Head of Press of Colossalcon is Against Paid Private Photoshoots!

Let me start by saying that everyone has the right to disagree with paid photoshoots. I understand it is a touchy subject with some people. However, when somebody not only besmirches my character, but also threatens my livelihood that’s where I draw the line.


I will be circulating a formal letter of complaint among the photographers and anyone else who wants to sign it at Colossalcon this year. it would make me extremely happy if you participated! We need to stand together on this because it would be extremely unfortunate for not only the photographers, but the cosplayers as well if nobody is able to get nice images of their cosplays next year!
