Cosplay Photoshoot – Rules
Set Up & Clear Down
To keep things on schedule, Shoot Captains should arrive at their designated photoshoot locations 5 minutes PRIOR to the shoot to plan and organize any photographers and participants in the photoshoot as they show up. This is so that the shoot can begin promptly at the scheduled start time.
Shoot Captains should remain aware of how much time is left in their shoot and start wrapping up at 5 minutes until the end of the shoot.
Ultimately, Shoot Captains are responsible for the state of the photoshoot area and it is expected that the location be left as it was found. It is encouraged that all participants assist in the cleanup of their photoshoot location as to make the process go faster.
Scheduled Shoot Priority
In the event that a photoshoot location has down time between scheduled shoots, attendees are free to utilize these areas for random photo ops. However, remember to be respectful of any scheduled shoots. Once it is time for a scheduled shoot to begin, that group has priority to use that location and it is expected that anyone not participating in the theme of that shoot is to leave the area. Failure to comply will result in the Ohayocon public safety department removing you from the area.
A link containing the Times and Locations will be available on the Ohayocon Website and Official Ohayocon Photoshoots group on Facebook.
Be Courteous and Respectful
Please observe the Personal Interaction Policy, as well as all other policies, outlined in the Cosplay Rules.
If you are attending a photoshoot, please be courteous to other participants and photographers; do not block shots, do not touch items or equipment that does not belong to you, do not be loud and/or obnoxious to anyone.
Please be respectful to your Shoot Captains and follow their direction throughout the photoshoot. They have volunteered their time to organize this shoot and everyone wants it to go as smoothly as possible without disruption.
If you disagree with the way the shoot is being run or do not feel comfortable with the set up for a particular photo op, excuse yourself from any part of the photoshoot.
