Photo Diary 2011, Volume 2


Welcome to Volume 2 of my 2011 photo diary. This is Volume 1 if you missed it. These are my 20 favourite photos from April to June 2011 that I feel represent my best work and experiences. I wasn’t on an overseas adventure like last year, so in our boredom Jody and I came up with the idea to start a website with a bunch of our friends called Geek Girls. The idea grew quick, the website got lots of traffic and all the sudden we were at the local Sci-Fi convention with our own banner and everything… and we have much bigger plans for 2012 which I am very excited about… ;)

London Ontario Photographer Dana Harper PhotographyApril 9th, 2011 This was our first official Geek Girls shoot and therefore an epic day that will go down in history! We shot this Lady Robin cosplay with the lovely Danielle Kennedy. We’re also lucky we found this location when we did because the building is torn down now!

London Ontario Photographer Dana Harper PhotographyApril 29th, 2011 Jody and I took another trip to Toronto and we decided to squeeze in a photoshoot while we were there. We found Gillian (who is an awesome & dedicated cosplayer) through mutual friends and she told us she’d love to do a Zatanna shoot! I feel bad I still haven’t got around to editing the full set yet, since this is the time of year I get super busy. But I promise the full shoot will be up on Geek Girls very soon!
