Photoshooting for SFMag

UPDATE 3 - We now have a confirmed final date and time. Spots are still limited, so please double check if you can make it. If not, please change your RSVP to allow those who can make the new time. See you all there!

UPDATE 2 From Lauren:

I just got word from her that she can't do it at the original time (7AM) and wants to move it to the afternoon of the same day. 

She said that she'll give me a new time soon. I'm really sorry for all the confusion.

I won't be able to attend personally since I'm doing Ponyfinder.


UPDATE From Lauren:

Cosplay is encouraged but NOT mandatory!

She's looking for people who share the hobby/interest, not just cosplayers.

Do you feel photogenic?
Do you want to represent bronies in a photogenic way?
Are you a cosplayer?

Lauren Murrow from SFMag is looking to photograph some local bronies to photograph for a section called in the magazine called "Affinities" -which highlights the members of one standout San Francisco-based group that shares some talent, hobby, or interest.

Here's a blurb from Lauren regarding the photographer, Margo Mortiz:

The official address is 1890 Bryant, but please use the back door on FLORIDA at MARIPOSA.
There is an unmarked gray/blue door to the LEFT of Coffee Bar on the corner.
Call/text when you're here and I'll let you in:[masked]-6062.
Studio #310

Lauren is looking "the most devoted local Bronies" but due to the size of the studio, she asked for only 11 people at max.


I'm gonna be there personally, and will keep updating this meetup to see if we get enough people interested.

See you all there!

    I may be half an hour to one hour late. I hope that will not be a problem.

    As crazy as it sounds, I'm on my way to the photoshoot right now...via BART. I'll be walking to Florida & Mariposa from the Powell stop on Market. It's going to be a long commute for me, so I hope the trouble is worth it...

    • Ian Alegre R.

      P.S.: I'll be wearing a Changelings tie + Rainbow Dash tiebar if you want to look for me.

    Damn, I just noticed that it's been moved up to today. I won't be able to make it. So much for getting a fancy new profile picture out of the deal. Hope someone else takes my spot.

    Anyone know where the nearest parking is?

    July 23, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      Looks like a lot of street parking but I don't know how it'll be on a week day.

      July 23, 2014

    • Tyfighter

      How are you getting there?

      July 23, 2014

  • Kendra W.

    Should I wear flutterbat or Vinyl Scratch or both?

    July 23, 2014

    • Ohad K.

      According to Lauren, everyone gets about 30 minutes, so if you can do a change of cosplay around that time, go for it!:)

      1 · July 23, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      Why not both?

      July 23, 2014

  • Ian Alegre R.

    I will probably try to make it with the new time. Chances are I'll have to use the BART to get there, who knows...

    Six hours for a photoshoot seems kinda excessive and with still only eleven bronies to volunteer. Hopefully there will be a couch for me to nap on if it isn't my turn yet or something. lol

    At least with Zona Foto, we arranged for a time, I made my accomodations, and we were done no more than two hours. Smooth operation.

    SHIT! 7-11AM off work I could have justified. I can't justify a whole day. >.<

    1 · July 21, 2014

  • Ohad K.

    Just posted an update. Sorry for the confusion everyone.

    1 · July 18, 2014

    • Quinnton F.

      Any update on the time?

      1 · July 20, 2014

    • Ohad K.

      Yes we do! The final date and time is now in the description!

      July 21, 2014

  • Ohad K.

    Sorry again for the cofusion everyone! I just talked with the photographer, and we decided on a new day and time that's ok with her schedule. Remember: you DON'T have to be a Cosplayer. Everyone's welcome!

    My mom may be driving me to this event and joining me for the photo. I'm having this since she has come to enjoy the show herself and I need someone to help me transport my Fluttershy suit for this.

    July 21, 2014

  • Tyfighter

    I would love to come represent as a brony artist! I am thinking of cosplaying as Button Mash. I'd actually prefer an afternoon time since I'm coming an hour away.

    July 20, 2014

  • Jamie B.

    It'd be cool to go :)

    July 20, 2014

  • Colin E.

    That's Comic Con Friday. :(

    July 20, 2014

  • Ed P.

    Unless I can get help and a ride, I can not bring my Fluttershy suit. If I can't, I'll just bring my Sweetie Belle plush. I would really like to wear my Fluttershy suit however. Hey, Ohad, think you may be willing to give a hand as you live the closest?

    July 18, 2014

    • Ed P.

      It's cool. I asked my mom if she would like to join in, so she may help me instead. Besides, I would love for her to see how things have improved since I started making friends with these groups and meetups. :)

      July 18, 2014

    • Ohad K.

      Glad to see you got a ride, but I'm not sure if your mom will be able to join us at the shooting itself. I've been told by Lauren that the studio is rather small, and she wants only the people who will be photographing in it.

      July 18, 2014

  • Ian Alegre R.

    I will consider going to this. If I can make it, it will be my second brony photoshoot...the first being Zona Foto's series.

    I don't cosplay and my MLP merchandise is quite limited, but I hope that shouldn't be a problem.

    July 18, 2014

  • Quinnton F.

    I'll make every attempt to get there. I'll update my RSVP as things change. I'll plan to bring my ponysuit.

    Wish we could go! But we're attending a different cosplay event in Oakland at the Art Museum that evening! It's open to all ages & types of cosplay - here's the link via facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/914684331880504/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming

    And here's the link to the event tix: http://www.museumtix.com/venueinfo/venueinfo.aspx?vid=843&tab=G

    Would love to meet some of you face to face! :)

    Friend me on FB!

    Lani

    P.S. My husband & I just did a Brony shoot a few weekends ago! :D And I think the photographer may be looking for more people to participate in her ongoing Brony series. If anyone is interested, please ping me!
