The lovely Brooke contacted me for some photos of her new cosplay Yang Xiao Long from the Anime RWBY. I had never heard of it and did some exploration through google to see what I could come up with for some fun photos. Surprisingly there is not a tremendous amount of detail on this Anime. It’s done by the same people who make Red vs. Blue. Sitting in my backyard I came up with an idea at least to try. After a quick chat with Brooke we were good to go. Now we decided from the get go that we would do two shoots and this here is only shoot 1. We are going to shoot the second half next week after Anime California.
I had such an amazing time shooting in down town Los Angels with multiple cosplayers and Nels Photos. We used the Disney Concert Hall and Grand Park for our backdrops with this ultimate in Spidey-Verse super shoots.

Special shoutout to my man Sanchith for helping out with lighting and just coming along for a good time. You can follow him on Instagram at @da_gowda.
Hendo was already shooting with another photographer that day as Tomb Raider and asked if I wanted a shot to capture the cosplay as well. Of course I jumped at the chance as you all know Photography is my outlet for stress. We set out to shoot at a couple of locations the first was a forest spot that I knew and the second was a rock pile location up in the top of the hills.
Both locations worked but the second location had the best sunset background.
