I started cosplaying in 2004, but found myself more interested in documenting the cosplay experience. I completed my BFA in photography from Parsons in 2007, and since then I've jumped full force in cosplay photography. I currently attend over 12 conventions a year, and spread my time between private shoots and working at the Cosprints booth.
Plus, I also have Marvel Cosplay & Costuming blog at Marvel.com, where I cover conventions and other evnets. Check it out at at http://fans.marvel.com/jstephens/blog/
