Thread: Would you hire cosplayers for shoots?

    Default Would you hire cosplayers for shoots?

    Hello everybody !

    I'm posting here to clarify and seek comments and sort of doing an interest check for hiring cosplayers for shoots.

    I would like to check with the audience of CS if anybody is interested to try cosplay photography and would you pay the cosplayers to do a shoot for you.

    If you would,
    How much are you willing to pay, and are you a anime lover yourself?

    Also, i would like to ask if anybody 'hired' a cosplayer to do a shoot before and how was the final result?

    Any comment is much appreciated thank you very much !

    How does a photographer make money or advance in business by hiring cosplayers?

    Doesn't feel related to photobiz. Sounds more like cosplay biz.

    Nope, this section is for discussing business aspect of photography.

    there are people who are keen on shooting cosplayers, some may hire cosplayers, but this has noting to photography business, after all, who will want to buy such photos? are these photos have commercial value?

    typically people would not hire cosplayers but if promotional event requires it, there might be a niche. Also if certain business entities connected to anime and cosplay then I would hire one to shoot for promo posters, etc. Otherwise cosplayers usually operate on tfcd basis don't you think so?
