SOLD OUT – (6/13 11:05 am)
The 2018 Geek Lyfe Swim Suit Shoot is upon us! Last year we had a complete blast getting bringing together cosplayers and photographers to produce quality content. In fact, we had so much fun that we are doing it again this Summer! We will be shooting at the same location, which is Cynorme’s wonderful casa located in Ahwatukee. It features a huge back yard equipped with a pool, hot tub, grassy area, waterfall, and more.
This event will take place on June 24th from 12pm – 9:30pm!
Here is a video from last year:
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!
Deegan Marie Photography(Sold Out)
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 (Sold Out)
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 (Sold Out)
“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 (Sold Out)
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!
How It Works
We are stoked to welcome back photographers from last year’s event and work with new faces! Our events are always focused on networking and producing quality content in a safe environment. The only people on site are Geek Lyfe staff, photographers, clients, and guests of the client. We provide food, water, sun screen, and whatever else we can to help make the day enjoyable for everyone involved.
The price for the event is $50! It’ll go towards food, water, 30 min session with a photographer of your choice, and 3 edited photos! Because of the location, the slots for clients will be limited to 4 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.
Food will be:
Pizza: Cheese | Pepperoni | Sausage
Ice cream sandwiches
Water will be provided!
External photographers will not be allowed for this event due to the location being a personal residence.
