Cosplay/Renaissance/Historical Characters Models

Photograph period costumed people! All experience levels welcome. This is a great opportunity for those inexperienced with taking people pictures. Come and try your hand at portrait photography without worrying about posing or lighting since character models already know what their best poses and expressions are. This is a great opportunity to create a dramatic portrait image. Tamron loaners will be available. 

Monitored character model sets

  • Each photographer may photograph the model several times over a maximum time of two minutes.
  • There will be several different professional constant lighting setups.
  • No external flash allowed.
  • The type and number of models will be constantly changing to offer a wide range of photo opportunities.

Model Release

  • Models sign a limited “Model Release” granting permission to participating NECCC attendees to use images taken at the conference for personal use only.
  • Personal use is expressly limited to camera club activities as well as personal websites and your personal business card. There are no exceptions to this granting of permission.
  • A photograph, print or digital, of a conference model cannot be offered for sale, even at a very inexpensive price.
  • All models have been told that they will not sign any model release for any photographer during the conference. If the photographer pressures them, models are told to refer that photographer the model organizer.

Guidelines for emailing photos to models

  • Please help the models enhance their portfolios by emailing photos to them.
  • Email your processed photos directly to the individual models.
  • All the models will have their name and email information available throughout the weekend on a card posted where they are posing.
  • Send as many photos as you wish.
  • Photos should be sized reasonably for emailing, generally between 1000 to 2000 pixels on the long side.
  • As JPEG files.
