Otakuthon 2016 Montreal

I dedicate this post to Howard Naud one of the organizers of the Montreal Otakuthon event. For the past few years he has been convincing me to come and take pictures at the event and every year I was busy or out of town. Also I knew and still know nothing about the characters and the event. This year I said I would make the attempt to go, and had a model who would pose for me and of course Howard would be there; but on the day I was to go both said they would not be able to attend! My security blanket taken away. I was about to cancel myself, but decided to lighten the bag of photography gear I had prepared, which was still too heavy, and forced myself out the door. Here is the edited result, which was no easy feat. I am so very thankful to all the participants who graciously posed for me, your creativity and energy was absolutely amazing! I thank everybody who came to this event and all those who helped make it happen whether I saw you or not you were all part of this amazing experience. Deep bows of gratitude! Cheers Michael (ps to those of you who don’t see your picture here write to me and I will send it your way … there were so many great shots which had to be edited out)
