both times! This event takes place usually at the end of June and brings together photographers and cosplayers in order to enjoy some fun in the sun! They take their favorite characters and create costumes themed for the pool!

Deegan Marie Photography

Deegan Marie Photography has helped The Geek Lyfe out on a number of projects and she always comes with such a hardworking attitude and hustles to get assignments finished quickly and with excellent quality. It is a huge reason why she is the Chief Photographer! When it comes to her clients, she brings even more to the table by offering her expert opinion on what looks best and whips out as much equipment as needed to ensure an exceptional product.

In addition to cosplay photography she has worked extensively on both product and band photography. There is a very good reason she is so sought after in the community! She was one of the great photographers who attended our 2017 Swim Suit Shoot and Horror Shoot!

Courtex Studios

CourteX Studios is a veteran photographer of the AZ Cosplay community. He has created such incredible photos time and again with many notable costumers. While his skills are so adept that top tier cosplayers constantly reach out to work with him, he still remains humble enough to work with anyone. Shooting with Courtex Studios ensures you are taken care of and have a blast while doing so. He was one of the photographers for both our Swim Suit Shoot and Horror Shoot!

Tony Julius Photography

“Fantastic work” and “Tony Julius” are words that spill out of the mouths of so many in Arizona! He has been known as the go to guy if you want great photos. Every interaction I have had with the man has been nothing short of professional and pleasant. He is trusted by so many in the community whether it is with normal convention shoots or otherwise. He has shot at our Cosplay Horror Event and every single person that worked with him had nothing but great things to say!

Mort Productions

Mort Productions had always eluded me, but last year we had the chance to work with him at our Swim Suit Shoot and Horror Shoot! He was an absolute professional and he is still a unicorn demi-god of photography just as I had always believed! He is such a solid guy that is easy to work with and is always willing to try out new techniques. I highly recommend checking him out. He also has new gear for underwater photography!
