Abunai! 2022 Photo Studio Powered by DMVDBERG Photography
Would you like to have an epic photo of your cosplay or convention look? Visit the DMVDBERG Photography photo studio! You’ve spent hours, days or weeks on your costume and hard work will be rewarded with a stunning photo. We are just as passionate about cosplay as you. At their ‘fine art’ style set they can really make you and your costume shine. Their mission is to make the best (art) portrait possible.

Having your pictures taken is free, no charges, no strings attached. All photos are delivered digitally in High Resolution directly during the convention. A print option is also available and can be sent to your home address (Prices of prints may vary depending on size and material). So no worries about folds or damage to the beautiful print you ordered. You can of course also help the DMVDBERG team cover costs and ensure they will be back next year, via: ‘Pay what you want’. They will have a QR code you can scan for donations at their booth.

The DMVDBERG team consists of professional photographer(s), costume designers and LARPers. All with a passion for anime, cosplay and costume design in general. If you would like a real professional portrait of your hard work you’re visiting the right booth! Every portrait is special, even more so during conventions. Especially since we can finally meetup again and show off our cosplays and hard work. During Abunai you can also find the DMVDBERG team walking the floor. Feel free to say hi and have your picture taken with friends on the spot!
