Polly Cosplay Photography
Stockholm, Sweden

Hey! I’m a 25 year old photographer from Stockholm, Sweden. I shoot auction objects by day and cosplayers by night – well, more like on weekends… I started doing cosplay photography out of curiosity during photography school, as I chose it as a graduation project. It really opened my eyes and I knew that this is what I wanted to do! I’ve always had a problem finding my “place” in the photography world and thanks to that project I felt like I had finally found it.

My ambition and vision with my cosplay photography is that I want the photos to look like it’s a still taken from the movie/tv show/book/video game/whatever that the character is portrayed from, and so far so good I’d say.

As of today I’m involved as the official photographer of the Swedish Cosplay Championships and the Nordic Cosplay Championshops – shooting my first “gig” at last year’s NCC held in Link√∂ping, Sweden. My favorite thing so far is probably to meet the humble cosplayers and see their handiworks up close and get personal.
