Greetings to all of my watchers, family, friends, and fans,

I want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday no matter which one that you celebrate at this time of year. :)

Recently my page passed 5,000 page views. That is quite an accomplishment and honor. Thanks to everyone that took the time to look at my page. My page has changed a lot over the 2 and a half years that I have been a Deviant Art community member. My page is a reflection of my likes which include Anime, Video Games, Disney, DC & Marvel comics, artwork of all kinds, and one of my favorite hobbies Cosplay Photography. :)

Here is a reminder to everyone of one of my ways of life. I do my best to respect everyone no matter what race, religion, life style, profession, lack of profession, gender, politics, likes, dislikes, and so much more. One of my common sayings and beliefs is "Each to their own". I express my opinions from time to time so If I happen to offend someone with one of those opinions please forgive me because it's the last thing that I want to do is to hurt someone.

With that said the main mission for my page is the same. I want to share with all of you the hard work and fun that I have had taking cosplay photographs. As many of you have seen my Cosplay Photography ability has grown since I started my account here on Deviant Art. Also my mission is to be a part of this wonderful community and to check out & comment on all of the different works of art that is out their including cosplay outfits, drawings, and other cosplay photographer photographs.

In addition to showcasing cosplayers outfits & cosplays I will be doing more tributes to different Anime, Video Game, Manga, and other series. Also I plan on doing tributes to Disney, DC Comic, and Marvel series. These tributes will include my thoughts on the series and photos that I have taken related to them.

I wish everyone well and to have a Happy a prosperous New Year.

Take Care,

Journal History

Here is my Story:

I started to do Amateur Photography when I was 7 years old. Having just over 40 years of experience I have been able to take pictures of a wide variety of subjects over those years. Photographic categories have included travel, nature, history, geology, family, and people.

A new photographic category has recently gotten my attention that I'm very excited about. I have been taking pictures of Cosplayers since 2009. When I started going to Cosplay / Anime cons I was surprised by 3 things. Most Cosplayers wanted to have pictures taken of them and they would even pose at times for the pictures. I was also amazed at the number of Cosplay outfits which were mostly hand made.

Being born on Halloween I have always liked costumes in general. Cosplay outfits are a few magnitudes better and higher classed than store bought costumes. A dream came true when I combined my Love of Costumes and photography together into a new interest, Cosplay Photography!!

For the first time in my life other people including Cosplayers at the Cosplay / Anime conventions wanted to take pictures of me!! Like a lot of photographers I'm a bit shy about having pictures taken of me.

About 50 pictures were taken of me in my Star Trek Cosplay outfit at my first con. After that experience much of my shyness went away and I was definitely hooked on Cosplaying, taking pictures of Cosplayers, and going to the cons. You can check out photos taken of me in my cosplay outfits in "My Cosplays" album.

My first venture into the Cosplay Internet World was creating a ACParadise Page. It was a wonderful experience creating my profile their and showing off my Cosplay outfits. Then I created a page. On that page I started to showcase and share my Cosplay photos. Now I have a brand new Facebook Photography page that showcases my Cosplay Photos, has special Photography features, and where I promote Cosplayers, Photographers, and Artists.

On this site I will showcase the photos that I have taken of Cosplayers and their outfits. My photography hobby also includes pictures that I take when I go on outings and often shed light on many of my interests. On this page I have two examples of my other photography work in my "Manistee" and Crystal Gallery Albums.

Check this DA page often to see new photos that I have taken of other cosplayers and even new ones of me!! You can follow my Cosplayer / Cosplay Photographer journey by reading my journals.
