Cosplay Photographers in the Greater Toronto Area

Cosplay Photographers in the Greater Toronto Area

 

Article by: Geek Girl Jenn Marvel
Hey everyone, Jenn Marvel here I've complied a list of a few cosplay photographers in the GTA, these are a few of many I've come across the past few years. When I first started out, I had no clue where or how to find photographers, I mostly just took photos of myself or used photo booths at conventions. So I hope this helps for people just starting out or looking to use other amazingly talented photographers across the GTA.
