If you intend to charge attendees for photo shoots, we require you to purchase Credentialed Photographer Access. It’s only fair; anyone profiting from our event or attendees must be regulated, as we do with our vendors and artists.

Photography Access includes:

• Full weekend access to the convention

• Ability to charge attendees for photo shoots onsite

• Advertisements on EAF social media

• Priority access to the Photography room, backdrops and equipment

• Access to the press room for equipment storage in-between photo shoots

• Early entrance (alongside press) and reserved seating to the Costume & Cosplay Contest  plus other cosplay-related panels if space allows

This badge level has enabled us to purchase backdrops and equipment for the photo room. We will be able to add a staffer devoted to arranging cosplay meetups at the convention. Thank you for supporting our healthy cosplay photography community!

If you are planning on doing free photo shoots at EAF, you are welcome to pick up a complimentary credential from the Press & Industry office that will help alert attendees on your availability! It will read “FREE photo shoots.” Note that this ribbon does not include priority access to events.

If you are a press outlet, we instead recommend you apply for a press badge. If press outlets wish to charge attendees for photo shoots, they MUST purchase an add-on photography ribbon.

Please Note- Press outlets charging for photo shoots without this ribbon are subject to expulsion.

Fine print: Attendees must use common sense when understanding the rules of behavior, personal interactions, and respect for both private and public property. Behavior that is considered harassing or offensive will not be tolerated. Attendees, staff and other persons finding themselves in a situation where they feel their safety is at risk should locate the nearest security or staff member and they will be treated with the utmost urgency and expeditious manner to resolve that concern. We reserve the right to deny photographer badges or ribbons to anyone. If denied prior to the convention, your purchase will be refunded. If confiscated onsite due to conduct, there are no refunds for any reason per overall convention policy.
