You there, behind the lens! Hello!

Due to Midoricon's unrivaled scenery, we draw in some of the most talented cosplayers and photographers alike! Want a chance to book with hundreds of cosplayers during Midoricon weekend? By subscribing to our directory, you’re getting the best possible exposure as we link all of our attendees with your portfolio, pricing, and weekend booking schedule. Midoricon will bring you and your clients home some one-of-a-kind shots you won’t be able to get at any other convention! Whether you’re just now building a portfolio or making your living behind the lens, we’ll help you make this a profitable weekend.

To subscribe to our photoshoot booking directory for Midoricon 2015, there will be a $20 fee for giving you exposure and making client accessibility through our website easier. We also ask for your permission to use the photos you take during Midoricon weekend for promotional material. Your photos may be featured on our front page image slider, subpages, social media pages, the 2015 gallery, flyers, banners and more. We promise never to profit directly from your work by selling prints, digital copies, etc. The fine print concerning this arrangement can be found below on this page.
