Carl Robinson

CGR Photography

Hi everyone, I'm Carl from CGR Photography NZ.
Many of you will have seen me around at cosplay events across the country, but for those who don't know me, I'm a photographer based in Palmerston North and have been shooting cosplays for about 4 years.

Whether it is something you bought off AliExpress or something you painstakingly hand stitched, the enthusiasm you have for the character shows through. I love seeing the care and effort you all put into your costumes.

My goal is to give you photos that remind you of the fantastic night you've had and make you say “Wow, I look amazing!”

Keane Chan

Capturing Cosplay

My name is Keane, I am a visual storyteller, capturing emotions and light with my camera. I have been capturing Portraits, Performances and Events for many years in Wellington.

To focus on my Cosplay brand I am known as Capturing Cosplay in the cosplay community. I like to tell stories with my camera and create a moment in time with the Fae, the Vamp, the Armour and the Dress.

You will see me roaming around the Costumiers Fantasy Masquerade Ball weekend during the day and night capturing your costumes in the Best Light.​

This photo booth is truly remarkable. It's ultra modern and has all the features you'd expect and more..

Themed photobooths on each night provide you the opportunity to create your own magic and memories with other guests and friends.

Photostrip bookmark available on the night with images captured also shared to our website and social media following the event.

With two decades of experience in the creative visual industry I can honestly say the Masquerade Ball Weekend is a visual spectacle unlike any other.

It's great to be able to share the attendees' joy capturing the creativity and hard work everyone brings to the party.

Hans Hockey

GWC Photography

Kia ora! I’m Hans and I am so happy to be photographing all your wonderful creativity for the 3rd time.

I use a mixture of flash and ambient light, especially for those outfits which have their own lighting.

Looking forward to catching up with those I know from this and similar events, and making new friends! And great photos thanks to you!​
