Our Photographer for 2022:

My name is Mark Edwards and I’m a photographer based in Los Angeles. Growing up in Virginia, I found myself captivated by films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Quick and the Dead, and Blade Runner. I moved to southern California in the late 90s to pursue a career in film and landed my first role working for James Cameron on Titanic, which resulted in 15 wonderful years of working in post production/visual effects.

Today I am a full-time photographer specializing in live events, portraits, and branding in Pop Culture for companies such as Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Disney.

You can find me on Instagram @mark_edwards_photographer or my website www.markedwardsphotos.com

Mark will also be our roaming photographer this year.

Do It Yourself Photo Booth

two people taking picturesShould you wish to have a simple backdrop to catch a few camera pics or try out your new fancy camera, our DIY Photo Booth will be up in its usual place outside of Salon D (Exhibit Room). There will be lights and a backdrop available for anyone to use just outside Salon D in the Hallway. Good for selfies and group shots! This area is not associated with the professional photographer. Ribbons are not required, but please watch out for the electrical cords and hot lights.

 The DIY Studio is open to everyone.
