Although I should just have spent a wonderfully warm Sunday at home recuperating from attending too many events and photoshoots the week before, I just could not say no to the invitation of our wonderful friend and cosplay associate correspondent Eiri Mina to attend a rather interesting event.

The WPPP Photo & Video Congress 2013 was held at the Megatrade Hall 3 of SM Megamall last June 7, 8 and 9 with much fanfare.  It was organized by the Wedding and Portrait Photographers of the Philippines (WPPP), an organization of professional photographers whose purpose is to promote and foster the goals and programs of wedding photographers.

The event featured lots of attractions for photographers and curious, visitors alike to enjoy. Booths of major camera and accessory  brands were there to give out freebies and interactive demonstration of their products.  Models were all over the place too, endorsing products, then posing for the crowd, as well as having fun interacting with each other.  There were also seminars about photography going on in different parts of the hall almost all the time where both pros and newbies alike get to learn and share their knowledge with their peers.

All these great things aside, I was really there for the cosplay. There weren’t a lot of cosplayers there as it was not really a cosplay event, but there was a pretty handful on hand to pose for the cameras as they added a bit of color and variety to the event. Photographers had a heyday taking their pictures in the many interesting backgrounds provided at the event.

It was a refreshing experience for the cosplayers as they got to interact with photographers in a different kind of setting as they promote cosplaying as an interesting subject for photography.
