I posted in a bunch of cosplay pages on Facebook, and Coy filled out my interview! I checked out their page and their work is beautiful! Definitely 10/10, would book at Naka. Based around Kansas, they are amazing and I am so honored to interview them. I really hope you read up on them and consider booking them for your next cosplay shoot!

What got you into photography? My first major interest in photography came when I bought a camera off a friend before travelling to Scotland. I wanted to take pictures and capture the memories I'd make. The cheap camera and I hit it off, and when I came back home I just couldn't put it down! I started photographing free for local events and organizations, and eventually gathered an interest in cosplay photography. I've been going to Naka-Kon since I was eight or nine, so I figured I would start there.
What's your favorite part of photographing Cosplayers? There are so many cosplayers that don't get the recognition they deserve because they can't afford to advertise themselves, I enjoy putting a smile on their face and giving them some epic photos.
Words of advice for budding photographers? I'd like to think I'm still a budding photographer myself. All I can say is just get out there and do what you enjoy, not necessarily what people expect from you. Be creative, be passionate.
Favorite Genre/Fandom you enjoy photographing? I really enjoyed photographing the Star Wars group from last year. They brought about a certain energy that just fit well with the pictures.
Favorite convention to Shoot at/attend, and why? Naka-kon! I have quite a bit of memories here, having been going for so many years. It's also close by which really matters for my budget, being a non-profit photographer and all.
