So I started going through the EyeCon website, and I’m looking at the schedule of what’s going on. So there are a few different scheduled events, the Q&A sessions, Photo Ops, and autograph sessions. As I continue to read, I decide to click on the policy page, because I’m generally the one who ends up breaking rules.
and I see this:
Photography / Video
Still photography is permitted. However, please note that the stars that are contracted for professional photo sessions cannot pose for personal photos. Video photography is not permitted.
Most celebrity guests are bonus guests and are not compensated for their appearances, so they charge a small fee for their autographed photos. You are under no obligation to buy anything from our bonus guests, but if your budget allows, pick up an autograph or two to thank them for coming to the convention! (All patrons with ANY level of ticket – are invited to visit the autograph room).
Ok, so this seems a little strange to me…no personal photos, only professional???!? So I go ahead to the “more” link under Photo Ops. and I almost fell outta my chair after reading this.
Please note: The Photo Ops are the only way to appear in a photograph with our guests and also the only way to appear in a shot with more than one celebrity guest at one time (group shots).
