Recently, my boyfriend and I had the opportunity to do a cosplay photoshoot with Lesson 5 Photography in our Green Arrow and Speedy costumes. We were outside the McCormick Place in the loading dock area, which set the perfect scene for a couple of crime fighters like ourselves.
The man behind Lesson 5 Photography is Rich Johannsen from Lemont, IL. Photography
starting out as just a hobby for Rich. When he and I first met a few
years ago he was taking pictures at conventions, and taking interesting photos of his awesome toy collection. After a while he started getting lots of compliments
on his work, and photography became more than just a hobby. Rich eventually
got a job taking pictures at a local night club, which is where the majority
of his photographs are taken now. He's really trying to get more photoshoots
with people. Rich especially wants to do more photoshoots with cosplayers because he says, "Staged shoots end up being more interesting."
