Q: Why would I want this rather than a “selfie” at the guests’ table?
A: Firsty, you will be unable to have more than one actor at a time in a “selfie” or photo taken at their table, so if you are interested in a group photo, you will definitely want to purchase a professional photo op. Besides the group aspect, you get several other advantages to the professional op – backdrop, lighting, professional photographer, and printed photo, just to name a few. If you like to have a digital version of your photo, those are available for purchase as well in advance or onsite. And, if you purchase a professional photo op, as long as you are in the Photo Ops Area to line up at least 10 minutes in advance of the scheduled start time, you will be guaranteed to be able to get your photo taken. In fact, you can even purchase a professional photo op and take a photo with every celebrity appearing at the con on a particular day, if you wish! The same cannot be guaranteed with table photos. Finally, the printed 8x10 photo that is provided to you within one minute of the photo being taken is a perfect souvenir to frame, or to take to the guests' table and have them autograph! (Additional fees apply for autographs.)
Q: Where can I find the celebrity photo-op schedule?
A: The celebrity schedules for panels, autographs and photo ops can be found in the “Schedules” tab closer to the event. Additionally, please check the screens in the photo op room the day of the show for the most up to date photo op schedule.
