Low key lighting and flaming hair are a match made in heaven. Flaming hair attached to a talented subject: bonus! Thank you, @mia_may , for your awesomeness. . . #lowkey #studio #studiolighting #flaminghair #singlelightsource
I honestly don’t know how she held that arched back pose for as long as she did, that’s a talent unto itself! This is @carmacosplay in her Elsa /Frozen cosplay. . . #frozen #disneyland #elsa #elsacosplay #disneycosplay #cosplay #disneyprincess #studiophotography #cosplayphotography #lowkey
@Mia_may , one of two Slytherin models I had the pleasure of shooting recently. The witch hat is slanted a little far though and she kind of looks like a witch about to enjoy a wonderful picnic in the park at midnight! . . #slytherin #slytherinhouse #witch #witchesofinstagram #cosplay #slytherinseamstress #harrypotter #moderndaywitches
@vandersnark , one of the all around best humans on the planet, who was generous with her time and spent it with me shooting in her Pandora cosplay this past weekend. Thank you JJ, you are always welcome to join us! #craftyourfandom #pandora #dc #portraitphotography #cosplayphotography #cosplay #darkforces
@thefeatheredhart was one of three witches I shot with last weekend, and I’m not even sure they coordinated to all show up as witches to the shoot, either! This is her gorgeous handmade design that, as you can tell, was perfectly created to accent her hourglass frame. You look incredible, Heather! . . #witchesofinstagram #witch #autumnwitch #cosplay #seamstress #cosplayseamstress #craftyourfandom
A couple of Slytherin getting ready for a stylish night on the town. @abbycatcosplay and @mia_may looking edgy, stylish, and a wee bit into each other. Both cosplays made by the respective model/cosplayer. . . #slytherin #slytherinhouse #slytherincosplay #cosplay #craftyourfandom #seamstress #portraiture #portraitphotography #studiophotography
Another shot of my ridiculously amazing wife in her Ravenna cosplay, but with hair unbraided for more a sultry/casual Friday look that makes it difficult for me to take deep breaths. We shot this in an epic evening photoshoot that will, so far, go down as the best shoot of my photographic life. Luckily, I believe there’s always opportunities for improvement, so we’ll just have to do it again sometime soon :) Entire Cosplay by @downen_creative_studios Image by @downenphotography Wig by @ardawigs . . . #ravenna #ravennacosplay #craftyourfandom #cosplay #snowwhiteandthehuntsman #myqueen #womenofcosplay #ardawigs #downencreativestudios #charlizetheron
@abbycatcosplay has a talent in creating amazing new outfits from old scrap material from past projects. This is her very recently created Slytherin House woman around town / near-zoot suit all made with scrap fabric, and all 100% classy. Well, except the hat. I mean, it’s classy, it just didn’t come from a scrap material hat, it was always a hat. :) . . #slytherin #slytherinhouse #scrapcosplay #seamstresstothegods #craftyourfandom #craftyourhouse #slytherincosplay
Two amazing Slytherin, two handmade house-inspired outfits, one image full of badass. @abbycatcosplay and @mia_may graced my studio with their talent and we walked away with some Slytherin gold. . . #slytherin #slytherincosplay #craftyourfandom #harrypotter #slytherinhouse #portraitphotography #portraiture #badasswomenofcosplay
My kiddo being all Bowie-tribute last night, thanks to him talking up @vandersnark and @deeladesigns while they prepped for their photo shoots. Well played, @me_zacko . . #portraiture #portraitphotography #teachthembowiewhentheyreyoung #ziggystardust
My awesome kiddo @crowsandskullscosplay helping Dad dial in the techniques on the studio lights. This is also Dad’s method of getting time and photos of his kid now and then! #portraiture #portraitphotography #mykidsrule
@mattgrigsby , my GQ looking buddy. He joined me for a great photo shoot last night, which proves he’s as smart as he is rugged. 😁 #portraitphotography #portrait #portraiture #gqlookingdudes #bw #bwportraiture
I’m working on a photo project that only requires a single light source. Once I’m finished with my shots, I wait to turn on the other flashes and we do a few more poses while the light is dramatic. That’s how I ended up with this stunning image of @carmacosplay. One single, dramatic light, one talented model, and one stunning image!

Seeing these two together warms my feels all the way to the Full side of the gauge. @vandersnark is more than a role model to @crowsandskullscosplay , she’s a goal, a warm heart, she’s unconditional love. My own heart lights up to see the excitement between these two when the front door opens and JJ is welcomed in once again. #familyinspirit #friends #booknerdsunite #brilliantwomenrock
@carmacosplay in her stunning rendition of Elsa from Frozen. We used her own train of her dress as a foreground element to achieve this wonderful “snowy” scene. The inspiration to use the train like this came from the brilliant mind of @downen_creative_studios , and required the ridiculously fun assistance of her, @thefeatheredhart , and @crowsandskullscosplay to achieve the results that were the icing on the photo session cake. Shot in my home studio using two strobes and one stepladder:) Cosplayer and dressmaker: @carmacosplay Photographer: @downenphotography . . . #cosplay #disney #elsa #frozen #elsacosplay #disneycosplay #portraitphotography #portrait #craftyourfandom #homestudio
Witches in December? But of course! This beautiful one is @thefeatheredhart in her latest stunning build with a bodice appropriately taking center stage. Shot in my home studio with a single 65” strobe #homestudio #portraitphotography #cosplayphotography #cosplay #thewitchesofpoetland
@modulusprops being both cyberpunk and intimidating in his latest build from Cyberpunk2077. Cosplay and fun by @modulusprops Image by @downenphotography #cyberpunk #cyberpunk2077 #propbuilder #propmaster #cosplay #videogamecosplay
One of the funnest shots I’ve done because we were trying just for the fun of it to match a very popular portrait by @sophiet , and we came pretty darn close! This is the lovely and ever fun @duchess_elf doing a pretty impressive job emulating Sophie being a supermodel. #sophieturner #craftyourfandom #matchingportraits #inspiredpose #sophieinrepose #learnfromthebest
