With the growing popularity of cosplay in the world of pop culture (as well as our own Best Cosplay Ever feature), the cosplay community has grown rich with costumers who specialize in creative and intensive skills, from sewing to prop work to makeup artistry, to help bring their beloved fictional characters to life. However, one cannot deny the integral role that cosplay photography plays in the cosplay community, both in properly documenting costume work and in utilizing their own artistic talents to complete the transformation that brings a fictional character to life.

Best Cosplay Photography Ever will place an occasional spotlight on a specific cosplay photographer whose skills could put Peter Parker to shame! Today’s featured cosplay photographer is Mike Saffels, who showcases talented cosplayers with his signature stunning portraiture.
