Shoot Date: March 25-27, 2016
It's been a long weekend. Like... really long. It's over now and all we have left of this Wondercon are memories and photos.
I tried to set up a giant photo booth like I did at Anime Los Angeles, but that was quickly shut down by Wondercon security. I kinda saw it coming so my backup was my good ol' trusty mobile cart.
I hauled that thing around for all three days grabbing photos where I could of cosplayers, photographers, friends and whatnot. Overall it was still a wonderful experience, and even though I was "kicked out" a couple of times from the main lobby for having a light setup on the busier days.
This weekend has given me many ideas for the future and I'm so excited for trying to execute. Please enjoy the following 445 photos. If you feel like sharing, please tag me in the posts either as Gil Riego Photography on Facebook or @gilphotography on instagram.

It's been awhile since I've posted something on here. I've been busy with random things that goes on in people's lives. But everyone needs a break, right?
That's where Cosplay Gathering + Photoshoots LA comes in. I ended up seeing this event randomly on Facebook and on a whim decided to head on over. I grabbed my Profoto B1 and newly acquired 72in parabolic umbrella and tried to see what damage I could cause.
It had a very crazy ratio with something like a billion photographers to 8 cosplayers. Luckily it was an amazingly beautiful day and I took some downtime to just stare at the sky. But enough of that hippy nonsense; here are pictures.
