As a photographer, it always brings me great pleasure to know that the photos I take are appreciated, whether it be positive or negative, but an even greater pleasure if they are used in publication. Ever since I had my shiny camera, it brought about some wonderful opportunities and experiences, and pretty much all of it is self-taught. The GSC Manabi figure I took photos of will be used in Mondo, a Hungarian anime/manga magazine (yet to see how that one looked). Of course my photos aren’t just limited to figures. Come convention time, I’m pretty trigger happy and the photos come flowing through. Some of you may remember me mentioning that I did a photo shoot for Madman Entertainment during Supanova last year, well they finally got published!
Anime Update is a mini-magazine released by Madman Entertainment bringing us some info on some of the latest Australian releases. Most of the stuff covered in this magazine are things I’ve already watched, but it’s nice to know what the local market has to offer as it’s sure cheaper than buying the Japanese DVDs. Anyway, the part I’m most interested in was this:

The photo shoot I did was of the winner of the Sunday cosplay competition, Freddy Krueger. Seriously, when I saw his costume up close, it looked so freaking awesome. Anyway I’m happy that my photos are being used somewhere and I can only hope more opportunities like this will arise. So in the meantime, I’d like to thank Slykura of Madman Entertainment for giving me the opportunity to take photos for him, and also my photographer pal Bubby for informing me about the article, as well as scanning it for me.
