Hi, I’m Dominique, one of the halves known online as CineCosu: business partners and long time friends who shoot cosplay photography and videography. I feel awkward talking about myself in the third person, actually, talking about myself in general. I shoot wedding videography for monies, cosplay photography and videography for likes. LOL jk. But really, I do it for fun and to get the creative juices flowing. My inspirations include travel and good storytelling and movies (hence “cine” = “cinematic”). Anyway, hope you see something you like! Drop me a line for more info.

I’m a cosplay/music/fashion photographer based out of Orange County/Los Angeles, CA. I use photography and art to tell a story. Most of my work is inspired by the lore or vibe of the subject’s surroundings, so try to emulate what emotion of what is going in the overall composition, as if I were freezing that moment in time.

Mixing cosplay with photography has been my passion ever since moving from my hometown in England. I picked up a camera and was introduced to the world of pop-culture and gaming. Being able to bring the characters to life through the incredible talents of the cosplayer and the magic of photography/editing is what I strive for. Mixing multiple mediums to create a unique style is something I also love doing, especially with practical effects and surrealism.

Hi! My name is Shila and I’m a photographer from Stockholm, Sweden.

My love for cosplay photography was born in 2010. By then I had been a part of the cosplay community as a cosplayer for some time and it made me very interested in the photography culture that revolved around cosplay.

What fascinated me with cosplay photography was how much potential it had and I found myself experimenting with my own photographic language in ways I never expected. Today my work is heavily cinematic in it’s style and storytelling is my main focus in delivering a shoot. Ambience, mood and setting is the core of my work, hence I love working with photo sets that really invites the viewer into the world of the character.

@sorairo_days

Hello! My name is Sarah, also known as Sorairo-Days and I’m based in Washington, DC! I started off as a cosplayer back in 2009, and started dabbling into the photography aspect in 2013. After not being totally happy with solely being a cosplayer, I started teaching myself how to use my first DSLR so I could branch out more within the cosplay community and haven’t gone back ever since!

I’m often found shooting while cosplaying because I hate myself, will do anything to get that golden hour glare in my photos and the Canon nifty-50 is my best friend.

@dietary_fiber

A guy with a camera, a passion, and a vision. Someone who can not be excited by a normal photo ever again. I have lost sleep and track of time trying to improve myself, yet in my heart I know I will never become the best, because I would have to sacrifice the notion that I can always be better than who I was before. My principle, my brand, desire and curse is to always try something new or my best, least I bore myself.

Alive Alf Photography

@alive_alf

I discovered photography in 2009, specifically photographing people in costumes, known as Cosplay. In 2014 I decided to quit my job as a Graphic Designer and pursue photography more seriously. That December I moved to Los Angeles to study Fine Art Photography and in 2016 I graduated from the New York Film Academy with a MFA degree. Everyday with every new job I learn and grow as a photographer, both technically and theoretically. I am constantly inventing new and unique concepts from political to fantasy stories, from eastern culture to western culture, all ages and all races. My goal is to not just make a beautiful photograph but to create images that are also meaningful and thoughtful for both the viewer and myself.
