Pricing

 

For Anime Conventions…
 

For the year 2013 and beyond, I’ve decided that the best way to use any earnings from my photography at conventions would be towards making better pictures and making appearances. So any earnings from conventions will be used towards either:

  • Travel Fees / Lodging / Convention Registration
  • Purchase of new Photography Gear
  • Maintenance of Photography Gear
  • Promotion of Rensuchan Photography

This way, you know that when you’re paying me for a service that the next time we work together we may be able to produce even better quality, or we may even get to shoot at that convention I haven’t been able to make it to before due to lack of funds! In general, a convention like Anime Central costs around $400 for both me and my girlfriend to attend. To be able to schedule ten shoots worth $40 would pretty much allow me to travel to the convention to photograph you all without breaking my bank!

Thank you for your continued support!

Planning Session?
Standard $352$5505JPGHighYes
The standard package! Typically these shoots last 30-60 minutes, and then up to 50 of the best images will be selected at the photographer's discretion. The selected images will be presented as proofs and the cosplayer(s) will select their favorite five images. Those five images will be fully retouched and given to the client. Great for individuals and pairs!
I shoot, You Edit! (ISYE)$35/hrXXXXRAW / JPGHighYes
Some cosplayers prefer to do their own edits... so if you want me to shoot your cosplay but you do the editing yourself, I'm happy to work with you. The base price is $35/hour with 1 hour minimum purchase.

I definitely give my best for my clients. As such, all paid packages include consultation with the photographer. This is a planning session that takes place before photos are shot to discuss the character(s) and plan poses to make sure you are getting the photos you expect from our session. Doing such a session will make the shoot smoother and definitely increase the quality of the produced photos so please take advantage of this! If you don’t see any package that meets your needs please contact me and we’ll work something out!
